Another chapter in Peugeot’s small car success story begins with the unveiling of the 108. Available in two distinct body styles – the 108 Hatchback and the retractable fabric roof 108 TOP! cabrio.
At 3.47m long and 1.62m wide, it’s got the compact dimensions that will really make the difference in town.
The all-new Peugeot 108 is already packed with character, but customers can add even more by choosing from a wide range of personalisation options. For body colour, there are eight striking shades, including two which are exclusive to the model: Aïkinite is a golden copper, and Purple Berry, a stunning shade of violet.
Reserved for the three-door hatchback are two versions of two-tone paint, Purple Berry and Zircon Grey, or Diamond White and Aïkinite. Anyone opting for the 108 TOP! cabrio model has the choice of three retractable fabric roof colours – Black, Grey or Purple Berry.
In addition, there are seven personalisation themes, three interior ambiences and a choice of six trims. The Peugeot 108 will cater for every taste.
The all-new Peugeot 108 brings the urban car into a new era with its large touch-screen in the middle of the dashboard. Standard from Active trim, this 7-inch display boosts the relationship between car and driver to a new high. It is the interface for the audio system, trip computer and for vehicle settings, but using Bluetooth® connectivity is also the access point for the driver’s smartphone.
The user can connect the phone’s applications that are compatible with use in a vehicle using Mirror Screen. This function operates using MirrorLinkTM technology for telephones running on Android, RIM and Windows, and by AppInCar for telephones running on Apple’s iOS.
It means the touch-screen in the Peugeot 108 becomes a mirror image of the connected smartphone. The driver then operates their smartphone from the car’s touch-screen. Depending on the telephone connected, applications can also be operated by voice commands using a voice recognition system.
DRIVING PLEASURE EVERY DAY
With its compact dimensions, the all-new Peugeot 108 is dynamic and agile around town, with excellent all-round visibility and practicality. For example, the Peugeot Open & Go system allows the doors to be unlocked, and the tailgate to be unlocked and partially opened, with just a press on the appropriate button.
AN ENGINE TO SUIT ALL USES
The 108 range is made up of four efficient three-cylinder engines:
Each works to take advantage of the lightness of the Peugeot 108 – it weights from just 840kg – to provide occupants with the perfect balance between road-holding and comfort. Running gear has been developed around a pseudo-McPherson front axle and a deformable rear beam made from a shaped tube. Compared to a component made from pressed steel, this solution offers the advantages of improved guidance and reduced weight.
SAFE AND EASY HANDLING ON THE ROAD
As soon as you take the controls of the all-new Peugeot 108, it reveals just how easy it is to use. Its light weight, electric power steering and the quality of its running gear all make their contribution.
All models have hill start assist.
The braking system includes ABS, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Emergency Collision Braking System and switchable ESP as standard. Stopping power comes from 247mm ventilated discs at the front and 200mm drums at the rear.
It’s a compact vehicle for a new generation of urban drivers who seek a sophisticated and versatile model that meets their every motoring need.
