With the Peugeot 208, Peugeot returned to its fetish niche of small vehicles to success. Since the Peugeot 205 announced in 1983, 200 numbers and a few have always brought luck to Peugeot. Almost 30 years ago, the success of the 205 had saved the sinking Lion brand.
And for that, it also degrees the cars. For the Peugeot 208, it was hunting weight. And it was also found that the lightweight construction was costing cheaper than the plump 207.
The Peugeot 208 is 7 cm shorter and lighter than a good hundred kilograms. The evidence, with the next 3 cylinders, it drops below the 100 g of CO2, a record for a petrol engine.
