Peugeot have announced full price and specification for their new 108 city car, which will go on sale in July priced from £8,245. The tiny 108 will come with a choice of either a 1.0 litre 68 bhp or 1.2litre 82 bhp petrol engines and comes in hatchback or convertible guises. With the 1.0 litre engine (which comes with an optional semi auto gearbox, for those with racing delusions) will push out just 88g/km of CO2 when hooked up to the optional stop/start system, meaning the now standard citycar band A road tax. Even without the efficiency increasing system it is still a meagre 95g/km, easily keeping the 108 in the £0 tax bracket.
Both come as standard with a five-speed manual ‘box, and impressively the 1.2 also manages 999g/km, sneaking under the magic 100 mark.
Four trim levels will be available, Access, Active, Allure and Feline, with the entry level Access only available on three-door models. Standard on the base model are LED daytime running lights, remote central locking, USB/aux connection for external audio players with steering wheel-mounted controls, six airbags, ESP stability control and two rear ISOFIX mountings.
The £9,495 1.0litre Active adds colour-coded door handles and mirrors, air-conditioning, height-adjustable driver’s seat, 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with DAB digital radio, Mirror Screen and Bluetooth.
Another £1,500 brings the Allure with 15-inch ‘Thorren’ alloy wheels, front fog lights, auto headlights, electric heated door mirrors, reversing camera, leather steering wheel and gear knob, plus PEUGEOT Open & Go (keyless entry and engine start/stop button).
The £11,845 Feline adds Feline trim, which adds a touch of luxury. Features include leather upholstery, chrome door handles and mirrors and automatic dual zone air conditioning. The Top! (name inspiration from VW) cabrio will start from £10,345 for the Active 3-door and hits £12,245 for the 1.2-litre Allure five-door.
