The head-up instrument panel allows driver information to be viewed above, rather than through, the steering wheel and is therefore accessed without taking your eyes off the road. In addition, the large multifunction colour touchscreen places all the functionality at your fingertips.
Sophistication and Luxury
The new 2008 SUV has a sophisticated and sleek interior with a seductively high level of finish.
The lighting ambience has been created with particular care. The inside of the new 2008 SUV is bathed in natural light thanks to the generous amount of glass featured in the car’s design. This adds to a sense of freedom and space enjoyed by the driver and their passengers.
The finely crafted décor works in harmony with ultramodern mood lighting to create a refined and elegant atmosphere. Chic and innovative, the Peugeot LED Track* provides ambient lighting from the laser cut headlining while the panoramic glass roof** is equipped with high-tech light guides. The head-up instrument panel features LED dial surrounds* which come on automatically as soon as the side lights are switched on, adding an extra touch of luxury to the interior lighting ambience.
An Eye for Detail
The modern, clean design of the new 2008 SUV’s interior blends perfectly with its exterior. Each detail has been fine-tuned and all the materials used are luxurious to the touch. A simple demonstration of this meticulous craftsmanship is provided by the fluid, graphic lines of the dashboard.
Space and Convenience
Spacious and practical, the boot has a low loading height of 60cm and the 1/3-2/3 modular rear seats allow you to convert the boot volume from 410 litres to 1400 litres.
Pressing the button at the top of the backrest is enough to tilt the back allowing the seats to fold down automatically into a completely flat floor.
Grip Control® is an adapted traction control system which responds to most terrains and weather conditions. It acts on the front wheels by adjusting wheel spin and torque to optimise traction in low-grip conditions.
Versatile and adaptable, this system has control built in. The Grip Control® dial located on the centre console lets you choose the appropriate mode for the surface you encounter. Coupled with 17” Alloy wheels and Mud & Snow tyres, it is now compatible with the EAT6 automatic gearbox. Grip Control® uses electronic components that are already installed in the car meaning that it adds no extra weight and therefore no excessive fuel consumption, unlike a traditional 4×4.
Grip Control® offers five driving modes:
- ESP Off

The compact steering wheel in the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is linked to a specific suspension system, which is adapted according to engine. The weight-optimised drivetrain combines simplicity and reactivity, offering the perfect balance of comfort and road holding to guarantee real driving pleasure.
Park Assist* makes life easier by assessing the size of parking space available to ensure that it fits the dimensions of your new 2008 SUV. Ultrasonic sensors and steering management take over to manoeuvre into a parallel parking space for you. Acceleration, braking, gear changes and use of the clutch in a manual transmission are left in your control. Exiting the parking space is just as easy – as Park Assist* will do this for you too!
Peugeot Mirror Screen® brings you CarPlay® functionality, providing voice activation for the driver, meaning compatible and safe applications, such as Google Maps and call features can be activated and used without removing your hands from the wheel.
The reversing camera* automatically activates when reverse gear is engaged and allows the driver to view the area behind the vehicle while the manoeuvre is taking place.
Active City Brake
Active City Brake* is a new technology which makes it possible to avoid an accident or reduce its seriousness if the driver fails to react. It works in urban conditions, at speeds of less than 20 mph. A short range sensor is fitted to the top of the windscreen and can detect other vehicles that are driving in the same direction or stationary. This will automatically trigger an emergency brake to stop the vehicle and avoid a collision entirely, or limit the consequences of an accident by reducing the speed of impact.
Electronic Stability Control
All versions of new 2008 SUV have a high level of active safety and are equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Control) as standard. This comprises Traction Control (ASR), Stability Control (CDS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Anti-wheel lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).
ESP is combined with Hill Assist*, which briefly immobilises the vehicle, giving you time to move your foot from brake to accelerator when starting the car on a slope.
The new 2008 SUV has an ultra-light body structure designed to absorb as much energy as possible from any impact. This minimises the consequences for passengers, pedestrians and vehicles.
As well as enhancing safety, this robust yet lightweight structure gives you livelier handling, optimised fuel consumption and greater driving pleasure.
The new 2008 SUV includes six airbags as standard, offering extra protection for you and your passengers if you’re involved in an accident.
- Two front airbags to protect the head and thorax of the driver and front passenger in the event of a frontal impact.
- Two front side airbags to protect the driver and front passenger in the event of a side impact.
- Two front and rear curtain airbags to protect the heads of the front and rear occupants.
In addition, front passenger seat airbag deactivation is available across the new 2008 SUV range, so that baby can travel in the front seat.
ISOFIX child seat anchor points
Keep your little ones as safe as possible in the back of the new 2008 SUV, where there are two three-point ISOFIX fittings for child seats.
Two of the anchor points are at the back of the seat cushion and then thirds is in the back seat panel.
Cornering Assist Fog Lights*
In low beam or high beam, this function allows the front fog lights to illuminate the inside of a bend when the vehicle speed is below 25 mph. This gives you extra visibility when driving in town, on winding country roads, at junctions or when you are parking.
Peugeot Connect SOS
Peugeot Connect SOS* is technology that could prove vital in an emergency.
- Automatic emergency call: if the airbags inflate or the seat belt pre-tensioners are triggered, the vehicle automatically makes an emergency call on behalf of the driver. Peugeot Connect SOS* then locates the vehicle, establishes telephone communication with its occupants and arranges for the appropriate emergency service to be dispatched.
- Manual emergency call: whether the victim or the witness of an emergency situation, the driver can call Peugeot Connect SOS* quickly by pressing the SOS button located on the dashboard (and holding for 3 seconds).
