Peugeot PH reveals all-new 2008 SUV at MIAS 2022

Peugeot is cooking up a delectable selection of French SUVs and MPVs at the 17th Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), running from April 7 to 10, 2022 at the World Trade Center. Taking center stage is the all-new 2008 SUV.

The 2008 has a cheerful countenance with prominent grille and triple LED daytime running lights. The rear taillight cluster has LED “claw effect” lights appropriate for the lion-badged brand. 17-inch Black Onyx and Diamond Cut alloy wheels complement the high ground clearance of the SUV. The 2008 is powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged engine with 130hp. It’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with “quick shift” technology.

Active driver assist features include blind spot monitoring, and active safety brake that uses a bumper-mounted radar and windshield-mounted camera.

The 2008 SUV features Peugeot’s 3D i-Cockpit cluster. Rather than a flat instrument display, the digital panel projects information in staggered layers to show relevant information more clearly to the driver. A 10-inch touchscreen controls the multimedia functions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on the 2008. The 2008 starts at P1,550,000.
