Peugeot  208 XY

Two new concepts that have as base the new 208 super-mini will be revealed by Peugeot: the sporty GTi and the 208 XY concept car. The body has a crimson finish and it will be very hard to mistake it. Why? Well, its purple color actually changes depending on the angle which you view the car. The model is powered by a 1.6-liter e-HDi diesel engine that is capable of delivering 115 horsepower, a very economically one. The 208 XY runs on dual-effect 18-inch alloy wheels, so no space-saver tires. On the inside everything leaves us speechless. It features a mix of black and violet leather with crimson stitching on the gear lever gaiter and sides, armrests, steering wheel rings, dashboard and also with stripes on the floor mats and seat inserts. When it comes to the roof, well, the carmaker offers a panoramic roof edge-trimmed in black leather.
