The new Peugeot 208 boasts an athletic silhouette and a suite of high-tech features. If you’re looking for a compact hatchback with bags of style and excellent efficiency, this could be the car for you.
An aerodynamic exterior ensures optimum performance when you hit the road. Body-coloured door handles and LED taillights enhance a contemporary silhouette, while 15- and 16-inch alloys (on Active and Allure trims respectively) provide a bold finishing touch. The model’s rear fascia boasts a striking sporty spoiler, plus a chrome double exhaust to emphasise its sporty credentials. Take your pick from a choice of vibrant paint shades to make the Peugeot 208 your own.
A Black Edition is also available in three colours: Nera Black, Bianca White and Hurricane Grey. It comes with 16-inch gloss black alloy wheels, tinted rear windows and gloss black door mirror shells. This hatchback has never looked so sharp.
The five-seat cabin is surprisingly spacious for a car of this size. The well-appointed space is kitted out with Black Horizon cloth upholstery, creating a refined look and feel. A host of features enhance your experience further – the likes of remote-controlled central locking, cruise control with speed limiter, electric front windows and air conditioning come as standard. In the rear, you’ll find a 285-litre boot, with plenty of room for your weekly shop and your holiday luggage. Upgrade to Active to gain a leather steering wheel, while Allure trims come with an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
If you want the cheapest option, go for the smallest, 1.0-litre 68bhp petrol engine – it’s an impressive unit, delivering 64.2mpg and 102g/km of CO2. If you want more power, opt for the 1.6-litre diesel unit, which produces 74bhp and 230Nm of torque. It offers returns as high as 80.7mpg, while keeping CO2 emissions down to 90g/km – and that means it’s the most efficient choice of the line-up.
High levels of safety come as standard with the Peugeot 208. The line-up comes equipped with two front and side airbags, plus two front and rear curtain airbags. There’s also an intelligent Active City Brake, which works to minimise the risk of low-speed collisions – it automatically triggers the emergency brake when necessary.
Meanwhile, a suite of infotainment systems keeps you fully connected on the move. Choose your music or check directions through the intuitive seven-inch touchscreen, with just a touch of a button. You also get Mirror Screen®, which mirrors compatible apps from your smartphone and displays them on the screen. This means that the road has your undivided attention at all times.
