Peugeot 2008 Review
As Peugeot’s smallest SUV model, the Peugeot 2008 is sized below the popular Peugeot 3008. With tough competition in its segment, the Peugeot 2008 has been refined throughout the years to ensure it remains modern and appealing. This includes the introduction of an electrified version. That said, what makes this Peugeot stand out from other similar SUVs? Read our Peugeot 2008 review to find out.
Peugeot first introduced this SUV in 2013 as a potential rival to the popular Nissan Juke. The latest Peugeot 2008 has a striking design with improved safety and driving technologies. When designing it, Peugeot clearly optimised all of the space in this five-seater, including useful storage compartments throughout. Also, we particularly like the excellent interior quality of the Peugeot 2008. The layout is well-designed, and the seats offer optimum comfort for all your family trips. Furthermore, the spacious boot, which comes in at 434 litres, appeals to families. This boot is slightly bigger than that of the Renault Captur and Skoda Kamiq.
The Peugeot 2008 is also a popular option due to its great choice of engine options. Firstly, there’s three versions of the 1.2-litre petrol engine, each with a different power output. These petrol models offer a decent performance and smooth drive. If you would prefer a diesel car, then there’s the Peugeot 2008 1.5-litre diesel engine, although it isn’t as powerful nor quiet as the petrol options.

Alternatively, have you considered electric car leasing? Well, this Peugeot car now has an electrified version called the Peugeot e-2008. This electric car can provide up to 206 miles on a full charge (WLTP). Although, it isn’t class-leasing, this should be sufficient for many drivers. Like the smaller Peugeot e-208, the Peugeot e-2008 can recharge up to 80% in 30 minutes from a 100kW rapid charging station! Also, the Peugeot e-2008 offers an excellent drive due to its quiet engine and next-generation technology. Plus, you get the added bonus of reduced motoring expenses such as lower maintenance and energy costs. This car will especially appeal to low mileage urban drivers looking for an SUV.
Also, the Peugeot 2008 has a range of trim levels to choose from and prices start from £21,365. The entry-level Peugeot 2008 Active Premium comes well equipped as standard and is available as a petrol, diesel or electric car. Key features include 16-inch alloy wheels, Eco LED headlights, automatic air conditioning and rear parking aid. Alternatively, at the top end of the range, the Peugeot 2008 GT Premium is available from £27,915. This comes with bigger 18-inch alloy wheels and upgraded interior details, as well as additional safety features. The GT Premium version is available as either petrol or electric.
