푸조의 간판 SUV 3008이 새로운 모습으로 거듭났다. 올 가을 열리는 2016 파리 모터쇼를 통해 정식 데뷔할 예정인 2세대 3008의 가장 큰 특징은 디자인 변화다.
푸조만의 개성을 지나치게 강조했던 1세대와 달리 2세대의 디자인은 푸조의 개성과 최신 유행을 적절하게 버무렸다. 덕분에 대중들에게 더 큰 사랑을 받을 것으로 보인다.
신세대 푸조를 의미하는 독특한 헤드램프와 테일램프로 개성을 살렸고 앞뒤 펜더 위에 캐릭터 라인을 넣어 강한 인상을 준다. C필러와 D필러 위에 블랙 커버를 붙여 마치가 루프가 위에 떠 있는 것 같은 인상을 주는 것도 특징이다. 렉서스 RX에서도 비슷한 느낌이었지만 3008은 그보다 좀 더 과감하다.
실내에선 새로운 i-콕핏 스타일이 눈에 띈다. 향후 푸조의 모든 모델에 적용될 컨셉으로 항공기에서 모티브를 얻어 운전자 중심으로 설계했다. 운전대 사이즈를 줄이고 그 위로 12.3인치 모니터를 두었고 같은 높이의 센터페시아엔 8.0인치 모니터를 별도로 마련했다. 센터페시아 중앙엔 토글 스위치가 자리하며 그 아래 기어 레버는 전자식으로 깔끔하게 마무리 지었다.
2세대 3008은 EMP2 플랫폼을 활용해 이전보다 무게를 100kg 가까이 줄였다. 차체는 좀 더 커졌다. 길이는 4,365mm에서 4,450mm로, 휠베이스는 2,613mm에서 2,693mm로 늘었다. 덕분에 실내 공간이 넉넉해졌고 트렁크는 520L를 기본으로 확보해 이전보다 90L나 더 쓸 수 있다.
엔진은 2종의 가솔린과 4종의 디젤 중 선택할 수 있다. 엔트리 모델엔 1.2L 130마력을 얹고 그 윗급엔 1.6L 터보 165마력을 사용한다. 디젤은 1.6L를 100마력과 120마력으로 쪼갰고 2.0L 디젤은 150마력과 180마력 버전으로 나뉜다. 변속기는 6단 수동과 6단 자동 중 하나를 선택할 수 있다.
푸조의 디자인은 언제나 파격적이죠. 이런 모습이 그동안은 별로 바람직하지 않다고 봤는데 이번 프랙탈 컨셉(PEUGEOT FRACTAL)을 보니 생각이 바뀌네요. 신선하면서도 멋스럽습니다. 푸조의 장기인 해치백에 오픈 모델과 쿠페의 디자인을 더한 모습이 아주 매력적입니다. 파워트레인은 전기모터와 리튬이온으로 이뤄진 친환경 유닛이라고 합니다.
First unveiled on the SR1 concept car in 2010, the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® has already won over more than 1.8 million customers since making its market debut on the 208 in 2012. With its innovative ergonomics, the cockpit provides instinctive driving and enhances the experience behind the wheel.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL is an electric urban coupé revealing a prospective design of the PEUGEOT i Cockpit® that explores another of the senses: following on from visual; sight, embodied by the head-up display, and touch; with the compact steering wheel and touchscreen, PEUGEOT FRACTAL showcases unprecedented attention to acoustics in automotive design. The result is a level of auditory perception that further enriches the driving experience.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL also features a sound signature created by sound designer Amon Tobin, which plays when the driver opens the doors using the smartwatch remote system. What follows is a unique electric coupé driving experience offering a wealth of sensory exploration.
The simultaneous launches of the ‘8’ range and the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® gave fresh impetus to the Brand. The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is a distinguishing feature of our vehicles. It transforms the driving experience, making it more instinctive, and amplifies driving sensations. Maxime Picat, PEUGEOT Brand Director
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® has garnered a real following among customers by offering a tangible improvement in driving pleasure. The PEUGEOT FRACTAL project explores new possibilities by further enhancing the cockpit experience through the use of sound to enrich information and enhance driving pleasure. Jérôme Micheron, PEUGEOT Strategy Director
PEUGEOT FRACTAL overview
FRACTAL is an electric urban coupé revealing a prospective design for the PEUGEOT i Cockpit® that explores the sense of hearing in addition to sight and touch. It makes driving even more instinctive, creating an unparalleled on-board experience.
