The all-new Peugeot 208 will hit the UK showrooms in June 2012 in both 3 and 5-door formats, and with a wide range of petrol and diesel engines.

The 208 is not only much, much better-looking than the outgoing 207, it is also remarkably more efficient and cleaner. In fact thanks to the new range of three-cylinder engines, and e-HDi micro-hybrid Stop & Start System on virtually all versions, it achieves CO2 emissions of 34g/km lower than the 207.

Speaking of 3-cylinder engines, the 208 can be had with the 1.0- and 1.2-litre VTi, which are particularly efficient, with a range starting at 99g/km of CO2 (delivering 65.7mpg). The one liter is the one also put in the 107 city car.

The diesel range also includes some very good engines, including a 1.4 liter that;s capable of an incredible 83.1  mpg. Our favorite of the bunch is the 1.6 liter turbo petrol because it makes a very decent 156bhp while returning a respectable 48 mpg.

208 diesel range:

  • 1.4l HDi FAP 50kW (68bhp), 160Nm, 5-speed manual gearbox; CO2: 98g/km, 74.3mpg

As for the features, the fluffy hatchback comes with all the amenities you expect from a car of this class, plus a 7″ colour touch screen with carefully designed graphics (resolution 800 x 480) and intuitive operation.
