All-new compact Peugeot 108 revealed with two body styles

Peugeot has unveiled an all-new compact city car, the 108 with two distinct body styles, 108 Hatchback and the 108 TOP! with retractable fabric roof.

The 108 is 3.47m long and 1.62m wide, with a turning circle of just 9.6m making it perfect for city commuters. The fabric roof on the convertible is 76cm long and 80cm wide and very similar to that of the Citroen DS3 Cabrio.

What’s really amazing also is that the new 108 weighs just 840kg!

Visually the new model looks much better and more upscale with design similar to the new 308. The front end is dominated by its bold grille, central beam and lower air intake, while upper sections contain LEDs for daytime running lights.

The side is highlighted by its front and rear overhangs and at the rear we can see wraparound-style rear lights with a 3D effect.

The interior boasts height-adjustable driver’s seat, with various controls are all within easy reach, like the 7-inch touch-screen, the starter button coupled with the PEUGEOT Open and Go system, plus the automatic air conditioning.

The 108 engine range includes four efficient three-cylinder power units:
1.0-litre e-VTi 68bhp 5-speed manual – 88g/km CO2 Stop & Start
1.0-litre VTi 68bhp 5-speed manual – 95g/km CO2
1.0-litre VTi 68bhp 5-speed electronic – 97g/km CO2,
1.2-litre PureTech VTi 82bhp 5-speed manual – 99g/km CO2

The all-new 108 will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday 4th March, and will go on sale in the UK on 1st July 2014.
