Operating on the PSA Group’s Common Modular Platform (CMP), it’s an extremely handsome-looking thing, with a design language this is certainly just like the newest 208 while the 508 – the previous additionally utilizes the CMP design.
Malaysia got the first-generation associated with 2008 long ago in 2014, which was later on followed up because of the facelifted variation in 2017. But the model is no much longer noted on Peugeot Malaysia’s authoritative website – Nasim is the only importer and distributor of brand here – with only two models, namely the 3008 and 5008, offered at this time.
But that may alter quickly, since the all-new 2008 has been spotted at a petrol place in Gurun, Kedah by paultan.org visitors Junaidi and Ku Adri. This kind of product is a right-hand drive product as opposed to a left-hand drive one, which implies the alternative of neighborhood set up.
