The 208 revolutionises customer choice in the supermini sector with its compact, economic, well-equipped and stylish. At the wheel, the driver quickly feels at one with the car, discovering a pleasant driving experience the like of which they have not had before. The 208 is also shaking up the Premium segment ... with the 208 XY and 208 GTi introducing the qualities of comfort, versatility and occupant space. These two distinctive versions make their mark with strong and differentiated expressions.

A few weeks from their launch, the 208 XY - an exclusive and urban chic vehicle - and the 208 GTi - which brings a legend back to life – will be on display at Geneva, and the jewels of a now complete 208 range.  

With three-door body styles, strong exterior identities, distinctive headlight signature on their front face, exclusive 17" wheels, sophisticated working of the materials and colours, special interior ambiances: even before the ignition is switched on the 208 XY and 208 GTi are expressed with a sculpted, athletic and elegant Peugeot style, and both have the ability to turn heads.

Driving pleasure will always be a given. The 208 XY offers powerful and economical petrol and e-HDi diesel engines with outputs between 92 to 155bhp. For the 208 GTi, its chassis can comfortably handle the full potential of the 1.6-litre THP 200bhp engine coupled with the manual gearbox with six close-ratio gears and impressively with CO2 emissions of just 139g/km.
