Eco-friendly engines to drive Peugeot’s new compact crossover

Peugeot is to enter the growing compact crossover market later this year when the French car maker launches the 2008, a rival for the likes of the Nissan Juke and Opel/Vauxhall Mokka.

Peugeot says that the new crossover will benefit from the latest-generation of engines that will realize a “true breakthrough in terms of fuel economy”. Due to the technology of the e-HDi diesel and new three-cylinder petrol engines in the French car maker’s current powertrain portfolio, the 2008 will hit the market with a CO2 emissions rating starting from just 99g/km, setting a new emissions benchmark in this sector.

The new crossover is the first vehicle produced by Peugeot that was designed and developed simultaneously by several international markets. As a result, 2008 will be produced close to its key markets, in France (Mulhouse), in China (Wuhan) and in Brazil (Porto Real).

The new 2008 will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
