Peugeot’s most affordable crossover, the second generation 2008, has launched in the United Kingdom.
The ICE-powered models are priced at £20,150 ($26,181/€23,639) and £34,275 ($44,534/€40,210) in the Active and GT grades, whereas the Allure and GT Line will set you back £22,350 ($29,039/€26,220) and £26,100 ($33,912/€30,619), respectively. The e-2008 starts at £28,150 ($36,575/€33,024), including the PiCG.
Three petrol and one diesel engine are available for the subcompact crossover. The lineup kicks off with the 100 PS (99 hp / 74 kW) version of the 1.2-liter mill, followed by the 130 PS (128 hp / 96 kW) variant, both of which are matched to a six-speed manual transmission. The latter is also available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while the 155 PS (153 hp / 114 kW) can only be paired to the self-shifting transmission. The 1.5-liter diesel, rated at 100 PS (99 hp / 74 kW), is matched to a six-speed manual ‘box.
Powering the e-2008 electric crossover is a 136 horsepower motor and a 50 kWh battery that gives it a range of up to 332 km (206 miles) in the WLTP test cycle. The battery is compatible with 100 kW fast charging, with 0-80 percent taking only 30 minutes, while AC and domestic charging raise the time to 7.5 and 24 hours, respectively.
Standard gear in the entry-level Active includes 16-inch alloy wheels, electrically adjustable and heated side mirrors and a 3.5-inch instrument panel display, with the e-2008 bringing pre-heating functionality and an electric parking brake. The Allure has glossy details on the outside, LED front fog lamps, Curitiba leather and Isabella cloth trim with light blue stitching, the i-Cockpit and a modular boot floor.
The GT Line adds a 180-degree reversing camera, sat-nav, ambient lighting, heated front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels and full LED headlights. The range-topping GT features Alcantara and Isabella upholstery, panoramic glass roof and several extra safety features, of which Active Safety Braking is standard on all models.
