Switching to a car with Grip Control, which is standard on Allure and Feline trim levels with 1.6 petrol and diesel engines, the difference in performance was highly remarkable. With the enhanced traction control and all season tyres, the Peugeot 2008 drove straight to the top of the slope. The drivers were encouraged to perform an emergency stop on the descent. The Peugeot's advanced traction system brought it to a halt with the minimum of bother.

The launch of the Peugeot 2008 Crossover was the largest media driving event ever staged at Tamworth Snow dome, the UK’s first indoor show slope when it opened in 1994.

Grip Control is designed for customers with active lifestyles who drive on a wide range of surfaces and occasionally need extra traction. It is patented technology from the PSA Group, Peugeot’s parent company.

Acting through components which are already fitted to the vehicle, Grip Control works on the car’s front wheels to boost driver confidence and safety. Standard mode is designed for normal road conditions and where there is a low level of skidding. However, the driver can switch away from Standard mode using the dial located in the centre console, opting instead for Snow, Off-Road, Sand or ESP Off. The result is a level of performance usually associated with 4x4 off-roaders.
