Ownership cost

What used Peugeot 2008 estate will I get for my budget?

An early car can set you back as little as £4000, but this amount is likely to buy you an example with either a large mileage or an underpowered engine. We’d suggest that you spend between £5000-£6000 for a 1.2 petrol or 1.6 diesel with a lower mileage from 2015 or 2016. If you want a more capable version with Grip Control, reckon on spending at least £6500 because the system was only available on more powerful, higher-spec models. Spend between £6000 and £8000 on a good 2016 model, or between £8000 and £10,000 on a 2017 or maybe early 2018 version. The last versions of this generation from 2019 should set you back between £9000 and £12,000.

Diesels are even cheaper to run, with the post-facelift 74, 99 and 118bhp 1.6-litre engines each achieving a combined average of 76.3mpg. Pre-facelift 68bhp 1.4 and 91bhp and 113bhp 1.6-litre diesels have a combined figure of 70.6mpg.

CO2 emissions

Go for either the 74bhp, 99bhp or 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel if you want the lowest road tax since they all emit 97g/km of CO2. The five-speed automated manual version of the 81bhp 1.2-litre petrol puts out 102g/km, while the 108bhp 1.2 emits 103g/km. Next up is the 1.4-litre diesel that manages 104g/km; followed by the 91bhp 1.6-litre diesel that produces 104g/km and the 113bhp that emits 106g/km. Both the automatic equipped 1.2-litre and 128bhp 1.2-litre petrols puff out 110g/km. The 81bhp 1.2-litre petrol manual is rated at 114g/km. The the manual and automatic 1.6-litre petrols are the worst for greenhouse gasses at 135 and 150g/km, respectively.

Road tax

Road tax for all models registered before 1 April 2017 will vary depending upon the emissions the engine produces (see paragraph above for more information) while examples registered after this date will have the same flat rate fee for cars that cost less than £40,000 when new. The current rate is £155 a year. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Servicing

Routine maintenance for one and two year old examples is pretty reasonable at a main dealer, costing £199 and £249, respectively. Once your example is over three years old, it'll qualify for Peugeot's fixed price servicing. A minor visit costs £179, while a major inspection is £299. This is broadly similar to what you'd pay for equivalent work at a Seat, Skoda or Volkswagen dealer.
