New sporty Peugeot 208 set to stand out

To mark 208 years in business, French car maker Peugeot has unveiled the first images of its new 208 range, which is due in Ireland in early 2020.

The new Peugeot 208 is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor, revealing a distinctive bodyline and clean, taut lines. Wide shaped wings, body curves, a pared-back windscreen and a longer, sculpted bonnet underscore the sporty look, whilst the familiar Peugeot full LED 3-claw headlight signature, dependent on trim, is immediately recognisable.

The front bumper contains a perfectly-integrated, single outlet radiator grille in the centre, bearing the iconic Peugeot Lion. The tip of the bonnet shows off the 208 badge.

Mirroring the Peugeot 3008, 5008 and new 508 range, the rear end of the new Peugeot 208 stands out with a black band running the width of the boot lid, linking the 3-claw daytime running lights. The rear spoiler is available in a gloss black finish and, depending on the engine variant, may be enhanced by a chrome exhaust tail pipe.

In addition to standard body colours and the optional Black Diamond roof, new Peugeot 208 is on offer with a range of tints to reflect the vehicle’s energetic character: Faro Yellow; triple coat Vertigo Blue; Elixir Red with colour top-coat that deepens the depth of colour.
