Peugeot 208 Video Review
This much improved Peugeot 208 hatchback represents Peugeot more strongly in the supermini segment and the three-cylinder 1.2-litre 82bhp PureTech petrol engine many will want is an absolute cracker. If you thought the days of small, modestly priced hatches that painted a big smile on your face had gone, you need to try this car.
Peugeot always used to provide us with small cars that were fun to drive and in recent years, the company has been showing signs of a return to that happy place. The launch of the 208 supermini was a big step forward in that regard and the car’s prospects have certainly been aided by the willing three cylinder 1.0 and 1.2-litre PureTech petrol options available at the bottom of the range.
It’s the base 1.2-litre version we look at here, a car with 82bhp on tap and a willing, revvy nature. Combine that with the smarter looks and extra hi-tech connectivity of this lately improved model and you’ve the potential for a tempting recipe.
