What used Peugeot 208 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Being fairly fresh on the used market, the 208 is still relatively pricey for a 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 £14,500. 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 £15,000. Cars from 2020 and 2021 will cost around £15,000 to £17,000 still. You'll need around £20,000 to get behind the wheel of the all-electric e-208 version.

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.
