2015 Peugeot 208 facelift will be introducing a new set of colours for the large public. In addition to the new Orange Power metallic paint revealed at the recent Geneva Motor Show, two textured colours have been added to the range of colours available at launch: Ice Grey and Ice Silver. And there are now two personalisation packs available for both the exterior and the interior of the new Peugeot 208.

Textured Paint

These colours offer several benefits. Their appearance, both matte and satin play with the light, unlike matte colours which generally smooth out curves and disguise shapes. Their texture is lightly granular to the touch. They are more hard-wearing and easier to care for than conventional matt paint, offering good resistance to micro-scratching and they accept frequent washing – high pressure jet wash or roller (with no wax cycle).

Custom Paint Cost

Because these colours are applied in production at the plant, a world premiere, such distinctive colours, normally only available on small special edition runs or as a very expensive premium hand-applied option (costing up to 6,000 Euros!) they have now become affordable, priced the same as pearlescent paint. In Europe, the price is below 800 Euros, with an on-cost compared to metallic paint of just 180 to 200 Euros.
