Peugeot considering 2008 RX three-door crossover

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 19, 2014

We already know that the Peugeot 2008 made quite a buzz on the market and the French carmaker saw some impressive sales. As a result, Peugeot is considering a three-door version of the 2008 crossover.

If built, the new crossover will sit below the 2008 and will use a shortened version of the crossover’s platform, which means a total length of around 3,900 mm or 300 mm shorter than the current 2008.

Dubbed 2008 RX, the new Peugeot is expected to use the same engines found on the 2008. This means that we will find a 1.2-liter VTi engine that delivers 81 bhp and a bigger 1.6-liter engine that generates 118 bhp.

Diesel engines will also be available with outputs that range from 67 bhp to 113 bhp. A turbocharged three-cylinder engine will also be available delivering 109 bhp or 128 bhp. According to AutoExpress, Peugeot 2008 RX is expected to go on sale in summer 2016 and will be cheaper than the 2008.
