There are few car manufacturers as recognizable or trusted in the UK as Peugeot. The French manufacturer, part of Groupe PSE, has a long history of creating very reliable, affordable and economical cars which makes them a popular choice with a wide range of motorists. Additionally, they have a diverse lineup which means that it should be relatively easy to find the right vehicle for your needs.
Here are a few of the key models to consider.
The 208 is a common sight on UK roads and one of the better selling superminis - this is impressive as it is such a competitive class. The 208 is practical, easy to drive, eco-nomical and has a bold styling. This makes it a popular car with young motorists and those living in the city but it can also be a good car for a small family (especially the 5-door option).
Families may be better suited with the 308 which is a family hatchback with a good sized interior and low running costs. It also has a range of diesel and petrol engines to choose from so it should be easy to find one that is best suited to your needs.
The 108 is a small city car which is cheap to buy and run, easy to drive and practical. This makes it a good option for new drivers, those that live in the city or people who only need a car occasionally for short journeys.
The SUV market is soaring in popularity in the UK and at the forefront of this is the superb Peugeot 3008. This mid-sized SUV has a huge and very comfortable interior, an eye-catching design and practicality. It is a great car for active families or those simply looking for a larger vehicle.
Larger families may want to consider the 5008 which is a seven-seater SUV with a similar style to the 3008.
Eco-conscious drivers will be happy to know that there is an all-electric vehicle on Peugeot’s roster. The iOn is a four-seat city car which will help to keep running costs down and is ideal for those that live in the city and/or need a vehicle for short jour-neys.
These are the main vehicles available from Peugeot, all of which are smart investments to make because they are so reliable and practical with low running costs. There is a vehicle for every type of motorist too so it should not be too hard to find one that will meet your vehicle requirements. Due to their reliability, Peugeot vehicles are also excellent used cars and can usually be found for affordable prices in the second-hand car market.
