Regarded as the model that helped Peugeot return to the small car segment, the current 208 is now ready for a mid-life facelift, scheduled to be introduced during this year Geneva Motor Show.

With nearly one million units sold, the Peugeot 208 features new design updates and a revised engine range, which now includes the most efficient diesel engine in the world.

Exterior

At the front, the new bumper presents a sharper, more precise and muscular line. The wider grille and its thicker chrome finisher are now fully integrated into the bumper. Style is underlined at the front by new two-tone headlamps, with black and chrome masks structuring the lamp for a sharper look, and a LED light signature. At the rear, the lamps have new 3D LED claws.

Interior

Inside the new 208, we find the Peugeot i-Cockpit has wheel trimmed in full-grain leather, moulded dashboard strip and LED rings around the analogue dials. Its large 7’’ touch screen provides access to all systems (audio, navigation, telephone, vehicle information, and internet). Furthermore, it brings with it on-board connectivity: Bluetooth and USB, mobile applications via Peugeot Connect Apps and the new MirrorScreen system that makes it possible to transfer the screen of a smartphone to the vehicle’s screen, to make full use of its applications.

Drivetrain

The engine range will include three power versions of the popular 1.6 HDi unit, delivering 75, 100 and 120 hp. With the exception of the entry level 75 hp version, they are all fitted as standard with the Stop & Start system. The standard version achieves CO2 emissions of only 79 g/km for a fuel consumption of only 3.0 litres per 100 km (78 mpg). A record for the segment, and in the market.

The 1.6 litre BlueHDi 120 S&S, coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox, produces only 94 g/km. Following the launch of the naturally aspirated 1.0 litre PureTech 68 and 1.2 litre PureTech 82 engines, the PureTech family of three-cylinder petrol engines is expanded with the 1.2 litre turbocharged PureTech 110 S&S version. Coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox, this engine achieves CO2 emissions of 103 g/km.

Availability

Produced both in Poissy (France) and Trnava (Slovakia) for all destinations in Europe, sales will start from mid-June 2015.
