Peugeot 6008 under development for the Chinese market

Peugeot is certainly the most famous French car manufacturer in the world. It has more than 60 million vehicles sold on the entire planet. The brand is a successful one mostly because it tries to reunite excellence and emotion in its vehicles. And it is precisely this reunion that will also characterize the Peugeot 6008 which will be a mid-size SUV specially developed for the Chinese market.

The concept car previewing the Peugeot 6008 is planned to be officially introduced at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. The year 2015 will be the one that will set the concept into a production form. It will make use of the PSA's new EMP2 architecture and it will be manufactured in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture.

The 2015 Peugeot 6008 will most likely be powered by a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that generates 163 bhp (121 kW) and an optional newly developed V6 created only for Asian markets. The base model will be priced around 200,000 yuan (33,000 USD / 24,000 EUR / 20,100 GBP) while the range-topping version will probably go up to about 250,000 yuan (49,400 USD / 36,000 EUR / 30,000 GBP).
