Official pictures and details of the all-new Peugeot 208 hit the web, revealing the car earlier than expected.
Peugeot had said before the new car will be a re-generation, which must mean the 208 is going to be the new 206, with the same striking design. While it looks pretty darn good, we’re not sure it’s a classic design like the 206. It’s too chintzy somehow!
But let’s not get bugged down on the 206, and look at the 208 a an all-new French chic hatchback that it is. There are lots of details in the car’s design, some good, some not very good. Peugeot is introducing a Citroen level of attention to details with the new car.
That is not surprising, as it is to all intents and purposes, a Citroen DS3. Not only it looks like it, it is also the same size as its sibling and uses the same engine lineup in which there is lots of HDi cleverness going on.
We are waiting for Peugeot’s official materials, but for now you can take a deeper look at the pictures of the new 208. After the rather disappointing 207, it is actually quite good.
