The visual updates are quite subtle but add a modern twist to the already stylish crossover, whilst the added GT Line also refines the 2008s exterior with a new grille, more sculpted wheel arches and a refreshing ‘Ultimate Red’ colour to choose from.
Since its introduction just under three years ago Peugeot have sold more than half a million 2008s sold worldwide and the French carmaker certainly knows the importance of the in-demand crossover within its range. Peugeot have not rested on their laurels and hopes that their updated model will stimulate further interest within the market.
The current line-up of Access, Active and Allure will be joined by a new GT Line spec that boasts 17 inch alloy wheels, unique badging and a specially designed red and black interior. Although there is as of yet no wording on prices, it is expected the GT Line may come in around £1,000 more than the Allure model which starts in the region of £16,000.
Take a step inside the cabin and you will be greeted with a crisp seven-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink technology. The 2008 also boasts options such as Active City Brake, Park Assist as well as an intelligent reversing camera to help you negotiate those tighter manoeuvres. Peugeot haven’t stopped there though, they have also gone the extra mile by increasing practicality allowing the 2008 to cater for an additional 60 litres of boot space so it now stands at an impressive 410 litres. This becomes increasingly impressive when you put the seats down, growing to a remarkable 1,400 litres.
The French manufacturer will officially unveil the revised 2008 at the Geneva Motor Show next month so keep your eyes peeled for all the latest information.
