2017 Peugeot 2008 Australian pricing announced


Australian pricing and specifications have been announced for the facelifted 2017 Peugeot 2008 range. Now solely available with the familiar 1.2-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine and six-speed Aisin automatic transmission combo from both the 208 and 308, the 2008 does away with the breathless 1.6-litre petrol and manual-only 1.6-litre turbo diesel options that were previously available.


The 1.2-litre turbo produces 81kW of power and 205Nm of torque, slightly less power (81 vs 88kW) but significantly more torque (205 vs 160Nm) than the 1.6-litre it replaces. It’s also significantly more fuel efficient, with the claimed combined fuel economy rating of 4.8L/100km making the refreshed 2008 a whole 26% more fuel efficient.

The 2008 has also undergone some subtle styling changes, featuring a sharp new front end with the new Peugeot Lion at its centre, as well as refreshed alloy wheels and darker headlight clusters. At the rear, the tailights have a new 3D effect that feature ‘lion claws’, according to Peugeot.

Aside from the entry model Active, which increases by $1,000, prices remain steady on the 2008 while specification has been boosted. Three well-equipped models are offer. The entry-level Active starts from $26,490 comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, 6 airbags, a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink functionality, a rear view camera with rear parking sensors, cruise control with a speed limiter, tyre pressure monitoring and a leather steering wheel.

In order to gain low-speed autonomous emergency braking (AEB), however, you have to step up to the mid-range $30,990 Allure: disappointingly, it’s not available on the Active. Spend the extra $4,500, though and you’re also rewarded with significantly more equipment. Automatic headlights and wipers, satellite navigation, 17-inch alloy wheels, semi-automatic parking, front parking sensors and dual-zone climate control all come as standard. The top-spec $32,990 GT-Line is more of a cosmetic upgrade, gaining sportier exterior styling with black highlights, machine-faced alloy wheels and red interior highlights like stitching and dial details.


A short options list keeps things simple. Leather tim is optional on the Allure and GT-Line for $2,200; metallic paint is $990 on all models, satellite navigation is available on the Active for $1,500 and a panoramic glass roof is available on the Allure and GT-Line for $1,000.

The 2017 Peugeot 2008 is available from Peugeot dealerships now.
