Used Peugeot 2008 (Mk1, 2013-2019) – How much will it cost?

Running costs for the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 are generally low. Fuel economy is pretty good, too

Even when the car was new, the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 wasn’t expensive to keep on the road, thanks to its low fuel consumption and the fact it sits in fairly low insurance groups. Because of the effects of depreciation, the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 is also noticeably more affordable as a used buy than it was as either a new or nearly new car.

Prices

The Peugeot 2008 Mk1 is a tempting choice if value for money is the number one priority for you. Equipment levels across the board were fairly good by class standards, but do bear in mind entry-level Access models don’t come with many bells and whistles, and there’s better smartphone connectivity on post-facelift cars thanks to their Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

Depending on the age of the car you’re looking at, the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 could also be quite affordable to buy. Residual values for the car weren’t the strongest by supermini-based SUV standards, which once you factor in the 2008 Mk1 sold in good numbers has helped keep prices down.

Fuel economy and CO2 emissions

The Peugeot 2008 Mk1’s engines were capable of returning good fuel economy across the board, with the most efficient on paper unsurprisingly being the diesel options. For instance, the 100bhp 1.5-litre diesel that was available towards the end of the car’s production run could return up to 67mpg, and the more powerful 128bhp version of the same engine was capable of up to 58.2mpg (emissions for both models hovered between 86 to 94g/km of CO2).

Peugeot quoted better fuel economy figures for the earlier diesel engines – for example, the 1.6-litre diesel could return between 70.6mpg and 78.5mpg, depending on the power output and the gearbox it was fitted with. However, it’s important to note the fuel economy of these earlier engines was calculated using a different method from the one used for the 1.5-litre diesel.

The Peugeot 2008 Mk1’s petrol engines aren’t as frugal as the diesels, but are still pretty efficient. On paper, the mid-range 108bhp 1.2-litre engine is the most economical thanks to its claimed 51.5mpg, which is a bit better than what the 81bhp (up to 46.8mpg) and 128bhp (up to 49.9mpg) versions of the same engine can muster. Peugeot also quoted up to 47.9mpg for the 1.6-litre petrol engine that was available on early cars, although, as with the previously mentioned 1.6-litre diesels, this figure was calculated using a different method.

Running costs

Servicing intervals for the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 can vary, depending on the engine it has. Petrol-powered versions need to have a service once every 12 months or 20,000 miles, whichever is the sooner. Diesel models have the same time limit requirement, with a smaller maximum mileage of 12,500 miles.

The Peugeot 2008 Mk1’s service schedule alternates between minor and major check-ups – the former will set you back £199 while the latter costs £299. Additional regular work that needs to be carried out on the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 includes a brake fluid change once every two years, which will set you back £65, and diesel models have a cambelt that needs changing once ever 10 years/112,500 miles at £295 a pop.

Being a bigger car that came with more features as standard, the Peugeot 2008 Mk1 sits in higher insurance group brackets than the Peugeot 208 Mk1 supermini that it’s closely related to. However, insurance premiums should still be affordable because the 2008 Mk1’s insurance group ratings are still quite low. They start from insurance group 8 for the least powerful petrol models in Active spec, and top out at insurance group 24 for the punchiest petrol car in the range-topping GT-Line trim level.
