The 208 GT Line comes with an extensive level of standard equipment and is available in three and five-door iterations. A supermini with a lot to offer, the 208 GT Line is an attractive and cost-effective car with a surprisingly roomy cabin.
The 208 GT’s eye-catching front-end is distinguished by a stunning gloss-black grille highlighted by distinctive red 3D markings. This provides a sharp contrast to the main body, as do electric, heated and folding door mirrors encased in smart gloss-black shells. Dark-tinted rear windows, 17-inch Caesium alloy wheels and a single chrome exhaust pipe add further touches of style, as does the vehicle’s GT Line badging. Lighting includes cornering-assist fog lights, LED daytime running lights and rear LED lamps.
The cabin features black and red GT Line seats, embellished with red contrast stitching. The sporty interior is further enhanced by a leather sports steering wheel and aluminium pedals and door sill finishers. Standard features include remote-controlled central locking, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, a refrigerated glovebox and electric front windows. Five-door models also feature electric rear windows. A minimum 285-litre boot capacity can be increased to 1,152 litres when rear seats are folded.
The 208 GT Line comes with a range of engine choices. A 1.2-litre 81bhp petrol unit delivers up to 65.7mpg and a 99g/km CO2 emissions figure. A 1.6-litre 74bhp diesel alternative returns an impressive 94.2mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 79g/km. The latter option is definitely worth considering for drivers who typically clock up a lot of miles.
A DAB digital radio and CD player provide in-car entertainment, with audio controls mounted on the steering column. Bluetooth connectivity and USB and AUX ports are also included, as is a seven-inch multi-function touchscreen display.
Driver assist tools include a rear-parking aid, Cruise control with Speed Limiter, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Programme and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
Child-safety door locking, seatbelt reminders and six airbags are among the GT Line 208’s passive safety features.
