Peugeot Road Tests

The 1007 is a brave and risky gamble for Peugeot. It’s an original, intended to set a trend rather than follow one. The first small car in Europe designed around a pair of electric sliding doors.

The new Peugeot 2008 is on sale now with prices starting from £20,150. How does it compare to the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Skoda Kamiq?
Fri, 20 Dec 2019
Peugeot's answer to the Nissan Juke market is safe, stylish and well-priced. Its ace up the sleeve is Grip Control that with all weather tyres give is better than 4x4 capability in snow.

With a light restyle and the latest cheap-to-run petrol and diesel engines, there's more reason than ever to consider the 2008.

I’d showed up to drive the new 407 SW, but the enthusiastic PRs told me to try a 206 1.6 HDI 110 first. So I did.
Sun, 29 Aug 2004
The Peugeot 207 has a big job to do. It has to follow Peugeot’s best selling cars ever: the 206 and the 205. It has to be loved. Being bigger than a 206 (actually the same size as the old 306), it has to sell for more money.

I was a natural for the Peugeot 207GT THP 150. Years ago I actually owned a 205 GTi 1.6, for 15 months and 15,000 miles.

This test of the Peugeot 207CC very nearly never happened. Flying into Jerez for a visual landing in low cloud the pilot of our A321 Airbus forgot to get his gear down and had to abort in the last few seconds.
Wed, 21 Feb 2007
Peugeot has done it again. I loved the 205GTI and the 306GTI. I reckon they got close with the 206 GT HDI 110. And I could see the potential in the 207 from the way the lesser models handled.
Thu, 16 Nov 2006
The first time I drove “my” 207 GT THP 150 I just drove it. (‘THP’ stands for ‘Turbo High Pressure’, incidentally.)
Fri, 06 Apr 2007
The Peugeot 208 hatchback is now a fashionable alternative to the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Renault Clio. It's loaded with kit and cheap to run, making it a really desirable yet sensible buy.
Thu, 10 Oct 2019
The updated 208 is available with the most economical diesel engine on sale - so how does it fare on the road?
Mon, 18 May 2015
Road test of the new Peugeot 208 with 1.2 litre 3-cylinder engines, 1.6 VTi and 1.6 eHDI 1.6. All 208 diesels under 100g/km CO2.
Wed, 14 Mar 2012
The Peugeot 208GTI is, pitched straight against the Ford Fiesta ST and the RenaultSport Clio. How does it compare?
Tue, 26 Mar 2013
This is a specific test of the 2018 Peugeot 3008 1.5HDI EAT8 automatic, a new variant of the 3008 not covered in our 2017 Peugeot 3008 range test. It’s actually a temporary substitute for my forthcoming 2019 3008 1.2 Puretech 130 EAT8 long-termer that will be delivered soon, but is so exceptionally good at what it does it is worth a separate test.
Wed, 02 Jan 2019
The Peugeot 3008 is my surprise car of the year. Because who would have expected a slightly lardy ‘lifestyle’ vehicle to drive and handle as well as this one does?
Sun, 27 Sep 2009
Bursting with high tech features, Peugeot's 2017 3008 is a different kind of 'Sports Utility Vehicle', but no less an SUV than others claiming that description.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016
Useful combination of MPV, 4WD SUV and performance car (200bhp). Base model road tax and congestion charge exempt and 74.3mpg in EU tests.
Tue, 06 Sep 2011
Two road tests in one this time, and a mystery solved for anyone wondering why Peugeot builds a 407SW as well as a 307SW.
Sun, 28 Nov 2004
There was only one other car like it. In 2003, the Renault Megane CC was the only alternative genuine four seater with a hard top that folds away into the boot.
Wed, 17 Sep 2003
It was a bit embarrassing being asked to long-term test a facelift Peugeot 307SW when I was already long-terming a Ford C-Max. But it has made for quite a useful comparison.
Fri, 10 Feb 2006
With EU6b and EU6c looming Peugeot decided to get ahead of the game with significant real world improvements to the entire 308 range and, happily, they make it a better car.
Fri, 16 Jun 2017
The 308 GTi is based on the best Peugeot for many years. So has the French brand finally rediscovered its hot hatch mojo?
Tue, 27 Oct 2015
The Peugeot 308SW car is unique. It’s the only affordable station wagon available in the UK with the option of seven seats. And they are all forward facing.
Mon, 26 May 2008
Testing the Peugeot 308 SW revealed why the 308 was voted European Car of the Year.
Wed, 23 Apr 2014
No doubt about it. No words minced. The Peugeot 308 1.6 THP 150 is fun, fun, fun. It may not look like it from outside, but it’s got more sparkle than a Dolly Parton dress.
Sun, 17 Feb 2008
Peugeot 308CC Automatic 2009 Road Test.
Sun, 12 Apr 2009
The Peugeot 4007, Citroen C-Crosser and Mitsubishi Outlander are members of the fasterst growing species in the World.
Fri, 27 Jul 2007
When the Peugeot 406 coupe was new I came out of a shop to find an Italian staring at my test car enraptured. He said it was the most beautiful car he had ever seen, and when I told him it was built in Italy his heart swelled with pride. The Peugeot 407 coupe isn’t designed by Pininfarina, nor built in Italy.

