Equally at ease in town as on the open road, it can escape from the city with confidence, due to features like Grip Control. With its higher driving position and pronounced wheel arches the 2008 has an appealing road presence and stance when fitted with either ‘Mud & Snow’ tyres or 17’’ alloy wheels. The black bumpers and body sills serve to protect it from abrasions with the addition of front and rear body protection and side mouldings in stainless steel.


It is fitted with the latest-generation engines. Due to the technology of the e-HDi Diesel and new 3-cylinder petrol engines, the 2008 urban crossover stands out from the competition with CO2 starting from just 99g/km.
