The 2016 Peugeot 2008 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), new vertical front grille and scuff plates (from Allure level) confirm its robustness and are designed for everyday use. With a new Ultimate Red color shade, the refreshed 2008 is further epitomized as a compact SUV with power and desirability.
The Access, Active and Allure levels are complemented by the new sporty ‘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 2008, being agile, intuitive and safe. The compact sports steering offers precise steering and improved manoeuvrability while the 7-inch multifunction color 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.
Another feature unique to the Peugeot 2008 is the Grip Control, an adapted traction system. The Grip control gives the 2008 its versatility on all types of terrain. It is combined with Mud & Snow (All-Season) tyres. Peugeot 2008 is also equipped with MirrorScreen, based on MirrorLink and Apple Carplay, along with the reversing camera, Active City Brake and Park Assist; a rarity in this segment. An unparalleled dynamic performance is apparent in all versions. 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.
The Peugeot 2008 has sold over 40,000 units in the U.K. and the updated model is expected to continue popularity of Peugeot’s stylish and versatile compact SUV.
