28. PEU­GEOT 2008

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

THE 2008 is one of the more prac­ti­cal su­per­mini­based crossovers, and a great car for grow­ing fam­i­lies. Its boot is large enough to swal­low a folded baby buggy and travel cot, and the raised ride height makes lift­ing chil­dren in and out of their car seats much eas­ier.

All mod­els are eco­nom­i­cal and the in­te­rior feels classy. Just make sure you can live with the small steer­ing wheel, which isn’t to all tastes; a Grip Con­trol sys­tem should help with mild off-road­ing. Price range: £16,300-£22,130 Our pick: 1.6 Blue­hdi 100 Al­lure (£20,160) En­gine: 1.6-litre 4cyl diesel, 99bhp Trans­mis­sion: 5-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 112mph Econ­omy: 76.3mpg CO2: 97g/km
