Not so long ago DriveWrite tested the excellent Peugeot 2008 (here). Apparently, the long-established French company have sold over a quarter of a million 2008’s, produced since its launch mid-year in 2013. Sales in the UK alone currently exceed 30,000 units. Following on from the success of this model, a new special edition is announced for 2015 – the 2008 Urban Cross.
Based on the Active badge level, but benefiting from an enhanced specification, the 2008 Urban Cross is available with either the 1.2L PureTech 110hp Stop/Start with 108g/km of CO² or the 1.6L BlueHDi 100hp Stop/Start emitting just 95g/km of the nasty stuff.
The main focus of the Peugeot 2008 Urban Cross is the strong exterior and interior styling, noticeably with a new and exclusive metallic ‘Emerald’ paint colour. The vehicle also features 17” alloy wheels and Grip Control as standard, along with rear Parking Aid and electric, heated and folding door mirrors. Black door mirrors also add to the distinctive exterior styling.
The Urban Cross premium trim, with emerald stitching, is complemented by the leather steering wheel and gear knob, with emerald contrast stitching to further enhance the appeal of the interior. You can order it now priced from £16,495 OTR MRRP.
