New Peugeot 2008 Restyling, Specs, Performance & Release Date
2019 Peugeot 2008 Restyling, Specs, Performance & Release Date – A word used to frame (to spans) the size of the parking lot and remember that the car in question could be a close relative of another, built on the same floor and equipped with the same engines, but not with high wheels. Which usually corresponds to the Group’s small car. It is understandable, therefore, because descending from a Peugeot 208 and climbing on a 2008 the thread of driving pleasure does not break.
2019 Peugeot 2008 Redesign Exterior & Interior
Although the last restyling wanted to make it look like a small SUV, with a solid front and the lower part of the body edged in plastic, the Peugeot 2008 maintains a slightly more street-like setting than its competitors. With a lower center of gravity and less ground clearance (16 cm). This is good for me: it means being able to be more confident in carrying it, even with that thread of rolling that suggests immediately not only how it takes the curves, but also how it will react if you mistreat it. Without, however, never fail reassuring answers and the feeling that electronics can not put a piece.
This does not absolutely mean giving up the typical benefits of city-SUVs. I always have full control of the road, visibility in all directions and a session a bit ‘higher than average. Which, among other things, helps a little to reach a compromise with the i-Cockpit, the small steering wheel coupling-raised instrumentation typical of the latest Peugeot models. But that not all motorists love.
The “flyer” is fully part of the factors that, in my opinion, make the 2019 Peugeot 2008 pleasant to drive in every situation, including the city. Together with the steering, light, calibrated so as not to tire without leaving empty. Suspensions, which are soft and comfortable on the bumpy without being yielding. And above all to the engine: one of the brightest 3 cylinders in circulation. Always ready, even at the bottom, and beautiful full in recovery, the 1.2 hp 100 hp Puretech turbo allows smooth gaits without paying too salty a bill for a small turbo gasoline in terms of consumption: you make the 13/14 km per liter in the combined cycle even with the automatic transmission, rather fluid in the passages.
The boot cooperates: it has a regular shape, a comfortable access and a load threshold at the height of the floor as well as among the lowest in the category (600 cm). The volume of 350 liters, however, is not a record in the category: the Citroen C3 Aircross, just to stay in the family, off the Peugeot 2008 not just with its 410 liters in five-seat configuration. However, enough space is required to load two beautiful suitcases and a stroller.
unlike other B-SUVs, does not have all-wheel drive. It takes its place – so to speak – the Grip Control , a part that regulates the electronics in order to simulate, through the adjustment of the torque and the use of the brakes, the work of a self-locking differential, making sure that the funds with poor adherence the wheel more in grip is more effective. The standard equipment also includes the M + S tires, which keep away from possible fines in the sections (and in the periods) in which there is an obligation to mount them or to have chains on board. But that also means a bit longer braking when we drive in the summer.
2019 Peugeot 2008 Release Date and Price
The Peugeot 2008 defends itself well even today, approaching the first generational change. The second series should come out next spring, renewed deeply in the look and interiors on the style of the Peugeot 3008. The base will always be shared with the 208, the new though (expected in the fall), for which it prefigures a variant electricity. Same destiny for the sister with high wheels?
