Peugeot's 2008 small SUV sold well for the brand following an initial launch in 2012, but by the middle of the 21st century's second decade, the competition had become a lot stronger. Hence the need for the heavily revised version of this first generation design that appeared in 2015. Like the original version of this Crossover, this improved 2008 offered all the advantages of a compact runabout, together with the kind of added space, style and light off road driveability potential buyers probably never expected to be able to enjoy on a small car budget. The smarter looks of this revised version aimed to draw attention to a very efficient range of engines, plus there was extra media connectivity and stronger standards of safety. Does it all make sense as a used car buy? Let's find out.
Some manufacturers seem to believe a small SUV should be extreme, both in its styling and in the price premium it demands over the supermini it'll be based upon. Peugeot, in contrast, think differently about a car of this kind. This 2008 may not make as overt a style statement as some of its rivals but you sense that's intentional. It's for those shopping in this segment in search of something more subtly fashionable. These customers tend also to be people who appreciate this Peugeot's other key attributes - namely asking prices and running cost efficiency figures that are difficult to beat.
If that's what you want in this segment but you don't feel the need to make any sort of 'supermarket carpark statement', then you probably need to try this car.
