Summer arrival for Peugeot 2008
Published 09/01/2013 | 05:00
PEUGEOT'S new urban crossover, the 2008, will be here in the summer after making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
It was shown as a concept guise in September's Paris Motor Show but now it's on its way here. Based on the Peugeot 208, the company expects to attract a different sort of buyer.
At 4.16 metres long, it mixes the merits of a hatchback and SUV. Peugeot says it will have a high driving position and LED daytime running lights.
The roofline stems from the double-bubble of the RCZ sports car while the boot has an especially low loading sill.
It will have the latest generation e-HDi diesel and new 3cyl petrols mean emissions will start at 99g/km.
Prices and equipment levels for models here will be announced nearer to the arrival date.
