Peugeot e-2008 practicality & boot space

A good-sized boot and plenty of passenger space make the Peugeot e-2008 a good family car

Practicality is important in this class, and the e-2008 doesn’t disappoint. The 405-litre boot is a good size and shape, and will easily take a chunky buggy or leggy dog. It’s well worth going for the variable boot floor that’s standard on all but entry-level cars, as it not only creates a useful cable-storage area, it also levels out the boot floor with the load lip and 60:40 split-folding rear seats.

There’s a decent amount of room for two average-sized adults to get comfortable in the back seats, and the raised ride height and lofty roofline make it easy to bend in and wrestle with a child’s car seat. Mind you, there’s no central armrest in the back seats, the middle-seat occupant must perch on a hard squab and is squeezed for elbow room, and it’s easy to trip into the car over a high sill.

Peugeot e-2008 interior space, storage & comfort

The e-2008 has a roomy-feeling cabin that enhances its semi-SUV standing, even if a Nissan Leaf is actually just as spacious. The electronic parking brake leaves an uncluttered area ahead of the front armrest, which lifts to reveal a central cubbyhole.

A recessed storage area at the base of the dashboard is great for holding your phone (and houses the wireless charging pad in GT Line and GT-spec cars). We haven’t driven a right-hand-drive e-2008 yet, so can’t comment on glovebox storage.

Boot space

At 405 litres, the e-2008’s boot capacity is a little short of that in the Kia e-Niro, but for context is still usefully more than you get in a Ford Focus. It’s a good shape, too, and you can extend the luggage space by folding the 60:40 split rear seats. Be sure to add the variable boot floor if it’s not standard, as it creates a useful cable storage area that’s lacking otherwise, as well as raising the floor to be flush with the folded seats and boot lip.
