The award winning new Peugeot 208 supermini is already in great demand. Over 7500 orders have been secured since order books opened.
Morgan Lecoupeur, Marketing Director at Peugeot UK, said “there has been an incredible and positive response to the new 208, illustrated by the initial 7,500 orders. It really has been a tremendous start for the car, as it was also named ‘Best Supermini’ at the Auto Express Awards during the first week of launch. The 208 also obtained five stars from Euro NCAP, certifying its safety credentials, and was the first car in its segment to achieve this following the introduction of more demanding review criteria.”
The Peugeot 208 range is offered in five trim levels
Access, Access+, Active, Allure and Feline - with an exciting ‘Ice Velvet’ Limited Edition. The car is available in both 3 and 5 door body style variants. The interior of the 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.
Prices start from just £9,995 on the road and offers from Peugeot on the 208 in September include the popular Just Add Fuel® scheme, available to new car buyers from 21 years of age, with three years’ fixed price insurance, servicing, warranty, road tax and roadside assistance. ‘Just Add Fuel’® represents real peace of mind motoring with a 208 3dr Access 1.0-litre VTi from £208 per month.
