Widely acclaimed since its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Peugeot 208 is an attractively styled supermini boasting a wide choice of petrol and diesel engines as well as outstanding interior comfort and driving enjoyment.
Weighing just 975kg, the vehicle is nimble and quick-handling in towns or on the motorway, aided by the light and accurate steering. It is nevertheless easy to keep the vehicle under your full control, due to the effective Electronic Stability Control system. Safety is enhanced further by the standard provision of six airbags and a collapsible steering column – enough to give the car a five star safety rating from Euro NCAP
The 208 offers a choice of powerful, reliable and Euro 5-compliant engines. The five common-rail diesel engines are particularly impressive and fuel-efficient. All produce carbon dioxide emissions of under 100g/km, making drivers exempt from road tax. Meanwhile, the extraordinarily low fuel consumption can save you hundreds or even thousands of pounds a year; the 1.4 litre e-HDi diesel engine gives combined fuel economy of up to 83.1mpg.
The car is available as a three- or five-door hatchback, as well as specialist XY or GTI versions. These premium specifications offer even more style and panache; the XY has an even more luxurious interior and a distinctive "Purple Night" theme, whilst the 200bhp of the GTI's engine can achieve 0-62mph acceleration in under seven seconds.
