Easy, intuitive technology gives the PEUGEOT 208 5-door a head-start when it comes to driving pleasure, efficiency and safety.
Active City Brake (not available on Active) is a new technology which makes it possible to avoid an accident or reduce its severity if the driver fails to react. It works in urban conditions at speeds of less than 30 km/h. A short range sensor is fitted to the top of the windscreen and can detect other vehicles that are driving in the same direction or stationary. This will automatically trigger an emergency brake to stop the vehicle and avoid a collision entirely or limit the consequences of an accident by reducing the speed of impact.
The City Park Assist system (optional on Allure and GT Line) assesses the space available to ensure that your car will fit. Ultrasonic sensors and steering management take over to manoeuvre in and out of the parking space for you. Acceleration, braking, gear changes and use of the clutch in a manual transmission are left in your control. As you manoeuvre, the system gives you visual and audio information to ensure your safety.
The reversing camera automatically activates when you select reverse gear and lets you view the area behind the car as you manoeuvre.
With a total length of less than four metres, the 208 is agile and exceptionally easy to handle – the ideal recipe for enjoyable driving.
The new 208 is bursting with technology. Its multi-function colour touch screen acts as mission control, providing access and finger-tip control of all the car's audio, communications and navigation (optional on Active, standard on Allure and GT Line).
USB and Bluetooth® functionality is supported for most smartphones, accessed from the 7" touch screen.
PEUGEOT Mirror Screen accesses compatible apps from your smartphone on the touch screen of the vehicle. It is available exclusively on the 208 Active Special Edition. Compatible Mirror Screen apps are dedicated to your pleasure while being on the road.
Mirror Screen is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems, thanks to MirrorLink®; and Apple CarPlay™. The Mirror Screen feature requires no subscription or subscription fees.
Designed for drivability and performance, PEUGEOT PureTech engines combine efficiency with cutting-edge technology.
It takes the best that the market has to offer and finds the perfect balance between torque and power at low revs. This advance in technology generates a 25% saving in fuel consumption and reduces CO₂ emissions compared to a vehicle with equivalent power and torque.
Combined with the automatic EAT6 6-speed gearbox, the 81kW PureTech turbo with Stop and Start technology emits CO₂ emissions of only 104 g/km, making it the benchmark for automatic petrol engines in the segment.
Every touchpoint of the 208 is designed to give you an outstanding experience.
From the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit and its compact steering wheel to the wheelbase, every component is optimised to ensure enhanced responses and the ideal balance of comfort and superb road holding.
Why waste fuel if you're waiting at a red light or in traffic?
PEUGEOT's Stop & Start system senses when you come to a halt and stops the engine – then starts it again as soon as you want to move off.
It means you use less fuel and produce up to 15% less CO₂ while driving in the city.
When the brake pedal is released, the engine is instantly restarted, with no noise or vibrations.
