Peugeot 208’s appealing style is stronger, sportier and more streamlined at first sight and enhanced by the new Orange Power metallic paint which gives the car a feel of dynamism, youth and freshness.
With exclusive colours, personalisation possibilities, sporty model variants, new technologies that increase comfort and safety plus frugal, high-performance engines, Peugeot 208 excels in every area.
Sporty, streamlined style
A strong front bumper design and wide radiator grille with a broad surround blends into the bumper and gives Peugeot 208 a sharp, strong and precise face.
That strong frontal styling is underscored by a two-tone headlight design with black and chrome masks giving a keen, structured look that is added to by a premium daytime running light signature that adds both sophistication and a mark of technology, making the car stand out from the crowd.
Compact and ultra-compliant
Peugeot 208’s compact size –less than four metres long – combines with its compact steering wheel to make it agile and ultra-compliant in the urban environment while enhancing driving pleasure for a fun, exciting experience.
As much at home in the city as it is on the open road, Peugeot 208 is practical for everyday life and is easy to park thanks to the reversing camera and sensors* (for detection of hidden objects when reversing) and Park Assist** (an active reverse parking aid that works below 8km/h).
*Camera is an option. On Allure grade models fitted with a Personalisation Pack, front sensors and self-park will not be available. Driver assistance equipment, for which the driver remains in control of the vehicle. **Allure and GT Line grade only. On Allure grade models fitted with a Personalisation Pack, front sensors and self-park feature will not be available.
A thrilling, instinctive drive
Inside, Peugeot 208 puts all its features within easy reach and with Peugeot’s i-Cockpit layout, actions are impressively simple. The i-Cockpit design consists of a compact steering wheel, a head-up instrument panel and a large 7-inch touchscreen, the combination giving complete control and an exciting, instinctive and safe drive.
Peugeot 208 also boasts a high quality, stylish interior in which every detail – from the available space and choice of trim materials to the unprecedented technological lighting environment – counts.

Peugeot offers an extensive range of low emission vehicles; with more than half its worldwide sales being vehicles with NEDC CO2 emissions results of less than 140 g of C02 per km.^ This performance is down to proven technologies of which Peugeot is one of the pioneers.
Economical petrol engines with mixed consumption all under 4.5L/ 100km. The new Peugeot 208 offers a range of latest generation PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines - all in line with the Euro 6 standard in Europe - guaranteeing performance and economy during use. It also owes its high level performance to optimised combustion and limited friction. Despite offering remarkable performance, these engines are also very economical. They enable a reduction of up to 25% of consumption to a emissions compared to a 4 cylinder engine of the same power.^ Peugeot just received the International Engine of the Year Award for its 3 cylinders Turbo PureTech engine. The engine was named best in the 1 litre to 1.4 litre category.*
*Organised by Engine Technology International magazine and decided after driving tests by an international panel of 84 renowned motoring journalists from 34 countries.

No test can simulate all ‘real world’ driving conditions. Actual onroad fuel consumption is will vary due to factors such as traffic conditions, vehicle conditions and load, fuel quality and how the vehicle is driven.

Pleasure and enjoyment
Peugeot 208 offers high levels of performance with efficient, versatile and economical PureTech engines and without compromising on pleasure and enjoyment. Combined with the Peugeot i-Cockpit and its compact steering wheel, its suspension settings have been adapted for the different engines and weight optimisation guaranteeing fuel economy and responsiveness, Peugeot 208’s chassis offers a perfect balance between comfort and roadholding for real driving pleasure.
EAT6 automatic gearbox
The 1.2 litre PureTech engine with Stop & Start technology fitted to Peugeot 208 features the EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox with Quickshift technology for quick, smooth gear changes and multiple gearshifts.
Its energy efficiency is impressive, almost matching a conventional manual transmission through reduced internal friction and a combination of torque converters that lock whenever necessary to prevent slipping.
This brings about a difference in emission compared to a manual gearbox of just 1g/km of CO2, (with the same tyres), making this version very well positioned in terms of enjoyment and fuel economy.*
