Peugeot is preparing a mid-size SUV for the Chinese market which will receive the "6008" nameplate.

At the beginning of October we heard rumors about a Peugeot 6008 concept programmed to make an appearance at next year's Beijing Motor Show and it seems the car in question can be seen in this photo which was probably created for a presentation. The concept will receive a production version in 2015 which will ride on PSA's new EMP2 architecture and will be built in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture.

The 2015 Peugeot 6008 will be offered as standard with a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine outputting 163 bhp (121 kW) and an optional newly developed V6 created specifically for Asian markets. The base model will start at around 200,000 yuan (33,000 USD / 24,000 EUR / 20,100 GBP) while the range-topping version will reach about 250,000 yuan (49,400 USD / 36,000 EUR / 30,000 GBP).
