Peugeot 2008: little lion with big ambitions?

Peugeot 2008: little lion with big ambitions?


Competition among subcompact crossovers is very high. Judge for yourself: buyers want everything you wanted before, but only in the package with colourful design and a value not too much higher than the prices on the hatchbacks of similar size. As often happens in such cases, producers have to sacrifice something.

What had to be sacrificed when creating almost the most brilliant representative of the brand Peugeot – crossover 2008? And had at all? This you learn from our story, which was preceded by a long test of this car.

A discussion is that. Even if you’re not a fan of this approach to design, the Peugeot 2008 is certainly not be called boring. Even if you prefer a manual transmission, do not call six – and eight-speed “automatic” Aisin unreliable. Even if the functionality of the multimedia system is most important to you, solutions at the salon 2008 not exactly call losing.

We also talk about how this crossover, built on a budget platform, managed. Why aluminum suspension components is all well and good, but over time, maybe not. Why “beam” behind this seemingly obvious and correct solution (if we take into account the class and the cost of the crossover), but really it all depends on the settings. And as it so happened, that at a speed of 150 km/h to control the crossover 2008 – really nice.

We will also discuss the competition. Why the Peugeot 2008, Volkswagen T-Cross, the Toyota CH-R and a Suzuki Vitara should stay on the ground? Or maybe better to wait until you have the new generation Nissan Juke? The answer to the question – not that obvious because the cost of the base and the top trim 2008 differ very substantially.

And Yes, of course, the decision whether you should choose this crossover Peugeot will be for you. But many arguments (both “for” and “against”) will provide you with we.

Pleasant viewing!
