2014 PEUGEOT 108 REVEALED
Renault isn’t the only Euro brand planning to premiere a tiny new model in Geneva next month, with Peugeot’s new 108 city car unveiled online today.
Yes, there’s little about the 2015 108 that be can described as groundbreaking - but despite its familiar looks, it does look the part.
Squaring off against the new Renault Twingo revealed this week, the next-generation 108 showcases the latest incarnation of Peugeot’s new styling language.
The French carmaker’s powerful new grille rules up front, flanked by the same hooked headlight design now featured across the new Peugeot range.
It’s a similiar story at the rear, with wrapped tail-lights at each corner and a large gloss black panel setting off the hatch’s tailgate.
And, like the Twingo, the new 108 will be offered in both hardtop hatch and soft ‘Top!’ spec with a rollback fabric roof.
At 3.47m long, the 108 is around the same length as the new Twingo, and weighs in at just 840kg.
Power is provided by 50 and 61kW three-cylinder engines, each mated to a five-speed manual transmission as standard.
The new 108’s cabin has yet to be revealed, but Peugeot promises a design and feel that evokes larger offerings. Material quality is also claimed to be greatly improved.
