Used Peugeot 2008 for sale
When Peugeot released the second generation 2008 in 2019, it didn't just want to blend in, which is arguably what the first generation did. Instead, Peugeot wanted to stand out from the crowd with the second generation 2008, and wow, did they meet their goal.

Discover in more detail why the Peugeot 2008 makes for a great used compact SUV below.
Engines and Driving Experience
In the second generation 2008 there is a 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engine, with either 97bhp, 127bhp or 152bhp, along with a 1.5-litre BlueHDi engine, with either 99bhp or 108bhp.
The 127bhp petrol is a peach within the range, especially when mated to the automatic eight-speed transmission, as changes are seamless. The long top gear also means a low 2000rpm at motorway speeds, resulting in a quiet, refined and economical drive.
In towns and cities, the Peugeot i-Cockpit and small steering wheel mean the 2008 feels nimble and a doddle to maneuver.
As for economy, the petrol engines can return between 42 and 52mpg, whilst the diesels return between 54 and 65mpg. Performance isn't too bad either, with all models being fairly brisk for a small SUV.
Practicality and Running Costs
This second generation 2008 is roomier than its predecessor, featuring more rear legroom than before. There is also a bigger boot too, with 434 litres, increasing to 1,467 litres with the rear seats folded.
With five seats, and five-doors, you are not going to struggle getting comfy either. As for running costs, the efficient engine choices mean you'll be visiting petrol stations less frequently, and servicing is reasonably priced due to the small volume engine choice.

Interior, Technology and Safety
Peugeot have really impressed in recent years with interior detail, and this 2008 is no different, with a certain wow factor when entering the cabin.
The digital Peugeot i-Cockpit ensures a futuristic and inviting cluster display, instead of regular analogue dials, and a central, clear and colourful infotainment screen complements the tech perfectly.
Material choice is also of fine quality, meaning the 2008 is superb place to spend time, whether it be behind the wheel or as a passenger.
The 2008 comes with lots of safety kit too, such as auto headlights, blind spot monitoring, emergency braking, plus adaptive cruise control and lane assist - although it is worth noting this is only available on higher spec models, where the Euro NCAP rating is five stars, lower spec models have a four-star rating.
Is the Peugeot 2008 right for me?
If you are after a compact SUV that is striking to look at from the outside as well as being stunning on the inside, then the Peugeot 2008 could be the used compact SUV for you.
It really does a good job of making the driver and passengers feel like they are in something a lot more premium and exclusive, and the i-Cockpit certainly gives the crossover SUV some properly futuristic flair.
It is hard to recommend rivals, as the Peugeot does so well at ticking all the right boxes.
