The Peugeot 208 has had a makeover and is now only available in its 5-door version unless you choose the GTi or special Black Edition trim levels which are exclusively 3-door versions only.
The new 208 has been redesigned with more assertive styling, fresh exterior colour choices including Orange Power and new personalisation options to the radiator grille finisher, door mirror shells and fog light finishers.
It's not just a body colour offered in the new 208. You can give your car an individual touch with the extensive choice of stylish finishes including solid, metallic, pearlescent and textured.
As standard, every 208 receives a multifunction colour touchscreen complete with Mirror Screen®, CarPlay® and Android Auto® allowing you to easily and effortlessly connect your smartphone with your car to stay connected wherever you're travelling.
The redesigned 208 receives a new front bumper, a wider fully integrated grille and more pronounced lines giving the car a more streamlined front face.
This striking new look is supported by new two-tone headlamps fitted as standard from Active trim level. Combined with restyled front fog lamps, this fresh face subtly transforms the 208.
At the rear, the full LED light clusters have been redesigned to incorporate Peugeot's 3D 'claws'. The sculpted sides and chrome window surrounds remain, but exclusive new 16" and 17" alloy wheel options are available across the range, in a choice of new finishes.
Let the science of design look after you with the innovative Peugeot i-Cockpit® in the new 208. The compact leather trimmed sports steering wheel is positioned lower than normal to help reduce driver fatigue because your arms sit lower and closer together.
The 7" colour touchscreen provides you with access to a range of functions including 3D Connected Navigation, music streaming and hands-free Bluetooth® calling. All of this functionality is at your fingertips allowing you to stay connected and drive safely.
You also receive a head-up instrument panel which houses all of your essential driving information in a central location that is easy for you to read.
Do you want your touchscreen to look a lot more familiar so that it is instantly easier to use? The 208 offers Mirror Screen® and CarPlay® technology which is able to replicate compatible apps from your smartphone and display them on your touchscreen. MirrorLink® is compatible with Android phones, whereas CarPlay® is an Apple programme compatible with iPhone5 and above. Unfortunately, MirrorLink® is unable to offer voice control functionality (but you can make hands-free calls on Android using Bluetooth®). However, CarPlay® uses Siri which allows phone calls, text messages, music and maps to be used without the need for you to take your eyes off of the road.
The Park Assist system is a premium feature on the 208 that is able to assess an available parking space to ensure that it will fit. Not only that, it will manoeuvre in and out of a parking space for you, leaving you to control the acceleration, braking and gear changes. During the manoeuvre, the system provides you with visual and audio information to ensure your safety.
This special edition of the 208 is only available in three-door versions with, unsurprisingly, a number of black personalisations including:
The 208 Black Edition is available in Nera Black, Bianca White and Hurricane Grey body colours all with tinted rear windows.
The interior still receives the 7" multifunction colour touchscreen with CarPlay® and Mirror Link® technology as well as Black Cran cloth trim.
If you are looking for superior performance, the 208 GTi by Peugeot Sport is able to accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 6.5 seconds.
This acceleration power is matched by 323mm diameter brake discs fitted with Brembo fixed four piston calipers, a Peugeot Sport signature feature.
The 208 GTi has an exclusive exterior design with a dual-paint finish available in Satin White, Nera Black, Rioja Red or Ice Silver. The radiator grille surround continues this striking design with an upper strip in Matt Black and a lower one in Red.
In a nod to legacy and the original GTi, the rear quarter panel of the current model bears a '208 GTi by Peugeot Sport' logo.
Also at the rear, the car boasts chrome-plated twin exhaust pipes with distinctive sporty tones produced by the 1.6 THP engine.
The interior is just as special using red and black again with red stitching in the sports bucket front seats, a shiny black instrument panel, decorative features in gloss black and top-of-the-range floor mats in red.
Drive around in the 2016 International Engine of the Year when you choose one of Peugeot's PureTech petrol engines which combines efficiency with cutting-edge technology. You will experience a 25% saving in fuel consumption and a reduction in CO2 emissions compared to a vehicle with equivalent power and torque.
BlueHDi technology provides the most efficient diesel engines on the market and every version of the 208 emits under 95g/km of CO2 with a maximum 94.2 mpg on the 1.6L BlueHDi 75 Stop & Start version. The 208 is also now available with the new EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox, which uses Quickshift technology allowing faster changes.
