Introducing the New 2008 SUV. With its sharp design, vibrant finish, high quality interior and innovative technology, this is an SUV built with strength and character. Motoring journalist and racing driver Rebecca Jackson put the New 2008 SUV Allure model (click on the play button below to watch the video), with a 1.6L BlueHDi 120 Stop & Start engine, through its paces on the stunning driving roads of south Wales, under the shadow of Pen y Fan.
Check out its striking new vertical front grille and horizontal bonnet – complemented by rear sports spoiler, wheel arch extensions*, front and rear scuff plates* and roof bars. To complete the look there are also black and chrome headlights*, as well as 3D LED rear lights.
Its interior is sophisticated and sleek, with ambient lighting provided by the LED dial instrument surrounds, LED Track roof lighting* and the innovative PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® offers an instinctive driving layout, which includes a precise compact steering wheel, a 7″ multifunction colour touchscreen and and a head up instrument panel, which keeps the driver’s focus entirely on the road. This all equates to an intuitive, enjoyable driving experience.
The compact sports steering wheel sits lower than a traditional design and means that your arms are both lower and closer together. This reduces driver fatigue as driver information isn’t obstructed as it’s viewed from above, rather than through, the steering wheel.
As for technology? The New PEUGEOT 2008 SUV has it in spades. This includes Active City Brake*, Reversing Camera*, Park Assist* and CarPlay®*. All are designed to improve and enhance your driving experience.
The New PEUGEOT 2008 SUV comes with a range of modern and efficient engines. Designed to maintain performance and keep your fuel costs and CO² emissions under control, the options include the 1.2L PureTech 130 S&S, which won the ‘International Engine of the Year’ award in both 2015 and 2016 in the 1.0L to 1.4L category. As well as three BlueHDi diesel engines, all emitting under 97 g/km CO2 making them exempt from Road Tax.
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.
By choosing the appropriate mode for the surface you encounter (Mud, Sand, Snow, ESP off and Standard), Grip Control® compensates for the change in conditions. Unlike a traditional 4×4, Grip Control® uses electronic components already installed in the car meaning no extra weight and therefore no excessive fuel consumption.
So for a car that puts you firmly in control, take a look at the New PEUGEOT 2008 SUV.
