Peugeot continues revamping its entire lineup with a new generation of better-looking, clever, and more fun cars, introducing the new 108 city car. Set for world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the all-new Peugeot 108 comes in two flavours: a hatchback and a convertible with retractable fabric roof called 108 TOP!.

The 108 is even more compact than the new Renault Twingo we showed you earlier. It measures 3.47m long and 1.62m wide, and has a turning circle of just 9.6m. There are virtually no overhangs at all around the wheels, which makes the car easier to park. Everything about the Peugeot 108 in fact is designed to make it a top city car.

Of course, a good city car must be very fuel efficient. The 108 does not disappoint in that sense, either. It comes with a lineup of four three-cylinder engines: 1.0-litre e-VTi 68bhp 5-speed manual; 1.0-litre VTi  68bhp 5-speed manual; 1.0-litre VTi 68bhp 5-speed electronic; and 1.2-litre PureTech VTi 82bhp 5-speed manual. All these models are sub-100 g/km CO2-wise.

The 840 kg city car offers 180 liters of luggage space with a spare tire, or 196 liters if you opt for the repair kit instead. The initial volume can be extended to 750 litres by folding the 50/50 rear seat backrests forward. There are also lots of cubbyholes and pockets inside the vehicle.

With a funky and cutesy design dominated by Peugeot’s new corporate look at the front, the 2015 Peugeot 108 offers a ton of personalization options. You get 8 exterior colors with two Purple Berry and Zircon Grey two-tone jobs; three retractable fabric roof colours – Black, Grey or Purple Berry; seven personalisation themes; three interior ambiences; and a choice of six trims.

Peugeot 108 is a sophisticated little car, featuring a standard infotainment with a 7-inch screen, and smartphone integration via MirrorLink technology for telephones running on Android, RIM and Windows, and by AppInCar for telephones running on Apple’s iOS.
