Peugeot 2008 SUV Technical information
The new 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 cycle) 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 (1.0L to 1.4L) in 2015, 2016 and 2017!
The innovative EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox is now available as standard with the 2008 SUV. Highly energy efficient, this technology means that emissions are reduced to only 7 g/km of CO2 in keeping with Peugeot’s reputation for reducing environmental impact. The lack of internal friction in the design makes it comparable to a manual gearbox and the Quickshift technology delivers seamless gear changes. With the EAT6 gearbox, you can expect a smooth ride.
Stop & Start Technology
Peugeot pride themselves on their commitment to reducing emissions and lowering fuel consumption and the design of this model has embraced Stop & Start technology for the ultimate in efficiency. This technology means that the engine will switch off when the vehicle comes to a stop and will then start up seamlessly when you set off again.
