Peugeot 2008 Soft-Roader Concept Hits at Next Year's Production Model

Besides the 260bhp RCZ R and the Onyx Supercar and Super Scooter models, Peugeot is also displaying a fourth concept model at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the 2008, which hints at the firm’s Nissan Juke rival that will be presented next year.

The 2008 is a follow up to the ‘Urban Crossover Concept’ revealed in Beijing earlier this year with a more vibrant color scheme, but other than that, the two models are identical.

At 4.14m long and 1.74m wide, the Peugeot 2008 is 5mm longer and 25mm narrower than Nissan’s B-segment crossover.

Under its bonnet, the 2008 Concept debuts the PSA Peugeot-Citroen Group’s newly developed 3-cylinder petrol engine series. In this application, the 1.2-liter unit is equipped with a turbocharged and direct-injection technology to produce a power output of 110-horses.

The French carmaker states that the new engine combines a high output for its displacement with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Testing of the production version of the 2008 has already began with our spies having nabbed the first camouflaged prototypes earlier this summer.
