Further details revealed about the new Peugeot 2008

Ahead of its world premiere at next week's Geneva Motor Show, the Peugeot 2008 has been detailed in full.

The spiritual successor to the popular Peugeot 208, the new compact urban crossover looks to build on the success of the French manufacturer's supermini thanks to a host of eye-catching features.

For starters, the Peugeot 2008's e-HDi diesel and three-cylinder petrol technology is able to limit its CO2 emissions to as little as 98g/km while achieving up to 61.8mpg of fuel economy.

Then there are the standout technology features of the 2008, with the inclusion of Peugeot Connect Apps giving drivers the opportunity to travel with complete autonomy and freedom.

Moving on to the car's exterior design, secure roof bars can accommodate anything from a bicycle carrier to a ski carrier or a roof box.

Head inside the Peugeot 2008 and drivers will be in awe of how the vehicle's air vents, handbrake lever, steering wheel, gear lever and touchscreen are finished in smart satin chrome detailing.

Eric Dejou, the Peugeot 2008's design manager, noted: "Creating the 2008 was a great challenge but we had a very precise idea of the vehicle that we wanted to offer customers.

"The style brought to life in an early phase did not require any major modifications up until production. The very first sketch was perfect."
