2018 Peugeot 208 – Peugeot changed a lot when it changed from 207 to 208. The new car became much smaller and aimed at top-class rivals like the MINI Cooper.
When the car debuts in 2018, it will come with a new range of new engines, which will contain future small car technologies and will feature a brand new chassis. Peugeot’s declared goal is to become “the best high-end generalist brand” and to become higher and more luxurious than other automotive models in the supermini sector.
Auto Express currently has exclusive images of the new model 208, which shows that the car is stronger and more daring than the current model 2015 Peugeot 208. It also features Peugeot’s latest family face, with LED entertainment entertaining entertainment integrated with forward. The model still goes with the optional 3 or 5 doors.
The new, amazing new-generation profile featured in these images resembles an appearance similar to its older brother, the 308, which was launched in 2013. The length remains however at 4 meters, with shorter rear and front posts made possible because From the longer wheelbase, this will balance the interior of the car by providing more room for legs and head height. The extra length in the 2018 Peugeot 208 will come from the move to a brand new chassis.
Peugeot will refine the unique i-Cockpit installation. Inside, they will upgrade the central infotainment system to improve response speed and add even more connectivity to smartphones and other multimedia features.
The new range of exciting engines will include the new generations of PSA’s BlueHDi and PureTech diesel engines. The petrol versions will most likely be three-cylinder turbos, and they will have power between about 70 bhp and 150 bp for the 1.2-liter size. To appeal to drivers who want something faster, there will also be a new petrol engine 1.6 THP in GTi, which should offer about 220 hp.
It seems that the diesel range is increasing even more a new generation, reducing 1.6 liters of engines in 1.5, something that PSA does from the VW Group shares that have also reduced the engines of some of their recent models. The power outputs on the model will remain roughly the same between 75bhp and 120bhp, but CO2 emissions will probably be less than 75g / km only on eco-focused editions.
French sources have suggested that the new model will probably make its first public appearance at the Geneva auto show in the spring of 2018.
