Peugeot Reveals 108 Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show
|   Thursday, February 27, 2014
Peugeot has put in a lot of effort and careful planning behind their latest 108, as this vehicle is expected to be one of the most fuel-efficient and light weight vehicle in range, when it is available across showrooms this March. Expected to be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show, their ultra efficient three-cylindered engine, has already managed to spice up various online forums. Weighing as low as 840 kg, this vehicle will be sold alongside products manufactured by Citroen and Toyota.


Measuring 3.47 x 1.6 mm (length x breadth), Peugeot is offering its 108 in three and five door layouts. Additional convertible versions will be offered within the coming months, while hardtop and fabric options should be available soon. Even though official prices are yet to be revealed, experts hint at a £1000 premium for its fabric model.

General styling is sophisticated and thoroughly polished, as compared to its outgoing model and this is Peugeot's way of designing a brighter future, spread across a large segment in mainstream car manufacturing. Tightly fitted headlamps and front grille make this vehicle looks similar to the 308, even though vast differences are actually in place. Peugeot has been designed vastly up-market products for the past couple of years and we are actually quite impressed with what in on offer.

Rear light cluster graphics along with a single piece tailgate design are in place, even though its interior is expected to be unveiled at Geneva. We will get back to you with a thorough review of this vehicle once it is officially unveiled. Hence, come back soon for latest information, reviews and news. As of now, we have been told of an LCD screen being in place, while a speedometer and tachometer have been neatly arranged.

More up-market features should be in place, although it is incorrect to speculate at this moment. Peugeot has however installed their all new Mirror Link Operating System, which has keyless entry, automated air conditioning and push start entry, while being compatible with Apple, Android and BlackBerry phones. This system can be operated via the touch screen, while various infotainment measures can be installed and activated via its central console.

Allure, Access and Active trim levels are in place, while plenty of customization options are in place. A small capacity three cylindered engine has been placed inside its hood and this is set to return superior fuel efficiency, along with lesser CO2 emission. An entry level engine emits just 97 g/km of CO2, which is expected to draw in better tax benefits. Even better figures should be available in other models, even as details wait to be revealed.

More powerful engine options are also on the cards and we have been told of a 1.2 liter VTi engine displacing 82 BHP, mated to a five speed automated / manual transmission systems. Standard safety measures are in place, along with a range of electronic driver aids, which can be turned off on will. Rear parking cameras also come with the standard package.
