2022 Honda HR-V vs Peugeot 2008: Engine & Performance

When engines are concerned, the HR-V V gets a 1.5-liter inline-4 turbocharged gasoline engine that’s good for 174 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque. Power is then sent to its front wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters

Meanwhile, the Peugeot 2008 uses a 1.2-liter turbocharged inline-3 gasoline engine capable of making up to 130 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. It is also a front-wheel-drive model, but it uses a six-speed automatic transmission instead. 

When power is concerned, the Honda is considerably more powerful than the Peugeot. This of course is expected since the HR-V V’s engine has one more cylinder and has a larger displacement than the Peugeot

When it comes to power though, the HR-V V clearly makes a whole lot more than the 2008. It even has paddle shifters, which the French-branded vehicle lacks. So if this is a concern for you as a buyer, you might want to lean more towards the Honda
