Interested in a Peugeot 2008?

    The updated Peugeot 2008 has arrived in Australia, with a fresh look and a more efficient powertrain.

    Revealed overseas in May 2023, the updated small crossover starts at $39,990 before on-road costs – up $1045 on last year’s model.

    It has arrived here in two trims – Allure and GT – with Peugeot confirming the related electric E-2008 will arrive “at a later date”.

    The switch from a six-speed to an eight-speed automatic transmission, previously limited in Australia to the more powerful but now defunct GT Sport, has resulted in reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

    These figures are down to 5.4L/100km and 123g/km from 6.5L/100km and 148g/km. Power and torque outputs are unchanged.

    Exterior revisions include a new grille with body-colour slats, “three-claw” LED daytime running lights, and “3D-effect” tail lights, as well as the brand’s new shield-style grille.

    There are black mirror caps, while all models ride on new 17-inch ‘Karakoy’ diamond-cut alloy wheels, though 18-inch alloys are optional on the GT.

    Inside, there’s now wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for the standard 10-inch touchscreen, which runs an upgraded infotainment system.

    The system also includes three games, including HangMan, if you want to kill some time while parked.

    There are now two USB-C outlets up front; the rear has one, alongside a single USB-A outlet.

    GT models get a passenger-side ambient lighting strip that’s linked to the drive mode, while Peugeot promises improved visibility from the standard reversing camera.

    Other new features include front parking sensors on the Allure, adaptive LED headlights on the GT, and a suite of Connected Services with a complimentary three-year subscription.
