Today’s vehicle buying markets are starting to favour the compact crossover more and more. The increased space, a higher driving position and the larger more commanding size on the roads, matched with the feel of a smaller car is becoming something more and more of us are looking towards.
Not to be outdone by consumer preference, Peugeot certainly seem to have upped their game with their latest 2008 range which ticks all the above boxes – particularly the models that come with the splendid Allure trim level. If you’re still not convinced, read on to learn more about this masterclass in French manufacturing.
Choose your Engines!
The Allure range offers the biggest choice of engines; there’s a number of variations on the 1.2-litre PureTech petrol models, which as you may have guessed have a surprising amount of gusto. The other options are the BlueHDi diesel versions, which offer a great mix of power and economy. Either of these come with the benefit of low CO2 emissions and subsequent free road tax.
A Sleek Design
From a visual perspective, you’re sure to be amazed by the cool stylings of the chassis. The elongated front makes the grille all the more imposing, yet the rest of the body smartly tapers back to give the look of a compact.
Inside though is even better. The cabin can comfortably seat a family of five with lots of room left over for luggage or a full shop. You can of course choose the van model or look into upgrading if you want to have any more space in the boot.
An Alluring Array of Conveniences
As aforementioned, it’s the Allure trim level that can really set this car apart from the rest. Everything found in the Active trim is included but you can also enjoy useful driving assists like grip control, cornering assist fog lights and 17” alloy wheels. These can take the hassle out of those long journeys and afford you added comfort when in the driving seat.
There’s also lots to offer in terms of in-car conveniences, whether it’s the touchscreen control centre, the automatic features with lights, wipers and windows, or the air-con, you’re sure to be blown away.
All in all then, whether you’re after a new family vehicle, or you just want something with a little more presence for city driving, with the new Peugeot 2008 Allure, you won’t go wrong.
