Specifically, these are the vertical light claws in the front, first introduced on the Peugeot 508. of three superimposed horizontal double slats that make the vehicle look wider.

“With the new 2008, PEUGEOT continues to strengthen its technological and feline identity. One of the key elements of the design work is the staging of the front end, which magnifies the 3-claw signature,” explains Peugeot Design Director Matthias Hossann. “It enhances the robust and muscular style that has made this SUV so successful in all markets and illustrates the move upmarket that the new 2008 is experiencing.”

Among other things, the interior is to be upgraded with a larger screen. It was previously seven and will now be ten inches. The exterior dimensions of the vehicle remain unchanged.

The small SUV, also available with a combustion engine, will be produced at the Vigo plant in Spain. It will be available starting this summer in the usual three variants: Active, Allure and GT.
