Peugeot offers new fuel-efficient model in UAE

UAE, 10 days ago

French carmaker Peugeot is offering motorists in the UAE an efficient solution to the rising cost of motoring with its recently launched 508 fastback.

Peugeot 508 is the latest generation of the company’s sport sedan, and is equipped with a 1.6L turbo engine delivering 165 hp, and a top speed of 223km/h, all with a frugal fuel consumption of 14.6km/l, it said.

The Peugeot 508 fastback has been designed with compact coupe-inspired aerodynamics making it more fuel efficient. Compared to its predecessor, it has been given a weight reduction of 70kg, resulting in improved economy, safety and performance.

The 508 is packed with the latest cutting-edge technology including a variety of driving aids such as: active safety brake and distance alert, lane keeping assist, driver attention alert and active blind spot monitoring system. These are all included alongside the brand’s innovative i-cockpit.

Peugeot’s compact SUV, the 2008, takes the lead in the Peugeot SUV range in terms of fuel economy, with a consumption rate of 15.5km/l. Its 1.6L engine delivers a top speed of 188 km/h, and goes from 0 -100 kph in 13.1 seconds. The entry model to Peugeot’s SUV range combines robust exterior design and economic performance offering a practical driving package.

The Peugeot 3008 is the French brand’s flagship SUV, powered by a 1.6L turbo, 165hp engine complete with a 6-speed automatic gearbox ensuring maximum efficiency when it comes to fuel consumption - maintaining 15.1km/l. The multi award-winning 3008 was named the ‘Public Car of the Year’ through a public vote at the 2018 Middle East Car of the Year Awards.

Considered the family-friendly SUV - thanks to its spacious 7-seat interior - the Peugeot 5008 is the brand’s largest SUV.

Its 1.6L Turbo engine offers 15.1km/l, a rate similar to its smaller sibling, the 3008, and similarly reaches a top speed of 201 kph, and 0–100 kph in 9.9 seconds.

Samir Cherfan, senior vice president for sales and marketing, Peugeot Middle East, said: “As fuel prices continue to rise in the UAE, we have a solution for our customers with a range of stylish and economical cars.”

“We are shaking-up the industry with unmatchable offers, cutting-edge technology and premium quality products,” he said.

“Over the past two years we’ve launched two premium SUVs, the 3008 and 5008, and, most recently our elegant sport sedan, the 508. Since reintroducing the brand in the GCC we have doubled our market share, reflecting consumers' confidence in the Peugeot brand and our products. In our efforts to boost this growth, we are expanding our dealer network and partners beyond our existing presence in the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
