It’s easy to become swamped by the number of small SUVs out there, but the Peugeot 2008 still manages to stand out from the crowd. The 2023 facelift freshened the styling and infotainment, while the good bits have been left well alone.

It’s related to the Vauxhall Mokka and Jeep Avenger yet is longer than both, making it the most practical member of the family. The 2008 is in a crowded market for small family cars, packed with some interesting rivals. Key competition comes from established names such as the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur. We’d also consider the spacious Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Cross.

But there’s lots more than that to like about the 2008. It’s available with decent line-up of engines, including perky petrols and even the all-electric e-2008. This underlines the company’s strategy of ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain’, offering all of its newest models with ICE or EV power.

The interior’s another high point, putting just about every other small SUV into shade with a really stylish design and superb build quality.

Thanks to its interesting i-Cockpit design, with low-slung steering wheel and high-mounted instrument panel and a selection of interesting and high-quality trims interior trims, the 2008 manages to stand out for passengers as well as drivers.

A range of peppy petrol and diesel engines completes the picture – all of which are eager with decent acceleration, offer refined cruising and are very efficient on fuel. Consequently, they also produce low levels of emissions. If you want greener, there’s also an all-electric version known as the e-2008, which is covered in its own review.

Over the next few pages we’ll be thoroughly reviewing all aspects of the Peugeot 2008 and rating them in our verdict. Our scores will take into account the driving experience, how pleasant the interior is, the practicality on offer and what it’ll cost you to run.
