The Peugeot 208 5 Door
Located in Wokingham
The Peugeot 208 5-door delivers equal measures of sportiness and elegance thanks to its sculpted exterior design. This attention to detail is replicated on the inside with Peugeot's i-Cockpit, which provides the driver with a compact sports steering wheel, head-up instrument panel, and large colour touchscreen. Everyday driving is a breeze with safety, assistance, and lifestyle systems including Stop & Start (S&S) technology, Active City Brake, smartphone compatibility, reversing camera, and optional City Park Assist. Both diesel and petrol engines also strike the right balance between performance and efficiency. It’s a fun, infectious, yet practical small city car.
The Peugeot 208 benefits from an assertive and distinctive design with a restyled front bumper and wider grille. Most models get two-tone headlamps with black and chrome masks and hi-tech LED light signature too.
You will want to drive the Peugeot 208 just for the fun of it. Behind the wheel, you can't help but be impressed by the amount of front end grip and its speed of turn-in. While the ETG5 auto gearbox is perfect for the city, the manual box will undoubtedly tempt driving purists.
Despite its compact dimensions, the Peugeot 208 5-door has ample amounts of rear seat room and generous luggage space behind. If you push the rear bench forward, the standard 285-litres of boot space extends to as much as 1,076-litres for even more practicality.
Living with it
The Peugeot 208's diesel options are extremely frugal, but many won't look beyond the 1.2-litre PureTech petrol. Combing perky performance with excellent efficiency, this engine can deliver a combined economy figure of 62.8mpg and emissions of just 104g/km.
