Reliable, economical, compact and fun, the super-stylish Peugeot 108 is full of exciting technology and comes with a vast array of colourful interior and exterior themes. With dynamic lines and chic colour schemes it is finished off by Peugeot’s recognisable front end. The 108 is perfectly at home in the city, and with a tight turning radius it easily fits into the tightest spots.
The Peugeot 108 is just 3.5 metres long, and with its light handling plus all-round visibility, buzzing through traffic or squeezing into parking spaces is straightforward. The 108’s ‘floating’ chrome grille and narrow headlights have the look of Peugeot’s newest products, and the external boot hinges are now covered by a spoiler.
The Active model’s TOP! fabric roof is available in three colours to join the eight paint finishes and plethora of fun sticker packs. There are plenty of ways you can make this nippy model your very own.
With six interior ambiences and seven stylish personalisation themes, the 108 offers an abundance of choice on the inside too. All models gain electric front windows, power-steering, remote central locking and LED daytime running lights. Every variant except the entry-level 108 also offer air conditioning, a colour touchscreen, audio controls on the steering wheel, Bluetooth phone connection and a height-adjustable driver's seat. The higher-spec Allure gets a reversing camera, alloy wheels, automatic headlights and keyless go, while the top-spec Feline features luxurious automatic climate control and leather seats. The 108 soaks up rough roads with ease and blocks out exterior noise so passengers enjoy a more relaxing drive. Its roomy 196-litre boot with a low load level means it is easier to lift heavy items into the car.
Balanced, elegant and refined, the 108 combines driving pleasure with economy. With efficient three-cylinder engines in either 1.0-litre 67bhp or 1.2-litre PureTech with 81bhp, Peugeot’s 108 models are exempt from road tax. Fuel, insurance and maintenance costs are low, too. The 1.0-litre petrol engine can achieve 68.9mpg and emit just 95g/km of CO2, while the larger 1.2-litre engine is also frugal, managing 65.7mpg and emitting only 99g/km of CO2.
Winner of the 2015 'International Engine of the Year' award, Peugeot’s three-cylinder PureTech gives you the power and performance of a 1.6-litre engine but the efficiency of a smaller unit. From a standing start, the less powerful engine manages 60mph in approximately 14 seconds. The 1.2-litre powertrain does the same in 11 seconds.
The 108 was awarded four stars by Euro NCAP, scoring 80 percent for both adult and child occupant protection in line with a stringent new testing criteria. Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes, hill-start assist, electronic stability control, six airbags and two ISOFIX child-seat mounts. 108 Allure and Feline models can also come with a lane departure warning system, Active City Brake, and reversing camera.