The StelLab* is a PSA Peugeot Citroën research unit that has designed an innovative ‘9.1.2’** sound system combining a high-quality set-up that features tactile bass systems built into the back of each seat to make driving all the more instinctive, enriching information through the use of acoustics. This additional PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® feature is characterised by the ‘spatialisation’ and ‘dynamisation’ of sound.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL has an interior and exterior identity developed for the first time in partnership with sound designer Amon Tobin. In the city, the car is in sync with its environment.
The head-up display features a high-definition holographic screen and a 45-degree polycarbonate strip that delivers additional information and creates an impression of depth. This allows the driver to customise the way information is shown.
FRACTAL is an ideas incubator that explores new design and manufacturing processes. 3D-printed parts represent more than 80% of the interior trim surface. The anechoic materials were made through generative design - an incremental, stochastic process used to achieve the perfect component.
The 30kW/h lithium-ion battery powers the electric motors on the front and rear axles to provide a total output of 150kW/204hp and combined-cycle autonomy of up to 450km.
Variable ground clearance allows the vehicle to adapt to different types of terrain. The 7cm clearance for motorway driving improves aerodynamics to range and boost battery life. This can be increased to 11cm in urban environments, allowing the car to take speed humps and car park entrances in its stride.
* Established in 2010, the Science Technologies Exploratory Lean Laboratory (StelLab) is a scientific partnership management organisation comprising a network of PSA Peugeot Citroën experts and academics from countries around the world, including France, Switzerland, Poland, Spain, Brazil, the United States and China. Its main goal is to identify and develop new technologies and innovations for tomorrow's motor vehicles.
** ‘9.1.2’ is the numerical explanation for the effect of the number of speakers, bass-boxes and other sound systems contained within the vehicle.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL: an electric urban coupé
PEUGEOT FRACTAL negotiates city streets with ease, always in sync with its environment. The car is extremely compact, at 3.81m long and 1.77m wide, allowing it to weave through heavy traffic. The 19” Tall&Narrow wheels are positioned at either end of the car, with an overhang of just 0.52m front and back to maximise space utilisation and improve manoeuvrability.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL strikes a natural balance and features an electric drive train enabling a new architecture. All components are positioned with efficiency in mind. The lithium-ion batteries are housed in the central tunnel, which lowers the centre of gravity and improves weight distribution. They power two electric motors, each delivering 75kW/102hp, fitted to the front and rear axles. The drive train enhances the aerodynamics of the car, an improvement reflected in the smaller intakes at the front, with less air needed for cooling.
The FRACTAL's styling also embodies the car's ease in an urban environment, which is reflected in the dynamic lines that flow along the length of the smooth body. The Coupe Franche finish further enhances the sense of vitality with a sharp shift from intense pearly white to matt black at the door hinges. The upper body features a removable roof to turn the coupé into a cabriolet.
An LED strip above the vent at the rear shows the battery charge status via an equalizer-type display. These LEDs also act as rear lights when PEUGEOT FRACTAL is moving. The light signature in the front starts below the grille and flows over the headlamps. It also includes scrolling indicators.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL is perfectly at home in the city. The already-low noise levels achieved by the electric drive system are further improved by the Tall&Narrow tyres, with their narrow tread. To achieve the highest standards in acoustic performance, the wheels feature dihedral components to attenuate aerodynamic noise. Based on anechoic chambers, these additions reduce the intensity of sound waves, and therefore their noise levels, by causing them to bounce from one surface to another. This type of design is impossible to produce using conventional methods and was achieved through 3D printing.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL has a unique sound signature to keep it in sync with other road users, especially pedestrians and cyclists: any pedestrians about to step out into the road without looking will be alerted to the PEUGEOT FRACTAL's presence.
The concept also makes everyday life easier for the vehicle owner through the use of a Samsung Gear S smartwatch, which provides continuous information on the status of the battery, charging time, interior temperature and vehicle location. The watch gives the driver one-touch access to open the doors and customise interior features such as the air conditioning and sound system.
PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®: amplifying the senses
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® offers an unparalleled experience combining instinctive ergonomics with an unprecedented ambience. The choice of materials is inspired by auditoriums and recording studios: black oak decorates the instrument panel, door panels and bucket seats; copper trim reminiscent of audio connections runs through the interior, with 3D-printed anechoic motifs enhancing acoustic comfort. A 3D textile mesh covers the seats and is offset by white leather trim.
