Following the JPJ sighting a couple of weeks ago, our colleague Azree has managed to snap the Peugeot 2008 crossover being transported on the Federal Highway – according to him, the trailer proceeded to exit the highway near where all the car showrooms are located. This could mean we’re really not far away now.
Like the one we saw at JPJ, this one has 16-inch six-spoke alloys and is likely petrol-powered, since there’s no HDi badging below the 2008 tailgate badge. We guess its bonnet hides a 120 hp/160 Nm 1.6 litre VTi four-cylinder engine.
The Peugeot 2008 made its debut in February in Geneva. At 4,160 mm long, 1,740 mm wide and 1,550 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,540 mm, the 1,045-kg crossover is 96 mm taller and 200 mm longer than the 208 supermini on which it’s based, with a 25-mm higher ground clearance. The interior is largely similar to the 208′s, but the 2008 gets an interesting-looking aircraft-style handbrake.
