Smaller on the outside than 207 (7cm shorter and 1cm lower), 208 offers more room inside for rear passengers (+5cm at the knees) and a more generous boot (+15dm3 in volume). It weighs on average 110kg less than 207, leading to lower CO2 emissions and lower fuel consumption.
The 208’s interior will see a true break from what has gone before. An elevated instrument panel positioned directly in front of the driver gives information at a glance whilst a small steering wheel adds to driving enjoyment.
Available in both 3-door and 5-door hatchback and with a choice of three trims, Access, Active and Allure, all 208 models will come equipped with ESP and six airbags. 80% of sales are expected to be Active level two models.
The 208 engine range for Ireland will include a 1.0 litre 68bhp petrol model (99g/CO2), a 1.2 litre 82bhp petrol model (104g/CO2), a 1.4 litre 68bhp HDi diesel model (98g/CO2) and a 1.4 litre 68bhp eHDi diesel model (87g/CO2) with Stop Start technology. 65% of sales are expected to be petrol models. Achieving average CO2 emissions of 34g/km lower than the 207, the 208 will take the lead in its segment for lowest CO2 emissions.
Prices will be confirmed closer to the launch date
