THE COMPACT SUV
The PEUGEOT 2008 is a compact and assertive SUV, with an innovative exterior that enhances its presence.
Its design displays the characteristic features of the SUV segment, infusing them with extra power and toughness.

“The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® offers you a unique driving experience. With an uncluttered cockpit that’s ideal for staying alert and focused, it turns any trip into a real treat.
Thanks to the compact steering wheel, your arms are less open and your hands lower than they would be with a conventional wheel – so your driving style becomes livelier, nimbler and more relaxed.
You’ll never need to take your eyes off the road, thanks to the head-up instrument panel with blue LED lights around it. Here, all the key driving information can be viewed right away, allowing you to enjoy a driving experience that’s safer and more relaxed.
And last but not least, you can control the vehicle’s equipment features using the 7’’ touchscreeni.”

The springs, shock absorvers, anti-roll bars, front wheel axle unit and rear cross member have been specially designed to allow the entire engine assembly to deliver the most dynamic performance possible.
