Updates for the Peugeot 108 announced
Peugeot’s compact city car receives a number of styling upgrades in 2021 update, including new paint finishes and interior details
- Offered exclusively with five doors
- Only one 1.0-litre engine available
- Prices start from £13,320
The Peugeot 108 has been given a range of minor updates, including alternative paint finishes and fresh interior details. Now exclusively offered as a five-door model, with the three-door variant discontinued, prices for the updated compact city car start from £13,320.
Though more expensive than the Hyundai i10, the 108 is cheaper than the Volkswagen Up! and Peugeot will hope the updates keep its city car popular. The car’s main demographic is young and recently-qualified drivers.
Design and specifications
Available in the same three trim levels, Active, Allure, and Collection, the 108 can now be ordered in two new colour options, with Ural White and Galaxite Grey colours replacing the old Bianca White and Carbon Grey paints. Depending on the trim, buyers can also choose from colours including Laser Red, Caldera Black and Smooth Green to name a few. Inside, Active models feature a white cabin with grey panels.
Entry-level Active cars get 15-inch steel wheels and air-conditioning as standard, along with a seven-inch infotainment screen that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For £14,675, buyers can opt for the mid-range Allure, which sits on 15-inch alloy wheels and gains a number of in-car features such as a colour reversing camera and keyless go. The centre console can be finished in gloss black.
On range-topping Collection cars, which have a £14,925 price tag, the 108 now comes with body-coloured handles, replacing the previous chrome design, and 15-inch ‘Thorren’ alloy wheels with orange centre caps. The Collection also gets automatic air-con and orange interior trim with yellow upholstery stitching. For buyers who choose the Calvi Blue or Smooth Green finish, the 108’s cabin can also be specced with matching dashboard panels.
Engines and performance
The 108 will continue to be offered with one 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which is linked to a five-speed manual gearbox. The engine produces 72bhp and offers claimed fuel economy of up to 58.9mpg while emitting 110-111g/km of CO2.
