Peugeot released an official 3-minutes long video featuring Peugeot 208 design team explaining us how they shaped the bodywork of the newborn B-segment car.
The 208 represents a significant step forward for the French carmaker as it is definitely a huge improvement over the model it is going to replace, the 207. This ambitious car is smaller and yet more roomy than its predecessor, it is 110 kg lighter, boasts a more modern design and features many details that would make it a small-size premium model: LED technology for head and tail light, infotainment system and chrome finishing for instance.
Peugeot 208 is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012 in both 3 and 5 door configurations. The engine range consists of a 1.0 and a 1.2 three-cylinder petrol units (producing 68 hp and 84 hp respectively) with CO2 emissions of 87 g/km and a claimed average fuel consumption of 3,4 l/100 km, and a pair of no-better-specified turbocharged diesel units emitting less than 99g/km of CO2.
