Peugeot 108 price, release date & specs
Everything you need to know about the all-new Peugeot 108, coming in 2014
The new Peugeot 108 is due to be launched in 2014 and will replace the current Peugeot 107 as the manufacturer's smallest non-electric car, designed for city dwellers. The new Peugeot 108 joins the new Toyota Aygo and the new Citroen C1 as part of a trio of new models sharing many of the same parts.
As well as competing with each other, the Peugeot 108, Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1 will rival the Skoda Citigo, SEAT Mii and Volkswagen up! city cars, which also share their main parts and are all built by the Volkswagen Group.
Peugeot 108 price and release date
The Peugeot 108 will likely be about £500 cheaper than the new Toyota Aygo – just like the Skoda Citigo and SEAT Mii are cheaper than the VW up!. Thanks to strong competition from those cars we expect the new 108 to cost from about £8,000.
With a reveal not likely until next year, we expect that the new Peugeot 108, like its cousins from Toyota and Citroen, will go on sale in late 2014.
New Peugeot 108 specs
Peugeot is likely to keep the styling of the new 108 along the same lines as the rest of its new range of models. That means it will have a front-end design that looks like the Peugeot 208 and 308 hatchbacks. It's also likely to be quite boxy-looking, especially at the back.
Like the new Toyota Aygo, the new Peugeot 108 will be longer and wider than its predecessor the 107, and the wheels will be close to the corners of the car. That means grip will be improved and there will be more interior space than the previous car, and likely a bigger boot as well.
The Peugeot 108 will get a 1.0-litre petrol engine, shared with the new Aygo and C1, and because the 108 is likely to be lighter than the 107 it should get improved fuel economy and emissions. There could even be a hybrid model in the future, getting emissions as low as 50g/km.
