After the 208 next comes the 2008. Peugeot’s new compact crossover builds on the success of the popular supermini and will be one of the stars of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

It is the first vehicle produced by the Marque which has been designed, developed and engineered simultaneously by employees based in Europe, China and Latin America. Vehicles for Europe will be produced in the factory in Mulhouse, France.

Measuring 4.16 metres long and 1.74 metres wide, the Peugeot 2008 brings together the robustness of an SUV with the practicality of space, comfort and modularity.

The sculpted headlamps with LED daytime running lights blend seamlessly into the nose.  From the side, the car presents a dynamic yet elegant profile enhanced by the roof bars which hint at the car’s practicality and versatility. At the rear, the wide tailgate and low loading lip – just 60cm off the ground – mean exceptional ease of use.

2008 has many other attractive features; stylish matt-finished alloy wheels, black bumpers and body sills, stainless steel front and rear scuff-plates and chromed side mouldings are the perfect blend of practicality and style. 

The wheelbase of 2.54 metres means generous space for every occupant of the 2008, while the ergonomically thinner seat backs mean it’s particularly roomy for rear passengers, who also benefit from a 12v power socket for the connection of a portable device and can even access the boot when the vehicle is moving.

Folding the 60:40 split rear seats boosts storage volume from 360 to 1,194 litres, of which 22 litres are under the floor. 

The expertise and innovation of the PSA Group – as seen with Stop&Start petrol engines, e-HDi diesels, and advanced three-cylinder technology – means the 2008 sets new standards for combining driving pleasure with environmental awareness. The 2008 is available with a range of fuel efficient engines, with fuel economy as high as 61.8mpg and CO2 as low as 98g/km. 
Peugeot 2008 petrol range:
1.2-litre e-VTi 82bhp Stop&Start 99g/km
1.2-litre VTi 82bhp 114g/km
1.2-litre e-THP 110bhp Stop&Start 104g/km
1.6-litre VTi 120bhp 135g/km
1.2-litre e-THP 130bhp Stop&Start 109g/km

Peugeot 2008 diesel range:
1.4-litre HDi FAP 68bhp 104g/km
1.6-litre e-HDi FAP 92bhp 98g/km
1.6-litre e-HDi FAP 92bhp 103g/km
1.6-litre e-HDi FAP 115bhp 106g/km

In the months following its launch, the 2008’s engine range will be extended further with versions of the turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, with two power outputs available: 1.2-litre e-THP 110 and 1.2-litre e-THP 130.
