Expert Rating

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.

As of December 2021, the Peugeot 2008 currently holds an overall Expert Rating of 70%, which puts it in the top half of one of the most competitive sectors of the new car market. The UK launch of the 2008 came only a month or so before the UK went into lockdown, so we expect to see more reviews published in coming months. We will keep updating our results, so keep checking back for the latest reviews and Expert Rating.

The media reviews for the 2008 so far have been very 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.

SAFETY ASSIST

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


No eco rating

The Peugeot 2008 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP.

If and when the Peugeot 2008 is tested, we’ll publish the results here.
