The 2024 Peugeot 2008 has been introduced to the Australian market, featuring updates in design, mechanics, and technology, accompanied by a price increase of around $1,000.

The lineup consists of two petrol models, the Allure and GT, which now include an eight-speed automatic transmission aimed at enhancing fuel efficiency, a change from the previous six-speed configuration.

An electric version, the e-2008, is expected to join the lineup later within the third quarter of 2024, details of which are pending confirmation by Peugeot Australia.

Since its introduction to the Australian market in July 2020, the Peugeot 2008, which has received a five-star ANCAP rating from 2019, has undergone several lineup adjustments, including the introduction and subsequent removal of a mid-spec GT Sport variant.

For the 2024 model year, both the Allure and GT models are equipped with a 1.2L engine paired with the new eight-speed transmission.

Exterior updates for the 2024 models include new 17-inch ‘Karakoy’ diamond-cut alloy wheels and design changes such as the updated Peugeot logo, a new grille, revised LED headlights, and an updated rear light design featuring six horizontal LED tail-lights.

The starting prices before on-road costs are set at $39,990 for the Allure and $44,490 for the GT.

Interior enhancements across both models include a new high-definition 10-inch centre infotainment screen and digital instrument cluster, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity now standard.

The GT model additionally offers wireless smartphone charging and ambient interior lighting among its upgraded features.

Safety and convenience updates include the addition of front parking sensors for the Allure model, while the GT model receives Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go functionality as a standard feature.

The vehicles maintain the 1.2L three-cylinder turbo engine, with the new transmission setup contributing to an improved fuel consumption rate of 5.4L/100km combined.

Peugeot provides a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty and roadside assistance for the 2008 model, along with capped price servicing and optional pre-paid service plans.

Now available in showrooms, the 2024 Peugeot 2008 presents updates in design and technology against a backdrop of a modest price increase.
