Peugeot 2008 (2013–2019)

Model History

January 2013

Peugeot 2008 unveiled

Features Grip Control as well as raised ride height to give some off road capability. All versions of the 2008 are fitted as standard with an ESP, which combines several functions such as anti-skid regulation (ASR), stability control (CDS), emergency braking assistance (EBA) and electronic brake force distribution (EBFD).

With its wheelbase of 2.54m, the 2008 offers interior characteristics of a high level. The rear passengers have a generous amount of space, thanks to the thinner front seat backs, and a 12v socket for the connection of a portable device. Without leaving their seat, they can access the boot even when the vehicle is moving. To permit this, the front part of the load space cover pivots.

Peugeot 2008 wheel and tyre sizes are 16-inch with 205/55 R16s; 17-inch with 205/50 R17 and 18-inch with 205/45 R18 or 215/40 R18. By far the best on 205/55 R16s.

From the outside, access to the large boot is just as easy with a large rectangular opening and a low loading sill, just 60cm high, trimmed with a brushed stainless steel protector. The modular bench seat allows you to change the volume from 360 litres to 1194 litres. One press on the control at the top of the rear seat back is all it takes to fold the seat back, the seat cushion retracts automatically.

The new generation of 3-cylinder petrol engines has already proved its efficiency in terms of consumption and emissions of CO2. But it is also compact and light with, for the 1.2 VTi, a reduction of 21kg compared to a 4-cylinder engine of equivalent power.

This technology was introduced successfully by the e-HDi engines on the 508 and 308 before being popularised by the 208. Today, the e-VTi engines launched by the 2008 allow customers choosing petrol to enjoy the same benefits.

Stop&Start allows the 2008 to offer excellent fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions while retaining a high level of driving pleasure. The six engines fitted with this system start with CO2 at only 98g/km for diesel and 99g/km for petrol.

In the months following its launch, the engine range will be expanded versions of the supercharged three-cylinder gasoline engine. Two power levels are available; 1.2-litre e-THP 110 and 1.2-litre e-THP 130 offer smooth driving characteristics, due mostly to its high torque, respectively of 205 and 230Nm.

Peugeot 2008 available to order from £12,995

The 2008 range consists of four trim levels: Access+, Active, Allure & Feline. Building on a product positioning strategy introduced with the 208, the 2008 Crossover has competitive and progressive pricing, with less than a £1000 walk from an equivalent trim level 208 version, coupled with high levels of specification, offering the customer great value and choice throughout the range.

Range highlights include CO2 from 98g/km, economy up to 74.3 mpg in the Combined Drive Cycle and the new 3 Cylinder VTi 82bhp petrol engine, successfully introduced on 208. The new 2008 Crossover also sees the introduction, as standard, of Grip Control on Allure and Feline models.

This is standard on Allure and Feline models and available on all but the 1.2 VTi petrol & diesel 1.6 e-HDi Stop &Start EGC.

Black door mirrors also add to the distinctive exterior styling.

February 2016

Facelifted 2008 revealed

It gets wheel arch extensions (from Allure level), new vertical front grille and scuff plates (from Allure level). There is a new Ultimate Red colour while the Access, Active and Allure levels are complemented by a GT Line model.

New features include MirrorScreen, based on MirrorLink and Apple Carplay, along with the reversing camera, Active City Brake and Park Assist.

The Grip Control feature is available on engines from 100PS, whether they are manual or automatic, with 17-inch’ alloy wheels.

To enhance safety in urban areas, the PEUGEOT 2008 is equipped with Active City Brake - a new technology which makes it possible to avoid an accident or reduce its seriousness if the driver fails to react. It works in urban conditions at speeds of less than 20mph.

A short range sensor is fitted to the top of the windscreen and can detect other vehicles that are driving in the same direction or stationary. This will automatically trigger an emergency brake to stop the vehicle and avoid a collision entirely or limit the consequences of an accident by reducing the speed of impact.

The petrol range of the new 2008 includes a choice of five engines:

  • 1.2L PureTech 82, 5-speed manual gearbox, 57.6mpg, with CO2 at 114g/km,
  • 1.2L PureTech 82, 5-speed electronically-controlled gearbox, 64.2mpg, with CO2 at 102g/km,
  • 1.2L PureTech 110 S&S, 5-speed manual gearbox, 60.1mpg, with CO2 at 103g/km,
  • 1.2L PureTech 110 S&S, 6-speed automatic (EAT6), 58.9mpg, CO2 at 110g/km
  • 1.2L PureTech 130 S&S, 6-speed manual, 58.9mpg, with CO2 at 110g/km

Allure Premium trim launched

Based on Allure trim, Allure Premium brings a full roster of tech and connectivity including a 7-inch colour touchscreen with Connected 3D Satellite Navigation, voice control and TomTom live updates, as well as Peugeot Connect SOS & Assistance.

A standard Cielo panoramic glass roof with an electric blind and ambient lighting adds to the high-quality feel of the car’s widely praised interior, whilst the Oxford Black trim gives a feeling of sophistication on the inside. The car also benefits from Peugeot’s innovative i-Cockpit with a trademark compact steering wheel trimmed in leather.

On the outside, colour-coded door mirrors and door handles, rear sports spoiler, front & rear scuff plates, wheel arch extensions and roof bars give the car a commanding road presence, while a colour reversing camera and rear parking aid offers assistance for those tight parking spaces.

Allure Premium trim is offered with two engines - the 1.2-litre PureTech 82 petrol and 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100.
