Why Lease A Peugeot 2008?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Peugeot 2008 has plenty of space up front and even offers an impressive amount of boot capacity. Being the smallest SUV in the range means that a compromise has to be made somewhere. In this case, rear passengers can feel a bit uncomfortable, particularly if they’re tall. Similarly, the centre-rear seat is best suited for shorter passengers or children.
At 405 litres, the boot size is competitive with rivals. Folded down, the space expands to an even more impressive 1471 litres. And storing the cups, phones, handbags and toys that accompany most family trips is no problem, thanks to 4 generously proportioned door bins and plenty of cupholders.
Peugeot’s entire 2008 range is geared towards offering the best possible running costs. The base diesel offers around 66mpg in mixed driving, while the petrol engines are closer to 48mpg. Both are impressive figures – however, it’s the electric E-2008 which promises the most economical returns. The monthly leasing costs may be a tad higher as a result, but a full charge at home will cost approximately £8 and will give you up to 206 miles of range. That’s around half of what it costs compared to the diesel 2008. The 1% benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax band offers another big saving over the petrol and diesel variants.
Peugeot 2008The 2008 is available solely in a subcompact 5-door SUV body style.
The Peugeot 2008 Vs Competitors
The Peugeot 2008 is perfect if you prefer your subcompact SUV to be stylish and fun to drive. Some alternatives offer more interior space and cargo room, but the 2008 is still practical enough for most families.
The Peugeot 2008 is classed as a subcompact SUV. This type of vehicle is sometimes referred to as a crossover. In this case, the 2008 is essentially a 208 hatchback with a raised ride height and more practical bodyshell. It offers much of what makes larger SUVs so popular – commanding driving position, spacious boot – in a smaller and wieldier size.
This depends on what you want from your subcompact SUV. Both offer stylish exteriors, but the 2008 edges it when it comes to interior design and build quality. The 2008 can be had as a petrol, diesel or fully-electric model, whereas the Renault Captur only offers petrol power plants and a plug-in hybrid. The Renault does offer more rear passenger space and a significantly larger boot, offering between 422 and 536 litres (depending on what position the rear seats are in).
The GT Premium trim is the best-equipped 2008 and can be fitted with the most powerful 155hp petrol engine or the 136hp all-electric motor. It comes fitted with heated front seats, a smartphone charging plate, adaptive cruise control and Alcantara seats.
The 2008 may not be available with all-wheel drive, but it’s nonetheless perfectly capable when it comes to tackling the sort of snow levels seen in the UK. The car has a decent ride height and a traction control system called Advanced Grip Control, which apportions power to whichever front wheel has the most grip.
