Peugeot’s two latest SUVs, the 3008 and the 5008, were both warmly welcomed by the auto community, which might be the trigger for the French company to introduce the two models’ baby brother, the 2008. Due to be revealed in the autumn of 2019, the Peugeot 2008 will carry the brand’s newest chassis technology developed by its parent firm, the PSA, and its Chinese partner, DongFeng.

The new chassis platform is called the CMP or the Compact Modular Platform, which was specifically designed for smaller cars. It will make its new debut on the new 208, which we can expect at the Geneva Motor Show next year.

The new platform will make the 2008 SUV slightly longer but lighter than the outgoing model. The CMP chassis weighs around 40 kilograms less than the PF1 setup that is used in the existing 208 and 2008 lineups.

The company has been working hard to ensure that there are consistency and sophistication in their designs, so we can expect the new 2008 to be similar in looks with the new 208. That would, of course, bring a lot of changes and updates to the bigger 3008.

Inside the cabin, more premium materials will be used for that topnotch experience. There should be a totally redesigned dashboard featuring the latest evolutions in Peugeot’s i-Cockpit instrument panel. These changes will extend to the fully digital display across the range, specifically in regions like the UK where Peugeot is being considered at the “upper end of mainstream.”

As for the engine lineup, the 2008 should be using an updated form of the current 1.2-liter PureTech petrol motor that can deliver somewhere from 85 to 130 horsepower. Aside from the petrol engines, the 2008 should get the PSA’s new-generation 1.5-liter BlueHDi diesel engines, an eight-speed automatic for high-end variants, and a standard six-speed manual.
