Reviews

The Peugeot towing a Freedom Sunseeker Prima (750) kg reviewed by Kenny Robinson :

Car very stable with Freedom. Had no problem at 60mph on Motorway or hills In Cornwall. Drove about 1600 miles from Glasgow to Cornwall and back. You need to ensure the caravan is loaded front and middle heavy to minimise bounce. With an Alco hitch very stable even in strong winds. 41MPG

The Peugeot towing a Sterling Europa 390 (1193) kg reviewed by tom daly:

my peugeot is the 100 bhp blue hdi engined model and pulls the sterling no problems mine is the 5 speed gearbox although if you are thinking of buying one of these go for the six speed manual i think it would be so much better... fuel consumption is around 62 when not towing down to 50 when towing the van who says you cant tow a decent size caravan with a small suv by the way the peugeot 2008 makes short work of muddy fields with the grip control feature coupled with the mud and snow tyres fitted as standard who needs a big gutsy 4x4
