Summary


The Peugeot 2008 is a small SUV/crossover, based on the new Peugeot 208 supermini hatchback. The current model was launched in late 2019 and arrived in UK showrooms in February 2020.

The new 2008 is also available with an electric motor in a model called the e-2008, which is rated separately to the regular 2008 models.

Media reviews for the 2008 so far have been generally positive, with praise for its design and overall quality. However, some titles have criticised its price as too expensive compared to rivals, while low-spec models miss out on some safety kit and therefore only get a four-star safety rating.

As of February 2024, the Peugeot 2008 has a New Car Expert Rating of A, with a score of 71%. It rates highly for its low running costs and CO2 emissions, while reliability is also decent. Media review scores have ben fairly average, but the 2008 should be an excellent car to live with.

Safety rating


Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

Overall score: 4 stars
Date tested: December 2019
Read the full Euro NCAP review

Adult protection: 91%
Child protection: 84%
Vulnerable road users: 62%
Safety assist: 68%

Note on safety rating
The entry-level ‘Active’ and ‘Active Premium’ Peugeot 2008 models miss out on some of the more advanced collision-avoidance technology that is included on more expensive models, which means they only get a four-star rating from Euro NCAP. This particularly affects the Vulnerable Road Users and Safety Assist ratings above, rather than the Adult Occupant and Child Occupant scores.

The ‘Allure’ and ‘GT-Line’ models get a five-star rating, although some advanced safety equipment is still optional. Only the top-spec ‘GT’ model gets the car’s full complement of safety equipment as standard.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

As of February 2024, the Peugeot 2008 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. If and when the Peugeot 2008 is tested, we’ll publish the results here.

As of February 2024, the Peugeot 2008 is slightly above average when it comes to reliability with a score of 75%, according to extended warranty data provided by our commercial partner, MotorEasy. This covers both the current (2019 onwards) model as well as earlier generations.

The most common problems reported for the Peugeot 2008 refer to the car’s suspension. While the average repair costs for electrics are reasonable, it’s worth noting that the average repair bill for engine problems is amuch more expensive £1,200.

Make sure that any used car warranty you are purchasing covers all of these potential problem areas.

The Peugeot 2008 should be a relatively affordable car to own and run, according to whole-life cost data provided exclusively to The Car Expert by our technical partner, Clear Vehicle Data.

We don’t have independently verified fuel consumption data for the petrol and diesel models, but the CO2 levels (which are linked closely to fuel consumption) are excellent, so fuel economy should be very good as well.

Insurance ratings are in some of the lowest groups, so your annual car insurance premium should be low, while servicing and maintenance costs over the first five years are outstanding for this category of car.
