Peugeo was ready for the 208

Peugeot had decided to reveal its 208 model. And we do like it very much, but the carmaker managed to spoil it for us with the 308 and its back end and the 3008. It seems that their nippy engines are being replaced with slow diesels.
A new model appeared on the scene, just after the 205 in the shape of the 208. This one is smaller and lighter than the 207. The customers will have the opportunity to buy it as a three- or a five-door. There is also room for a semi-convertible that uses the same layout like the 500C.
As these times the cars grow and grow, it's a little hard to believe the French carmaker decided to develop a car that weight only 975 kg.
Apparently it will be the best looking car in its class, close to the Citroen DS3. The elements that make it so special are the floating grille, the refreshed headlights and also a curvaceous profile with plenty of character. The two variants have different styles.
The steering wheel is now smaller as the instruments and controls have been de-cluttered. The carmaker said this model will be agile and in the same time will offer a lot of comfort.
As we said at the beginning, the 208 is one of the best models Peugeot has developed lately.
