Peugeot 208 wins 2020 Fleet News Best Small Car Award

Peugeot is proving itself a leader in the small-car segment with the new 208. 

It’s the first to be offered with petrol, diesel and fully electric powertrains, all with class-leading refinement and driveability.

Sharp looks and bold colours help the new model to stand out, while its futuristic i-cockpit provides an interior that no rival can match.

All trim levels come well equipped and the latest driver assistance and convenience systems are available, including Peugeot Drive Assist for semi-autonomous driving. 

Petrol models are fun to drive, with good performance and efficiency.

For higher-mileage users, the BlueHDI diesel can achieve more than 70mpg.

Electric versions are almost indistinguishable from other 208s, yet they pack a 50kWh battery giving a range of more than 200 miles and a rapid-charging time of 0-80% in 30 minutes.

Competitive running costs and strong residual values ensure the new model holds favour with fleet managers, while the car’s capabilities and style boost its desirability among drivers.

Finalists: Audi A1, Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 208, Renault Clio, Vauxhall Corsa, Volkswagen Polo

Highly commended: Vauxhall Corsa

Award sponsored by: Athlon
