Introducing the Peugeot 108
The Peugeot 108 city car is a favourite among UK motorists who want a car that's brimming with character and affordable to run.
Despite the reasonable asking price, you get grown up driving manners and a load of desirable tech. The generosity extends to the safety equipment Peugeot have chucked in as standard, too.
The chic and compact styling is guaranteed to win you compliments from family and friends, who will appreciate the 108's unique characteristics. You even get a number of eye-catching body colours to choose from.
Icing on the cake comes in the form of Peugeot's latest engine technology, which returns outstanding economy and reduces your carbon footprint.
Design and Practicality
The wonderful thing about the 108 is just how many different combinations and styles you can choose from. The bountiful selection of colours all enhance the subtle lines and features of the compact 108. Better yet, those zingy colours can continue into the cabin if you want!
Practicality isn't the forte of any city car, but the 108 manages to maximise the space it does have. You can spec five doors if you regularly use the rear seats, while passengers in the rear won't be too cramped because of the high roof line.
With the rear seats up, there's 196 litres of boot space, which is enough for a weekly food shop. Fold the seats down and you get 780 litres at your disposal; ideal for the occasional tip run.
Technology and Safety
The days of spartan interiors and unrefined driving experiences are gone for city cars, because the 108 is packed with technology and safety equipment.
Sitting amongst the stylish and colourful cabin design, the 7-inch capacitive touchscreen (model dependent) offers excellent connectivity and comes with Bluetooth and DAB radio.
Opt for an 'Active' model or higher and you get PEUGEOT Mirror Screen®, which means Android smartphone users can easily access their phone's apps for things like music and satellite-navigation. Apple users have similar access thanks to the inclusion of Apple CarPlay.
Standard safety features include:
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
- Hill start assist
- Front and rear curtain airbags
- Tyre pressure sensor
- Anti-lock brakes (ABS)
Economy and Performance
Peugeot have kept it plain and simple with the 108, because you get the choice of one petrol engine; a very good one it is too!
It's a 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine that produces 72 bhp. This may not sound much, but the 108 is a light vehicle that benefits from the engine's punchy nature. In short, this compact city car is surprisingly peppy on the open road, and can exploit gaps in traffic with ease.
Fuel economy of up to 58.9 mpg on a combined cycle (WLTP) is achievable with relative ease, while emissions never climb over 117 g/km (Co2).
Choose between a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed semi-automatic gearbox. Either way, you'll benefit from slick gear changes and excellent efficiency.
