2016 Peugeot 6008 Review

Despite the fact Peugeot was losing a lot of sales back in 2008, the managed to recover quite nicely and most of their current cars sell just as good as those of their competitors. However, they still need a lot of work, especially with their crossover class which is a bit too cluttered and not that well structured. In order to change that, they are going to make their crossovers under the x008 brand which means that the current 5008 MPV is actually going to be discontinued and replaced with the 2016 Peugeot 6008, a medium size crossover that will offer seven seats as standard as well as more powerful engines than its predecessor.

2016 Peugeot 6008 Exterior Design

In terms of exterior design, the French company only released minor details about the 2016 Peugeot 6008 such as the size or the seating layout. The car will be just as long and tall as the C4 Grand Picasso and it will share the same wheelbase but it will be a bit wider than it in order to accommodate the wider wheels and tires.

The front end is likely going to share a lot of design cues with the 308 and the 408 while at the back we may see an all new design that will likely be used on their other crossovers as well.

Interior of the new Peugeot 6008

Inside the cabin, the 6008 will be quite impressive for its price and very spacious as well. As standard it will come with seven seats and there might be a six seats version available as well for certain markets.

The design of the dashboard and the interior in general will be similar to that of the 308 or even the 2008 but the materials will be tuned up a notch.

Peugeot 6008 2016 Engine

Engine wise, the 2016 Peugeot 6008 should come on the market with three different types of engines. A 1.6 petrol engine will be the base unit which will provide 165, 205 or 270 horsepower and up to 350 N*m of torque. A 2 liter diesel offering 150, 180 or 210 horsepower and up to 400 N*m of torque is also going to be available as an option.

Both of these will be available with either a 6 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic and all wheel drive as standard, a really nice bonus for such a large car. Many also rumored that the 1.6 liter diesel would also be installed on this model but so far it seems that Peugeot wants the car to become a bit more than just a family cruiser.

The most interesting engine option though would be the 1.6 liter hybrid which will use the most powerful 270 horsepower petrol engine coupled to an electric motor offering a combined output of 340 horsepower and well over 400 N*m of torque. Unfortunately it seems that this engine will likely be offered only on the Chinese market while in Europe a 1.6 liter diesel hybrid could be released at a later date.

2016 Peugeot 6008 Release Date and Price

This new car will fall in line with their new 2008 compact crossover and with a future sportier version as well. The Peugeot 6008 will actually get an all new platform with the EMP2 which also underpins the 308 as well as the 408. However, unlike the other two, the 6008 will be the only one offering a four wheel drive system which will make it a bit heavier and also more expensive.

The price has not been announced just yet but many people expect it to be around 30% more than the equivalent C4 Grand Picasso which would still be well worth the money. The release date on the other hand will be at the end of 2016 and the production model will follow shortly after.

One of these is going to be the 2017 Infiniti JX 35 which is actually a successor for the QX60. At this point in time it is unclear if the car will stick with its current name or it will return to the name it received back in 2012 but whatever the case may be, the model will be a major refresh of the current QX60.

2017 Bugatti Veyron Price Release Date

Unfortunately, there’s not much that can be said about exterior. There are bunch of speculations based on spy photos, but that is pretty much it. So, at the front, the headlights will probably come revised and more oblique. There will possibly be a new front bumper design with intakes with different shape than in the current model. It also can be assumed that the daytime running lights will be new, because they are masked.

It will certainly have a well shaped body. It is possible that this is still a development phase for this model, so some other changes can happen. All in all, it can be assumed that it will be one good-looking supercar. As for the interior, the new Boxster will be well equipped with oodles of modern features and functionalities.

Engine and fuel economy

It is not sure will there be some major mechanical updates, but it can be seen that there will be some extra hp extracted from powertrains. Both the entry-level Boxster and Cayman will probably use a 2.0-liter flat-four, with a turbocharger and a direct fuel-injection system to get 240 hp. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, while a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic will be available at an extra cost.

It will also have a single turbo and direct injection. The GTS variants will come with an evolution of the S’s 2.5-liter engine with 370 hp. So, the most of Cayman and Boxster models will lose a pair of cylinders and will go turbo. The exception will be the Boxster Spyder which will come with some less powerful version of the same six. The new 2017 Porsche Boxster S should come highly efficient in terms of fuel economy. So, according to some resources this model will cruise 20 miles with a gallon of fuel, while on the highway, it will go 30 miles with a gallon of fuel.

Price and release date

The actual introduction date of the 2017 Porsche Boxster S is still unknown. However, it is expected to hit the market within the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017.
