New Peugeot 2008: the design in the style of the older SUVs, some places now without mechanics

Company Peugeot has officially unveiled the restyled compact SUV, designed for the South American market.

Global crossover Peugeot 2008 was updated three years ago: the model got a different grille and tinted rear lights, on the wheel arches appeared plastic covers have also been expanded, a list of available equipment. However, to South America, the refreshed SUV made it just now for this region of the machine produced in the Brazilian factory of the group PSA. Local and restyled 2008 is different from the “world”.

So, the southern cross got the front bumper in the style of the older Peugeot 3008 and Peugeot 5008, on the grid and in blocks of fog light missing chrome inserts, and the rear bumper there is a silver lining. In addition, Brazilian the Peugeot 2008 did not change the lights. The cabin is nearly the same as the global cross, except that there are slightly different multimedia system.

In South America, the Peugeot 2008 is still offered with a four-cylinder “aspirated” 1.6 THP turbo engine of similar displacement. In Brazil, the engines run either on petrol or on ethanol. In the first case, the base engine produces 115 HP, THP – 166 HP, and the second 122 and 173 HP respectively. But Brazilians can now buy a Peugeot 2008 with only a six-speed automatic transmission, while the pre-reform crossover “aspirated” even combined with 5МКП, and a turbocharged engine was completed 6МКП. Although in Uruguay, for example, “mechanics” is preserved, and the engine 1.6 THP, in contrast, “automatic” and did not get.

“World” SUV manual transmission is also not lost. We will remind, four-wheel drive SUV, the Peugeot did not put in principle.

In the Brazilian market, the largest in South America, 2008 losing customers: last year sold 9745 such vehicles, which is 8% less than in 2017. For comparison, the SUV Hyundai Creta there found 48 976 owners (18%), and the choice on the Nissan Kicks stopped 46 812 clients (+40%).
