If you are searching for a sharp-handling small car, there are better and cheaper alternatives – including the Ford Fiesta and Seat Ibiza. But if a rich interior, a comfortable ride, quiet cruising and decent interior space drive your purchasing decision, the 208 could well be the car for you.get the best price
GT is the top-spec trim but it's available only with the 208e electric model. In addition to other the lesser trims you get adaptive cruise control, sat-nav, a 10.0in infotainment screen, heated front seats and blind spot monitoring.
This comes with a 50kWh battery powering a 136bhp electric motor; enough to propel it from 0-62mph in a spritely 8.1sec and comfortably quicker than a Renault Zoe and most versions of the Nissan Leaf. It also has an impressive WLTP-certified range of 211 miles on a full charge. While we are yet to put the e-208 through our Real Range test, the official 211 miles from a full charge is around the middle of the class – a comfortably longer range than cars like the Volkswagen e-Golf and BMW i3, but behind the new Renault Zoe, Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia e-Niro.
