Peugeot 2008 (2020): At A Glance
Peugeot's answer to the SEAT Arona and Nissan Juke, the 2008 looks like a smaller version of the 3008 and, along with petrol, diesel and electric power.
It shares a platform with the DS 3 Crossback, as well as the upcoming Peugeot 208 and new Vauxhall Corsa. It's longer than the old 2008 and only marginally shorter than the bigger 3008. Despite this, its 360-litre boot is smaller, on paper, than the SEAT Arona and Honda HRV's.
The interior takes a similar approach to the 3008 and recent 508, meaning there'll be more soft-touch materials than before and a host of tech. There's Peugeot's i-Cockpit technology, featuring a small steering wheel and a new head-up display.
Available in Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trim levels, the higher-spec models will feature LED rear lights, diamond cut 18-inch alloy wheels with coloured inserts and mood lighting inside.
There's a 10-inch touchscreen display available featuring TomTom navigation, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
The petrol line-up will be made up of a 1.2-litre three-cylinder PureTech petrol engine with 100PS, 130PS or 155PS. The 100PS version comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 130PS with a choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic, while the range-topping 155 comes with an auto as standard.
The diesel offering, meanwhile, is a 100PS BlueHDi engine with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Prices for the new Peugeot 2008 will be announced ahead of it going on sale early in 2020. Expect a small increase over the current £18,055 start price, making it one of the priciest small crossovers on the market.
