Sleeker, more assertive and smarter than ever, the new Peugeot 208 has been completely re-energised. One of the UK's most popular superminis, the 208 is now powered by an efficient range of Euro 6 engines, enjoys new streamlined looks and comes equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including Peugeot i-Cockpit featuring a seven-inch colour touchscreen.
Sharper exterior styling involving more pronounced contours gives the new Peugeot 208 an added sense of urgency, accentuated by a wider, fully integrated grille and a new front bumper. Three-door and five-door models are available, along with a wide range of trim options.
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. Chrome door mirrors are now standard from the Allure trim upwards, strengthening the desirable nature of our best-selling car.
Inside the new Peugeot 208 you'll also find plenty of updated styling cues. The car's compact dimensions make it ideal for city driving, while clever use of space ensures a comfortable interior that's vibrant yet refined. Precise handling and manoeuvring in tight urban spaces is aided by the smaller sports steering wheel. Peugeot's i-Cockpit technology displays essential journey information and provides easy access to settings and controls via a head-up display and touchscreen.
Impressive attention to detail sees high-grade materials used throughout the cabin, resulting in a quality, premium finish. Personalising the interior is simple thanks to the range of equipment and styling options available. Sports seats with contrast stitching, laser engraving and leather upholstery and finishers can all be chosen.
Offering the perfect blend of power and efficiency, the new 208's engine range has something to suit everyone. Every powerplant meets the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, which helped the 208 win the award for International Engine of the Year 2015.
Outstanding fuel efficiency can be achieved by selecting a BlueHDi diesel powertrain. The 75bhp variant is capable of returning up to 94.2mpg combined when combined with a five-speed manual transmission, and keeps CO2 emissions down to just 79g/km. Buyers focused on power and performance can look towards the Peugeot 208 GTi by PS. It comes with a 1.6-litre turbo charged powerplant, capable of carrying the 208 from 0-60mph in less than 6.5 seconds.
Various active and passive safety features are fitted as standard, including ABS, ESP, a system of six front, side and curtain airbags, plus tyre pressure sensors. Advanced devices are also available across the range including Active City Brake, parking sensors and a reversing camera to help out with manoeuvring in small spaces.
