The New Peugeot 208 Exhibited at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show 2015

Three years after it was launched right here in Geneva, the new 208, which will be marketed from June 2015, is showcasing new ambitions via its updated exterior and interior style and, above all, more choice with new Euro 6 engine powers and unprecedented features.

The new Peugeot 208 come with a more energetic design. The exterior style becomes sleeker thanks to a larger grille and a chrome trim built in to the bumper; new black and chrome two-tone lights with a new LED light signature; new painted, diamond-effect or laser-engraved wheels; new LED 'claw effect' rear lights.

The interior features the i-Cockpit driving station with its compact steering wheel, heads-up instrument panel, and its large 7" touchscreen, has been updated. Among the major changes are the arrival of a soft-touch dashboard insert with a visual design; white backlighting for the instrument panel and controls; blue LED light guides for versions equipped with a panoramic roof; MirrorScreen, allowing you to duplicate a smartphone on the 7" touchscreen.

It also comes with a a range which offers more choices. With an already wide choice, the colour palette offered by the new Peugeot 208 has gained a new vibrant shade which will also feature as its launch colour, Orange Power.

Because no two customers are the same, exterior customisation packs from the grille to the door mirror covers will be accessible from level 2.

Already adopted by the Peugeot 308, 508 and RCZ, the new 208 range is also decked in the new GT Line finish. With 3 or 5 doors, and PureTech petrol or Diesel BlueHDi engines, the 208 GT Line borrows the sporty look of the GTi, for example, the exterior features the Equalizer grille, larger 17 inch wheels, and the black door mirror covers, and the inside, with its sport seats and steering wheel as well as the aluminium pedal unit, invites more dynamic driving.

A worthy heir of the Peugeot 205 GTi, which had its 30th anniversary commemorated with the 208 GTi 30th edition, 208 GTi by Peugeot Sport is making its appearance in the range: with 208 horsepower under the bonnet, Torsen® limited slip differential, large 330mm brake discs and an optional clean cut style, it is asserting itself as the most radical of the 208 range!

The new 208 also comes with new high-tech features such as to reduce the risks and severity of collisions in urban environments, the Peugeot 208 uses the new Active City Brake feature which is triggered below 30kph. Thanks to a sensor on the top of the windscreen, this safety feature – particularly useful in the city – automatically applies the brakes, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop if necessary.

Another new feature is the rear view camera, available as an optional extra from level 2 to make reversing easier.

The MirrorScreen feature, which first appeared in the 108, is also present in the 208. It allows you to duplicate your smartphone screen onto the vehicle's 7" touchscreen for better visual comfort when accessing phone, music, navigation apps and more.
