Used Peugeot 208 for sale
Launched in 2019, this particular version of the Peugeot 208 really takes the car to the next level in terms of head-turning style and cutting-edge tech.
It's not just a pretty face either, scooping the highly coveted European Car of the Year for 2020. So, if you were looking for a short answer for whether or not this generation of 208 is any good, well, this award sure tells you a lot.
Other than being an award-winner, the 208 features:
- Stunning looks, inside and out
- Decent, economical engines
- Cutting-edge technology
- Hatchback practicality
But what else makes this generation of Peugeot 208 a great used car? Discover the reasons below.
Engines and Driving Experience
A selection of 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines are available, with either 75bhp, 100bhp or 129bhp, along with a 1.5-litre 100bhp diesel engine too.
Petrol models are capable of between 44 and 53mpg, depending on version selected, whilst unsurprisingly, the diesel is the most economical with up to 73mpg possible. A fully-electric 208 is also available with over 200 miles of range possible, with 80% charge available in as little as 30 minutes via the use of a 100kW public fast-charger.
Thanks to a small steering wheel, a trait which can be seen in the previous version of the 208, this newer version feels very nimble and responsive at lower speeds - making it excellent around town. It's good on other roads too and it genuinely communicates an overall sound driving experience.
Practicality and Running Costs
This particular 208 now comes with 5-doors as standard. There is also a large boot, with 311 litres of space on offer - making it roomier than the best-selling Ford Fiesta by 19 litres. Fold the seats, and the space increases even further to 1,106 litres.
To run, the Peugeot 208 is nice and frugal, with the option of an electric version also promoting further miniscule running costs - although charging from a domestic plug is very slow, when compared to a public fast charger. The petrol and diesel versions still offer excellent economy, and so running any 208 shouldn't break the bank.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Interior wow factor of the Peugeot 208 is strong, with lots of soft-touch material and intricate details all over the cabin. In Allure models and above, you get the impressive 3D version of the Peugeot i-Cockpit.
A 7 or 10-inch central infotainment touchscreen is also available, again dependent on spec, to really ensure the cabin is great place to spend time when behind the wheel. There is also DAB, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity coming as standard on each model, too.
A whole host of safety features come with the 208, which include items such as adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and blind spot monitoring - again, dependent on specification chosen.
Is the Peugeot 208 right for me?
If you want to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons, the Peugeot 208 could well be the answer if you are in the market for a decent, compact hatchback.
Stunning to look it, both inside and out, and in some instances more practical than the best-selling Ford Fiesta, mean it's certainly worth a look. It certainly is attractive, and will suit those wanting something a little different to the textbook hatchback.
The electric version is also very interesting, and represents great value as a used car. A test drive should give more clarity - contact your local Evans Halshaw Peugeot to test drive a used 208 today.
