Peugeot has announced that its new Peugeot 208 supermini will start from £16,250.
The all-new hatchback is also being offered in all-electric form for the first time too, with the e-208. This is arguably the most important model in the new line-up, with this car’s 50kWh battery enabling a claimed range of 211 miles.
As for the standard 208, this comes with the option of three 1.2-litre petrol engines – producing 74bhp, 99bhp and 128bhp. Peugeot is also offering a 99bhp 1.5-litre diesel unit, which will be the most efficient engine in the range.
It’s available with three trim levels – Active, Allure and GT-Line.
Prices for the Allure start from £16,250, or £25,050 for the e-208. Standard equipment includes a seven-inch touchscreen, autonomous emergency braking, automatic climate control and LED daytime running lights.
Allure grade adds 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-effect upholstery, a digital instrument cluster and LED rear lights, with prices starting from £18,850 or £26,250 for the e-208.See Available Peugeot 208 deals
The range-topping GT-Line grade is exclusive to the e-208, with this trim adding adding front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, LED headlights and a sportier styling pack. The GT-Line costs from £29,650.
David Peel, managing director of Peugeot UK, said: “The all-new Peugeot 208 represents the first step in Peugeot’s vision of providing our customers with the ‘power of choice’ i.e. ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain.’
“With class-leading levels of technology, sharp styling and a distinctive driving experience, we expect the all-new 208 and the all-new e-208 to challenge the norm in this sector of the market.”
First deliveries of the new models are expected at the start of 2020.
