Buyer’s guide to the 2021 Peugeot 208 and e-208

Here’s what you need to know about this upmarket supermini and EV

Peugeot is a brand that has been transformed in recent years, becoming increasingly upmarket and able to rival some of the best brands in the business – including the likes of Mini and Volkswagen. 

With models like the 3008 and 5008, Peugeot has become seriously desirable, while the brand is only improving on that with new models such as the 208 supermini. 

This stylish and high-quality model is also now available as an EV - the e-208 - which expands this model’s appeal further.
