Peugeot 2008 crossover spotted testing in India

The 2008 is likely to be testing components that would go into future Citroen offerings.

The Peugeot 2008 has been spotted testing in India for the first time. The crossover was spotted somewhere around the PSA plant near Chennai.

The Peugeot 2008 is based on the CMP1 platform - the same modular architecture that will underpin the upcoming Citroen CC21 crossover. The 2008 measures 4.3 meters in length and has a wheelbase of 2.5 meters.

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.

It is believed that the 2008 could be testing the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine that would power the CC21. This engine comes in three states of tune ranging from 98 BHP to 151 BHP.
