After its global reveal last year, the updated 2024 Peugeot 2008 has gone on sale in Australia. Launching with updated styling, new features, a new transmission for better fuel economy and an improved value equation, the updated 2008 range is priced from $39,990 plus on-road costs with modest price rises of up to $1,093 justified by new equipment across the range.

According to the company, Peugeot Australia is “pleased to introduce the facelifted 2008, a vehicle that exemplifies the brand’s commitment to technological innovation and alluring style.”

“Style has been at the heart of its success since the launch of the Peugeot 2008. The next step for the Peugeot design team was to further strengthen its character by scaling up its SUV status and making an alluring statement about its move upmarket.”

Centre of the updated Peugeot 2008 is revised exterior styling, including new lighting units, new bumper designs and new alloy wheels. Inside are new screens with an updated version of Peugeot’s ‘i-Cockpit’ digital driver’s display featuring, as well as a new 10-inch touchscreen with the company’s latest infotainment system from the 308 that now features live services as standard.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring are now standard equipment, while three of the pre-updated model’s USB-A ports are now the USB-C type, with one USB-A remaining for the rear. The GT also has a wireless phone charger.

Under the bonnet of the Peugeot 2008 range has also seen some change, with the 96kW/230Nm 1.2-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine on both models now mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which is two more gears than before. As a result, the 2008’s claimed fuel consumption has dropped from 6.5L/100km to 5.4L/100km on the combined cycle, while performance and drivability have also been improved thanks to shorter gear ratios.

As with the pre-updated 2008, the new model is covered by a five-year/unlimited km warranty with five years of roadside assistance. Five years/75,000km of servicing costs $2,392 ($478 per service), though buyers can choose a service pack before the first service for $1,700 ($340 per service).
