New Peugeot 2008 to debut at Geneva

Another car to debut at Geneva will be the new Peugeot 2008.

The car has enjoyed sales growth worldwide since its launch, in mid-2013. With 500,000 units sold up to the end of 2015, it has retained a podium place in its segment, in Europe for two years, and is also Peugeot’s best-selling car in Ireland.

Peugeot says the Geneva Motor Show will reveal a more robust SUV appearance, new colour options, new GT trim, increased connectivity solutions, and extra driver-assist options.

Powered by a range of Euro6, PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines, four best-in-class engines are on offer. The new-look, Peugeot 2008 arrives in Ireland this August/September.

Wheel-arch extensions, a new, vertical front grille, and scuff plates that protect the bodywork give the new Peugeot 2008 a more assertive SUV look. It retains the now-familiar, Peugeot lighting signature at the front, whilst the rear lamps feature a new, 3D lion-claw effect. A new, Ultimate Red colour, first seen on the 308 GTi ,by PEUGEOT Sport, and the new Emerald Crystal colour, epitomise the desirability of the new 2008.

Access, Active and Allure levels are now crowned by the new, superior GT Line trim. The GT Line trim delivers a sporty, chic look, with a red/black colour theme inside and out, complemented by new, 17” alloy wheels finished in a gloss-black treatment.

Pricing and specifications will be announced closer to launch.
