The 2008 is based on Peugeot 208. It is 4160mm long, which is 25mm longer than the Juke. The exterior reminds to 208 a lot. The front and rear lights are identical as well as the front grille. The difference is the ride-height as well as the driving position. Both are raised in order to get better view, comfort and more safety. An innovation is a complete body kit including new bumpers and side skirts.
The 2008 rolls 17” wheels fitted with low-profile tires. It is interesting that the car won’t get AWD, so this may hurt the off-road capabilities. Still, there will be a “Grip Control” traction control, which is the same one found in the larger 3008.
The engine range will include a new three-cylinder 1.2 liter turbocharged petrol. The diesel variants are two – a 1.4 liter HDI and a 1.6 liter HDI. The emissions will be below 100 g/km of CO2.
