Peugeot 2008 GT 2024 Review

I recently drove the Peugeot 2008 GT. This is a front wheel drive SUV that is ideal for a couple of people and for the urban environment.

Peugeot 2008 GT mid-level specification variant. There are two models the Allure, GT, and pricing is from around $39,000 plus the usual costs.

The first thing you notice is how stylish the 2008 is. From the distinctive grill and sleek lights through to the rounded SUV profile. Its stands out from the other small SUVs that can sometimes all look alike.

Inside its even more stylish. I love the 3-dimensional digital drivers instruments. Its completely unique. I also like the Peugeot i-cockpit dash style with the sports steering wheel sitting below it.

Its an unusual driving position, but it really works well.

The 2008 GT model comes with a lot of little luxuries and safety features as well as a bunch of drivers assist technologies.

The 2008 is powered by a 1.2Litre 3-cylinder petrol engine that gets the balance between zippy performance and economy exactly right.

Its fun to drive and extremely comfortable.

If you want something just a little bit different with French styling and flair, then the Peugeot 2008 GT is for you.
