When Peugeot took the covers off their Urban Crossover Concept this week in Beijing, they neglected (or not) to mention it is a preview of a new crossover variant of the Peugeot 208 compact hatchback.

According to Automotive News Europe, the crossover will enter the hot new compact SUV segment when it goes on sale in Europe and Asia.

Following Peugeot's nomenclature designated for SUVs and MPVs, the vehicle will likely be named 2008 slotting just beneath the 3008 crossover.

The Urban Crossover Concept will have its European debut at the Paris Motor Show this September and hopefully in 2013 a production version will debut.
