Peugeot 208 (2019): At A Glance
The new Peugeot 208 will start at around £16,000 when it arrives in summer 2019. It will be available with petrol and diesel engines, as well as an electric version badged the e-208 with a range of up to 211 miles.
Buyers can choose from a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine in 75, 100 or 130PS guises or a BlueHDi 1.5-litre diesel engine with 100PS. There's also a choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearboxes.
The interior of the 208 is inspired by the tech laden 508, with an abundance of soft-touch materials and a compact steering wheel that's complemented by a minimalist dashboard design. The 3D digital instrument panel can be projected like a hologram via the colour touchscreen.
There's also a seven- or 10-inch touchscreen display, depending on trim level, which provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Peugeot is offering a host of driver assistance technology including adaptive cruise control, active lane keeping assist and automatic headlight dipping.
Prices, CO2 and fuel economy ratings for the 208 are yet to be confirmed. The entry-level 1.2 petrol is expected to start in the region of £16,000, while the all-electric e-208 will exceed £20,000.
