New exciting addition to the Peugeot SUV Range
We are thrilled with the new addition to the Peugeot SUV family. With the success of the 3008, 5008 along with the stunning 508 and the lovable 208 they are now joined by the latest model the 2008. This can must compete in an already packed compact SUV class however it is certainly holding it’s own!
A SUV with a 1,2 litre. engine it certainly is very economical. It is fabulous to drive and very spacious for its class. The 2008 has a max power of 130bhp, 0 -100 km/h in 10.2 seconds with a low road tax of only €270.
It comes with a starting price tag of €23,900.00 and the GT Line Puretech 130 – €31,880
The 2008 is the latest in a series of PSA cars to use the CMP platform which is able to house both combustion driven and electrified powertrains. The 208 was the first Peugeot to use the platform. The sides are covered in angles and sharp creases and the front has that familiar Peugeot face which looks great. Around the back, it’s like a smaller sharper version of the 3008 with a flat bonnet and chunky wheel arches, all very SUV like. It’s on the inside where the 2008 really looks its best and makes rivals like the VW T-Cross look a little dull.
The analogue piano keys work as shortcuts to access controls on the touch screen such as Sat Nav and air-con. One of the best pieces of kit inside the 2008 is the digital dials, they have a really cool 3D effect which is created by layering two screens on top of each other and they look absolutely stunning.
The 2008 wheelbase is 65 mm longer than the 208 hatchback and you really notice that in the back, leg room is generous and there’s lots of space for fet under the seats. They still have the hump from the transmission tunnel in the centre of the floor and there’s no sliding rear bench but it’s still extremely competitive in its class. The three isofix points, two in the back one on the front passenger seat, mean it’s great for young families and the kids can keep their devices topped up with two easy access USB ports.
With 130 bhp from the 3 cylinder turbo engine, torque and smooth delivery make it an easy and relaxing drive, especially over long distances. Available in four trims from Active, Allure, GT line and GT, all of them come with plenty of standard kit. As standard you get 18” alloy wheels, LED headlights, half leather upholstery, heated front seats and interior ambient lighting. Buyers also get that cool 3D digital instrument binnacle and a 10” touchscreen infotainment system with built-in Sat Nav, a reversing camera and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
