What used Peugeot 2008 estate will I get for my budget?
An early, 2013 car will set you back £5300. But that will be for an example with either huge mileage or an underpowered engine. We’d suggest that you spend a bit more on a low-mileage 1.2 petrol or 1.6 diesel for £7500.
If you want a more capable version with Grip Control, reckon on spending at least £8000 because it was only available on more powerful, higher-spec models.
A facelifted 2008 from February 2016 onwards will require you to spend at least £9500-£10,000.
How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 2008 estate?
Most of the range is quite cheap to run, with only the 1.6 118bhp petrol giving any financial concern. A combined average of 47.9mpg and £135 road tax don’t sound that bad but, when you compare it with the rest of the range, it’s rather expensive.
The more efficient 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol has a much better combined average of 57.6mpg and £30 road tax, and that’s in its least fuel-efficient form. The more powerful 108bhp variant is a couple of miles per gallon better at 60.1mpg. And it knocks some money off your road tax, since it is only £20.
Diesels are even cheaper to run, with the pre-facelift cars both achieving a combined average of 70.6mpg and £20 road tax. After the refresh, they did even better with a combined average of 76.3mpg, which did enough to break into the free tax band.
If you are looking at a 2008 that was registered after 1 April 2017, then your road tax will be a flat rate of £140 for all models due to the government changing the car tax system for anything put on the road after this date.
If your 2008 is more than three years old, then it will qualify for fixed price servicing. Peugeot's fixed price servicing scheme is pretty reasonable, with prices that compare favourably with rival manufacturers' offerings. Even if your Peugeot isn’t at least three years old and doesn’t qualify, main-dealer servicing is on a par with mainstream rivals.
