Cars are getting cooler these days as most of them pack an edgier and better design but not all of them come with the safety features that we need on a car. And if you’re looking for something smart and also safe then the Peugeot 2008 SUV should be on your list.
We used the Peugeot 2008 SUV for a week and we definitely loved it as their SUV is powerful, beautiful, and also packed with a lot of features. So what are the top features that I loved about the Peugeot 2008 SUV?
Sexy and sporty design
One of the things that you’ll definitely notice about the Peugeot 2008 SUV is its design. Whether you’re an SUV or sedan lover, you’ll definitely love the design of this car because it features the sleekness of an SUV but also a sporty design as well.
The front of the Peugeot 2008 SUV features a sporty look and combined with those LED lighting, the car looks more like an SUV than a hatchback compared to the previous generation. The current generation of Peugeot 2008 SUV features a more mature and cooler design.
While this one is smaller than its bigger brothers — the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, this car still does have enough legroom at the back and it does have large space for your items, whether we’re talking about boxes that need to be in the trunk or just some items that need to be on your side and on the glove box.
At the back of the Peugeot 2008 SUV, the three-claw LED rear tail lights are prevalent, and boy I do love looking at it as the red lights are bold and mean-looking with their black accent on the sides.
Lastly, there’s the 17” wheelbase that looks just right on the Peugeot 2008 SUV. It features a clean lines and bold design that looks pleasing to the eyes. Definitely adds to the premium, sporty, and sexy look of the car.
Amazing technology inside
I’m not the most hardcore guy when it comes to cars but the 1.2L PureTech Turbo Engine gives off pure power and amazing performance whether you’re driving along a steep hill or just driving in the city. The Peugeot 2008 SUV can handle it just fine. I was actually surprised with the power especially in Sport mode as I can get amazing acceleration with the car.
For the dashboard, there’s Peugeot’s 3D i-Cockpit that can give you all the information that you need with a minimal design. The amazing thing about it is you can customize it based on your needs and what you want to see on the dashboard. The 3D effect on it adds to the “wow” effect on the dashboard and beauty to the car. And of course, just like most cars, we have all the buttons and controls that we need on the steering wheel of the Peugeot 2008 SUV.
There’s a 7-inch display as well inside and yes, you can connect your smartphone whether that’s an Android or iOS. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so syncing your apps like Waze and Spotify would be just fine.
Everything that you need to control is in the 7-inch display. If you want to change the colors of the Cockpit, turn on the mood lighting inside the car, or whatever you want to control then it’s there. It’s an all-in-one display and what I like about it is that it’s angled to the driver’s side so the driver has full control and the display doesn’t have too much glare even when there’s bright and direct sunlight outside.
Safety is paramount when buying cars and Peugeot has taken note of every safety feature that you need from the car. Of course, there’s the rear camera so you can easily and safely park your car anytime but that’s just the start. The Peugeot 2008 SUV also features Active Blind Spot detection which basically warns you in the side mirror with a yellow and it warns you that there’s a car in your blind spot so you will be safe when you’re changing lanes.
Two other features that keep you in focus and in the lane are Active Lane Keep Assistance and also Advanced Driver Attention warning. While I think the Active Lane Keep Assistance is too intrusive and too tight when driving along the expressway, it can be turned off. In my driving experience of the Peugeot 2008 SUV, I was also able to experience an automatic full stop of the car when there was a pedestrian that suddenly cross the road.
The Peugeot 2008 SUV not only packs a sporty and cool design but it also packs a lot of power inside and it’s also very comfortable to ride on and to use. There are a lot of safety features as well that you would definitely be useful and keep you safe while on the road.
I know there are a lot of car manufacturers out there and more popular ones with a really wide aftersales but the Peugeot deserves to be in your list as this one comes with a stylish and unique design that can definitely “wow” anyone and combined with its power and comfortability, you’ll definitely love the Peugeot 2008 SUV.