To ensure constant control, the driver's seat provides kinaesthetic feedback based on the FRACTAL's handling. The intuitive, compact steering wheel features a touchpad integrated into each of its two spokes. These thumb-controlled sensors control a range of FRACTAL’s functions and equipment.
The head-up display provides a holographic eye-level digital readout with a 45-degree polycarbonate strip delivering additional information. Drivers can customise the 12.3” HD digital display to suit individual preferences. The tilted polycarbonate strip gives added depth by showing information on a 7.7” AMOLED screen.
There are also toggle switches within easy reach on the arches on either side of the steering wheel. The right hand arch also houses the controls to activate the electric drive system. The 7.7” AMOLED touchscreen built into the centre console can be used to control all FRACTAL functions. Passengers in the rear also have a panel allowing them to adjust their immediate surroundings.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL is an ideas incubator that explores the use of 3D printing to create shapes that cannot be obtained through any other process. The resulting parts and components represent more than 80% of the interior surfaces and offer a combination of new styling and real functionality. The touchpad wires run through the spokes of the compact steering wheel.
The anechoic surfaces cover more than 15 square metres of the cabin interior and were produced by generative design. The computing power of today's machines makes it possible to explore all variations of shapes and structures for a given part. Generative design recreates the natural evolutionary process through the use of algorithms to create efficient shapes and develop the perfect part in each case. PEUGEOT FRACTAL uses just the right amount of material to ensure acoustic efficiency.
This is the first time that a concept car design has incorporated sound to such an extent. PEUGEOT FRACTAL also innovates by bringing materials first seen on the ONYX to the B segment. 3D printing and the use of generative design ensure the highest standards in efficiency. Matthias Hossann, Head of Concept Cars & Advanced Design at PEUGEOT
Innovative use of sound for an instinctive driving experience
This prospective PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® design gives hearing its rightful place alongside sight and touch, since people rely on all three of these senses to negotiate their immediate environment. FRACTAL features an innovative 9.1.2 sound system and acoustic design.
Drivers need to process an increasing amount of information within their vehicle, which demands more and more attention. The acoustic ergonomics enhance interaction with the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® and makes it easier to keep eyes on the road. The spatialisation of sound sources allows the driver to absorb and understand information more effectively and easily. Vincent Roussarie, New Acoustic Services specialist, PSA Peugeot CitroёnResearch & Development Division
StelLab is a PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN research unit that has designed an innovative 9.1.2 sound system and related software to provide a completely immersive experience. This digital sound technology simulates the human ear. Sound sources are created virtually and their location projected to enhance the information conveyed to the driver.
When the navigation system is in use, the synthesised voice appears to come from some distance in front of the car. As the vehicle travels along, the source moves toward the cabin and shifts to the side to which the car needs to turn. At intersections, it is positioned in close proximity, inside the car, to alert the driver to an immediate change of direction.
Spatialisation ensures that the sound matches the morphology and path of the vehicle. The system developed by StelLab configures the different sound sources separately for the FRACTAL's coupé and cabriolet modes.
To tap its full potential, the 9.1.2 installation features a 9.1 system comprising, in the front, three mid/high-range speakers, two tweeters, two woofers and a subwoofer, and, in the back, two mid-range speakers, two tweeters and a woofer. Leading French high-end audio specialist FOCAL also created the linen-fibre membrane for the speakers to render sound faithfully.
In addition, the PEUGEOT FRACTAL features a world premiere by incorporating a two-channel tactile bass system into the back of each seat. This revolutionary set-up is reflected in the name: 9.1.2.
Developed by SUBPAC, an American start-up, the tactile bass system offers a new sensory experience, which allows the bass to travel through a solid medium rather than through the air, meaning the sound waves reach the inner ear through the listener's body. This gives the seat occupant a more intense and exclusive bass experience, without causing unwanted interference in the surrounding environment.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL also infuses the electric drive train with its own acoustic identity, a world away from any associations with internal combustion engines. PEUGEOT brought in Brazilian sound designer Amon Tobin to rise to this specific challenge. The PEUGEOT FRACTAL's external sound signature keeps it in sync with other road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists, who are alerted to the car's presence by different sounds specific to the vehicle's status: acceleration, deceleration and cruising speed.
