The new Peugeot 208 goes on sale in June with prices starting from £11,600. The 1.2 VTi is a cracking car capable of 0-62mph in 12.2 seconds and a top speed of 108mph. CO2 emissions are approximately 104g/km and the car returns 62.7mpg on the combined cycle. This car is fun to drive and capable of conferring performance quite beyond its modest output.
Five diesels engines are also offered all of which will be below the road tax threshold of 100g/km of Co2 emissions with one of the diesels only producing just 89g/km emissions and returning 81.3mpg.
The interior of the new Peugeot 208 is of a similar standard to the Ford Fiesta, there are piano black panels on the dash, metallic edging on the switches and a hi-tech touchscreen multimedia system. The car will feature a small steering wheel with a smart panoramic glass roof surrounded by neon like LED lights.
