Review Summary:

It's a French alternative to the Japanese Nissan Juke.

Pros

Comfortable and practical cabin.

Cons

Questionable exterior styling.

Looks

If you’ve been able to decipher the brand’s rather uninteresting naming convention, you’ve probably also gathered that the French crossover this article is about, shares certain bits and pieces with its 208 sibling – the design being just one aspect.

Feels

Inside, the horizontal layout of the dashboard relays the impression of a roomier cabin, one that is embellished with leather, piano black trim, and a protruding infotainment display. But it’s not a case of only style and no substance, as there’s enough room in the front and rear seats to ensure comfort and practicality.

Engineering

Comfort is key in the and it’s evident with the innovative driving position that is structured around a small steering wheel, an eye-level instrument cluster and a central touch screen display that allows the access of information without much distraction from the road ahead.

What’s on offer?

Powered by a 1.6 litre naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine, the 2015 Peugeot 2008 is good for 120 horsepower and 160 Nm of torque. Mated to a 4 speed transmission and directing power to the front wheels, it accelerates to the 100 km/h mark in 11.5 seconds and bears a top speed of 190 km/h.

Summing it…

At the end of it all, the French crossover is a decent offering from the brand, one that goes up against the likes of the Nissan Juke. Whether it’s French or Japanese flair you’re after, that’s a personal choice, but it’s fair to say the Frenchie isn’t trailing behind its Japanese rival.
