Why The PEUGEOT 2008 Is The Best Car For Young Families

The perfect family car is hard to find. After an abundance of research, gathering feedback, analysing reviews, test driving and comparing cars, we understand how tiresome finding your brand new car can be.

At Mantello PEUGEOT Roxburgh Park, we want to remove the stress of finding the perfect car by giving you our expert list on the most critical factors that must be considered and practised when buying your car.

With an impressive array of family cars on the market ticking most boxes, believe us when we tell you there is none quite like the PEUGEOT 2008 to suit you and your family’s needs. Not only is it a cut above the rest in design, but it also has everything you didn't know you needed. The proof is in the pudding as it ticks all the boxes on the list, and we're going to tell you how:


You may be considering a car that has all the bells and whistles, looks good and drives incredibly. Convertible, maybe? However, when we're talking about family cars, it's all not worth it if it's not practical. 

Instead, consider the following questions: 

Can this vehicle easily fit a pram? 

Is it suitable for booster seats? 

How will the car adjust to a growing family? 

There is nothing worse than a child's leg hitting the back of your front seat for prolonged periods. Hence, ensuring that your vehicle will last the test of time (or perhaps five to ten years) is paramount to finding the perfect vehicle for you. 

Lucky for you, the PEUGEOT 2008 screams practicality whilst also encapsulating state of the art features, outstanding driving functionalities as well as aesthetic design. 


With a 9/10 rating on, we know yourself and your growing family can have peace of mind knowing the PEUGEOT 2008 will keep you safe. 

Some standard safety features include, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, six airbags, driver fatigue warning, forward collision warning, tyre-pressure monitoring system and plenty more. 

Further, the GT Sports model additionally has low-light cyclist and pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control with stop/go function if you’d prefer. 


A family car must be practical, and nothing says practicality like a small SUV. Being a larger car that's higher off the road means you can say goodbye to awkwardly bending over to unbuckle the kids plus, you have the benefits of improved visibility over oncoming traffic. 

The 2008 model features five seats for comfort and convenience. The back seat is an oasis for the younger ones and it also fits a child seat forwards and rear-facing.

SUV's also typically carry more, which is true in the 2008 case. With 434 litres of boot space, 1,647 litre when folded and even more when you include the extra space below the removable boot floor, you'll be swimming in space for storage. 


Although it might come across as expensive for a small SUV, it's very well-equipped even at entry-level, and you genuinely get bang for your buck. Tinted rear windows, climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and daytime running lights, 3D i-cockpit digital dashboard,7 inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, push-button start and an auto-dimming rearview mirror to name a few. 

Children are also distractions (shocking, we know). So whilst it is not a priority, the PEUGEOT 2008 sure will make your life easier with reversing cameras, sensors, radar cruise control and lane assist; there are even two USB ports in the back seat as a bonus feature.


You are sure to have the ultimate driving experience with the PEUGEOT 2008's all-new innovative and efficient EAT6* (Efficient Automatic Transmission 6) or EAT8* (Efficient Automatic Transmission 8-speed) automatic gearboxes. They feature 'Quick Shift' technology for quicker and smoother gear changes and optimal driveability.

With the standard offering being the PureTech turbo petrol engine being the international engine of the year four years running in the 1.0l to 1.4l category, as well as offering power and fuel economy 


As the PEUGEOT ticks all the boxes, come into Mantello PEUGEOT Roxburgh Park and take a look for yourself.
