Peugeot 2008 SUV 2018 review | Mat watson Reviews
The grille and sharp lines of headlights are made in the recognizable family style of Peugeot in recent years. A “stepped” roof, roof bars and wide wheel arches complete the overall exterior. The wave in the middle of the roof is made not so much for beauty, but for good: so the French won an extra reserve of height space for rear passengers. Unpainted elements of the bumper and sills hint at practicality and versatility.
The crossover is also more capacious than a hatch - the volume of its luggage compartment is 360 liters, but by folding the back of the back sofa (in the ratio 60:40), the size of the compartment can be increased to 1194 liters. In addition to the main cargo compartment, the crossover is equipped with a large number of niches and drawers that provide another 24 liters of storage space.
There are seven engines in 2008: four petrol and three diesel engines. On the basic version put a gasoline three-cylinder motor 1.2 liters capacity of 82 hp Turbocharged versions of the same unit: 1.2 THP 110 l. with. and 1.2 THP 130 hp
