BERMAZ AUTO ALLIANCE SDN BHD OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES THE NEW PEUGEOT 2008 AT THE NEW PEUGEOT GLENMARIE 3S FLAGSHIP CENTRE
21st January 2022 – The New PEUGEOT 2008 is now officially launched at the new PEUGEOT Glenmarie 3S Flagship centre today, by Bermaz Auto Alliance Sdn Bhd, the new sole distributor for the PEUGEOT brand in Malaysia.
Powerful and distinctive in style, the New PEUGEOT 2008 is a sculptural and desirable object. It fulfils the ambition to turn over a new and remarkable page in the history of PEUGEOT SUVs and is fully in line with the current style of the range while displaying its own personality. The balanced lines and overall proportions are those of an SUV, with a recessed windshield that makes the bonnet more horizontal, creating a strong body. The car sits well on its wheels, perfectly shouldered, strong and reassuring.
Presenting a strong sense of identity, the front incorporates a proud and straight grille, a carved bonnet and LED daytime running lights that fade under the full-LED headlamps in order to resurface below. The 17” Black Onyx & Diamond Cut rims which perfectly fill the arches, adds a robust styling to complete its sporty outlook.
At the front and rear, the New PEUGEOT 2008 features full-LED lighting technology with PEUGEOT’s iconic three-claw signature illumination.

On the inside, the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is based on the same fundamentals which offer flawless ergonomics for awakening the senses, including:
• a compact steering wheel, for better handling and better grip,
• a large HD touch screen at your fingertips,
• and now an innovative 3D heads up instrument cluster
A favourite of our customers and currently present in 5 million PEUGEOT vehicles around the world, it’s a wholly new interpretation which is currently equipped on the New PEUGEOT 2008.
Information is placed in the driver's line of sight and the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® 3D instrument cluster projects it like a hologram. The indications are dynamic and animated as they get closer to the eye depending on their degree of importance or urgency, thereby increasing reactivity by around half a second. The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® 3D is a real innovation, a world-first in the segment and it improves driving in every way in terms of efficiency, readability, and safety.
