New Peugeot 2008 mini-MPV revealed

Peugeot's new 2008 small SUV aims to take on the Nissan Juke and Vauxhall Mokka.

Peugeot has revealed the new 2008 small SUV, which is aiming to take on the Nissan Juke and Vauxhall Mokka. The new crossover is based on the Peugeot 208 supermini and will be officially unveiled to the public for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The front grille, sculpted bonnet and stylish rear lights are all signature Peugeot design cues, but the 2008 rides on jacked-up suspension and gets rugged SUV touches like underbody protection and roof rails.

Underneath the bonnet the big news is a new turbocharged 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine. Peugeot hasn’t confirmed exact figures, but we’re expecting to see 110bhp, with fuel economy of more than 60mpg. A 1.6-litre e-HDi diesel engine emits just 99g/km of CO2 and is the cleanest in the range.

Unusually for an SUV, there's no four-wheel-drive option, but buyers can specify Peugeot’s Grip Control, which adds a clever traction control system and Mud&Snow tyres to help improve the 2008’s off-road ability.

Prices are yet to be confirmed, but the most basic models in the range will probably cost around £13,500 when the first 2008s arrive in UK showrooms in September.
