Peugeot 2008 size and dimensions guide

The Peugeot 2008 is a stylish small crossover offering impressive levels of kit and interior space. The facelifted model is more sophisticated than ever with improved looks and new tech but, with plenty of rivals to choose from, it needs to work well for the families that buy it.

We’ve pulled together comprehensive dimensions data for the 2008 to save you breaking out the tape measure in the dealership. If you’ve decided it fits your needs perfectly, our Peugeot 2008 car configurator can help you get a great deal on your new car.

Peugeot 2008 exterior dimensions

As a compact crossover, the 2008 has plenty of rivals to deal with – Peugeot has decided to keep its dimensions in-line with other compact SUVs such as the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur. It’s actually not quite as tall as those rivals, but the roof rails and stepped roofline give the car a distinctively chunky look not too dissimilar to the Land Rover Discovery in certain lights. A reversing camera is standard on GT Line cars and optional on the Allure trim level.

Peugeot 2008 interior dimensions

Peugeot targets the 2008 at family buyers, so it needs to have a sizable interior despite its small external dimensions. Again, the 2008 sits slap bang in the middle of its rivals in terms of internal space – those in the Renault Captur might have a bit more space to play with thanks to sliding rear seats but, compared to the Juke, the 2008 has more to offer.

Legroom (front/rear) 874mm/698mm

Peugeot 2008 boot space

Peugeot has been able to increase boot space in this facelifted model, so the volume with the seats up has increased from 360 to 422 litres and is now on a par with the likes of the much larger Nissan Qashqai. There’s an even larger increase when the rear seats are folded so, if you regularly carry large or heavy objects, the Peugeot is going to be your best bet.

Boot space (seats up) 422 litres
Boot space (seats folded) 1,430 litres

Peugeot 2008 fuel tank size and turning circle

A fuel tank of 50 litres is on a par with rivals and, in the most fuel efficient 2008, could mean a potential range of 835 miles. The turning circle of 10 metres is also impressive, and betters most rivals by around 0.5 metres, even the Ford Fiesta supermini has a wider turning circle.

Peugeot 2008 weight and towing limits

The 2008 is not a heavy car and even the portliest versions weigh just 1,200kg – this compares well against most rivals. It’s worth remembering that some of them are available with optional all-wheel drive, not something Peugeot offers on the 2008. It might not seem like the most obvious tow car, but opt for the 1.6-litre diesel version and you’ll find it can handle light hauling duties.

Weight 1,045-1,200kg
