SUVs have well and truly found their feet in the car market, now accounting for nearly one in every seven cars sold each year. Gone are the days when we thought that bigger meant better. Today, the emphasis is on practicality, handling and economy – things that the new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross demonstrates well.
Of course the popularity of the SUV has made it a highly competitive market with almost every car brand expanding their range to include at least one (and often more) SUV models. So, what makes the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross stand out from the crowd?
Quite simply, the new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross has all of the features that you’d expect from any SUV, dual purpose vehicle or crossover… and more!
With big brother, the 3008 winning European Car of the Year in 2017, the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross is certainly worth consideration when looking for a flexible family car.
As a small SUV, the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross provides all of the benefits of an SUV – higher driving position, increased safety, good head height and legroom, and flexible seating – without needing a field in which to park it!
If you’re a fan of the Peugeot 208, you’ll love the new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross. Based on the same platform, the SUV boasts many similar features, with an added bit of finesse. The solid interior is of fantastic quality, with soft touch plastics, Berlin Black trim and chrome touches providing a cabin that feels superior to many rival compact SUVs. A refrigerated glovebox and air conditioning are also included so that you can maintain your cool, whatever the conditions.
Dashboard controls are conveniently placed, especially since a rake and reach adjustable steering wheel, and driver seat adjustment are standard throughout the whole Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross range. Simply set the most comfortable position for you, and off you go!
The new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross also benefits from much of the new technology that helps today’s drivers, such as park assist and a reversing camera (GT Line only) for those tight spaces; active city braking for stop-start queuing during peak time driving; cruise control with speed limiter for motorway journeys; and grip control (available on the Allure and GT line) which provides excellent traction without the additional weight of four-wheel drive.
Light and exceedingly reactive steering, and deep windscreens that provide a great all round view make the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross a pleasure to drive, wherever you’re headed.
You’ll also find that a journey in the new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross will be made more pleasurable with the touchscreen infotainment system in all but the Access models with Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity included. Sat Nav is incorporated in the GT Line spec and can be added as an optional extra in all other trims.
The unlipped boot opening makes it easy to slide heavy objects into the back of the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross, unhindered. Rear seats can be folded 60/40 or completely flat to extend the creditable 360-litre boot to a huge 1,194 litres. Spring-loaded folding allows this to be done in seconds with the touch of a button, providing an instantly flexible space whether the load is your latest DIY project or your daytripping family.
Whatever your choice of trim – Access, Active, Allure or GT Line – you’ll find useful roof bars on your new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross that’ll come in handy if you ever run out of space on the inside, as well as body-coloured handles, a rear sports spoiler, and heated wing mirrors with power-operated folding.
Safety-wise, the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross received the maximum five stars in Euro NCAP crash tests, no doubt helped by the SUV’s Grip Control system, Electronic Stability Programme, and front and side airbags.
With the 1.2-litre petrol engine claiming up to 57.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km, and the diesel 1.6-litre alternative managing up to 76.3mpg while emitting just 97g/km of CO2, the new Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross offers outstanding economy.