The interior conveys the PEUGEOT identity through an original audio design that gives ‘voice’ to functions such as the ignition, indicators, hazards, lights and various navigation features.
PEUGEOT FRACTAL is the fruit of collaboration between artists exploring new horizons. We worked with the designers to pool our resources of inspiration. The style is inspired by the sound, and my design draws on the PEUGEOT FRACTAL's looks and materials. Amon Tobin, musician and sound designer
The way in which spatialisation and the quality of this installation enhance the driving experience is evident in Amon Tobin's acoustic set-up. PEUGEOT FRACTAL is unique, the result of the successful collaboration between the artist and the PEUGEOT Design team.
A high-performance electric drive train
The electric drive train optimises aerodynamics and includes features unprecedented in the segment. The PEUGEOT FRACTAL's overall balance has been improved by installing the lithium-ion battery in the central tunnel. This reduces the vehicle's weight and lowers its centre of gravity.
The 30kW/h battery powers two 75kW/102hp electric motors, one on each axle, and offers a Combined Drive Cycle potential distance of 280miles.
The system manages power output according to driving conditions. The 150kW/204hp is distributed based on grip to optimise traction and energy recovery. In addition, to take into account weight transfer considerations, the electric motors have different gear ratios. During acceleration in the 0-62mile range, the rear motor kicks in first, with the front-axle motor gradually taking over beyond 62mph.
The four-wheel-drive FRACTAL has electric assisted steering to ensure outstanding efficiency in the city and stability at high speed. The air springs can function automatically or be controlled by the driver to adjust ground clearance between 7cm and 11cm: the lowest position optimises aerodynamics on the road and extends the cars’s autonomy; the highest clearance allows the car to negotiate city streets with ease and take speed humps and car park entrances in its stride.
Weighing in at just 1,000kg, PEUGEOT FRACTAL goes from 0 to 62mph in 6.8 seconds while offering a new sensory experience for the ears, and can cover 1,000metres from a standing start in 28.8 seconds.
In conclusion, PEUGEOT FRACTAL offers a glimpse of the future for the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® to create an even more instinctive, enjoyable driving experience. The new urban electric coupé finds fresh inspiration in sound to add hearing to the ongoing exploration of sight and touch.
콤팩트 모델에서 일가견이 있는 푸조가 이번 주 굿우드 페스티벌을 통해 308 GTi 핫해치를 공개했습니다. 이름에서 알 수 있듯이 고성능 모델이고 폭스바겐 골프 GTI, 포드 포커스 ST 등과 라이벌이죠. 1.6리터 터보로 라이벌보다 가장 작은 배기량의 엔진이지만 출력은 가장 높네요. 예로 250마력과 270마력 버전으로 나오는데 골프 GTI는 220마력과 230마력을 내고 포커스는 250마력정도 나오죠. 무게도 골프 GTI보다 100kg 이상 가볍다고 합니다. 물론 수치적인 것이 차의 모든 것을 말해주진 않기 때문에 골프보다 훌륭하다고 말할 순 없습니다. 다만 스펙만 보면 한번 기대해봐도 좋은 물건이라는 생각이네요 ^^

308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT - IN DETAIL
A stunning and purposeful exterior
From the very beginning, PEUGEOT knew that designing the most radical model in its range, then creating a top class driving experience for a particularly demanding set of enthusiastic-driving customers was a tall order. Rising to the challenge required a development team infused with a passion for performance and the obvious solution was to challenge the experts: PEUGEOT SPORT engineers, with a wealth of international expertise in the field of motor sport and top level racing.
The visual enhancements they have made to create the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT are obvious from every angle. Boasting exclusive styling front and rear, the car sits 11 millimetres lower to the ground than the standard 308. The nose features full LED headlamps, flanking a new black radiator grille with a horizontal chequered pattern and gloss-black finishing. The same motif is echoed on the air intake, which is surrounded by sequential LED indicators and a red detail strip (chrome on Ultimate Red cars). Below the bumper, two front spoilers boost aerodynamic performance.
In profile, the redesigned door sills hint at the car’s aggressive nature, while the sleek new rear design features a gloss-black section housing the twin exhaust pipes. The GTi signature of the car is clearly visible on the front wings and tailgate.
