Peugeot announces pricing & specs for new 108

Priced from £8,245 on the road, the new city car is available in three and five-door hatch or TOP! Cabrio body styles and with a choice of two fuel-efficient and low-emissions petrol engines. These include Peugeot’s recently unveiled PureTech naturally aspirated three-cylinder unit.

Personalisation will be a key element of the 108’s appeal to customers, with a huge range of colours, ambiences, trims and themes. The 108 also brings new comfort and convenience features to the city car sector. These include a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with DAB digital radio, Mirror Screen with MirrorLink technology and Bluetooth connectivity for smartphones and the safety benefit of steering wheel-mounted controls.

The car is available in Peugeot’s familiar four trim levels – Access, Active, Allure and Feline. On the 108 Hatch, Access is only available on three-door models. Standard features include LED daytime running lights, remote central locking, USB/aux connection for external audio players with steering wheel-mounted controls, six airbags, ESP stability control and two rear ISOFIX mountings.

The top-spec Feline trim adds features including leather upholstery, chrome door handles and mirrors and automatic dual zone air conditioning.

The new 108 marks Peugeot’s first use on a city car of a retractable fabric roof, which can be opened and closed electrically at any speed. Called the 108 TOP!, it’s available in Active and Allure trims. Active cars have colour-coded door handles and mirrors, manual air conditioning, electric front windows, height adjustable driver’s seat, 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Mirror Screen, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth and steering wheel-mounted controls.

Both the 108 Hatch and TOP! come with a choice of two petrol engines. They are a 1.0-litre 68bhp with 95g/km of CO2 (88g/km with Stop and Start), or a 1.2-litre PureTech VTi 82bhp with 99g/km of CO2. A five-speed manual transmission is mated to both engines, with the option of a 2-Tronic semi-automatic gearbox on the 1.0-litre.

Prices start at £8,245 on the road for the PEUGEOT 108 Hatch 1.0-litre Access three-door. Active models begin at £9,495, Allure at £10,995 and Feline at £11,845. 108 TOP! Cabrio models are priced from just £10,345 for the 1.0-litre Active three-door (a £850 premium from the equivalent Hatch version), rising to £12,245 for the 1.2-litre Allure five-door.

The new Peugeot 108 will be officially on sale in the UK from 1st July 2014.
