PEUGEOT 2008 SUV NAMED 2017 DRIVER POWER BEST SMALL SUV
We’re delighted that the 2008 SUV has been awarded the 2017 Auto Express Driver Power Best Small SUV. In presenting this award, Auto Express Driver Power stated “Small SUVs have to strike a careful balance between practicality, frugal running costs and agile driving to suit the urban environments in which they’re often used. The Peugeot 2008 SUV has done exactly this and has beaten more established competitors to the title in this competitive sector.
In addition, Steve Fowler editor-in-chief of Auto Express stated “The 2008 SUV’s gold award in the small SUV category shows how happy customers are with modern Peugeots, and shows that the brand has a clear understanding of its customers’ needs and desires.”
The exterior style of the 2008 SUV builds on its SUV strength and character with high-tech headlights,
a striking vertical front grille and a rear sports spoiler all available in the range.
The 2008 SUV’s sharp design and robust character incorporate all the qualities of a compact SUV.
Its vertical front face features a fully integrated grille with an embossed pendant design that surrounds the central Peugeot lion badge. The horizontal bonnet and rear sports spoiler enhance the sophisticated, sportier look while front and rear scuff plates* and roof bars provide SUV practicality. Wheel arch extensions* add to the SUV styling and provide more protection for the bodywork.
This more powerful, assertive style offers the 2008 SUV a distinctive air of adventure.
*Standard from Allure level
Two-tone black and chrome headlights provide definition and structure to the 2008 SUV. Integrated LED daytime running lights add finesse to the new design and provide excellent visibility.
Instantly recognisable as a Peugeot, the tailgate is framed by full LED rear light clusters with a 3D ‘claw’ design. This trademark design has become an integral part of Peugeot’s style identity and features on the entire 2008 SUV range.
The 2008 SUV’s interior has been designed and crafted with your lifestyle in mind.
The innovative layout in the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® makes driving intuitive, agile and safe as the ergonomic driving position helps focus your attention on the road ahead.
The compact sports steering wheel sits lower than a traditional design and means that your arms are both lower and closer together. This not only reduces driver fatigue but offers more precise steering and improved manoeuvrability.
The head-up instrument panel allows driver information to be viewed above, rather than through, the steering wheel and is therefore accessed without taking your eyes off the road. In addition, the large multifunction colour touchscreen places all the functionality at your fingertips.
SOPHISTICATION AND LUXURY
The 2008 SUV has a sophisticated and sleek interior with a seductively high level of finish.
The lighting ambience has been created with particular care. The inside of the 2008 SUV is bathed in natural light thanks to the generous amount of glass featured in the car’s design. This adds to a sense of freedom and space enjoyed by the driver and their passengers.
The finely crafted décor works in harmony with ultramodern mood lighting to create a refined and elegant atmosphere. Chic and innovative, the Peugeot LED Track* provides ambient lighting from the laser cut headlining while the panoramic glass roof** is equipped with high-tech light guides. The head-up instrument panel features LED dial surrounds* which come on automatically as soon as the side lights are switched on, adding an extra touch of luxury to the interior lighting ambience.
*Available from Allure level
**Optional on Allure, standard on GT Line
SPACE AND CONVENIENCE
Spacious and practical, the boot has a low loading height of 60cm and the 1/3-2/3 modular rear seats allow you to convert the boot volume from 410 litres to 1400 litres.
Pressing the button at the top of the backrest is enough to tilt the back allowing the seats to fold down automatically into a completely flat floor.
Grip Control® is an adapted traction control system which responds to most terrains and weather conditions. It acts on the front wheels by adjusting wheel spin and torque to optimise traction in low-grip conditions.
Versatile and adaptable, this system has control built in. The Grip Control® dial located on the centre console lets you choose the appropriate mode for the surface you encounter. Coupled with 17” Alloy wheels and Mud & Snow tyres, it is now compatible with the EAT6 automatic gearbox. Grip Control® uses electronic components that are already installed in the car meaning that it adds no extra weight and therefore no excessive fuel consumption, unlike a traditional 4x4.
