The Peugeot 2008 (pronounced as Two Thousand and Eight or in French: Deux Mille Huit) is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by the French manufacturer Peugeot since 2013.

Explore the best small SUV - the Peugeot 2008 which exudes style and practicality whilst ensuring you a comfortable drive. Find out more here today.

The Peugeot 2008 has become one of the French brand's most important models, attracting over a million customers so far. Its second-generation car picks up where the supermini-based crossover left off, but it's even more daring, with a bold design and impressive new tech.

While the first 2008 played it safe with curvy, smooth lines, the latest model is far more angular, taking cues from the larger Peugeot 3008. An imposing grille, jutting chin spoiler and fang-like LED daytime running lights give it a quirky look buyers will either love or hate. In a class full of rivals including the Renault Captur, Skoda Kamiq, Nissan Juke and Ford Puma, manufacturers have learnt that bland looks don’t play well in this class.

No, the 2019 Peugeot 2008 SUV isn't a new car, but we've driven every other Peugeot SUV on video We wouldn't want to leave one out, now would we?

The 2008's interior is even more impressive, with a design and quality that puts most rivals to shame. Flourishes like the piano keys in the middle of the dashboard and the latest version of Peugeot's i-Cockpit look beautiful, quality is excellent and there are lots of surfaces finished in soft materials instead of scratchy plastics.

The car’s extra length means it’s more spacious, improving room for rear-seat passengers in particular. Legroom is now very good, and there's plenty of space for feet under the front seats. The rear seats don't do anything clever like the sliding ones found in the Skoda Kamiq and Renault Captur, but 434 litres of boot space isn't to be sniffed at.

There's lots of equipment here too, even on the basic Active trim, which gets alloy wheels and air conditioning. Top GT Line and GT trims look sporty thanks to bigger wheels and a black roof, and get lots of technology, but look expensive next to rivals. A GT Line 2008 with the middle petrol engine costs several thousand pounds more than the equivalent Captur.

The new platform underpinning the 2008 and 208 supports petrol, diesel and all-electric power, and we've reviewed the e-2008 EV separately. Sticking with combustion engines, there's 99, 128 and 153bhp versions of the 1.2-litre PureTech petrol and a solitary 99bhp diesel, but our pick is the middle petrol. It returns around 50mpg and offers all the performance most drivers will need with plenty of refinement. Handling is neat and secure too, and while all 2008's are front-wheel drive, there's a clever traction control system called Advanced Grip Control to help keep you going in slippery conditions.

Petrol, diesel and electric powertrains are offered

Like the Peugeot 208, the 2008 is based on the manufacturer's latest platform for building small cars. The main advantage of this is that it can accomodate petrol, diesel and electric powertrains. We're concentrating on the combustion engines here because we've reviewed the all-electric Peugeot e-2008 separately, but the EV's 193-mile electric range and 100kW rapid charging capability will certainly make it desirable to anyone considering an electric car.

Petrol models all come with a 1.2-litre engine with a turbocharger and stop/start system, making it fairly frugal, while a single BlueHDi diesel offered is only likely to make sense for high-mileage drivers.

Peugeot 2008 MPG & CO2

Most 2008s sold here are expected to be petrols, and Peugeot's 1.2-litre PureTech is available in three power levels. Official figures haven't been released for every version yet, but the 128bhp version can return up to 50.6mpg, while in the range-topping automatic this drops to 46.6mpg. Meanwhile, CO2 figures for them span from 102-121g/km depending on which engine, trim and wheels are fitted, figures which all result in fairly affordable payments for company-car drivers. Road tax for every 2008 (except the e-2008) will cost £145 a year.

Choose the 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel and fuel-efficiency increases to a maximum of 62.7mpg, with CO2 emissions as low as 96g/km, but the cost of buying the car is also around £1,600 higher, which could buy you lot of fuel. The diesel is also the most expensive car for business buyers when it comes to Benefit-in-Kind ratings.

Insurance groups

No insurance groups have been announced for the 2008 yet, but to be competitive it will need to cost a similar amount to cover as the SEAT Arona, spanning groups from eight to around 20 out of 50 bands. These should make it affordable for most buyers.

Warranty

Peugeot's standard three-year/60,000-mile warranty conforms to what has long been the industry standard, but brands like Toyota and Hyundai now offer five years of free cover, while Kia extends this to seven. It is possible to extend the 2008's warranty, but this costs extra, so is only worthwhile if you plan to keep hold of the car for longer.

Servicing

Like most mainstream manufacturers, Peugeot offers service plans that help protect owners against inflation on maintenance costs. This can be paid up front or via monthly payments, helping spread the cost of servicing. Petrol 2008s require a service every 12,500 miles or annually, while the diesel can go for 18,500 miles or one year between services.

4 / 5

Most buyers won't expect their small SUV crossover to be really great to drive, but an experience on a par with a well-sorted hatchback is appealing, and the 2008 delivers on this front. There are no nasty surprises in corners, it's precise and there's plenty of grip on offer. As with most small, supermini-based SUVs, the 2008 is front-wheel drive only, but Peugeot adds a system called Advanced Grip Control with Sand, Mud and Snow settings to help improve traction in slippery conditions. It can also help control the 2008's speed down steep slopes using Hill Descent Control.

