PEUGEOT 208 review

NGC verdict 18.02.2016

Peugeot's 208 is one of the greenest superminis around, with a number of variants emitting less than 100 g/km CO2. The 208 tested is fitted with the latest version of the Peugeot-Citroen group's three-cylinder petrol engine which is one of the most efficient in its class, with excellent fuel economy and emissions figures. Having had a mild refresh both in terms of looks and under the skin, is the little Peugeot able to match up to the promise of its strong green credentials?
