Did you catch last night’s soft launch of Peugeot 2008? The mini-crossover has been launched in two variants: Peugeot 2008 Active and Peugeot 2008 Allure. Lucky Motors has revealed the prices and started the bookings for both variants. Let’s have a look at the specs and features of Peugeot 2008 to see what the new crossover has to offer.
Engine & Transmission
Both Peugeot 2008 variants are powered with a 1.2L turbocharged engine that produces 130 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. The engine is mated with 6-speed automatic transmission. There are three drive modes: Normal, Sports, and Eco.
Since Peugeot 2008 is the first European car in Pakistan, its overall looks are unique for our market. The front has beautiful LED headlights with DRLs. The headlights and DRLs in the Allure variant have a distinctive 3-claw design that are automatically turned on in the dark.
The Active variant has a glass front grille, whereas the same grille is chrome in the Allure variant. Both variants have 17-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lights, trunk lamp, high mount stop lamp, and electrically adjustable rearview mirrors with turn signals.
If buyers are drawn to the striking looks of Peugeot 2008, the car’s interior will seal the deal. Features such as push start system with smart entry, automatic central door locking, wireless trunk door key, 6-way manually adjustable front seats with armrest, electric power steering with height and angle adjustment, 7-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, and auto climate control are standard in both variants.
The Active variant comes with fabric seats with orange stitching. The seats in the Allure variant are of premium TEP material with grey stitching. The 10-inch instrument cluster is quartz in the Active variant and 3D in the Allure variant.
Other extras in the Allure variant include ice-blue ambient lighting, cruise control, roof rails, rain sensor, six speakers (four in the Active variant), and panoramic sunroof.
The French crossover is loaded with safety features. Seatbelts, ISOFIX child seat anchors, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Hill Assist, Electric Parking Brake, rear parking sensor, and rear camera are standard in both variants.
The Allure variant has extra safety features of High Beam Assist (HBA), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Assist, Active Blind Spot Detection and Front Sensor, and six airbags (four in the Allure variant).
The newly launched Peugeot 2008 is now available in four striking colors: Orange Fusion, Clear White, Cherry Black, and Sparkling Silver.
The price of the base Peugeot 2008 Active variant is Rs. 5,250,000, and that of the upper-end Peugeot 2008 Allure variant is Rs. 5,850,000.
Lucky Motors has priced the new B-segment crossover even more than its own C-segment hot-seller, the KIA Sportage. Not sure if that’s a stupid or a power move by the company; only time will tell.
