The French based automaker Peugeot has released more details on the 2008, ahead of the crossover’s official debut scheduled for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The Peugeot 2008 is PSA’s attempt to enter the small crossover segment where the Nissan Juke has been the leader for a lot of years and models like the Opel / Vauxhall Mokka have recently been unveiled. The Peugeot 2008 is 4, 160 mm long and 1,740 mm wide, being 180 mm shorter and 100 mm narrower than the Mitsubishi ASX. The boot space in the 2008 stands at 360 liters, 56 liters less than the ones available on the 4008.
Peugeot says that a range of three- and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be available for the 2008, including the 1.2 liter three-cylinder turbo petrol with 61 kW or the 1.6 liter four-cylinder diesel with 69 kW, which is burning 3.7 liters of fuel every 100 km and it’s emitting less than 100 g/km of CO2. The Peugeot 2008 will get an infotainment system and personalization will include body decals, roof bars, mirror caps, new designs for the front grille and a lot of wheel choices. The model will be produced in Mulhouse, France.
