The latest Peugeot 2008 SUV has recently been updated, with refreshed styling and featuring an enhanced specification. It has an even more assertive and appealing SUV design, including visual features to give it an enhanced presence; new wheel arch extensions (from Allure level), while a new vertical front grille and front and rear scuff plates (also from Allure level) confirm its robustness and are designed for everyday use. The new ‘Ultimate Red’ colour further epitomises the power and desirability of the new 2008 SUV. The Access A/C, Active and Allure levels are complemented by the new 2008 SUV GT Line model. This desirable trim level is already a very popular choice on other key Peugeot models (108, 208, 308 and 508), and adds a sporty theme throughout.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is unique to the Brand and embodies the driving characteristics of the Peugeot 2008 SUV, being agile, intuitive and safe. The compact sports steering wheel offers precise steering and improved manoeuvrability, while the 7” multifunction colour touch screen puts all the functionality at your fingertips. In addition, the head-up instrument panel allows driver information to be accessed without taking the eyes off the road.
Grip Control® – an adapted traction system – gives the new 2008 SUV its versatility on all types of terrain. It is combined with Mud & Snow (All-Season) tyres. Equipment available on new Peugeot 2008 SUV includes (subject to trim level) Mirror Screen®, and Carplay™, along with the reversing camera, Active City Brake and Park Assist – a rarity in this segment. The Euro6 engines ensure high-level driving pleasure while remaining fuel efficient. Four versions are ‘Best-in-Class’ in their segment, including the 1.2L PureTech 130 S&S 6-speed manual.
