Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone

Oh yes, it’s another dinky SUV. But it’s hard to be angry at something wearing the face of a robotic chipmunk like this Peugeot 2008 does.It’s an aesthetically pleasing thing all round, really, looking like it was designed from the off as an individual model. As opposed to the old 2008, which had the demeanour of a 208 hatchback carrying Christmas weight. This new one looks big, mind, and indeed it’s longer and more commodious than before.

Pros
Fancy dials,
great petrol engines and a decent EV

Cons
Firm (ish) ride,
pricey if you tick too many boxes

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Eye-catching design inside and out
Broad range of engine options
Cabin is spacious, plus big boot

Cons
Top-spec models can be pricey
3D digital dials take some getting used to
Driving position still won’t suit all

By:

Stylish inside and out with plenty of substance to match, the Peugeot 2008 is a polished and practical small SUV. Its ride and handling may not particularly inspire, and the high-spec models are incredibly pricey, but the lower-end – and still decently equipped – versions are thoroughly recommendable.

Pros
Brilliant interior quality
Excellent rear seat space
Frugal engines

Cons
Bumpy low speed ride
Top models are very expensive
Average-size boot with rear seats up
