 Therefore, the development of the update was done by the local unit, which made a deep adaptation to local requests. In contrast to the european version, the model received a higher bumper with an increased arrival angle, while the feed remained the same. But the main change in the cabin, where with the basic configuration installed multimedia system with a 7-inch display.

 Significant differences in the motor range. So, for the local market, Peugeot 2008 is equipped with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of up to 115 horsepower, as well as a turbocharged engine of 1.6 THP with a capacity of up to 166 power. Both engines are adapted for use of gasoline, and ethanol distributed in the local market. Also, the crossover has lost kits with a mechanical transmission.
