Whilst this is labelled as a concept car, the Peugeot 2008 is actually already confirmed for production in the middle of 2013. It is designed to offer practicality to the younger generation whilst remaining fresh and offering something a little different in what is one of the busiest segments.
Under its sleek bonnet the 2008 Concept is equipped with a development of the new generation 3-cylinder petrol engines. In harmony with the dynamism and power exuded by this concept car, the 1.2-litre 3-cylinder engine has a turbo and direct injection. Developing its energy while remaining lightweight, it contributes to the versatility of the 2008 Concept with a power of 110bhp. This is combined with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Components of the Group’s down-sizing strategy, these 3-cylinder engines permit a breakthrough in terms of consumption and CO2 while offering real driving pleasure.
Granted, this car has featured for a little while but what do you think of it? I’m not a fan of the colour on this particular model but a midnight black or grey/silver would really enhance those curvaceous lines. More information to follow when a test drive is available.
