The Peugeot 2008 enters the highly competitive Compact SUV segment at the top of its class, bringing all the positive attributes of the 208.
It’s spacious and practical, yet retains a compact footprint, making it ideal for city use.
Powertrain options include lively turbocharged petrol units and a frugal diesel.
There is also a fully electric version with a 206-mile range.
Running costs are impressively low, with both driver and business benefitting from the car’s efficient engines and strong residuals.
The 2008’s premium interior is packed with technology, including digital instruments and a touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity.
The latest driver aids are also available.
High levels of refinement ensure the car is competent on the motorway, yet it still feels agile and fun to drive on country lanes.
Generous interior space and a boot that out-sizes its direct rivals helped to secure the 2008’s victory at this year’s Fleet News Awards.
