About Peugeot 2008

The Peugeot 2008 is a subcompact crossover SUV that competes with the Kia Stonic, MG ZS, Proton X50, and DFSK Glory 500 SUV. According to the official website, it will be powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine that generates 131 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque and is transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed automated transmission.

Adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind-spot detection, hill-start assist, lane-keeping assist, electronic stability programming (ESP), drowsiness detection, road sign, and speed limit recognition and recommendation, 180-degree camera, overhead vehicle view, and other high-tech features are included in the 2008 model.

There are currently no details of the vehicle’s price for the Pakistani market but it is believed that LMC will position the Peugeot brand as a high-end alternative to Kia, which implies that 2008 could be priced anywhere between Rs. 4.3 million and Rs. 4.8 million.

Although this is a steep price tag, given the features, looks, and performance of the Peugeot SUV, it is likely to become one of the most popular vehicles among the high-end car buyers across Pakistan.