With a wider track of 1,570mm at the front and 1,554mm at the rear, the 308 GTi has been engineered to offer exceptional grip. GTi 250 versions are shod with 225/40 R18 92W Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres on ‘Diamant’ alloy wheels, while the GTi 270 versions feature the new 19-inch ‘Carbone’ light-weight alloy wheels and are equipped with Michelin Super Sport 235/35 R19 91Y tyres, which showcase the 380mm front discs, complete with solid red four-piston calipers and PEUGEOT SPORT signature.
A ‘Coupe Franche’ two-tone design is exclusive to the GTi 270 version – RRP £1,300 - and contrasts the vibrant new ‘Ultimate Red’ colour with Nera Black. The 308 GTi is also available in the new Ultimate Red, Pearlescent White, Magnetic Blue, Nera Black, Cumulus Grey as well as the standard colour, a non-metallic Hurricane Grey.
A dramatic new interior
The interior styling of the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT is in keeping with its performance-oriented exterior, and outstanding attention to detail is everywhere. Red stitching is used on the upholstery, door panels, gear lever and luxury floor mats. The door sill carries the GTi and PEUGEOT SPORT signature and is finished in aluminium. The same material is used on the pedals, foot rest and gear knob.
In the top-spec GTi 270 version, PEUGEOT SPORT ‘bucket’ seats are upholstered in Alcantara with red stitching providing cosseting lateral support to ensure the driver feels at one with the car at all times. The compact steering wheel offers strong grip and precision, with a full-grain leather design featuring the GTi logo at the bottom and a red centring mark at the top. It also leaves plenty of room to see the head-up display over it, housing the instrument panel read-outs with chequered backdrops, and the GTi greeting at its centre.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit instrument concept has been an integral aspect of the 308’s appeal and sales success, and continues to be more expressive on this range-topping car. The centrally-mounted, driver-facing touch-screen offers ergonomic convenience and state-of-the-art functionality, with the Redline theme adding a final touch of flair. The intuitive and user-friendly approach promotes safe, instinctive driving – crucial for a car that has performance in its genes.
For customers who want the ultimate high-octane experience, the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT is equipped as standard with the Driver Sport Pack. Pressing the Sport button on the centre console changes the display from white to red, shows additional information on the central read-out (power, torque, boost, lateral and longitudinal acceleration), enhances the engine’s throaty growl and changes accelerator pedal mapping for a more engaging driving experience.
“The PEUGEOT 308 provided an excellent base from which to develop a hot hatch, and our work mainly lay in optimising the original design to achieve engaging performance. But you have to get the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT on the road or on the circuit to really experience its true potential.”
Pierre Budar, PEUGEOT SPORT Project Manager
A state-of-the-art engine
The beating heart of the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT is the 1.6-litre THP S&S engine, available in outputs of 250hp (182kW) and 270hp (200kW). The unit is Euro 6-compliant, and the standard Stop&Start technology means both versions have CO2 emissions of just 139g/km. Combined Cycle
fuel economy is equally impressive at 47.1mpg and both versions develop high torque of 330Nm at just 1,900rpm and feature a manual six-speed manual transmission.
The more powerful 270hp version sets a new record for power-to-weight ratio in its segment, at just 4.46kg per unit of horsepower. It can reach 62mph (100 km/h) in just 6.0 seconds, compared to 6.2 seconds for the 308 GTi 250, while the top speed in both cars is electronically limited to 155mph.
The GTi 270 version has everything required to rein in the power, with race-developed 380mm ventilated discs at the front, mounted on aluminium hubs. Braking comes via four pistons (38mm and 41mm) in a fixed caliper and the rear discs have a diameter of 268mm.
Finely-tuned running gear ensures dynamic driving which inspires confidence. The pseudo-MacPherson strut in the front operates with precision, while the rear axle with its twist-beam system ensures a seamless pairing. These components also help reduce the weight of the 308 GTi, with a semi-hollow anti-roll bar and aluminium wishbones.
The entire vertical suspension system in the front is specific to the new 308 GTi, and including bespoke spring stiffness and shock absorber calibration. The anti-roll bar is more malleable to ensure a better match with the rear axle to enhance grip while cornering to increase road holding.
Exclusive to the GTi 270 version is an accomplished Torsen® limited-slip differential, incorporated into the transmission to improve cornering traction. By channelling the torque to the wheel with the highest grip, it makes it more able to accelerate faster out of bends than would normally be the case.
The engine runs on RON 95 or RON 98 fuel and injection pressure is 200bar. Maximum torque ranges from 1,900 to 5,000rpm, with power and torque perfectly regulated, even at higher rpm, due to the special ‘wastegate’ valve design.
