What used Peugeot 208 hatchback will I get for my budget?
The 208 is still relatively pricey for a used small car. For a 1.2-litre petrol model with the entry-level Active trim, prices start at around £13,500, which is quite a bit higher than a Fiesta or Polo of the same age. The diesel starts at around £1000 more, and if you opt for the Allure trim, that will set you back £14,700. There’s a greater selection of 208s in Allure trim on the market, so we suggest stretching your budget a little to give yourself more choice. The range-topping GT Line is closer to £17,000.

How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 208 hatchback?
The 1.2-litre petrol Puretech 100 has an official WLTP fuel economy figure of 55.6mpg, and in our real-world test it managed 47.9mpg – similar to other small cars of the same engine size. The Puretech 130 drinks a bit more fuel, with an official 51.9mpg average. The diesel model is, of course, more economical, at 71.4mpg, but again you can expect this to be slightly lower in real-world conditions and it does come at a higher price. Or there’s the option to go fully electric with the e-208.
Road tax (VED)
The 208 comes under the flat-rate fee for road tax at £150 a year. To find out more about road tax costs, click here.
Servicing and insurance
Peugeot offers fixed-price servicing at £199 for a minor service and £329 for a major service after a two-year service at £269. There are also fixed-price service plans available that allow you to break up the cost over your period of ownership.
The 208 comes with a three-year warranty that can be extended as long as the car is under three years old and has covered less than 60,000 miles. The insurance groups for the different models of the 208 are relatively low and match what you can expect to pay to insure a Fiesta or Polo.
