One of a raft of launches awaiting the Geneva Motorshow next month the new 108 will, Peugeot say, be moving upmarket and even spawns a convertible version.
The new 108 is 3.47m long, 40mm longer than it’s predecessor and 50kg heavier than the old one at 840kg.
Peugeot claim buyers will be getting a “premium” interior including a seven-inch touch-screen, reversing camera, keyless entry and starting, automatic air conditioning, heated electric mirrors and automatic lighting, although expect at least some of those to be optional extras.
Outside Peugeot’s current brand-face is grafted onto the tiny body, which retains the “wheels at all four corners” look of the original 107.
Two engine options will now be available. The standard 1.0litre three-pot still produces 68bhp but a new 1.2-litre PureTech VTi joins the lineup, producing 82bhp as well as two more, as-yet unannounced, units.
Alongside the standard 108 the new convertible Top! adds a fabric roof in a choice of three shades.
No sale date or prices have been announced but expect to see it on the road later this year.
