Peugeot 208 is a very likeable all-rounder
The supermini market is big business. Since none of them are actually that mini these days they actually make fine all-rounders for single people and young couples, and the number sold every year reflects that.
Peugeot has renewed its assault on the sector with a bit of fresh thinking – relatively speaking. The size and weight increases from 205 to 206 to 207 have been reversed with the new 208. The basic model at launch is one solitary kilogram heavier than the entry-level 206 was.
It’s also 7cm shorter than the 207, a little less tall and slightly narrower, but despite the extensive surgery there’s more interior space. The doors have had unnecessary thickness taken out of them, the seats have been slimmed slightly and the space has just generally been used more effectively.
