Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The 108 looks competitively priced, and it even manages to be cheaper the own than the Toyota Aygo, with which it shares many parts.

Running a 108 should be a painless experience, too; 99g/km CO2 emissions mean company car users will pay a relatively low rate of Benefit-In-Kind (BIK) tax. The 1.0-litre petrol engine performed particularly well in our True MPG tests for real-world fuel economy, too, achieving an impressive 54mpg. Even an equivalent Skoda Citigo Greentech is very slightly more expensive every month.

All vehicles first registered in the UK and purchased from a UK Peugeot Dealer benefit from a Peugeot two-year unlimited-mileage manufacturer’s warranty and a free optional additional year of warranty provided by Peugeot dealers; this is respectable but no match for the five-year standard warranty offered on the Hyundai i10.

On top of this, all new Peugeots also come with a year of breakdown cover.

Safety and security

The 108 received four stars out of a maximum five in Euro NCAP safety tests, scoring 80% for both adult and child occupant protection; those figures are almost a perfect match for the scores posted by the Hyundai i10.

Every 108 gets six airbags, hill-start control, tyre-pressure monitoring, ESP and a speed limiter (on manual models). It also has ISOfix anchoring points, and Allure trim and above gets automatic headlights.

Overview

Cheap to run and good touch-screen system; rivals are more spacious, though

  • Generous standard equipment list
  • Low running costs
  • Cramped rear cabin
  • Boot is small, even for a city car
  • Too much engine, wind and road noise
