Peugeot is one of France's oldest car brands. It long ago swallowed up Citroën to form the PSA Group, one of the world's largest automotive companies. It now includes Vauxhall as well.
Peugeot's reputation has traditionally been for making well-built cars with excellent ride comfort and handling, with popular models including the Peugeot 208. It did go through a period of its cars lacking the sharpness of old in the chassis department. However, Peugeot found a new lease of life with its 3008 crossover SUV.
Its newfound sense of style continued with a remake of the Peugeot 5008, managing to move its MPV into more fashionable SUV territory. Its striking 508 Fastback, with its sleek coupé good looks, shows just how far Peugeot's come in terms of design.
Peugeot cars are reliable – or so the company's reputation would have you believe. But does the reality live up to the expectation?
Every year, we run an annual car survey where tens of thousands of people tell us about their current car and how reliable it is. Based on feedback from current Peugeot owners, we have reliability data for new cars aged up to three years old, and also cars aged between three and eight years old.

Ratings and review
We surveyed online 47,013 members of the general public covering 55,833 cars. Survey in field December 2019 to February 2020.
Peugeot cars are typically priced as affordable choices for mainstream family cars.
Small cars are a mainstay of Peugeot, with the smallest being the 108. The 208 is a medium-sized hatch and is the second most-owned car from Peugeot in the Which? Cars Survey.
Peugeot has enjoyed recent success in the crossover segment with the smaller 2008, popular 3008 and larger 5008. All these cars used to be people carriers and changed as 4x4 crossovers rose in popularity.
The previous 3008 people carrier is the most-owned car from Peugeot in our cars survey, and we have high hopes for the more mainstream crossover version as well. The new 3008 is helping to redefine Peugeot’s image with more aggressive styling, as well as sporting advanced tech, including a cutting-edge digital display.
