Introduction

What Car? says...

There are plenty of facts and figures in the automotive world. For starters, you’ve got engine size, fuel economy, luggage capacity and top speed. Then there are the names, some of which are seemingly picked from thin air. Others, though describe, the car pretty succinctly, and the Peugeot 2008 is a case in point.

Essentially, it’s a Peugeot 208 with a bit extra. In creating this sturdy-looking small SUV, the French carmaker took its popular rival to the likes of the Volkswagen Polo and stretched it in every direction – extending its name to match. It’s actually one of the biggest cars in the small SUV class and competes with a packed field of rivals, from the Ford Puma and Skoda Kamiq, to the Volkswagen T-Roc and premium Audi Q2.

The original 2008 was immediately popular, and this latest version brings that compelling package bang up to date. A generous increase in length should boost rear-seat leg room and boot space. Meanwhile, the fresh design inside and out gives it some classy visual flair, and alines the 2008's look with the rest of Peugeot’s latest models.

The 2008 is available with a familiar line-up of petrol and diesel engines shared with the 208, plus there’s a fully electric e-2008 version, which we’ve reviewed separately.  

This review focuses on the petrol and diesel versions, so click through to find out all about the Peugeot 2008 – from how it drives to how it compares against its rivals. We’ll also explain the best options if the 2008 takes your fancy, and, whichever car you decide on, head over to our New Car Buying pages for a great, hassle-free deal.
