2025 Peugeot 1008 SUV Redesign
After the discontinued Peugeot 108 city car, the Peugeot 1008 may be the entry point. It will fit under the larger SUVs 2008, 3008, 5008 or 5008 SUVs. Jean Francois Hubert/SB Medien were our colleagues and sent this rendering to us. It is based on Peugeot’s current design language.
Artist’s rendering shows an SUV with a small roof, compact dimensions, and a high riding position. The vehicle also has five doors. The Peugeot emblem, which is now visible on the front, has a similar (covered-grille), design to the one seen on the facelifted 3008/5008 and the new 308. The LED signature headlights have extensions that reach the bumper. Modern aesthetics are completed by the two-tone treatment, toned fenders and the two-tone treatment. Peugeot’s closest competitor for the ASUV segment was actually the HR-1 Concept, which was launched in 2010. This model was never produced. The prototypes were disguised as the new generation 208 and 1008 by the company. This showed that the project was still in development.
According to French media, the latest rumors suggest that 1008 may share the CMP architecture with the Citroen New C3, a 3.98 meter (156.7 inch) long SUV. The same platform is used in Opel Corsa superminis, the Peugeot 208, Opel Corsa minis, and the Opel Corsa superminis. The larger Peugeot 2008, Opel Molka, and DS 3 Crossback SUVs are supported by a stretched version.
The Peugeot 1008 could measure between 4.00-4.15m (157.5-163.4inches in length). This is a far cry from 2008 which measured 4.30m (169.3inches). Despite its small footprint, the Peugeot 1008’s five-door body is tall and tall. This car is for those who require more space and power than they can get in a standard city car.
1008 is most likely a value-oriented vehicle. The 1.2-liter Puretech three-cylinder engine would be a great choice for powertrains. This engine is particularly suitable for emerging markets. As the most affordable electric vehicle, Peugeot could launch an e-1008 fully-electric model in Europe. This model would be competitive with cheaper offerings from other manufacturers. In terms of market positioning, the Peugeot 1008 could sit between the Toyota Aygo X and the Yaris Cross. It could position itself in other markets like the Hyundai Bayon (B-SUV) and the Hyundai Casper(ASUV). Skoda is expected to make a similar proposal. This segment has many opportunities.
