sgCarMart - Small Peugeots, starting from the 205 to the 206 and then the 207, have always been a hit. Following the end of the 207's lifespan, everyone was expecting its successor to be one of the best small Peugeot in years.
Unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Peugeot 208 is designed to rival the likes of the Ford Fiesta and Honda Jazz as well as many others in the compact segment with a blend of style and quality.
The Peugeot 208 signals the beginning of a new era for the French manufacturer and is a vast improvement over the car it replaces. Although the wheelbase is identical, exterior dimensions have actually shrunk, making the car smaller than its predecessor.
A two-staged approach was adopted for the 208 with two body types. The three-door and five-door are almost two separate cars and are designed to be different in order to appeal to a wider audience.
However, only the five-door will be available in Singapore. The 208 also joins Peugeot's lineup of diesel cars here with a 1.6-litre e-HDi variant.
