New Peugeot 2008 SUV
The dramatic new Peugeot 2008 SUV delivers the ultimate escape from the urban chaos. With a striking look and turbocharged performance, you can expect an exhilarating ride.
Sharp design features highlight the strength and character of the our compact 2008 SUV and included in the design are vibrant new paint colours of Ultimate Red and Crystal Emerald for a striking finish.
When it comes to engine performance, you’ll be impressed by the award-winning PureTech turbo engine with its combination of power and efficiency and the adapted traction control system for ultimate responsivity on the road.
The advanced technology utilised in the 2008 SUV makes for a comfortable and luxurious driving experience with the automatic reversing camera, 7″ multi-functional colour touch screen and Peugeot Mirror Screen® technology for your smartphone.
With striking features such as a fully integrated grille, horizontal bonnet and rear spoilers, the exterior design of the 2008 SUV provides true presence on the road.
The sleek interior of the 2008 SUV offers a sense of space thanks to the clever use of glass and craftmanship of the design is obvious in the luxurious materials and attention to detail.
The innovative layout of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® makes driving intuitive, agile and safe as the ergonomic driving position helps focus your attention on the road ahead.
The compact sports steering wheel sits lower than a traditional design and means that your arms are both lower and closer together. This not only reduces driver fatigue but offers more precise steering and improved manoeuvrability.
The head-up instrument panel allows driver information to be viewed above, rather than through, the steering wheel and is therefore accessed without taking your eyes off the road. In addition, the large multifunction colour touch screen places all the functionality at your fingertips.
HEAD-UP INSTRUMENT PANEL
Cleverly positioned to ensure your eyes stay on the road, the head-up instrument panel has an understated, elegant design and a central screen that’s easy to read. All the essential information, right where you need it.
COMPACT STEERING WHEEL
The compact leather-finished steering wheel, combined with the equally compact size of the 2008 SUV, gives you an agile, exceptionally easy-to-handle experience – the perfect recipe for true driving pleasure.
7″ COLOUR TOUCH SCREEN
Perfectly positioned, the 7” touch screen gives you access to a wide range of functions, including navigation (optional on Active, standard on Allure and GT Line), music streaming, USB connectivity and hands-free Bluetooth™ calling.
TOUCH SCREEN WITH SATELLITE NAVIGATION
The 208 GTi is bursting with technology. Its multi-function colour touch screen acts as mission control, providing access and finger-tip control of all the car’s audio, communications and navigation equipment.
USB and Bluetooth™ functionality is supported for most other smartphones, accessed from the 7″ touch screen.
CAR-TO-GROUND CONNECTING COMPONENTS
The moment you move off, the excitement is palpable. With its finely tuned running gear, its stiffened suspension and its tracks widened by 10 mm at the front and 20 mm at the rear, the PEUGEOT 208 GTi follows the contours of the road with precision and agility to deliver an emotionally satisfying driving experience.
In combination with the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit and its compact steering wheel, and with improved car-to-ground connecting components and optimised weight to ensure enhanced responses, the wheelbase of the new PEUGEOT 208 GTi offers the ideal synthesis of comfort and sporty road holding, providing genuine driving enjoyment.
STOP & START TECHNOLOGY
Why waste fuel if you’re waiting at a red light or in traffic?
PEUGEOT’s Stop & Start system senses when you come to a halt and stops the engine – then starts it again as soon as you want to move off.
It means you use less fuel and produce up to 15% less CO₂ while driving in the city.
When the brake pedal is released, the engine is instantly restarted, with no noise or vibrations.
153kW TURBO ENGINE
The figures match up: the 208 GTi goes from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.5 seconds and can cover 1,000 metres in just 26.5 seconds. Pick-up is equally impressive: it goes from 80 – 120km/h in six seconds in fifth gear.
153kW TURBO ENGINE
With a turbocharged 1.6 THP petrol engine delivering 208 hp, the New Peugeot 208 GTi was designed for outstanding performance.
POWER / WEIGHT RATIO
The kerb weight of the 208 GTi is just 1,160 kg, giving it an excellent weight/power ratio of 132W/kg. It also achieves CO2 emissions of just 125 g/km and has a combined drive cycle of 5.4 l/100km.
The 208 GTi has a very special suspension system. The shock absorbers have been reinforced, its braking system strengthened, and its ESP system adapted, which means you have better driving position and more traction. This gives you a more controlled driving experience and better balanced suspension for even greater driving pleasure.
What makes the 208 GTi so great to drive? It could be the specially tuned suspension with firmed-up shock absorbers. Perhaps it’s the tailored electronic stability program and improved road holding. Or could it be the superb driving position with its compact steering wheel? You don’t need to decide – just enjoy the drive.
PEUGEOT AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Every PEUGEOT benefits from the company’s expertise in reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions.
Weight, aerodynamics, tyres, technological excellence – no effort has been spared to reduce the car’s environmental impact and break fresh ground in eco-design. For example, 25% of the polymers used in the 208 GTi are derived from recycled materials or materials of natural origin, while the rear bumper is made entirely of natural fibres, non-metallic recycled materials and biomaterials.
