Facts & Figures: 2022 Peugeot 2008 launched in Malaysia from RM126,753



Two years after its global reveal, Bermaz Auto Alliance, the new sole distributors of Peugeot vehicles in Malaysia has launched the all-new Peugeot 2008. It’s locally assembled at the Stellantis manufacturing plant in Gurun, Kedah and is available in a single variant only, from RM126,753.

The Peugeot 2008 will also be exported from Malaysia to neighbouring countries like Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Indonesia.

The new Peugeot 2008 retains the same 1.2-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine from before but now produces 20 hp and 25 Nm more.

It’s worth noting that the new Peugeot 2008 has endured 200,000 kilometres of testing in Malaysia’s climate and landscape.

EXTERIOR

Compared to the previous generation model, the all-new model comes with a longer body and wheelbase. As a result, boot space is now larger by 74 litres, at 434 litres.

  • Keyless entry with walk-away autolock

INTERIOR

The highlight of the 2008’s interior, aside from the funky choice of trims and upholstery, is the world-first Peugeot i-Cockpit 3D instrument cluster that projects vehicle information such as speed, like a hologram.

The 3D instrument cluster projects animated displays and varies according to importance or urgency, and according to Peugeot this helps improve reaction time by half a second.

  • Peugeot i-Cockpit
  • 7-inch infotainment display with reverse camera
  • Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

  • Six airbags
  • Hill-start assist
  • Front & rear parking sensors
