Peugeot 208 XY

This last March, at the Geneva Motor Show, carmaker Peugeot revealed the 208 XY concept model. Now, the specialists have decided to offer the production version of the XY. Before the end of this month, at the Paris Motor Show, the model will show its face and join the performance 208 GTi. The new Peugeot 208 XY will be available in five new exteriors colors beside the existing ones, of course. Some of its best features are the mirror caps, window trim, fog lamp surrounds and chrome grille. To send the power to the road, the carmaker equipped the model with 17-inch diamond-Anthra Mercure multi-spoke wheels. The ones that want more should know that the carmaker is offering special decals for the roof as an option.

In terms of interior, designers have used leather to cover different surfaces, but not only this. The leather has contrast stitching that matches the exterior shade. The center parts of the sport seats are covered in Alcantara. The package prepared for the Peugeot 208 XY also includes aluminum pedals and very interesting mats. When it comes to the cabin, Peugeot offers leather and aluminum trims for the door handles, center console and for the dashboard as well.

Other new features include an infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, an automatic parking assist system and a lot others. In terms of engines, the Peugeot 208 XY will be available with five different units. The first one is a 1.6-liter e-HDi 92 FAP that uses a 5-speed manual transmission to send the power to the wheels. The CO2 emission level reaches 98 g/km. Then, there is the 1.6-liter e-HDi 92 FAP, but this time mated to a 6-speed piloted transmission that has the same CO2 emission level. The third option is the 1.6-liter e-HDi 155 FAP that uses a 6-speed manual gearbox with 99 g/km CO2 emission level. The 1.6-liter VTi 120 uses a 5-speed manual transmission and emits 134 g/km CO2. The last option is the 1.6-liter THP 155, that uses a 6-speed manual transmission to send the power to the wheels. The CO2 emission level was established at 135 g/km.