The compression ratio is 9.2:1 due to state-of-the-art moving components, which include forged aluminium pistons of a competition-style design, strengthened conrods, polymer-enhanced bearings and reinforced bolts.
To ensure consistent performance, the pistons are cooled from below by a double oil spray system and the exhaust manifold is made of steel which can resist temperatures of up to 1,000°C. To tap the full potential of the engine, the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT is equipped with a supercharged air cooling system specially developed and installed below the front bumper.
The on-board electronics are in keeping with the GTi’s athletic temperament. The power steering is designed specifically to work in conjunction with the Torsen® technology.
The limited-slip differential also draws on new Traction Control guidelines to ensure optimal implementation. The sportier ESP design allows more latitude, with enhanced drift on bends. The ESP can be fully disconnected.
Advanced engineering at every turn
PEUGEOT SPORT developed the new 308 GTi driven by a simple design brief – to create a compact, safe, incisive car with athletic allure for the ultimate in driving pleasure. These standards have been applied to every aspect of the vehicle, from the engine and running gear to the brake systems and electronics.
The 308 GTi benefits from PEUGEOT’s relentless quest for weight savings right from the start of the 308 project. These include use of parent company PSA’s versatile and accomplished ‘EMP2’ platform, composite tailgate and use of high-tensile steel. This bid to lighten the vehicle weight has brought tangible results expressed in the performance of the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT.
Since the launch of the legendary 205 GTi, PEUGEOT has sold its sportier models to more than 800,000 satisfied customers. The cars are a roll-call of outstanding performance – the 309 GTi, 206 GTi, 306 GTi-6, etc. … up to the recent RCZ R, 208 GTi 30th, 208 ‘GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT’ and now the new 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT.
“As with competition models, in developing the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT, we targeted all aspects of the car, including weight, the efficiency of the chassis and brakes, the engine performance and the body-hugging seats. Those who buy the car are set for an intense experience with this new version developed by our entire team. It comes with a raft of high-end performance features as standard.” Bruno Famin, Director of PEUGEOT SPORT
308 GTi 250 by PEUGEOT SPORT is priced from £26,555 MRRP with 308 GTi 270 by PEUGEOT SPORT from £28,155 MRRP, both vehicles will be available to order soon.
2015 제네바 모터쇼를 통해 공식 데뷔한 푸조 208의 페이스리프트 모델입니다. 앞모습은 상당히 끌리는데 뒤는 임팩트가 좀 약하네요. 개성을 강조하게 위해 전용 페인팅과 액세서리를 추가했다고 합니다.
PEUGEOT’s reputation for striking exterior design is second to none. With the eagerly anticipated arrival of the new PEUGEOT 208, on sale from June, the brand is launching a world-first technology for a production vehicle – a unique ‘textured paint’ finish.
Exclusive to the popular supermini and further evidence of the sophisticated style now running through its entire PEUGEOT model range, distinctive textured paint adds a contemporary twist to the idea of customer choice and individual personalisation.
The textured paint is currently available in two colours, Ice Grey and Ice Silver. For even greater individuality, cars can be specified with an optional Lime Yellow or Menthol White personalisation pack. These are available for the exterior, interior or both.
On offer from launch in June, textured paint offers several benefits. First and foremost, it emphasises the striking, modern lines of the PEUGEOT 208, reinforcing its dynamism and elegant design.
Secondly, the texture – which is subtly granular to the touch – is more hard-wearing and easier to care for than conventional matt paint. It offers exceptional resistance to micro-scratching and doesn’t suffer through frequent car washing.
Thirdly, because it is applied by production robots at the advanced Poissy manufacturing plant in France, outstanding quality is guaranteed for the lifetime of the car.
PEUGEOT textured paint is a world-first on a volume production car and is backed by an international patent which is the result of almost four years of technical development. While the initial coats of anti-corrosion, primer and colour base remain the same as for conventional metallic paint, the innovation is in the composition and application of the lacquer. It features fine particles of silica and micro-balloons of polyamide; the former give the paint its matt appearance, toughness and granular properties, the latter creates its special texture.
Throughout the history of motoring, unique exterior finishes such as these have only been available on limited edition models, or as a very expensive premium hand-applied option. For the new PEUGEOT 208, it will cost exactly the same as pearlescent paint – at just £645.
