PEUGEOT has enhanced its popular small SUV range with the introduction of a mid-level specification 2008 GT variant, with the new model to be priced at $38,990 (plus on-roads).
The Peugeot 2008 GT provides Australians with additional choice in the popular range and will attract potential buyers with its value proposition.
“A welcomed addition to the Peugeot 2008 range, the mid-level GT variant provides us with the opportunity to further expand upon the success of our small SUV in the Australian market,” Peugeot Australia general manager Kate Gillis said.
“At the time of launch we knew that the Peugeot 2008 would bring a fresh perspective to the competitive segment, particularly with its innovative design and impressive technology, and that remains true today,” she added.
“We’re delighted to be able to provide Australians with more choice when considering a premium small SUV, with the Peugeot 2008 range now offering three impressive variants.”
The GT joins a compelling Peugeot 2008 range built on the new and efficient Common Modular Platform (CMP) and features the latest-generation of Peugeot’s renowned 3D i-Cockpit complete with configurable head-up 3D instrument panel display.
