Innovative lifestyle technology has been introduced on new 2008 SUV to ensure maximum convenience.
Grip Control® is an adapted traction control system which responds to most terrains and weather conditions. It acts on the front wheels by adjusting wheel spin and torque to optimise traction in low-grip conditions.
Versatile and adaptable, this system has control built in. The Grip Control® dial located on the centre console lets you choose the appropriate mode for the surface you encounter. Coupled with 17” Alloy wheels and Mud & Snow tyres, it is now compatible with the EAT6 automatic gearbox. Grip Control® uses electronic components that are already installed in the car meaning that it adds no extra weight and therefore no excessive fuel consumption, unlike a traditional 4x4.
Grip Control® is optional from Active level, excluding 1.2L PureTech 82 & ETG S&S.
Grip Control® offers five driving modes:
- ESP Off
Designed to produce drivability and performance, the PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines in the new Peugeot 2008 SUV combine efficiency with cutting-edge technology resulting in greater driving pleasure with lower running costs.

Our BlueHDi diesel engines deliver high performance, impressive fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Every diesel version of the new 2008 SUV emits under 97g/km of CO2.
High performance, versatile and efficient PureTech and BlueHDi engines offer a responsive driving experience on new 2008 SUV without compromising on fun and enjoyment.
The compact steering wheel in the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is linked to a specific suspension system, which is adapted according to engine. The weight-optimised drivetrain combines simplicity and reactivity, offering the perfect balance of comfort and road holding to guarantee real driving pleasure.
Park Assist* makes life easier by assessing the size of parking space available to ensure that it fits the dimensions of your new 2008 SUV. Ultrasonic sensors and steering management take over to manoeuvre into a parallel parking space for you. Acceleration, braking, gear changes and use of the clutch in a manual transmission are left in your control. Exiting the parking space is just as easy – as Park Assist* will do this for you too!
*Optional on Allure level.
The reversing camera^ automatically activates when reverse gear is engaged and allows the driver to view the area behind the vehicle while the manoeuvre is taking place.
