Peugeot 2008 2017
ADDED: January 14, 2022
Mod Autos Ltd has a very clean tidy example of PEUGEOT 2008 1.6 BLUE HDI ALLURE 5d 100 BHP, ready to drive away same day. With an upmarket cabin and neat SUV-like styling, the Peugeot 2008 is a small crossover that competes with the likes of the Nissan Juke. As a family car it's usefully practical, despite its small size, with a decent boot and good interior room, especially in the back. Thanks to a raised driving position it's also easy to drive in town while all the engines are economical, making the 2008 cheap to run. The cabin is neat and classy, with well-finished materials giving a quality feel. The unusually small steering wheel - a Peugeot trademark - can take some getting used to because it feels almost toy like, plus it means you look over rather than through it, to see the instruments. Interior space is reasonable, with enough rear leg and headroom to seat adults, which is more than can be said for rivals like the Nissan Juke. The huge advantage for anyone living in a country area was and is the availability of 'Grip Control', a trick electronic differential that, along with Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons tyres, enables a 2008 to ascent a snow and ice covered 1:3 bank with astonishing ease. For that job it's better than most 4x4 systems with standard summer tyres. The 2008 is a good looking both inside and out, plus it offers more or less all the practicality you could need from a smaller family car. Add in low running costs and some impressive engines, especially the 1.6 BLUE HDI unit (76.3 mpg), and it makes for an appealing choice.
