The PEUGEOT 2008 SUV offers agile and efficient performance thanks to its award-winning PureTech turbo engine in combination with the advanced EAT6 six-speed automatic transmission.
The new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV features our award winning PureTech three-cylinder turbo petrol engine guaranteeing performance and economy. It produces 81kW of power, and 205Nm of torque at a low 1500rpm.
Compared with a similar four-cylinder engine, the Puretech Engine is 12kg lighter. It also owes its high-level of performance to optimised combustion and limited internal friction. Despite offering remarkable performance, this engine is also very economical, with up to 25 per cent lower fuel consumption (4.8L/100km highway cyclei) and CO2 emissions (110g/km) compared to a four-cylinder engine of the same power.
No wonder it’s been awarded International Engine of the Year in its class (1.0L to 1.4L) in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018!
The 2008 SUV now features the EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox as standard, optimising fuel consumption while heightening your driving sensations. Also included is Quickshift technology, which delivers frequent gear changes swiftly and fluently.
Meanwhile, its yield (energy efficiency) virtually equals that of a manual gearbox thanks to a reduction in internal friction and the addition of converters that lock whenever required to avoid slippage.
All of which means the difference in emissions between this and a manual gearbox has been cut down to just 7 g/km of CO2, making the 2008 SUV an exceptionally fine performer in terms of both driving enjoyment and fuel consumption.
Fast, efficient and silent, Stop & Start technology allows the engine to be put on "standby" just before and after a stationary period. The result is improved control of fuel consumption and a reduction in CO2. emissions.
When the brake pedal is released, reignition occurs instantly, with no noise or vibrations.
