    All 2021 Peugeot 2008 models use a turbocharged 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine.

    Both models are front-wheel drive, though the Allure and GT use a six-speed automatic while the GT Sport gets and eight-speed auto – both sourced from Aisin.

    Fuel Consumption

    The 2021 Peugeot 2008 uses 6.5L/100km on the combined cycle in the Allure and GT and 6.1L/100km in the GT Sport.

    Both versions of the 1.2-litre turbo petrol are Euro 6 compliant.

    Those figures put the 2008 at the upper end of the small SUV class for practicality.
