The Peugeot 108 is a city car that offers lots of equipment in a competitive segment. It's also cheap to run and nice to drive.
The 108 has a choice of two engines; a 1.2 litre PureTech and a 1.0 litre unit, there's no diesel option available. Both engines have three cylinders and the 1.0 litre unit has economy of 74 mpg and emissions of 88g/km - helped with stop/start. The 1.2 litre unit should return 65mpg with emissions of 99g/km. Both engines perform well around town, they are nippy enough but can feel strained at high speed on motorways.
As city cars go, the Peugeot 108 is one of the more stylish and impressive offerings. It is, though, up against some very stiff competition but it's packed with a high level of equipment as standard and there's an excellent full length folding roof available as an option. The 108 is a very comfortable car to drive and most owners should get more than 60 mpg with everyday driving. Its closest contender is the VW up!, however, one of the reasons there is so much equipment on-board for the price tag is down to the fact that the chassis and many of the parts are being shared with the Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1. Of the trio, the 108 has the more distinctive styling and more upmarket feel.
From its chrome grille and LED headlights, this newest offering from Peugeot is an all-round impressive car. Equipment levels are excellent with remote central locking, electric front windows and daytime running lights coming as standard. Safety equipment includes six airbags, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard.
The 108 is the replacement for the popular Peugeot 107 and it's a big improvement, particularly in the cabin which is better designed and better made. Available in three and five door the variants, there's room for four adults and a bigger boot than the car it replaces. Getting large and heavy loads from the boot is straightforward because of the low boot lip.
Despite the competition, the Peugeot 108 continues to be a big sale success with owners praising it for running costs and its reliability.
