The new 2008, which will begin selling later this year, once begins to be produced at the brand's facilities in Vigo. It has little to do with the previous version, since it is built with the CMP (Common Modular Platform) platform, which serves as the basis for the new Peugeot 208, which was presented at the last Geneva Motor Show. This platform is more modern and allows to host several types of motorization, gasoline, diesel and for the first time, an 100% electric. Thermal engines comply with emission regulations. The gasoline, all 3 cylinders and 1.2 liters, the Euro 6d. They are the Puretech 100, 130 and 155, with manual gearbox of 6 gears or automatic EAT8. The diesels comply with the Euro 6d-TEMP, and are four-cylinder BlueHDi 100 and 130.
On an aesthetic level, the design of the new Peugeot 2008 keeps a certain relationship with the recently presented 208, with attractive and distinctive lines. The grill, of triangular type -in the color of the body in the electric version-, is flanked by optical groups with LED technology. In profile, the 2008 stands out for bulky wheel arches, as well as for tires up to 18 '' - in the GT Line and GT versions. At the rear, all the attention is focused on the pilots joined by a black one and the double exhaust outlet, available in the GT Line Puretech130 and BlueHDi 130 and GT Pure Tech 155 versions.
All this is complemented by the two-tone black diamond roof and the screen printed on the C-pillar of the GT Line and GT versions. The color range consists of the following colors: Elixir Red, Blue Vertigo and Orange Fusion.

Partly also because the measures change: 4,30 meters long (14 centimeters more than the previous 2008) and its battle grows 6 centimeters, up to 2,60 meters. This, in theory, improves interior habitability. Peugeot announces a boot capacity of 434 liters (338 liters in the outgoing model), a figure that remains even in the electric version.
The interior has also been completely revised, and now it looks more technological and ergonomic. The latest generation of the i-Cockpit is included, with the typical compact steering wheel, elevated instrumentation and an HD touch screen up to 10 inches in the center of the dashboard. The information in the instrument cluster is projected in the form of a hologram, as we have already seen in the Peugeot 208. According to the French brand, this system improves efficiency, ease of reading and safety while driving.
