The Peugeot Urban Crossover previews the Peugeot 2008
Peugeot has revealed the Urban Crossover Concept at the Beijing Motor Show which previews the Peugeot 2008 Compact SUV.
We’ve already had the news that Peugeot won’t be building an estate or convertible version of the new 208, but they will be building an SUV and its almost certain to be badged the Peugeot 2008.
And if we’re not very much mistaken, the Peugeot Urban Crossover Concept revealed today in Beijing is, minus a few concept fripperies and with a quick badge change, the new Peugeot 2008.
Peugeot wax lyrical about the Urban Concept being designed to meet the future mobility needs of megacities and describe it as “Elegant and cheeky, refined and charismatic, sporty and seductive”.
Take away the hype and what’s left is a stylish Peugeot compact SUV with plenty of character. Its raked windscreen and almost coupe-like roof make the Urban Crossover quite sleek, and Peugeot has borrowed styling elements from the sporty RCZ with the double bubble roof and spoiler.
Peugeot are planning to give the Urban Crossover Concept a European debut at Paris in September, so don’t be surprised to find that turning in to the Peugeot 2008 by early 2013.
