Fresh looking Peugeot 2008 to make local entrance soon 

Sihle Mkhize

An SUV with a global vocation, the new Peugeot 2008 SUV will be marketed locally from the end of January 2021.

The first Peugeot 2008 was introduced to the public in 2013 following its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March of the same year. The 2008 was just 4.16 meters long, making it about just a tad longer than most superminis. However, it offered the higher driving position that crossover users wanted and could be fitted with large 17-inch alloy wheels.

The original Peugeot 2008 was updated, with more tech, and upgraded engines by the 2016 facelifted version. The distinctive differences from the original model were the new vertical grille, wheel arch extensions, new black and chrome headlight casings, stoplights along with new rim designs. The interior came with LED dome lights, more storage compartments, Mirror Screen, Apple Carplay and more. Power came from either 1.2-liter gasoline or a 1.6-liter diesel engine, but each came in two or three power outputs and could be matched to a 5-speed manual, 5-speed auto or a 6- speed auto gearbox. New top level GT Line trims were also introduced. The facelifted Peugeot 2008 achieved sales of over a million units before the unveiling of its second generation.

More of the remarkable features of the stunning second-generation Peugeot 2008 will be revealed at its launch in February. Our exciting and reassuring vision of the future is confirmed once again by the new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV. In anticipation of the local launch, we are very pleased to share the model line up and pricing. We are also able to confirm that the locally marketed new 2008 will be available in 6 speed manual and 6 speed automatic transmissions, matched to a single petrol engine, with differing outputs.
