By CARSIFU | 12 January 2020

SINGAPORE: Peugeot in Singapore has pulled the covers off its latest second-generation 2008 compact crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV).

Seen here in left-hand drive guise, the 2008 is built on the French carmaker's new Common Modular Platform and sports the GT Line badge which means it is powered by a 1.2-litre (1,199cc) turbocharged three-cylinder engine that sips from a 44-litre fuel tank.

Power has been rated at 155hp at 5,500rpm and 240Nm of torque from 1,750rpm - all of which gets managed by an eight-speed automatic for the front wheels, and can accelerate from 0 to 100kph in 8.2 seconds before topping out at 208kph.

The 2008 GT Line sits on 18-inch wheels with 215/55 Michelin Primacy 4 tyres that obscure the disc brakes from vision and subsequently hides the front MacPherson struts and rear multi-link suspension.

This five-door compact SUV has a 2,558mm wheelbase and dimensionally comes in at 4,118mm-long, 1,802mm-wide and 1,534mm-tall - giving it enough space for five and an expandable 434-litre boot when the rear seats are folded down.

Some notable fixtures and fittings include LEDs for the French carmaker's headlights, tri-Claw daytime running lights and rear light cluster while an i-Cockpit 3D instrument cluster, compact multi-function steering wheel and high-definition touchscreen are found within the driver-centric cabin with Black Diamond headliner and sunroof.
