All-new Peugeot 2008

Whether you choose petrol, diesel or 100% electric, the Peugeot 2008 promises to be a sporty and spirited SUV.

Personalise your drive

Drivers, get ready to choose your engine with the new, sharp, sophisticated and strikingly styled Peugeot 2008 compact SUV. The all-new 2008 is the second car to adopt Peugeot’s philosophy of giving customers the option to select your model and your powertrain. The 2008 SUV you get all comes down to how you put it together. With five powertrains, eight RGB LED colours for the interior and the option to upgrade to the sporty GT Line, it’s time to get personal.

Fierce styling

The all-new Peugeot 2008’s design is instrumental in distinguishing this SUV from its predecessors. It has a fierce face featuring a large chrome grille, with fang-like daytime lights running up the front bumper’s edges towards its three-claw full LED headlights. The angles, creases and lines along the body give it an assertive and sporty look.

Its bold and broad rear design also shares a likeness with its big brother, the 3008 SUV, with both featuring a strong black rear connecting strip. The 2008 is available in a range of different colours, including the new and exclusive Fusion Orange.

A next generation interior

Inside and out, the 2008 is fitted with the latest technology and design touches to enhance and enrich your driving experience. It’s only the second car to get Peugeot’s 3D i-Cockpit, a digital display above the compact steering wheel which uses hologram technology.

In the middle is a 10-inch infotainment system fitted with a TomTom satnav, which works with both Android AutoPlay and Apple CarPlay.

An all-electric SUV

The all-new Peugeot e-2008 has the same overall design as the combustion versions but comes with a few exclusive design features which set it apart, like the body-coloured front grille, fitted with sparkling dichroic lion emblem which changes colour, depending on your perspective. On the front side panel and tailgate, Peugeot have added an ‘e’ monogram.

The interior design has also been tweaked to be more suitable for electric driving. The 3D digital display includes an animation of specific information that shows the powertrain’s performance in real time, meaning you’ll always know your battery status.

The e-2008 is powered by a 100kw electric motor and 50kwh battery. With zero emissions, this sporty SUV has a range of 193 miles based on the WLTP test.

To make the most of your miles, the e-2008’s ‘Brake’ mode uses regenerative braking, which only kicks in when you stop accelerating. The car slows down and limits the use of the brake pedal which allows the battery to charge.

It also offers three driving modes to suit your driving experience. Eco mode optimises your driving range, normal mode focuses on maximising everyday use and comfort on the road, while sports mode offers powerful performance.

When it comes to recharging the e-2008, there are three options:

  • Rapid charge at public terminal: 80% charge in 30 minutes

  • Accelerate charge point at home: 100% charge in 8 hours

  • Domestic plug point: 100% charge in 20 hours +

You can also stay in change of your driving experience via the MyPeugeot app, which allows you to control the car remotely. Owners will enjoy some handy features like pre-setting the heating and air conditioning as well as checking the battery level and scheduling your car’s recharge.

Petrol and diesel models

For those who aren’t looking for an electric SUV, you can choose the 2008 with a PureTech petrol or BlueHDi diesel engine. There are 4 engines to choose from:

  • 2L PureTech engine with 100 S&S 6-speed manual

  • 2L PureTech 130 S&S 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic

  • 2L PureTech 155 S&S 8-speed automatic (only for GT trim)

  • 5L BlueHDi 100 S&S 6-speed manual

The sporty and stylish GT Line is available across all powertrains. The GT trim’s signature styling on the outside of the SUV includes the three-claw tailights and diamond-cut 18-inch wheels with coloured inserts. The interior’s design has a racing edge with black trim and Adamite colour stitching, which is complimented by mood lighting, dynamic seats and aluminium pedals.

Driving assistance features

The all-new Peugeot 2008 offers an intelligent driving experience, with driving assistance features like Lane Keeping Assist, which gradually fixes steering to keep the car in the lane and Active Blind Spot Monitoring, which activates when you’re overtaking, being overtaken or when there’s another car in your blind spot.
