The new Peugeot 208 is a major contender in the supermini category. Ambitious good looks and intelligent interior styling combine to provide instant appeal. Meanwhile, competitive pricing and low running costs will attract the frugal driver.
The new Peugeot 208 is available in both three and five-door versions – both of which boast distinctive contemporary styling to appeal to the modern-day motorist. Expect an attractive exterior design, complete with bold signature headlights and a single floating grille for head-on presence. Sculpted wings enhance the vehicle’s athletic silhouette. Colour-coded mirrors and handles provide a fun finish to the exterior design.
The contemporary look and feel continues in the stylish and spacious cabin. The redesigned instrument panel is located at eye level for convenience, plus it’s clear and uncluttered for total ease of use. The steering wheel is more compact than ever to optimise the connection between the driver and the road. It is designed to enhance responsiveness. The addition of ambient lighting enhances the on-board environment for all. Front and rear passengers benefit from generous leg and headroom – even in the three-door model. Adjustable, ergonomic sports seats provide support and the ultimate comfort for all occupants.
Take your pick from a versatile range of four petrol and three diesel engines to power your new Peugeot 108. The most frugal diesel unit is the 1.4-litre e-HDi with 70bhp – it offers outstanding combined consumption of 83.1mpg and emissions as low as 87g/km. That means no vehicle excise duty when you go for this version. If you’re seeking the ultimate performance rather than top levels of economy, then the most powerful petrol option (1.6-litre THP with 208bhp) takes the car from 0 to 60mph in under 6.5 seconds. It’s up to you to choose the engine to match your criteria.
Technology and safety
Comprehensive safety features include six bags in standard models, plus electronic stability programme to ensure vehicle stability in all conditions. Cruise control is also available to minimise the strain of long journeys. Peugeot Connect SOS and Peugeot Connect Assistance are also available – these systems allow for quick emergency calls. Park assist, which helps you get into spaces with ease, is another option. An available multifunction colour touchscreen controls the on-board computer, radio and Bluetooth hands-free functions. Follow-me-home lighting enhances the driving experience.
