Long-awaited 207 replacement starts under £10,000
Peugeot 208

208 is on sale in three- and five-door form from June

The French supermini goes on sale at the end of June, with prices starting at £9,995.

Five trim levels

The 208 will be available in five trim levels – Access, Access+, Active, Allure and Feline. A limited edition Ice Velvet version will also be offered from launch.

Entry-level Access spec costs £9,995, but equipment is basic. Upgrading to Access+ costs £850 and adds a touchscreen display, cruise control and air con.

Key highlights of the Active trim level (from £11,695) include Bluetooth and alloy wheels, while Allure trim gets climate control on top.

Top-spec Feline trim starts at £15,945 and features 17-inch alloy wheels and a panoramic glass roof.

Five petrol, three turbodiesel engines

Five petrol engines are available in the 208, including a 68bhp 1.0-litre unit emitting a claimed 99g/km CO2, meaning zero car tax (VED).

There’s also an 82bhp 1.2, a 95bhp 1.4 and two 1.6-litre petrols: a 120bhp unit and a high-performance 156bhp turbo.

Turbodiesel choices comprise a 70bhp 1.4-litre and two stop-start equipped e-HDi versions – 70bhp and 90bhp 1.4s. The most efficient diesel in the range is the 1.4 e-HDi. Emitting a claimed 87g/km CO2, it also qualifies for zero car tax (VED).

Low weight, strong efficiency

The lightest 208 model weighs just 975kg. That’s significantly lighter than most superminis; in comparison, an entry-level Vauxhall Corsa weighs 1,070kg.

This helps the 208 achieve that claimed headline efficiency of 87g/km CO2 and should mean improved economy all-round.

The 208 will be available in three- and five-door body styles from the June launch date.
