Peugeot will launch the new 208 in the spring 2012. The new Peugeot 208 will be available in two models: 3-door and 5-door.
The exterior design of the Peugeot 208 features a ‘floating grille, light signature, ‘boomerang’ rear lamps – each designed with harmony with the balance of the car. The two body styles have been given different treatment, with the style of the quarter panel of the three-door version recalling one of its illustrious older siblings.
Inside, the instruments and controls of the Peugeot 208 have been completely re-thought to become intuitive and clear. They are positioned around a small steering wheel, combined with an elevated instrument panel giving information at a glance and a large touch screen.
By achieving average CO2 emissions of 34g/km lower than the 207, the Peugeot 208 takes the lead in its segment. Its latest generation engine technology and the use of the e-HDi micro-hybrid system on virtually all versions add to the vehicle’s improvements in terms of weight reduction and aerodynamics.
With five models, four of which are equipped with the new generation Stop & Start System (e-HDi), the diesel range starts at 87g/km of CO2 (delivering fuel economy of 83.1 mpg) and never exceeds 99g! The Peugeot 208 introduces a new range of 3-cylinder petrol engines, 1.0- and 1.2-litre VTi, which are particularly efficient, with a range starting at 99g/km of CO2 (delivering 65.7mpg).
