Aimed at taking on fellow European rivals like the Citroen C4 Cactus, Mini Countryman, Renault Captur, and Fiat 500X in the small prestige-SUV category, the Peugot 2008 features a small turbo-petrol three-cylinder mated to a six-speed torque-converted automatic that sends drive to the front wheels.

A turbo-diesel engine was offered in Australia , but was dropped in 2017.

Prices for the Peugeot 2008 start at $34,990 for the 2008 Allure and hit $43,990 for the top-of-the-range 2008 GT Sport.

Peugeot 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Peugeot 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What small SUV do you recommend?

    It sounds like you have a bit of a thing for French cars right now, Carmel. In fact, you could argue that the French brands are experiencing a bit of a resurgence in Australia, particularly as each brand gets its quality act closer to the mark and the factory warranties have never been better than right now.

    All three of the cars you’ve nominated have their strong points, and it will really come down to your personal preferences when it comes to which one is right for you. And let me guess; it was the Peugeot 2008’s odd dashboard/steering wheel relationship that put you off. That’s particularly true for shorter folk who have trouble looking over the wheel at the instruments. But then, such quirkiness has always been part of the charm of French cars, no?

    In any case, it would also be wise to sample the Japanese and South Korean contenders at this end of the market, too, as there are some interesting offerings there as well. The Toyota C-HR would be one, the Honda HR-V another. Don’t forget, either, the Hyundai Kona, Nissan Juke and the Mazda CX-3. All have their strengths and weaknesses, but all are worth short-listing.

    As for the MX-5, it’s true that Mazda has stuck to the original formula for the new latest little convertible. And, yes, that dictates a small, low car that is huge fun to drive but isn’t for everybody physically.

  • Peugeot 2008 2018: Can I fit a reversing alarm to my car?

    It’s already got a rear view camera, so I don’t see that adding reversing alarm adds much to your safety, if anything at all.

  • Is it worth owning the 1.2 litre Peugeot 2008?

    The 2008 drives nicely, the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine is very economical if not particularly zippy. It rides and handles well, is roomy for its size, will accommodate four adults, has a generous boot, and boasts five-star safety. It’s also generally reliable.

Peugeot 2008 Interior

The cabin design of the Peugeot 2008 is unusual, with the brand's i-Cockpit design having copped a fair bit of criticism over the years. But it's genuinely interesting, and makes you realise there are different ways to design the ergonomics of a car, with the low-set steering wheel made for ou to look over the top of, rather than through, to the digital instrument cluster.

There are nice materials used throughout, and it's one of the most interesting interior packages of any small SUV.

Peugeot 2008 Seats

There are five seats in the Peugeot 2008. Nothing really special here, and the space is good for the size of the car - but just beware the high door sills when you're getting in and out.

Peugeot 2008 Speed

The 0-100km/h claim for the base model Allure is 9.9 seconds, while the more powerful GT Sport lops a second off that, claiming 8.9sec. Remember, it's running a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo engine and front-wheel drive, so that's not too bad. But the Pug SUV is light, weighing in less than 1300kg in both trim levels.
