This is the new Peugeot 2008 crossover concept. It’s been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show and previews a production SUV that’s set to challenge the popular Nissan Juke.

The concept originally made its debut at the Paris Motor Show back in 2010 as the HR1 and was also displayed at the Beijing Motor Show as the Urban Crossover concept, but this version is likely to make the transition to a series production model broadly unchanged.

The 2008 will also be the first recipient of Peugeot’s all-new 1.2-litre turbocharged engine, which is expected to return fuel economy of almost 60mpg and will produce around 110bhp.

Production of the 2008 is expected to start late this year, before the Peugeot 2008 hits showrooms next summer.
