The Urban Crossover is a relatively new category of vehicle for the family. With its high riding stance, great visibility, huge amount of space and low running costs, these unusual vehicles provide a flexibility like no other.
With Peugeot’s highly regarded history in the crossover field with the multi-award winning 3008, the 2008 has a lot to live up to. Can it impress as much as it’s bigger brother?
The Mokka has shown that looks are not everything. With a “choppy ride and poor steering “, a “clattery diesel engine” and “so-so quality; poor reliability record”, it has certainly not won over any fans (over at WhatCar?). This scathing review highlights the “feel” of its rivals; all of which are “more comfortable and refined”.
So our customers are looking for an Urban Crossover that looks the part, based on an award winning design, spritely, has great handling and has excellent refinement. Let us introduce you to the Peugeot 2008.
Firstly many have noticed similarities between the 208 and 2008. Indeed the 2008 looks like a bigger, musclier brother of the iconic car. In many ways, this is true as it shares many features with the award winning small car.
Like the 208, the Peugeot 2008 provides a cabin with comfort and technological advancement at hand. With optional extras including heated leather seats, panoramic sunroof and parking assist (with front and rear sensors), the 2008 operates as good as it looks.
The loadspace area can be folded flat for useful 1,194 litres of storage and with many cabin storage locations, you can be sure there is a space for everything.
The engine choices start from a surprisingly small 1.2 litre three-cylinder petrol for those of us focused on extreme economy, rising to an impressive 1.6 litre petrol engine. All petrol editions of the 2008 provide an average of 50mpg but if you are seeking increased fuel efficiency, then choose one of our impressive diesels; all of which offer an average of 70mpg.
Unlike its current rivals in this sector, the 2008 also provides enough space for “six-footers” allowing for a comfortable ride for your ever-growing teenagers.
Overall the 2008 beats out its rivals by far, offering better design, practicality, space, fuel efficiency and comfort for its passengers. Drive the 2008 today at Charters Peugeot of Aldershot.
