The second-gen Peugeot 2008 debuted in 2019, and can be considered as “not-that-old”. However, it has been nearly 4 years now, and a facelift is certainly due. Which is exactly what Peugeot did with the 2008. The 2024 Peugeot 2008 facelift has already been listed on Peugeot France official website, and your local dealer might be able to help you out with further information. In the meantime, let’s take a look at all the hoopla.
Speaking of which, there’s a revised front fascia where the three claws have been moved to the bumper as opposed to in the headlights in the outgoing model. The headlights are also new, obviously, and it’s the range-topping GT trim that gets these full LED headlights. Speaking of trims, buyers get to choose from 2008 Active, 2008 Allure and 2008 GT. Allure and GT trims get 17-inch Diamond-cut alloy ‘Karakoy’ wheels, and the latter also offers an option of 18-inch ‘Evissa’ wheels. At the rear, the re-designed taillights have horizontal lines as opposed to vertical ones in the outgoing model. Buyers get to choose from 6 exterior paint options: Selenium Grey, Artense Grey, Okenite White, Black Perla Nera, Elixir Red and Vertigo Blue. The GT comes with a black roof as standard.
Inside, key features include a new 10-inch driver display; standard 10-inch touchscreen (7-inch standard previously on first two trims); wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity; natural language voice recognition with “Ok Peugeot” command; a new selector in the centre console; three USB-C sockets as standard (two at the front, one at the rear) and one USB-A socket (at the rear) for Allure and GT trims, and ADAS suite that includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go function; Automatic Emergency Braking with collision warning; extended recognition and display of traffic signs in the digital instrument cluster; Active Lane Departure Warning with lane correction; Driver Attention Alert, and Blind-spot Monitoring. There’ll also be Parking assistance with new high-definition front and rear cameras offering a 360° view of the surroundings.
Moving on to the juicy bits of the story, the new Peugeot 2008 offers PureTech 100 (73 kW/100 metric hp 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo petrol; 6-MT), PureTech 130 (96 kW/130 metric hp 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo petrol; 6-MT) and BlueHDi 130 (96 kW/130 metric hp 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo diesel; 8-MT) options. All three are equipped with a Stop & Start system.
There’ll also be an all-electric powertrain, of course, which is called the E-2008. The front electric motor now offers 115 kW or 156 metric hp, an increase of 20 metric hp. The battery pack capacity is also up from 50 kWh to 54 kWh, enabling a WLTP mixed cycle range of up to 406 km (252 mi) as opposed to 345 km (214 mi) in the outgoing model. A 7.4 kW charger comes standard, while there’s an option to go for a three-phase 11 kW charger.
Peugeot further said that at the beginning of 2024, the new 2008 will receive a new 48-volt (mild) hybrid powertrain that combines an updated version of the PureTech petrol engine coupled with an electric motor integrated into a 6-speed DCT. This technology offers extra torque at low engine speeds and up to 15% lower fuel consumption, the company added.