Grip Control® is standard from Allure level, excluding 1.2L PureTech 82.
Grip Control® offers five driving modes:
- ESP Off
3D CONNECTED SATELLITE NAVIGATION
3D connected Satellite Navigation* is linked to the 7.0” capacitive colour touchscreen. The system includes European mapping, 3D city mapping and voice recognition (for radio, navigation and telephone functions).
When ordered in conjunction with PEUGEOT Connect SOS & Assistance* there is a three year subscription and the system has an automatic and permanent connection to online navigation services (in partnership with TomTom®). This can also be achieved through tethering a compatible smartphone (data charges may apply).
Key features of PEUGEOT Connect include:
*Optional on Active and Allure models at additional cost; standard on GT Line. Additional terms and conditions apply to connected services, including customer acceptance of location sharing prior to activation.
ENGINES AND EAT6 GEARBOX
Designed to produce drivability and performance, the PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines in the Peugeot 2008 SUV combine efficiency with cutting-edge technology resulting in greater driving pleasure with lower running costs.
The 2008 SUV also features the 6-speed petrol automatic gearbox which uses quickshift technology allowing for faster gear changes – and is the new benchmark for driving enjoyment.
Our BlueHDi diesel engines deliver high performance, impressive fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Every diesel version of the 2008 SUV emits under 97g/km of CO2
High performance, versatile and efficient PureTech and BlueHDi engines offer a responsive driving experience on the 2008 SUV without compromising on fun and enjoyment.
The compact steering wheel in the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is linked to a specific suspension system, which is adapted according to engine. The weight-optimised drivetrain combines simplicity and reactivity, offering the perfect balance of comfort and road holding to guarantee real driving pleasure.
Peugeot Mirror Screen® brings you CarPlay® functionality, providing voice activation for the driver, meaning compatible and safe applications, such as Google Maps and call features can be activated and used without removing your hands from the wheel.
The reversing camera* automatically activates when reverse gear is engaged and allows the driver to view the area behind the vehicle while the manoeuvre is taking place.
*Optional on Allure, standard on GT Line
The 2008 SUV offers a range of safety equipment to keep you and your passengers safe.
All versions of the 2008 SUV have a high level of active safety and are equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Control) as standard. This comprises Traction Control (ASR), Stability Control (CDS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Anti-wheel lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).
ESP is combined with Hill Assist*, which briefly immobilises the vehicle, giving you time to move your foot from brake to accelerator when starting the car on a slope.
*Hill Assist is unavailable on the 1.2L PureTech 82 & 1.6L BlueHDi 75 & 1.6L BlueHDi engines
The 2008 SUV has an ultra-light body structure designed to absorb as much energy as possible from any impact. This minimises the consequences for passengers, pedestrians and vehicles.
As well as enhancing safety, this robust yet lightweight structure gives you livelier handling, optimised fuel consumption and greater driving pleasure.
The 2008 SUV includes six airbags as standard, offering extra protection for you and your passengers if you’re involved in an accident.
In addition, front passenger seat airbag deactivation is available across the 2008 SUV range, so that baby can travel in the front seat.
ISOFIX CHILD SEAT ANCHOR POINTS
Keep your little ones as safe as possible in the back of the 2008 SUV, where there are two three-point ISOFIX fittings for child seats.
Two of the anchor points are at the back of the seat cushion and the third is in the back seat panel.
CORNERING ASSIST FOG LIGHTS*
In low beam or high beam, this function allows the front fog lights to illuminate the inside of a bend when the vehicle speed is below 25 mph. This gives you extra visibility when driving in town, on winding country roads, at junctions or when you are parking.
*Standard from Allure level
PEUGEOT CONNECT SOS
Peugeot Connect SOS* is technology that could prove vital in an emergency.
*Peugeot Connect SOS is optional on Active & Allure and standard on GT Line and subject to acceptance when ordering the vehicle. Terms and conditions apply.
