The new Peugeot 208 exceeds expectations

The new Peugeot 208 Supermini which went on sale on 28th June has now secured over 7,500 orders since order books opened.

Evolved through ‘regeneration’, the 208 combines all the virtues of its series predecessors, but with numerous extra attributes, being lighter, smaller (on the outside), bigger (on the inside) and more aerodynamic (than the 207) and with a new design style and appealing features that combine to make it attractive to customers.

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 208 is available in three and five door body styles, with ten engine options including new three cylinder versions, all of which achieve low CO2 emissions and high economy performance. The UK range also comes in a choice of five models – Access, Access+, Active, Allure and Feline with prices starting from £9,995 on the road.
