Low figures relate to the least economical version; high to the most economical. Based on WLTP combined fuel economy for versions of this car made since September 2017 only, and typical current fuel or electricity costs.

Fuel economy

Petrol engines 39.1 - 51.5 mpg
Diesel engines 52.9 - 67.0 mpg

If you’re chasing economy then Peugeot 2008 running costs should make for pleasant reading. Even the petrol cars will officially return over 47mpg on the combined cycle and in theory the 1.2 VTi can achieve 57.6mpg.

A word of warning though; like the 1.4 HDi you have to work this engine very hard to extract anything approaching decent pace. As such that figure will likely drop to somewhere closer to 40mpg rather than nearer 60mpg.

Still, the diesels generally fare better and all will achieve over 70mpg on the combined cycle. It’s worth noting the 1.4HDi engine is no more economical than the 1.6-litre units on paper either, and will likely return a worse figure in the real-world due to its lack of mid-range torque.

Peugeot 2008 emissions are actually very impressive across the range. All engines emit less than 135g/km, while if you opt for a diesel the worst figure is a still impressive 105g/km. Currently there is only one engine and gearbox combination that emits less than 100g/km though; the 1.6 e-HDi 92 with automatic gearbox with its 98g/km figure.

However, the forthcoming three-cylinder turbocharged petrol 1.2 e-THP models are expected to emit 104g/km in 110bhp guise and a reasonable 109g/km in top-spec 130bhp output.

There’s been no Peugeot 2008 reliability problems recorded, and as much of its components and engines come from the 208 we can surmise the crossover will be equally impressive in these stakes.

And while parts of the interior aren’t particularly premium feeling, in general we’d expect it to be hard wearing. However, we have heard of a number of isolated incidents with the multi-function touchscreen crashing, so ensure that you get the device updated everytime you visit a dealer.
