MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Peugeot 2008 is a very economical car, despite its rugged off-roader looks and generous ground clearance. The 1.2-litre PureTech 130 petrol engine returns 49.9mpg and emits up to 119g/km of CO2. The 1.2-litre PureTech 110 with an ETG automatic gearbox is less efficient, returning 44.8mpg and emitting 133g/km of CO2.

For some buyers, the mid-range 1.5-litre BlueHDi 100 diesel will make more sense. It'll do 67mpg on the WLTP cycle and emits just 94g/km of CO2. We have previously recommended the 118bhp version of the same engine, although it's now only available with an automatic gearbox. It returns 58.2mpg, but is easily the quickest diesel. In fact, it’s only fractionally slower than the most powerful petrol.

All versions of the 2008 cost £145 a year to tax.

It's worth noting that, as with an increasing number of modern diesels, the 2008’s BlueHDi engines will need topping up with AdBlue, a fluid that helps to remove harmful pollutants from the model’s exhaust gases. While this should be taken care of during your annual service, high-mileage drivers may need to replenish their car’s AdBlue between services.

Insurance group

The 80bhp petrol version of the 2008 is rated group nine, the 108bhp version group 17 and the most powerful 129bhp model, group 19. The diesels are more expensive to insure and range from group 15 for the 74bhp version, through 18 for the 98bhp model to a high of 22 for the 118bhp version in GT Line trim.

Warranty

Peugeot offers the 2008 with a three-year/unlimited-mileage warranty. That’s on par with the warranty you get on the Nissan Juke and trumps the industry-standard three-year/60,000-mile package you get with a Ford EcoSport, Citroen C4 Cactus or Vauxhall Mokka. The Renault Captur has a four-year 100,000-mile warranty that’s more attractive, though.

Servicing

Service intervals for the 2008 vary depending on the engine and whether the car was registered in 2013 or 2014 or later. For diesel-engined models or the 1.2-litre petrol registered from 2014 onwards it’s one year or 16,000 miles. For the same models registered in 2013, the service interval is every year or 12,500 miles.

Peugeot's service plans allow you to spread the cost of servicing over anything from three to five years with monthly payments. A three-year/35,000-mile plan costs £12.99 a month, while a four-year/45,000-mile or five-year/55,000-mile plan will set you back £13.99 a month.
