The revised Peugeot 208 is available to order now ahead of the registration change on the 1st of September, and is expected to arrive in dealerships soon after.
When launched in 2012, the 208 was an advanced and highly innovative vehicle. However, it has now received an overhaul with upgrades seen to the engine, bodywork and on-board safety equipment.
The ultra efficient engine range comes in both petrol and diesel in a number of specifications. Peugeot's critically acclaimed BlueHDi technology claims to be the most effective emission control system on the market and means every diesel 208 has CO2 emissions of below 95g/km.
The 1.6-litre 75 S&S diesel engine, coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox is capable of an astonishing 94.2 mpg, with CO2 emissions of just 79 g/km.
The revised petrol-engine line-up promises high mileage and low running costs. New PureTech three-cylinder units are now available in the 208 in either 1.0-litre 68hp or 1.2-litre 82hp formats.
The exterior of the 208 has received numerous detail changes, including sharper and more precise lines and a wider grille to the front of the vehicle, whilst the rear LED light clusters have been redesigned to incorporate Peugeot's signature 3D 'claws' motif. Wheels come in either 16 or 17-inch and are available in a choice of painted, diamante and laser-engraved finishes.
Inside the cabin of the hatchback, Active City Brake, manual air conditioning and Bluetooth come as standard, whilst Park Assist and a reversing camera are available as a combined option in the Allure trim level.
