The Peugeot 2008 has been spotted testing by Autocar India for the first time somewhere around the PSA plant near Chennai. The Peugeot 2008 is based on the CMP1 platform. The CMP1 platform is the same modular architecture that will underpin the upcoming Citroen CC21 crossover.
However, the Peugeot 2008 is unlikely to be offered in India as the PSA Group will be focusing on the Citroen brand. Therefore, the car is likely to be testing components that would go into future Citroen offerings. The model that was spotted in India made its world debut last year and is one of the newer models from the French carmaker.
The engine that is being used by the Peugeot 2008 is expected to be a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine, which in the Peugeot produces either 98bhp, 127bhp or 152bhp of power. The car is expected to be offered with a five-speed manual gearbox. However, as we mentioned earlier that the Peugeot 2008 is unlikely to be offered in India, this engine might be tested for other cars such as the Citroen CC21.
In other related news, the French automaker, Citroen has officially revealed the launch date of its first model to the Indian market, the C5 Aircross. The company will launch the premium mid-size SUV on April 7, 2021, in the country. Ahead of its launch, pre-bookings for the C5 Aircross are being accepted in the country for a token amount of Rs 50,000.
Mechanically, the Citroen C5 Aircross will be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine. It produces a maximum of 175bhp and a peak torque of 400Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to an eight-speed torque-convertor automatic.
