Geneva Motor Show 2014: Peugeot 108, A Car For A New Generation Of Drivers
|   Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Peugeot unveils at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show the new city model Peugeot 108 in two bodywork versions: hatchback and convertible with retractable fabric roof.

Peugeot launches the new 108 model for 2014 and for the first time the city model is available in two distinct bodywork versions: 108 hatchback model with 3 or 5 doors and 108 Top!, with a retractable roof (76 cm long and 80 cm wide) .

With a length of 3.47 meters and a width of 1.
2 meters, the new Peugeot 108 has a compact size, which certainly counts in urban areas. The new architecture has allowed the reduction of consoles, and a turning radius of just 9.6 meters, as well as a raised seat position forward, providing better visibility in all directions.

The trunk is large for its segment - 196 liter with a repair kit, or 180 liters with a spare wheel. The initial volume can be extended to 750 liters by folding down the rear seat (a 50 / 50 split).

The French manufacturer claims that the new Peugeot 108 is one of the lightest vehicles in its segment, with a weight of just 840 kg.


Compared to the current model, the new Peugeot 108 looks more refined in design thanks to details taken from the new Peugeot 308. The front side is dominated by the bold grille and nicely integrated headlamps into the bodywork line. Available on all versions, the headlamps with a "technical" design have the black and chrome combination to thank for the more dynamic look. The upper part contains the daytime running lights with LEDs.

The convertible version was equipped with an aero-acoustic wind deflector that extends automatically to decrease the turbulence in the cabin.

The new Peugeot 108 brings a new era in urban car connectivity through its touch screen which dominates the large middle panel. Active standard equipment, the 7-inch screen connects the driver and car, providing an interface for the audio system, the trip computer and other settings of the vehicle.

Using a Bluetooth connection, the mobile phone can be accessed. The driver can connect phone applications that are compatible with the use in the car, through the Mirror Screen function. This uses the MirrorLink technology for Android and Windows phones and AppInCar for those with iOS from Apple. This means that the touch screen on the new Peugeot 108 becomes a mirror image of the connected smartphone. Depending on the application, it can be used with voice commands too.

The new Peugeot 108 arrives on the market in 2014 with two engines, in the following configurations: 1.0 e-VTi 68 hp (manual transmission, 5-speed, emissions of 88 g / km, Stop & Start system included), 1.0 VTi 68 hp (5-step box, 95 g/km CO2), 1.0 VTi 68 hp (electronic 5-speed gearbox, 97 g/km CO2), and the 1.2 VTi 82 hp PureTech (5-speed gearbox, and 99 g/km CO2 emissions). 

Depending on the version, the Peugeot 108 is equipped with 14 inch wheels with 165/65 R14 tires or 15 inch 165/60 R15 tires, continuously monitored for optimum pressure via the Tyre Under-Inflation Detection control system. All versions have standard "hill start" system, as well as ABS, EBD, ESP, six airbags, and ISOFIX rear seat.
