The new Peugeot 208 will go on sale in June with prices starting from £14,500. Five diesels engines will be 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. Two of the petrol engines available will also be exempt from road tax. This means super low running costs for private buyers and company car drivers alike.
The Peugeot 208 has great handling and good refinement; it is capable of 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds and has a top speed of 118mph.
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. The car will feature a small steering wheel with a smart panoramic glass roof surrounded by neon like LED lights.
