The Peugeot 208 is returning to the manufacturer’s line up to once again be a dominant presence in the world of hatchback motoring. This latest iteration - which also comes in innovative Peugeot e-208 - features all the sporty chic and contemporary appeal that defines the French carmaker’s vehicles, while intelligent automotive technology and engaging features add to the charm on offer.
One look at the Peugeot 208 and it’s clear that this is a vehicle that doesn’t compromise. Bold and daring, the model is sportier and more eye-catching than ever. Standout body colours combine with a Black Diamond roof on selected models to really capture attention, while the new large chrome grille is flanked by three-claw full LED headlights. With the addition of LED daytime running lights, a dynamic rear spoiler, and the panoramic roof, this really is a model that is confident of making a splash.
The interior is no less impressive. Fully updated from past editions of the 208, the model provides a next-generation driving experience today. With the Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit, there is the opportunity to enjoy motoring that is as intuitive as it gets, with the ten-inch colour touchscreen, satin chrome piano switches, LED ambient lighting, and a configurable 3D head-up display providing you with all the key information you need.
There’s technology aplenty too, with the touchscreen the hub of activity for your motoring. Here you will be able to manage the climate control and satellite navigation, as well as connect to your smartphone via Apple Car Play or Android Auto, thereby enabling you to enjoy safe and simple communications and multimedia streaming. Safety has been considered too, with Peugeot Drive Assist, Full Park Assist, Lane Keeping technology and more all available for your peace of mind.
Petrol, diesel and all-electric engine options mean there is undoubtedly an Peugeot 208 to suit you. And, while the PureTech and BlueHDi diesel engines are impressive in their offering, the undoubted star of the show is the Peugeot e-208 model, which provides a remarkable range of 217 miles on a full charge. Plus, with zero CO2 emissions produced, you can rest assured taking to the road with a clear conscience is guaranteed. All this backed by silent running and an ECO driving mode to optimise performance.
This innovative model comes with fast and intuitive charging capabilities, with the potential to reach 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes, while a 7kW dedicated charging point will fully restore the charge in 7.5 hours. With Government grants available to subsidy purchases of vehicles and charge points, there’s never been a better time to go electric.
