Peugeot 2008: Practical information / Towing device

Load distribution

  • Distribute the load in the trailer so that the heaviest items are as close as possible to the axle, and the nose weight approaches the maximum permitted without exceeding it.

Air density decreases with altitude, thus reducing engine performance. The maximum towable load must be reduced by 10% per 1,000  metres of altitude.

Peugeot 2008. Towing device Use genuine towing devices and their wiring harnesses approved by PEUGEOT. We recommend having them fitted by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

If not fitted by a PEUGEOT dealer, they must still be fitted in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer's instructions.

Certain driving or manoeuvring aid functions are automatically deactivated while an approved towing system is in use.

Peugeot 2008. Towing device Comply with the maximum authorised towable weight, as indicated on your vehicle's registration certificate, on the manufacturer's label and in the Technical data section of this guide.

Complying with the maximum authorised nose weight (towball weight) also includes the use of accessories (bicycle carriers, tow boxes, etc.).
