Now available as a five-door model, the Peugeot 208 offers improved access for rear-seat passengers. This compact and stylish city car has been critically acclaimed for its levels of standard equipment and cost-effective engines. It is also one of the best low-emissions non-hybrid vehicles on the market.
The smart, modern-looking 208 features an appealing front-end with a tapering, subtly contoured bonnet, wraparound headlights and a radiator grille that bears the distinctive Peugeot hallmarks. Colour-keyed elements include door handles and power-operated and heated door mirrors. Illumination is provided by, among other things, daytime running lights, rear fog lamps and boomerang-shaped LED tail lights.
The five-person cabin features an adjustable driver’s seat and steering column, enabling you to establish your ideal position. Power-assisted steering, remote-controlled central door locking, power-operated front windows, air conditioning and a refrigerated glovebox are among the range of standard features. A 285-litre boot compares very favourably with others in the 208’s class, particularly as its capacity can be expanded to 1,152 litres.
A 1.0-litre 67bhp petrol engine and a 1.6-litre 74bhp diesel alternative are available with entry-level Access trims, both with five-speed manual transmission. The former delivers up to 64.2mpg and produces a CO2 emissions figure of 102g/km. The latter returns as much as 80.7mpg and a CO2 emissions figure as low as 90g/km.
A four-speaker sound system includes a CD player and radio, helping to soundtrack your journeys, and audio controls are mounted on the vehicle’s steering column. Bluetooth connectivity and USB and AUX ports are also included.
Driver aids include Cruise Control, Speed Limiter, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Programme and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. Six airbags, child-safety door locking, ISOFIX anchor points and seatbelt reminders are among the passive safety features that come as standard.
