The Top Gear car review:Peugeot 2008
Running costs and reliability
If you can live with the looks, you’ll probably get along fine with the 2008. The 1.6 HDi should deliver over 50mpg in the real world (we know, because our own 208 long-termer did so). And with all those nice fabrics in the cabin, you’ll have plenty to stroke should you get bored in traffic. With a boggo car starting at around £13,500, you can imagine doing so with a justifiably smug face, particularly given how the sweet 1.2 triple feels anything but bargain basement in use. It even averages 57mpg (although if economy is your thing, look at the 76mpg diesels…).
