The innovative layout of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® makes driving intuitive, agile and safe as the ergonomic driving position helps focus your attention on the road ahead.
The compact sports steering wheel sits lower than a traditional design and means that your arms are both lower and closer together. This not only reduces driver fatigue but offers more precise steering and improved manoeuvrability.
The head-up instrument panel allows driver information to be viewed above, rather than through, the steering wheel and is therefore accessed without taking your eyes off the road. In addition, the large multifunction colour touch screen places all the functionality at your fingertips.

The PEUGEOT 2008 SUV offers agile and efficient performance thanks to its award-winning PureTech turbo engine in combination with the advanced EAT6 six-speed automatic transmission.
The new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV features our award winning PureTech three-cylinder turbo petrol engine guaranteeing performance and economy. It produces 81kW of power, and 205Nm of torque at a low 1500rpm.
Compared with a similar four-cylinder engine, the Puretech Engine is 12kg lighter. It also owes its high-level of performance to optimised combustion and limited internal friction. Despite offering remarkable performance, this engine is also very economical, with up to 25 per cent lower fuel consumption (4.8L/100km highway cyclei) and CO2 emissions (110g/km) compared to a four-cylinder engine of the same power.
No wonder it’s been awarded International Engine of the Year in its class in 2015 and 2016.
The 2008 SUV now features the EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox as standard, optimising fuel consumption while heightening your driving sensations. Also included is Quickshift technology, which delivers frequent gear changes swiftly and fluently.
Meanwhile, its yield (energy efficiency) virtually equals that of a manual gearbox thanks to a reduction in internal friction and the addition of converters that lock whenever required to avoid slippage.
All of which means the difference in emissions between this and a manual gearbox has been cut down to just 7 g/km of CO2, making the 2008 SUV an exceptionally fine performer in terms of both driving enjoyment and fuel consumption.
Fast, efficient and silent, Stop & Start technology allows the engine to be put on "standby" just before and after a stationary period. The result is improved control of fuel consumption and a reduction in CO2. emissions.
When the brake pedal is released, reignition occurs instantly, with no noise or vibrations.
The new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV offers a range of safety equipment to keep you and your passengers safe.
Active City Brake* is a new technology which makes it possible to avoid an accident or reduce its seriousness if the driver fails to react. It works in urban conditions, at speeds of less than 30km/h. A short range sensor is fitted to the top of the windscreen and can detect other vehicles that are driving in the same direction or stationary. This will automatically trigger an emergency brake to stop the vehicle and avoid a collision entirely, or limit the consequences of an accident by reducing the speed of impact.

All versions of new 2008 SUV have a high level of active safety and are equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Control) as standard. This comprises Traction Control (ASR), Stability Control (CDS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Anti-wheel lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).
ESP is combined with Hill Assist, which briefly immobilises the vehicle, giving you time to move your foot from brake to accelerator when starting the car on a slope.
The new 2008 SUV has an ultra-light body structure designed to absorb as much energy as possible from any impact. This minimises the consequences for passengers, pedestrians and vehicles.
As well as enhancing safety, this robust yet lightweight structure gives you livelier handling, optimised fuel consumption and greater driving pleasure.
The new 2008 SUV includes six airbags as standard, offering extra protection for you and your passengers if you’re involved in an accident.
Keep your little ones as safe as possible in the back of the new 2008 SUV, where there are two three-point ISOFIX fittings for child seats.
Two of the anchor points are at the back of the seat cushion and the third is in the back seat panel.
In low beam or high beam, this function allows the front fog lights to illuminate the inside of a bend when the vehicle speed is below 25 mph. This gives you extra visibility when driving in town, on winding country roads, at junctions or when you are parking.