Peugeot 2008 petrol engines

Depending on your budget and needs, Peugeot will sell you a 1.2-litre petrol 2008 with either 99, 128 or 153bhp. Every 2008 is front-wheel drive, and while the entry-level version is manual-only, the middle petrol is also available with an eight-speed automatic that's standard for the top engine.

All three are excellent, offering smooth power and decent refinement, although it can get slightly louder at higher revs. We've tried the 128bhp and 153bhp versions so far, and the former is our pick of the range, offering plenty of performance for most buyers and getting from 0-62mph in a brisk 8.9 seconds. The top version reduces this sprint to 8.2 seconds, which is unlikely to be that noticeable in day-to-day driving.

Diesel engines

With 101bhp, the 1.5-litre diesel has less power than most of the petrol range, but its 250Nm of torque is higher than all but the electric model. It comes fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox and can top out at 115mph, so a 70mph cruise should prove fairly relaxing.

4.5 / 5

If buyers aren't entirely sold on the 2008's looks, the interior could well seal the deal. Its sharp design and quality make most rivals feel dated, especially the i-Cockpit instruments. These create a 3D effect by layering screens, with the speed appearing to float above the other information.

Refinement is strong overall, except for a small amount of whistling from the door mirrors at high speeds, while the suspension does a good job of coping with bumps, even if it's a notch firmer than the Renault Captur.

Peugeot 2008 dashboard

As before, the quirky interior of the 2008 sees the instruments sit above the dashboard, with a small steering wheel beneath them. Some drivers may find their seating and steering wheel position partially blocks this display, so it's a good idea to take a test drive and see if it suits you.

Elsewhere, the interior impresses with neat touches like the piano key buttons for frequently used features, contrasting stitching (depending on trim) and plenty of soft materials instead of hard, scratchy plastics.

Equipment

Just like the smaller 208, the 2008 is offered in Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trim levels. Equipment is very generous, with even the basic version getting 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, LED headlights and a basic version of i-Cockpit. Allure adds bigger wheels and gloss black exterior trim, part leather-effect seats, climate control, parking sensors and the latest 3D i-Cockpit instruments.

GT Line versions get a style upgrade in the form of 18-inch wheels, more aggressive bodywork and a black roof. Lime green stitching contrasts with the rest of the interior, while ambient lighting with eight colours illuminates the interior at night. There's also some impressive technology, including a 180-degree rear-view camera, heated front seats, 10-inch infotainment display, sat nav, full-LED headlights and wireless smartphone charging.

The range-topping GT trim is exclusive to the top petrol and electric versions and adds twin-exhaust tailpipes, a panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control and extra safety features. Costing over £31,000, GT models are likely to be a rare sight.

Arguably the real highlight, the Peugeot 2008's interior beats most rivals

4 / 5

Peugeot has produced a string of very safe cars recently, and we expect the 2008 to be no different. It certainly comes packed with lots of safety equipment. Reliability is harder to judge because the car and technology is so new, but Peugeot has impressed customers in recent surveys.

Peugeot 2008 reliability

We won't know precisely how reliable the 2008 is until it's been on the road for a few years, but Peugeot has been doing well in this regard of late. The larger Peugeot 2008 SUV came an impressive seventh out of 100 models in our Driver Power survey, and the brand itself was ranked 12th out of 30 mainstream manufacturers for customer satisfaction. Reassuringly, only 14% of Peugeot owners told us their vehicle had experienced a fault within the first year of ownership.

Safety

Peugeot clearly knows how to build a safe car, but the Euro NCAP tests have continued to get tougher, and when tested in 2019 the Peugeot 208 on which the 2008 is based only scored four out of five stars, placing it behind some rivals. Hopefully Peugeot will be able to learn from the issues it faced to ensure the larger 2008 is a five-star car.

It's certainly fitted with lots of safety kit, including autonomous emergency braking that can detect pedestrians, lane-keeping assistance and traffic sign recognition. The range-topping GT version also gets extra safety tech like blind-spot warnings and adaptive cruise control.

It's early days but safety and reliability shouldn't be a headache

4 / 5

A growth spurt means the Peugeot 2008 is now quite a bit more spacious

One of the biggest reasons to choose a 2008 over a cheaper 208 is for its extra practicality. This is noticeable, with quite a bit more space for passengers and their luggage, which could sway a showroom shopper in its direction.

Peugeot 2008 interior space & storage

The 2008 might be based on the same underpinnings as the Peugeot 208, but there's 65mm more bodywork between the front and rear wheels. The most noticeable effect of this is improved legroom and knee room for rear passengers, and there's also plenty of space for their feet under the front seats.

Boot space

Boot space should impress most families, with 434 litres available behind the rear seats. That compares well against rivals, and while the Renault Captur can carry more luggage, you'll need to slide its rear seats forward, which also reduces space for rear passengers.

Towing

Petrol and diesel versions of the Peugeot 2008 all have the same towing capacity of 1,200kg for a braked trailer. That's not a great deal for an SUV, but is a decent amount for a small hatchback, and should allow owners to tow a small caravan. It's worth noting that the e-2008 isn't currently rated to tow a trailer of any weight, so if you need to do so, that could be a sticking point.
