From the beginning of February, Peugeot reviews the range of new 208 and e-208 with the arrival of new equipment, which translates into an increase of € 200 on the Active and Allure finishes. The manufacturer must also deal with a lack of 3D i-cockpit which lengthens delivery times.

Launched in October, and voted car of the year by L’argus, the new 208 recorded its first modification to its range in February. All finishes have DAB digital terrestrial radio, while the e-208s receive the Green’up charging cable as standard. In addition, the 208 Active and Allure receive Eco-LED spotlights instead of halogen lights.

The 208’s engines

No changes. The range revolves around the 1.2 PureTech of 75, 100 and 130 hp in petrol, the 1.5 BlueHDi 100 in diesel and the electric version of 136 hp. The only novelty is the availability of the 1.2 130 EAT8 on the GT Line finish.

Prices for the 2020 range

If the French city car is still displayed at € 15,500 at entry level Like, the Active and Allure finishes are invoiced € 200 more , whether with an internal combustion engine or an electric motor.

Shortage of 3D i-cockpit

Already a victim of its success? For sure because the supplier of the 3D i-cockpit (standard from Allure) is not keeping pace. 

In order to limit delivery times on the Allure finish, Peugeot offers a negative option (- € 500) which consists of replacing the digital meter with a 3.5 ” analog handset as on the 208 Active. 

Thus, the delivery time for the Allure finish with analog handset and halogen headlights is fixed at the end of March in petrol and at the end of April in diesel. If you want an Allure finish with the i-cockpit and Eco-LED headlights, the deadline is extended to July. Ditto for the GT Line diesel (June for the GT Line petrol).
