EXTERIOR DESIGN

We’re driving design style into the future with the 208. The exterior is sculpted to give the car a dynamic look, and the floating front grille, signature LED lightingi and boomerang-shaped rear lights all work together to give this small car an unmistakable presence.


SHAPE AND DESIGN

It may sound strange for a car to have a 'spine' but the Peugeot 208's shape features detailing around its centre line to give it a distinctive feline look, from the grille up over the bonnet and down to the boot.


FRONT GRILLE

Some people would call it just a radiator grille; to us it's more like a sculpture. With a classic look given a hi-tech twist, it seems to float free from the bodywork.

Inside the grille, hi-tech mesh and finely cut sections give a real feeling of quality and luxury. And the bigger air intake helps reduce fuel consumption, adding a lot of substance to its unique style.


WHEELS

The Peugeot 208 gives you a choice of stylish wheels; 16" alloy on Active and Allure and 17" alloy on Allure Premium.


LIGHTING SIGNATURE

The unmistakable face of the 208, with its LED headlightsi, makes a real impact, day or night. And anyone driving behind a 208 will spot the Peugeot lion's claws in the form of three bold red slashes in the signature boomerang rear lights.

You don't have to think about turning the lights on – they'll come on automatically as it gets dark


AERODYNAMICS

Careful attention has been paid to the aerodynamics of the Peugeot 208. The top-end models have an SCx of 0.61 (Cx of 0.29). The 208 is amongst the very best in its category for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.


ECO-DESIGN

Recycling isn't just for bottles or cans. The 208 takes eco-design to the next level by incorporating recycled materials into major components like the rear bumper, steering wheel, seats and engine housing.


INTERIOR COMFORT

There's no point in your car looking stunning on the outside if it's humdrum inside. So we’ve gone the extra mile with the interior too. With the 208, Peugeot took the bold step of fully rethinking the interior of the vehicle.


INTERIOR DESIGN

The interior of the vehicle has a clean and modern design, in perfect harmony with the exterior. The dashboard design with its floating and graphic style, the air vents at each end of the dashboard in the shape of cat's eyes and the "faceted" elements are all evidence of the attention paid to every single detail.


SHAPE AND DESIGN

The driving position in the 208 has been fully modernised and completely redesigned. The 208's compact steering wheel lets you respond in a flash to whatever is happening on the road.

And with an eye-level instrument panel, there's no need to look away from the traffic when you’re on the road. These are just a couple of the touches designed to make the 208 more intuitive to drive than any Peugeot before it.


PANORAMIC ROOF WITH AMBIENT LIGHTING

The 208's panoramic glass roofi fills the interior with light and gives you great visibility. After dark the ambient lighting takes on a different mood – the cool white backlighting of the sporty analogue dials and controls gives them a crisp, hi-tech finish as well as making them easy to read, along with the blue diodes outlining the panoramic glass roof at night, with its "comet" effect.


TOUCH SCREEN

The 208 continues to innovate with its touch screen multimedia unit. Placed within arm’s reach, the 7" colour screen provides intuitive access to various functionalities: GPS navigationi, hands free Bluetooth® kit, USB port and audio streaming player.


PASSENGER SPACE

We've made the 208 much more spacious than its predecessor, the 207. That's partly due to the front and rear overhangs being reduced, lengthening the wheelbase.

As a result we've been able to provide more room for the driver and a more comfortable ride for every passenger.

And refining the design of the front seats has created more room behind, without sacrificing comfort.


AIR CONDITIONING

Automatic dual-zone climate control air conditioning, available with the Allure and Allure Premium versions, means you can have cool air keeping you alert as you drive while your passenger enjoys more warmth – or vice versa.

The car will automatically maintain the dual settings in response to any changes outside. Active models come with manual air conditioning.


ACOUSTICS

Road noise isn't part of the fun of driving, so the Peugeot 208 has been designed to reduce noise and vibration. Despite being much lighter, it's even quieter than its predecessor, the 207.


