Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Entry-level cars miss out on driver’s seat-height adjustment, but at least it comes as standard on next-level-up Active trim. The backrest adjustment on the driver’s seat is good, too, because it’s controlled by a more precise wheel rather than the stepped lever. The seats themselves provide decent support both at the side and for the lower back. It’s a shame, though, that the steering wheel adjusts up and down only; there’s no reach adjustment.

Everything on the dash is within easy reach and the climate controls are simple to use, whether they’re the simpler rotary dials of lower trims, or the electronic climate control type higher up in the range.

Our experience with the system is largely positive; the display is bright and clear, but with the roof down on the Top model the glare from the sun makes it impossible to read. On solid-roofed 108s this is less of an issue, though, and the on-screen buttons themselves are big, bold and very responsive. Bluetooth and DAB radio are also both standard with the screen.

Quality

Cars in this price range are always built down to a price, but the dashboard, door cards and centre console in the 108 are all covered in hard, scratchy plastics that are a constant reminder of that tight budget.

Buyers have the option to add one of three interior themes; the different-coloured plastic inserts for the dashboard improve matters, but they’re a £100 option, even on the highest trim levels.
