2025 Peugeot 1008 SUV – In a market dominated by SUVs, and new models becoming expensive, automakers are trying to broaden their offerings of lower-cost options that are targeted toward emerging markets. In this way, Peugeot is long-rumored to be developing a smaller SUV, codenamed 1008, we’ve uncovered all the details we could get about the coming French model. After the demise of the city car, 1008 could be the next entry point into Peugeot’s lineup. 1008 could be the entry point into the bigger 3008, 2008, and the bigger 5008 SUV. Jean Francois Hubert from SB Medien of our group has provided us with this speculation sketch of how the vehicle could look, inspired by Peugeot’s current style of design.
2025 Peugeot 1008 SUV Redesign
The rendering of the artist shows an SUV that has a tiny bonnet, small dimensions along with a high-riding position, and a practical five-door body style. At the front, we can see the brand new Peugeot logo, and it features its own (covered) grille that’s like the grille we saw when we first saw the updated 3008/5008 as well the 308. The LED headlights have distinct extensions on the front bumper with the two-toned design and the fenders which have been toned are the final touches to the modern style. A close Peugeot has made with the ASUV industry was the HR-1 concept that was first introduced in 2010 but it didn’t result in a model that could be used in production. In 2017, and again in 2019 the company was seen testing prototypes of 1008, which were disguised to be jacked up versions of earlier generation 208. This suggests that the idea was in the process of development.
The most recent information about 1008 being published in French media suggests that it could be a part of the CMP design as well as Citroen New C3, a 3.98-meter (156.7 inches) SUV developed in India and South America. This same platform is also used for those who have the Peugeot 808 and those who own the Opel Corsa superminis. On the other hand, it’s an extended version that is used to support the more robust Peugeot 2008 model, Opel Mokka, and the DS 3 Crossback SUVs. Regarding dimensions, it is believed by experts that Peugeot 1008 could be anywhere between 4.00-4.15 meters (157.5-163.4 inches) in length. This is the same distance as too far away from the model of 2008 which measures 4.30 meters (169.3 inches) long. While it’s a tiny size, the big five-door model is likely to provide lots of practicality for this class that is designed for people seeking more options and space than they can receive from a typical city car.
1008 would likely be an idea driven by value and a value-driven idea, the best choice for the powertrains it uses is the tried and tested 1.2-liter Puretech three-cylinder engine, especially in the emerging markets. In Europe, Peugeot could unveil an electric version of the e-1008 to be the cheapest electric vehicle that could compete with lower-priced versions from other companies. In terms of positioning its market the market’s positioning, it’s feasible that Peugeot 1008 could be placed somewhere in between Toyota Aygo with X as well as Yaris Cross in Europe. Similar to that, it could be placed between other vehicles like the Hyundai Casper (A-SUV) as well as it could be placed alongside the Hyundai Bayon (B-SUV) in other markets and combine the best of both. Similar plans are anticipated by Skoda and Hyundai so there are plenty of possibilities within this segment.
