Peugeot 2008 now better value than ever

Peugeot has updated its 2008 range - including the electric e-2008 - to offer more kit while keeping prices the same.

This ‘more stuff for the same amount of dosh’ approach is something Peugeot has been focusing on in recent weeks.

The 208 hatchback range was also recently tweaked to offer a better specification as standard, without a hike to the RRP.

And now the 2008 and e-2008 have been given the ‘more for your money’ treatment.

For both the 2008 and the e-2008, entry level models have now evolved to become ‘Active Premium +’. Unlike before, you now get gloss black roof rails and dark tinted rear and rear side windows.

The old mid-range ‘Allure Premium’ models have shifted to become ‘Allure Premium +’.

You can now enjoy aluminium pedals, connected 3D sat nav, voice recognition for the radio, and full phone integration. That kit was only previously available on the range-topping GT trim.

In terms of powertrains up for grabs, they remain the same as before.

The regular 2008 is powered by a 1.2 litre petrol engine with power of up to 130 PS, depending on which unit you plump for. The cheapest engine is a 1.2 litre mill with 100 PS and which will return up to 52 miles to the gallon. Not bad at all.

The electric e-2008, meanwhile, is underpinned by a 50kWh battery and 100kW electric motor for up to 214 miles of range between plug-ins.

The e-2008 also supports up to 100 kW rapid charging, which means a charge from 0-80% goes by in just half an hour.

Overall, the petrol 2008 is a rival to the likes of the Nissan Juke and the Ford Puma. It sits a rung down from the larger 3008 in the Peugeot range.

The battery powered e-2008 takes on cars like the Hyundai Kona Electric, the Vauxhall Mokka-e and the Kia Niro EV.

In terms of practicality, the e-2008 is a real winner. There’s plenty of room in the back for the family and there’s also a huge 405 litre boot.

Luggage space in the Vauxhall Mokka-e is down on the Peugeot, making do with 350 litres.