TECHNOLOGICAL DISPLAY

The instrument panel on the Peugeot 208 is highly technological, with analogue dials, as a reference to precision mechanics, a digital screen, and back-lighting adding overall purity and elegance.


TRIMS

The trim is broken down into four different styles that offer multiple personalities for a contemporary and elegant look.


TECHNOLOGY

Peugeot's designers have worked closely with engineering and electronics specialists to fill the 208 with technological innovations that make it both fun and safe for you to drive.


MULTI-FUNCTION COLOUR TOUCH SCREEN

Think of the 208's 7" multi-function colour touchscreen as mission control – it's where you call the shots on all the car's audio, communications and optional navigation equipment.

The screen comes as standard and gives you finger-tip control of the radio, music player, hands-free Bluetooth® and the optional sat-nav.


PEUGEOT CONNECT USB WITH BLUETOOTH®

The Peugeot Connect USB box lets you listen to tracks from an MP3 player or iPod through the 208's audio system, so you could have your entire music collection in the car with you.

Track listings appear on the touchscreen and, with Bluetooth®, you can also stream music wirelessly and use it to make and receive safe, hands-free phone calls.


REAR PARK ASSIST

Backing into a parking space is easy, thanks to the 208’s reverse parking sensors.

You’ll see a visual guide on the central touchscreen as well as hear audio signals, so you can glide right in.


FOLLOW ME HOME LIGHTING

The 208 comes with 'Follow me home' lighting - which means when you turn off your engine your lights can stay on for a short period (approximately 40 seconds) and then automatically turn off, allowing you to find your way to your door safely in the dark.


SAFETY

When you drive a 208, you might notice an extraordinary feeling of safety. It comes from a combination of superb road-holding, a substantial protective frame and multi-feature ESP braking system.


ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM (ESP)

All 208s come with the latest-generation Electronic Stability Program (ESP), including anti-locking brakes, dynamic stability control, emergency brake assist and electronic brake force distribution.

ESP intervenes in difficult driving conditions by applying braking to the individual wheels, helping to keep the car stable and avoid skidding.


AIRBAGS

To keep you as safe as possible, the 208 has six air bags as standard - two at the front, two front side and two full-length curtain airbags.


PASSIVE SAFETY

The frame of the 208 is designed to absorb the force of an impact, while the steering column will collapse to help prevent injury.


CRUISE CONTROL + SPEED LIMITER

Don't worry about going too fast in your 208 – just set the speed limiter and the car will automatically keep you legal.

And you can relax on long drives by activating the cruise control to help you stay at a constant speed.

Both the cruise control and speed limiter are controlled from the steering wheel or the touchscreen and let you have up to five pre-set speeds.


PERFORMANCE

Designed to be more efficient, lighter and more agile the Peugeot 208 uses the latest materials and engine technology to deliver lower fuel consumption and emissions.

CO2 EMISSIONS

We set out to build a car that had reduced environmental impact at the heart of its design, so cutting CO2 output was vital.

>This meant that advances in engineering and aerodynamics had to made. The 208's CO2 output is as low as 109g/km on the 1.2 manual.


NEW GENERATION 3 CYLINDER ENGINE

The new generation 1.2-litre 3-cylinder engine available on the new 208 means the engine is not only lighter, but also offers a real breakthrough in reducing both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions - which start at just 109 g/km.

This impressive engine also boasts a reduction in noise and vibration and increased performance, agility and responsiveness, which all adds up to a smoother and more comfortable journey for everyone.


OPTIMISED WEIGHT

We were determined to slim down the Peugeot 208. That meant a painstaking process of examining every component. Could it be made lighter? Redesigned? Was it needed at all? Construction techniques like laser welding were used to reduce the weight of joints while still ensuring strength.

High tensile strength sheet metal was used to quieten the engine without added excess weight. The result is that the 208 is on average 114kg lighter than the 207 it replaced.
