Practicality & boot space Rating

3.0 out of 5

If you plan on carrying passengers regularly, we'd recommend the five-door model, which makes access to the rear considerably easier. Unfortunately for bargain-hunters, the basic Access trim is only available as a three-door, but all the other (more expensive) models can be chosen with three or five doors.

The Peugeot 108 is just 3.5 metres long – even shorter than a Hyundai i10 – so nipping through traffic and into parking spaces is a breeze. All-round visibility is good, too, making this a great town car.

Peugeot 108 interior space & storage

Space up front is as you'd expect and there's plenty of adjustment in the driver’s seat and steering wheel. All 108s except the most basic model have height adjustment for the driver's seat, while every car gets power-steering, remote central locking and electric front windows.

Rear-seat space is predictably limited, although there's enough room for two adults on a short journey. Two ISOFIX mounting points mean you can also fit child seats in the rear.

Storage space comes in the form of a glovebox that will hold a large bottle of water. There are also modest-sized door bins and a space for your bits and pieces in the centre console next to two cup-holders. In the back, there’s another cup-holder, plus small door pockets.

Boot space

If boot space is your priority, then take a look at the Hyundai i10. The 196-litre boot in the Peugeot 108 is 55 litres shy of the Hyundai's, but the 108's low load lip does mean it's easy to lift heavier items into the car.

In all but the most basic model, the rear seats split down the middle and fold (but not completely flat), which improves the city car's practicality further – but let's be honest, you don’t buy a city car to carry flat-pack furniture.
