Introduction

What Car? says...

You can always rely on a French car maker to build a stylish small car. Whether it’s any good or not is another question entirely, but the current Peugeot 208 is one of the good ones.

In fact, the 208 should definitely be on your shortlist – especially if you don’t mind paying a little bit more than the class norm for a properly special interior. 

It all sounds pretty good so far, doesn’t it? Over the next few pages, we’ll put the latest Peugeot 208 up against rival small cars to see how well it does. We’ll tell you how we rate its performance, interior quality, boot space and more, and which engine and trim we recommend. 

Then, if the 208 or any other make and model takes your fancy, find the best price with our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It's a good place to find the best new small car deals.
