Product Overview

Peugeot 208 II (chassis code P21) is an entry-level subcompact hatchback in production from 2019. It is powered by either small ICE engines that displaced 1.2 to 1.6 liters or a smaller electric motor aided by a battery capacity of 50kWh.
Compared to the original 208, the Mk2 has a more modern exterior, though Peugeot forego meaningful updates on the chassis and drivetrain. Instead, it threw in an "EV" driveline and called it a day.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Peugeot 208 has a 134bhp motor and a 50kWh battery giving a WLTP range of 211 miles. The e-208 gets the same lovely interior, apart from some different functionality so you can monitor the electrical systems. The ride is reasonably well controlled (the manual thuds less than the heavier auto) and the steering is direct, so there’s a relatively agile feel to it.

Pros
  • Fun to drive
  • Decent handling
Cons
  • Not as agile as ICE cars
  • Lack of infotainment tech

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The 208 steers in a much similar manner to the more expensive Peugeot, feeling direct but also numb. On its passive suspension and torsion-beam rear, the 208 smooths over potholes and ridges in urban settings with surprising finesse. It’s equally impressive on the motorway, cruising sublimely while dealing nonchalantly with undulations. The 208 shines, subjecting you to very little engine or road noise and only a gentle bluster of wind.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent ride quality
Cons
  • Lack of refinement
  • No automatic gearbox

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Top-of-the-line GT-spec test car costs the best part of £30,000. Performance is objectively good, though there's a sense of internia that comes from lugging around more than 350kg of battery-electric powertrain. Steering benefits from more weight than in ICE models, which calms the action and makes for more satisfying, natural-feeling direction changes.

Pros
  • Powerful powertrain
  • Excellent foot-well space
  • Excellent boot capacity
Cons
  • Poor ride quality

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Peugeot 208 sits on PSA Group’s new CMP small car platform. The platform has been designed from the outset to offer different powertrain configurations. The 208 can come with a petrol engine, a diesel engine or as a pure-electric vehicle. All are available with petrol, diesel or all-electric powertrains, with the exception of the GT Premium.

Pros
  • Frugal diesel engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • No Android Auto

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The 208 debuts Peugeot's new generation of its i-Cockpit. The entry-level Active gets the standard screen like on a 3008. But mid-spec Allure models and above get a 3D look to the driver's screen. A seven-inch screen sits in the middle of the dash, which can be upgraded to a 10-inch for £660 (standard on the e-208) It's as fiddly to use as before though, and nowhere near as simple to operate as the systems in the Fiesta, Ibiza and Polo.

Pros
  • Fantastic interior quality
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment
  • No automatic gearbox

Sentiment Score 71%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Peugeot e-208 is a cute and comprehensively high-tech small electric car that feels fun and youthful in a way that few rivals do. The 0-62mph time of 8.1 seconds doesn't sound like much but stick the willing electric 208 in Sport mode and it razzes off the line with satisfying vigour. It has a heartier mid-range response than the likes of the Renault ZOE, too.

Pros
  • Fun to drive
  • Looks and feels great
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons
  • Nobbly ride
  • No cable storage

Sentiment Score 77%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The e-208 offers two levels of regenerative braking: imperceptible and barely perceptible. Lift off the accelerator, and the Peugeot gently slows, as if coasting in a combustion car. There’s plenty of grip in corners, but the steering feels a little too light and at times inconsistently weighted as you push through a turn.

Pros
  • Superb range
  • Sleek interior
  • Superb infotainment system
Cons
  • Bulky brake pedal
  • Pricier than rivals
