Peugeot has created its 208 model with the philosophy of 'regeneration' in its production.
As the newest model in Peugeot's 20 series, motorists can expect all the latest improvements in drive handling and technological advancements, as well as classic inspiration from Peugeot's brand heritage.
A new design philosophy marks out the style and visual direction of the 208. Peugeot has made sure that the 208's visual signature creates an impact on viewers from every angle, from the outside as well as within. Exterior highlights include the single floating grille, distinctive headlights, and sculpted wings for an overall athletic profile.
Inside, Peugeot's contemporary design reflects the stylish and modern exterior. Comfort and ease of use are the priority, and there is a sense of elegance created by the functions and features and their manner of operation. Drive information is communicated in a clear and simple manner through the redesigned instrument panel. The steering wheel has been designed to be more compact, to create more of a connection between the driver and the road. Ambient lighting is included to create a unique atmosphere. There is also a multifunction colour touchscreen to control the on-board computer, radio, and Bluetooth® hands-free functions.
Four petrol engines and three diesel engines are available for the 208 line. The most frugal of the diesel units, the 1.4 litre e-HDi with 70hp, offers outstanding combined fuel consumption of 83.1mpg and CO2 emissions of just 87g/km - far below the current or likely future threshold for Vehicle Excise Duty. The versatility of the engine range, however, also ensures that there are engines available for drivers with a focus on performance rather than economy. The most powerful of the petrol units, the 1.6 litre THP with 208hp, can propel the 208 from 0-62mph in a mere 6.5 seconds.
Safety features include six airbags fitted as standard, and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) as a drive safety assistant to ensure vehicle stability, monitored by the 208 during all road conditions. Peugeot has also included Peugeot Connect SOS and Peugeot Connect Assistance, which allow for fast emergency calls in the event of witnessing or being involved in an accident.
