The Peugeot 208 5-door has had a makeover: this compact, next-generation hatchback is now even sportier and more elegant. The new 208 has been finessed in many key areas; with more assertive new styling, fresh exterior colour choices and even more innovative technology to make it stand out from the crowd.
Already benefiting from an advanced and innovative design, the New PEUGEOT 208 becomes sharper and more distinctive with a new front bumper and a wider fully integrated grille. This striking new look is supported by new two-tone headlamps. Combined with restyled front fog lamps, this fresh face subtly transforms the iconic 208. The range of colours and paint finishes available on the New Peugeot 208 has expanded, with several brand new hues including textured paint styles and the striking new metallic Orange Power.
At the rear, the full LED light clusters have been redesigned to incorporate Peugeot’s recognizable 3D ‘claws’. Sculpted sides and chrome window surrounds remain. Exclusive 16" and 17" alloy wheel options are now available.
The new Peugeot 208 comes with the 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engine. This new engine technology delivers energetic drive and performance, excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. It’s the result of intelligent, innovative engineering, which combines reduced weight materials with the efficiency of direct fuel injection to give you maximum pleasure behind the wheel, at any speed, for less. The 81kW PureTech turbo engine with new generation 6 speed automatic delivers combined fuel consumption of 4.5l/100km and CO2 emissions of just 104g/km.
It's no wonder our Turbo PureTech engine was awarded 2015 International Engine of the Year Award in the 1-litre to 1.4-litre category.
Climb into the new 208's Peugeot i-Cockpit, with its compact steering wheel, head-up instrument panel and large 7" touch screen, and discover your ticket to a driving experience that combines punchy thrills with maximum safety.
Enhancements have been made to improve comfort and desirability of the new Peugeot 208 interior. The steering wheel is now trimmed in full-grain leather and the dashboard moulding in COXET grain on Allure trim levels.
The Panoramic 'Cielo' roof with ambient lighting comes as an option on Allure to offer you an even better experience of the spacious cabin.
All of this adds up to a comfortable yet exhilarating driving experience that will make every day driving an absolute pleasure.
The New Peugeot 208 meets Euro 6 emissions standards.
The award winning PureTech petrol engine is a 1.2-litre turbocharged PureTech 110 Stop & Start engine. Put simply, a 1.2 PureTech engine gives you the power and performance of a 1.6 litre engine, but the efficiency of a smaller engine.
Coupled with the new EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox, which uses Quickshift technology allowing faster changes, this engine achievesclass-leading CO₂ emissions and fuel economy.
The new Peugeot 208 is bursting with technology. Its 7" multi-function colour touch screen acts as mission control, providing access and finger-tip control of all the car's audio, communications and navigation equipment (standard on Allure). A whole host of new equipment makes driving in urban areas even easier too, with safety, assistance and lifestyle systems including Stop & Start (S&S) technology, Active City Brake (optional on Allure), Electronic stability control (with Hill Assist on Allure), reversing camera (not available on Active) and optional Peugeot Mirror Screen®.
The new 208 offers a choice of Ice Silver or Ice Grey paintwork to create an instant, striking impression.
These innovative paint colours have both a matte and satin appearance and reflect changes in light to emphasise the stylish lines of the car.
More durable and easier to maintain than traditional matte paints, textured paints offer great resistance to micro-scratching and frequent washing as they have no special care requirements.
