The new Peugeot 208 strikes a strong feline silhouette, from its signature lighting and distinctive front grille to its raised 'spine' along the length of the car. From nose to tail, it balances agility with aesthetic grace. Unmistakeable LED headlights automatically light up the road when they sense it's getting dark, while the 208 gets a green light from the environment for its eco-friendly design using recycled materials in major components such as the bumper.
With a range of different editions to choose from, the 208 offers five-door practicality or three-door compactness, as well as special Style, XY, Roland Garros and GTi editions.
The feline styling continues inside with sweeping lines across the dashboard and sleek air vents. At the centre, the stylish colour touchscreen offers smooth multifunction graphics. Continuing Peugeot's attention to detail, the 208's compact steering wheel and eye-level instrument panel enable fast response to situations on the road. What's more, with increased interior room and automatic dual-zone air conditioning, both driver and passengers can enjoy a more comfortable ride.
With a wide range of engines and gearboxes available, there is a 208 to suit every driving style. As most diesel models are equipped with Peugeot's e-HDi Stop & Start system, the 208 delivers more efficient driving, with emissions as low as 87g/km. There is a great range of three-cylinder PureTech petrol engines in either manual or automatic, including the 1.2-litre e-VTi with Stop & Start. Offering the power and performance of a 1.6-litre engine with the efficiency of one much smaller, PureTech is one of Peugeot's leading technologies.
With a five-star NCAP rating, the 208 offers world-class safety for driver and passengers alike. Generous systems are provided as standard, such as Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and remote central locking, along with cruise control. Meanwhile, options such as sat nav offer a stress-free route home, while the parking assistance feature helps make the most of even the smallest spots.
