The new Peugeot 2008 SUV is here and we recently we spent time with it. The compact SUV is good looking inside and outside.
You won’t miss the new Peugeot 2008 SUV with its stunning exterior design. Standing out in the front is a large grille with a diamond effect, a carved bonnet and LED daytime running lights with a three-claw and sabre tooth design that integrates into the bumper.
The side profile is beautifully sculptured and almost appears coupe like with the design of the c-pillar. The rear also looks good with the three-claw design LED lights that feature prominently.
Moving inside, the interior quality can easily be described as class leading. Peugeot’s i-Cockpit 3D is available and comes with a large touchscreen infotainment, digital instrument cluster and a small steering wheel. These work well and are a marvel to look at (except the small steering wheel can obscure the instrument cluster). The car also offers decent space inside by segment standards.
The GT Line we had on test is powered by a 96kW/230Nm 1.2-litre engine. It gets up to decent speeds quickly and doesn’t struggle to maintain them. Comfort and a well-insulated cabin also make a case for the new Peugeot 2008 SUV. Final thoughts, pricing and warranty
After spending some time time with the new Peugeot 2008, our assessment is that it is not here to just add numbers, it is worth considering if buying in the segment.
Pricing The new Peugeot 2008 is priced from R359,900. 5
