The Peugeot 208 is one of the strongest contenders in the highly competitive supermini class, generously equipped in terms of both comfort and safety.
The sporty profile of the 208 is enhanced by the distinctive radiator grille, chrome window surrounds, black and chrome front lighting and red 3D LED lights at the rear. The Allure trim adds automatic headlamps and cornering front fog lights for enhanced visibility.
The special three-door Black Edition 208 features gloss black trims on the grille, door mirrors and fog lights, all complementing the 16-inch gloss black alloy wheels. High-specification models include the GT Line and GTi Prestige. The GT Line has striking 17-inch alloy wheels and electric folding and heated door mirrors, while upgrading to the GTi Prestige gives you a panoramic glass roof and 17-inch black alloys.
There is also a 208 GTi edition with post-factory upgrade by Peugeot Sport, available with exclusive dual-colour paintwork, complemented by a two-tone front grille.
The ergonomic design of the i-Cockpit gives you maximum comfort, with everything positioned for optimal convenience. Arm fatigue is minimised thanks to the sports-style steering wheel, which is smaller and lower than a standard steering wheel. All the driving information you need is easy to read on the high-level instrument panel, making your journey safer as you don’t need to take your eyes off the road. A leather-trimmed steering wheel is fitted as standard, while the GT Line edition and up get a leather and chrome-trimmed gear knob. Front sports seats are fitted in the GT Line, with heated versions in the GTi Prestige.
The engine choices for the Peugeot 208 include the 1.0-litre petrol and 1.2-litre PureTech petrol options, as well as diesels. The 1.2-litre PureTech is available with manual or automatic transmission. The Blue HDi 75 diesel is by far the most economical in the range – and possibly in the world – delivering an outstanding 94.2mpg, with CO₂ emissions of just 79g/km.
A seven-inch colour touchscreen and DAB radio are provided from the entry-level Active and up. On higher trim options, Mirror Screen technology allows compatible smartphone apps to be displayed on the vehicle’s touchscreen, using Mirror Link for android or Apple Car Play.
All 208 models are fitted with a wide range of safety features, including ABS, ESP, ISOFIX seat fixtures and tyre pressure sensors. Optional extras available on the Allure and GT Line editions include a reversing camera, and Park Assist which uses sensors to manage parking manoeuvres for you.