The colour palette for the new PEUGEOT 208 comprises 13 shades that meet the growing customer demand for differentiation and exclusivity. They include:
2 textured colours (new Ice Grey and new Ice Silver)
1 distinctive ‘Coupe Franche’ design (textured Matt Black / Lacquered Red, exclusively available on the 208 ‘GTi by PEUGEOT Sport’)
Also making their debut on the new PEUGEOT 208 are two personalisation packs, an optional extra for both the exterior and interior of the car. They are factory-fitted options and available on Allure trim level and above. The Menthol White pack gives the 208 a touch of elegance, while the Lime Yellow pack is bright, modern and fun. Both feature various elements in the pack colour, including:
‘Equalizer’ grille with 3D-effect coloured markings
Gloss black grille surround
Gloss black front foglamp finishers with laser-engraved coloured line
Coloured front and rear PEUGEOT lettering
Nera Black door mirror shells and coloured side repeaters
The Menthol White and Lime Yellow packs can also be specified for the cabin interior, independent of the exterior pack chosen. Details include:
Sport seats in prestige leather effect trim and Oxford cloth, with coloured stitching
Armrests in the door panels with coloured stitching
Coloured front and rear door handles
Coloured blade below the instrument panel
Coloured dashboard moulding
Perforated full-grain leather steering wheel with coloured stitching
Gear lever gaiter with coloured stitching
Satin chrome air vent finishers
Passenger’s seat height adjustment
New PEUGEOT 208: enhanced desirability with strong attention to detail and high-quality
Revealed to the general public during the recent 85th Geneva Motor Show, the new PEUGEOT 208 goes on sale across Europe from June. Range enhancements are the result of a comprehensive programme of developments, which include new technology such as Active City Brake and a rear view camera, added for greater comfort and safety.
The 208 is available withfour new engines featuring class-leading PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel Euro 6-compliant technology, plus a new and impressive quick-changing EAT6 automatic gearbox. All are both economical and powerful.
The exterior design has become sleeker due to a larger grille design with new black and chrome two-tone lights that have a distinctive new LED light signature.
Inside is a new soft-touch dashboard material, white back-lighting for the instrument panel and blue LED light guides for versions equipped with a panoramic roof.
Following the lead of PEUGEOT award-winning 308 and 508, the new 208 range can now be specified in the new GT Line finish, a design influenced by the sporty looks of the performance GTi model.
푸조가 올해 가장 좋은 반응을 얻은 2008을 국내에 들여왔습니다. 널리 알려진 것처럼 208 베이스의 크로스오버 모델인데 보통의 SUV보단 차고가 낮고 해치백보단 좀 높습니다.
유럽에선 나오자마자 큰 인기를 얻어 생산량을 2배 정도 확대하기도 했다지요. 실제 판매량에서도 라이벌 QM3보다 훨씬 많다고 합니다. 유럽에 어울리는 B세그먼트 SUV로 수퍼 미니 SUV로 불리기도 합니다. QM3 이외에도 미니 컨트리맨, 피아트 500X, 오펠 모카(요건 국내 쉐보레 트랙스와 같은 모델) 등과 경쟁합니다.
당초 예상보단 국내 판매가도 잘 나온 듯 합니다. 트림별로 2,650만원, 2,950만원, 3,150만원이니까 3,990만원부터 시작하는 미니 컨트리맨보단 훨씬 싸고 2,250만원부터 시작하는 르노삼성 QM3보단 살짝 비쌉니다. 실제 유럽 판매가도 QM3보단 몇백 정도 더 비싸고 그동안의 수입차 가격을 생각하면 잘 나온 것 같네요.
반면 연비는 17.4㎞/ℓ(고속 19.2 ㎞/ℓ , 도심 16.2㎞/ℓ )로 18.1km/L인 3008보다 떨어집니다. 이는 아마도 국내에서 잘 못받은 듯 하네요. 실제로 달려보면 오히려 더 잘 나올 것 같습니다. 엔진과 변속기는 1.6 디젤과 MCP 한 종류인것도 아쉽습니다. 지나치게 디젤 취향인 국내 여건상 이것만 가져온 듯 한데 잘 팔리면 다양한 파워트레인을 함께 가져왔으면 합니다. 물론 판매의 절대 다수는 1.6 디젤이겠지만 국내에서 만날 수 있는 모델의 다양성을 확보한다는 의미에서요.
