The first official launch in 2022 of any car has come in the shape of Peugeot 2008. The new crossover SUV has made some serious waves before its launch and had been spotted a handful of times before its official launch. The prices and specs of the new car are as follows:
Peugeot 2008 Active
|Peugeot 2008 Allure||
Basic specs of Peugeot 2008 are something like this. It comes with a 1.2L turbocharged engine that makes 130 bhp and is only available with a 6-speed gearbox.
Other than that, the Allure is the high end variant and comes with things like automatic lighting, rain sensors, chrome front grille, panoramic sunroof, better seat fabric, 6 speakers, better steering multimedia controls, and more compared to the basic Active variant. The new 2008 will be available in Orange Fusion, Clear White, Cherry Black, and Sparkling Silver colours.
The booking of the 2008 is open if you are interested in becoming one of the first owners of the new car in Pakistan. There 8 physical showrooms of Peugeot (2 in both Lahore and Karachi, and one each in Islamabad, Faisalabad, Sialkot, and Gujranwala), if you are living in any other city, you can book the car on Peugeot Pakistan’s official website.
It would not be wrong to say that people were not expecting such a hefty price tag. This is Sportage territory and considering both cars are being made locally by Lucky Motor, there might be some competition between their own brands. And there is also the fact that it is significantly smaller than Sportage in size. The 2008 competes with cars like the MG ZS and even with Stonic to some extent. But the price is as high as Lucky Motor’s star player, the Kia Sportage.
How well will the new Peugeot 2008 do in Pakistan? Only time will tell.
