Peugeot release details of new 2008 SUV

Peugeot has released details of its redesigned compact SUV – the 2008.

Designed with families in mind, the 2008 offers the look of an off-roader but the usability of a hatchback. This new model brings with it a host of new engines to choose from, as well as extra colour combinations and added technology.

Inside, there’s a seven-inch colour touch screen, along with a head-up display to relay information directly to the driver, taking away the need to look down at the instrument binnacle.

It is also equipped with MirrorScreen, which gives smartphone users a better level of integration between their device and the car’s infotainment. A reversing camera is also included – along with Active City Brake and Park Assist, which are a rare sight on a car in this segment.

On the outside 3D LED lights give excellent visibility even in bad conditions, and a newly-designed front grille and scuff plates give the 2008 a rugged, go-anywhere look.

Grip Control offers a variety of different modes to give excellent traction no matter what the surface. With five modes to choose from – standard, snow, mud, sand and ESP off – the 2008 can live up to its off-roading looks.

A range of low emission engines are offered with the car, going from a 1.2-litre petrol to a 1.6-litre diesel. All return excellent emission and consumption figures, while maintaining an interesting drive. A higher ride height gives drivers a more commanding view of the road, while returning economy figures not usually associated with an off-roader.