Peugeot is very keen to impress on the press that the 407 is a working car. 70% of 407s will sell to fleets. 75% will be diesels. The company knows a 407 can never meet aspirations fulfilled by a 3 Series or a C Class.
Sat, 15 May 2004
Packed with tech and boasting van-like practicality, the 5008 has been reinvented as a family-friendly SUV.
Thu, 16 Feb 2017
Given Peugeot’s credentials as one of Europe ’s biggest mainsteam car makers it might seem strange that the company is only now offering a small-ish people carrier. It’s the 5008.
Fri, 30 Oct 2009
Imposing new Peugeot 508 lifts the brand into the executive car bracket and at 109g/km the 1.6 e-HDI has the lowest CO2 of a car of its size.
Tue, 08 Feb 2011
The new 2018 Peugeot 508 is a surprising car in many ways. Great looking. Comfortable. Terrific to drive. Full of all the latest tech. But the biggest surprise is that in a car market dominated by ‘Sports Utility Vehicles’, Peugeot has bothered to make it at all.
Fri, 15 Jun 2018
Large, luxurious four wheel drive hybrid station wagon offering lower CO2 and significant BIK benefits to company drivers.
Mon, 27 Feb 2012
The 2019 Peugeot 508 SW enhances the theme established by its hatchback sibling. Great looking. Comfortable. Terrific to drive. Full of all the latest tech. And, for cynics of French cars, outstanding, almost unbelievable quality and refinement.
Fri, 30 Nov 2018
The Peugeot e-208 is just a small hatchback with a future-proof electric engine. That aside, there's very little to set it aside from a normal 208 - and that's a good thing.
Thu, 31 Oct 2019
Perky and surprisingly good fun to drive. Peugeot solves price problem by offering the iON on a £415 a month all-inclusive 4 year lease.
Wed, 08 Sep 2010
Guest Test of the stunning Peugeot RCZ THP 156 and THP 200 by George Fowler, 'Motormouth' of The Daily Star
Sun, 05 Dec 2010
Peugeot has introduced a driver-focused 270PS version of its striking RCZ which rivals the Volkswagen Scirocco R.
Thu, 14 Nov 2013
The Peugeot Rifter is the kind of car that stupid British people won’t buy. The stupid children of these stupid people wouldn’t be seen dead in one (unless it was the coroner’s). Stupid, status-obsessed wives of stupid, henpecked men threaten divorce and the idiots don’t realise they’d be better off without them. Oh no, it’s about as far from their aspirational ‘Sports Futility Vehicle’ as a van with windows can get. How wrong they all are.
