Peugeot updates its popular 208 model
August 1, 2022
Peugeot has updated its popular 208 model with enhanced specification along with a new trim structure, and orders for the new car are now open.
From now onwards, Active Premium+ and Allure Premium+ models replace current Active Premium and Allure Premium, with no pricing changes on either trim level relating to their enhanced specification. GT and GT Premium models remain the same.
Entry level Active Premium+ models now come with dark tinted rear and rear side windows for a more stylish appearance. For greater comfort and convenience, all Active Premium+ models are fitted standard with automatic windscreen wipers and automatic air conditioning.
Allure Premium+ models receive the Aluminium Pack, which adds subtle styling updates such as an aluminium finish on the pedals and front door sills. Inside, Allure Premium+ models now feature a new 7-inch touchscreen with Peugeot Connected 3D Navigation. This forms part of the brand’s innovative i-Cockpit, which also consists of a compact multi-function steering wheel and configurable 3D head-up digital instrument panel.
The 208 range is available with petrol, diesel or fully electric powertrains, giving customers the ‘Power of Choice’ to find the option best suited to their needs.
In addition to advanced 1.2L PureTech engines and an efficient 1.5L BlueHDi diesel, customers can opt for the zero-emissions-in-use e-208, which is powered by a 50kWh battery and 100kW electric motor for up to 225 miles of range (WLTP). Supporting up to 100kW rapid charging, a 0-80 per cent boost can be completed in just 30 minutes.
The 208 and e-208 can be purchased in-store from Peugeot retailers and via Peugeot’s Buy Online platform. Buy Online allows customers to configure, finance, and order their next vehicle entirely from the comfort of their home, as well as obtain a part-exchange valuation on their current vehicle. Customers can also schedule a one-on-one live video tour of vehicles they’re interested in via the virtual showroom.
