Recently previewed by a concept at the Paris Motor Show, the production model is based on the 208 and features familiar styling with sweptback headlights and a prominent grille.
The 2013 Peugeot 2008 has been caught on video.
Engine options remain unconfirmed, but choices could include a 1.2 VTi with 82 hp (61 kW / 83 PS), a 1.4 VTi with 95 hp (71 kW / 96 PS), a 1.6 VTi with 120 hp (89 kW / 122 PS) and a 1.6 THP with 156 hp (116 kW / 158 PS). There could also be a 1.4 HDi with 70 hp (52 kW / 71 PS) and a 1.6 e-HDi with 92 hp (69 kW / 93 PS).
The production model will likely be introduced next year and Peugeot has already confirmed it will be built in France, Brazil and China.
