Whatcar? Review


The Peugeot 208 has a classy cabin and is available with some very efficient petrol and diesel engines.


The ergonomics are poor, rear space is tight and many of the 208’s rivals are better to drive.


The 208 looks the part inside and out. Most versions are cheap to own, too, but it’s compromised in too many key areas.


The 208 has a wide choice of engines, and the entry-level 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit is the only one that’s not worth recommending. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrols are all strong enough, even if they need to be revved to get the most from them, while the powerful 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol makes the GTi model one of the quickest hot hatches around. The three 1.6 HDI diesel models all have useful torque; each is flexible and the highest-powered version is pretty swift.

Ride & Handling

The 208 handles securely and is easy to drive, with light steering that makes it a doddle to park. It falls a long way short of the best cars in the class for driving appeal, however, with quite a bit of body lean through corners and very little sensation through the steering wheel. The ride is firm, too, especially on versions with larger alloy wheels. The GTi grips well, but it’s nowhere near as entertaining as a Ford Fiesta ST.


In some respects the 208 scores well for refinement, because it does a better job than most superminis of keeping wind and road noise to a minimum. The suspension thumps noisily over bumps, however, and the manual gearshift on all but GTi models is unsatisfyingly notchy. The ETG automated transmission can be jerky, too. The 1.2 petrol engines are reasonably quiet but the 1.0 petrol and diesel engines get loud when they are worked hard.

Buying & Owning

The 208 is keenly priced and, like for like, undercuts many of its rivals. Showroom discounts are likely to be generous, too, while residual values will be solid, if not as good as those of an Audi A1 or Mini. Peugeot’s ‘just add fuel’ packages are a good way of spreading ownership costs, although there are certain age limits. All but GTi versions are very efficient, with excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.

Quality & Reliability

With its chic design, plush materials and generally good build quality the 208 has one of the classiest cabins of any small car. Only premium-badge rivals eclipse it. Long-term mechanical reliability is another matter – in our latest customer satisfaction survey Peugeot finished 12th out of 26 manufacturers, and the 208 was near the bottom of table in the small car category. Electrical issues were the main bugbear. Warranty cover is a standard three years or 60,000 miles.

Safety & Security

Safety kit is good, with six airbags as standard, while an active city braking function is a cheap option for most models. Euro NCAP awarded the 208 a full five-star rating when tested in 2012. Every 208 comes with deadlocks, but only GTi variants have an alarm as standard. Security experts rated the 208’s resistant to break-in theft as merely average, but it scored well enough for its resistance to being driven away.

Behind The Wheel

The 208’s interior is a case of style over substance. The novel dash layout – which features instruments mounted above an unusually small steering wheel – doesn’t work for everyone, leaving too many drivers with an obscured view. The touchscreen fitted to most models is also far too fiddly. Forward visibility is good and the driving position is fine, while there’s lots of adjustment for the seats and steering wheel. Only the sports seats of the GTi offer decent side and thigh support, however.

Space & Practicality

There’s plenty of space in the 208’s front seats, with decent head room and leg room. Many rivals offer a lot more space in the back, though – leg room is acceptable but head room is tight. The boot is an average size and it’s well shaped. The entry-level model has a one-piece rear backrest, while all other models have 60/40 split/folding rear seat backs. A flap means that there’s no step in the floor when they’re folded but they don’t go totally flat. In-cabin storage for clutter is meagre.


Entry-level Access A/C trim gets you a low price, but not a lot of kit. Air-conditioning and Bluetooth are included but there are no alloy wheels and a fixed rear bench. It’s worth paying more for Active trim - it features 15in alloy wheels, a touchscreen infotainment system, DAB radio, a leather steering wheel and 60/40 split rear seats. Allure and GT line trims add luxury features but push the price up too high. Range-topping GTi models have all the standard kit you could expect.
