What the Future Holds

Although 2008 is a subcompact crossover SUV that competes in the same class as the MG ZS and the Kia Stonic, it is priced almost the same as the Kia Sportage and the Hyundai Tucson, both of which are a class above it.

This places the French SUV in a tricky position that only caters to a limited niche of car buyers. Although, it does have the looks and the pedigree of a well-regarded European brand that is likely to garner a lot of attention in Pakistan

With these aspects in view, it will be interesting to see how the SUV fares in the hyper-competitive SUV market of Pakistan.
