2008 SUV Allure Premium
The latest addition to the award-winning** 2008 SUV range, the Allure Premium combines strong visual appeal with excellent levels of specification.Sporty, compact and practical – this is the SUV to be seen in.
SHARP SUV STYLE
The 2008 SUV Allure Premium offers a commanding road presence with striking 17” ‘Eridan Anthra’ alloy wheels*; roof bars; rear sports spoiler; wheel arch extensions and front & rear scuff plates. The exterior is further complemented with the addition of a panoramic glass roof which comes with electric blind and ambient lighting. The strong styling is enhanced with colour-coded door mirrors & door handles and the vibrant palette selection includes : two solid colours (Hurricane Grey or Bianca White); one pearlescent colour (Pearlescent White); four metallic colours (Nera Black, Emerald, Cumulus Grey or Nimbus Grey) and then the Ultimate Red Varnish.
Tinted rear and side windows add to the appeal, and all windows are electric, with ‘one touch’ and ‘anti pinch’ functionality offering the maximum in comfort and convenience. Cornering assist fog lights; rear fog lights; LED daytime running lights and the striking rear ‘claw’ effect LED lights complete the impactful package and offer real stand out on the road.
The 2008 SUV Allure Premium delivers an intuitive, safe and agile drive with the innovative layout of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®. The leather-trimmed sports steering wheel, which sits lower than a traditional design, ensures that your arms are lower and closer together, which reduces driver fatigue and offers more precise steering and improved manoeuvrability.
The head-up instrument panel allows driver information to be viewed above, rather than through, the steering wheel and is accessed without taking your eyes off the road. In addition, the 7”multifunction colour touchscreen places all the functionality at the driver’s fingertips.
This compact SUV also offers space, convenience and practicality with a low loading boot height of 60cm and 1/3-2/3 modular rear seats which allow conversion of the boot volume from 410 litres to 1400 litres. Pressing the button at the top of the backrest is enough to tilt the back allowing the seats to fold down automatically into a completely flat floor.
7” MULTIFUNCTION COLOUR TOUCHSCREEN
This is the conduit to all the audio and communications equipment, including DAB Digital radio and Bluetooth® connectivity. Compatible with an iPhone 5 or above, calls and text messages can be dictated using Apple CarPlay™ functionality, providing voice activation for the driver, meaning compatible and safe applications such as Apple Maps, Spotify and call features, can be activated and used without the need to remove your hands from the wheel.
Android Auto has also been designed with safety in mind. With touchscreen interface, and easy-to-use voice actions, it's designed to minimise distraction meaning you stay focused on the road ahead. Features include :
Google Maps with free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information and lane guidance.
Voice activation accessing hundreds of available voice commands, making it easy to find your next destination, change and select music, or reply to a message.
This adapted traction control system responds to most terrains and weather conditions. It acts on the front wheels by adjusting wheel spin and torque to optimise traction in low-grip conditions.
Versatile and adaptable, the Grip Control® dial located on the centre console lets you choose the appropriate mode (Standard; Snow; Mud; Sand & ESP Off) for the surface you encounter. The system uses electronic components that are already installed in the car meaning that it adds no extra weight and therefore no excessive fuel consumption, unlike a traditional 4x4.
COLOUR REVERSING CAMERA & REAR PARKING AID
The colour reversing camera* automatically activates when you select reverse gear and lets you view the area behind the car as you manoeuvre. The rear parking aid provides further assistance for those tight spaces.
CONNECTED 3D NAVIGATION
The Connected 3D Satellite Navigation* system includes European mapping, 3D city mapping and voice recognition (for radio, navigation and telephone functions) and is linked to the colour touchscreen. The three year subscription has an automatic and permanent connection to online navigation services (in partnership with TomTom®). This can also be achieved through tethering a compatible smartphone (data charges may apply). Key features include:
TomTom® Traffic: Real-time updates on traffic conditions (traffic jams, road works) and suggested alternative routes.
Local Weather: Displays forecasted weather conditions along the route.
Fuel Stations: Displays nearby fuel stations and pricing.
Local search: Access address and contact detail information for a point of interest.
PEUGEOT CONNECT SOS
PEUGEOT Connect SOS* is technology that could prove vital in an emergency.
Automatic emergency call: if the airbags inflate or the seat belt pre-tensioners are triggered, the vehicle automatically makes an emergency call on behalf of the driver. Peugeot Connect SOS* then locates the vehicle, establishes telephone communication with its occupants and arranges for the appropriate emergency service to be dispatched.
Manual emergency call: whether the victim or the witness of an emergency situation, the driver can call Peugeot Connect SOS* quickly by pressing the SOS button located on the dashboard (and holding for 3 seconds).
