Peugeot 2008 Compact Crossover SUV at Paris 2012Tue, 11 Sep 2012
Peugeot are taking the 2008 Compact Crossover to the Paris Motor Show previewing the forthcoming small SUV based on the 208.
Peugeot may have suffered the ignominy of being dumped from France’s elite stock market listings, but that isn’t going to stop the French car maker making something of a show on their home turf at the Paris Motor Show this month.
We’ve already confirmed that Peugeot are taking the production versions of the new 208 GTi and 208 XY to Paris, and they are also taking the hybrid supercar Peugeot Onyx Concept.
But now it looks like we’re going to see the production concept of a compact SUV / Crossover based on the new 208 – the Peugeot 2008.
We had a good idea the 2008 was on its way when Peugeot showed the Urban Crossover Concept at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year, but with these photos of the 2008 appearing it looks like the 2008 is close to production.
Engine lineup for the 2008 is expected to mimic what’s on offer in the new 208 including a hybrid 4WD version with an electric motor running the back axle.
More when we get it.
