Default Peugeot 2008 Review

The Peugeot 2008 delivers on style and that all-important raised driving position, but there are more practical small SUVs available

The Peugeot 2008 will appeal to anybody on the hunt for a higher driving position and increased practicality over the traditional small hatchbacks. Compared with alternatives such as the Suzuki Vitara and Honda HR-V the 2008 is more comfortable and comes with a more stylish interior design.

The Peugeot 2008 went on sale in 2013, but got a refresh in 2017, where its bumpers were redesigned and its grille was made black. Peugeot also added an automatic gearbox option to the 1.2 petrol model.

Unfortunately Peugeot’s uniquely tiny steering wheel remains, however, and so do the 2008s quirky dials located up near the windscreen. As such, the dials are quite hard to see through the steering wheel, but at least everything is more interesting to look at than in an HR-V or Vitara.

That said, the Peugeot 2008’s seats aren’t as supportive as those in an HR-V or Vitara and they don’t come with lumbar support (even as an option) to keep lower back pain at bay on long journeys.

There isn’t any better news in back seats. Because the rear doors don’t open particularly wide so hauling bulky child seats in and out becomes a chore, while head room in the back for tall adults isn’t great. That’s made worse on models with a panoramic sunroof, because it eats into the space.

With 410 litres of space, the 2008’s boot is more positive. Ok so a Honda HR-V’s boot has slightly more litres of space on paper, but the 2008 with happily swallow a pushchair and some large soft bags, although a week away will require more tetris-like packing.

It’s best to think of the Peugeot 2008 as a Peugeot 208 small car that’s been jacked up and given a bit more practicality, but also a higher price

The range of engines for the 2008 is large and all are reasonably clean and economical. Pick the 110hp petrol model if you spend lots of time driving around town, or the 110hp diesel if you spend more time on the motorway. You can get an automatic gearbox instead of the standard manual but only with 110hp petrol cars.

In all its guises the Peugeot 2008 is easy and comfortable to drive. It’s modest dimensions and light controls make it easy to thread through traffic in urban environments and it deals with lumps and bumps in town pretty well for a small SUV. It’s definitely worth considering if you want a small SUV that’ll help your kids nod off in the back.

It’ll keep you and your family safe too: it earned an impressive five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP back in 2013.The tests have been made stricter recently so newer five-star-rated cars such as the Vitara and HR-V will provide a little extra protection, but the Peugeot 2008’s funky interior and cheap-to-run engines mean it’s still worth putting on your shopping list.

Plenty of soft plastics make the Peugeot 2008’s cabin feel more upmarket than its price would suggest, but its odd instrument layout and small steering wheel can take some getting used to

Peugeot calls the 2008’s combination of raised dials and small steering wheel its i-Cockpit design, but If you’re very tall It might as well be called the i-can’t-see-the-speedo

You won’t have any complaints about the boot space, but it’s not hard to find alternatives that have more room for your passengers

Who on earth thought it was a good idea to have no adjustable lumbar support available in a 2008? What a pain!

The Peugeot 2008 is more comfortable over rutted roads than most small SUVs but its entry-level petrol and diesel engines feel wheezy at best and struggle to keep up with motorway traffic

Unlike some SUVs, the 2008 doesn’t try to be sporty – instead it focuses on being as comfortable and relaxing as a high-riding small family car can be
