Why Lease A Peugeot 208?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
There’s plenty of space up front in the 208 and legroom in the back should just be about fine, too. Rear headroom is tight for taller adults, though, especially in models with a sunroof.
Boot space is good at 311 litres, with more room than the Ford Fiesta or MINI Electric, but less than the SEAT Ibiza or Renault Zoe. Many electric vehicles lose boot size because of the need to house batteries, but the E-208 has the same capacity as the regular cars. You can fold the rear seats down if you need to carry larger items, giving you 1106 litres of space.
General storage is impressive too, with space under the central armrest, deep door pockets and a pair of cupholders, as well as a generous glovebox.
Lease an E-208 and Peugeot promises you up to 217 miles per charge, although you’d do well to get close to that in the real world. Expect an efficiency of around 2.9 miles per kWh (the electric equivalent of miles per gallon), which is a bit below rivals like the MINI Electric and the Volkswagen ID.3. You can charge the battery from a 7kWh home wall box in 7.5 hours, or to 80% in 30 minutes using a 100kW public rapid charger. The 208 comes with a cable to let you charge from a regular 3-pin socket if you don’t have access to a charger. It’ll take around 24 hours for a full charge on such a connection.
If you do mostly longer journeys, then the diesel could be your best bet. It’ll give you up to 73.6mpg according to official figures, while the petrol engines will give you up to 56.7mpg, depending on spec. That’s impressive compared to rivals. The mid-level 1.2 PureTech, with a manual gearbox, will be the most efficient option.
Peugeot 208 5-doorYou can only get the latest 208 in 5-door hatchback form. Unlike previous models, there’s no 3-door model and no convertible.
The Peugeot 208 Vs Competitors
Yes. There are rivals that do a few things better, but the 208 is a really solid all-rounder, with a premium feel that not many can match.
Peugeot has a reasonable reputation for reliability and one that’s improved a lot in recent years. The brand even topped a recent independent dependability study. It’s too early for a definitive verdict on the latest 208, but fingers crossed it’ll be more reliable than its disappointing predecessor.
With stylish looks and entry-level engines that won’t break the bank on insurance premiums, the 208 would be a great first car. However, some rivals have lower insurance.
Active Premium is the entry-level Peugeot 208 trim, while Allure is another step higher. It has extra equipment like automatic air conditioning, a more comfortable interior and an electric parking brake.
There are 3 factories building the Peugeot 208 around the world, but UK-bound cars are made in Trnava, Slovakia.
According to official tests, the Peugeot E-208 will do 217 miles on a single charge. In the real world, expect around 170 miles before you need to plug it in.
