The new Peugeot 208 2019 model year has already pleased us with his presence in Geneva. You can now enjoy too

One of the main world premieres at the Geneva International Auto Show is the new Peugeot 208. Stylish, compact and modern. Looks like this hatchback is armed to the teeth. Even there is a completely electric version, can you imagine?

The previous generation Peugeot 208 arrived on the conveyor in 2012. You have to agree that seven years is sufficient time to introduce a successor. This happened at the Geneva International Auto Show! And, it seems, our expectations were not in vain – the Peugeot hatchback arrived with a bright design, stylish interior and modern technology.

Peugeot 208 2019 Design

The first loyalty points from customers will definitely win the French hatchback due to its appearance. The bright design is dictated by the memorable features of the older models – the Peugeot 508 and the Peugeot 3008 crossover. Here we see the predatory squint of head optics, the “fangs” of running lights and a large false radiator grille.

Behind – the original solution of the lamps, combined in a solid block with a glossy black panel. In general, the look turned out to be dynamic and even aggressive. What you need for young buyers.

Peugeot 208 2019 Interior

Inside we are met by a very bold design. First of all, attention is drawn to the branded multi-level front panel with original finishing materials, embossed “under the carbon.” Boldly!

Of course, one cannot escape from the recognizable instrument panel (digital) and the “mounted” monitor of the i-Cockpit multimedia system.

Engines new Peugeot 208

The new Peugeot 208 received a 1.2-liter gasoline engine with a power of 75 hp. (5-speed manual transmission). In the future, there will be a 100-strong version (6-speed manual transmission or 8-speed automatic transmission) and a 130 hp engine. Also proposed is a 1.5-liter 100 hp diesel engine, paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Electric Peugeot e-208

The most powerful was the electric modification of the hatchback. Electric Peugeot equipped with a 136-horsepower motor and battery pack with a capacity of 50 kWh. As a result, the novelty is ready to overcome 340 km through the WLTP cycle, and it takes only 8.1 s to accelerate to 100 km / h. Thanks to fast 100-kilowatt charging, the new electric car is able to fill 80% of the charge in 30 minutes.
