The first official photos of the 2012 Peugeot 208 were leaked on the net. The Peugeot 208 is the successor to the 207 model that has been in production since 2006.
The 2012 Peugeot 208 is more compact than the 207 measuring 3,975mm long, or 70mm less than its predecessor. Peugeot’s engineers managed to reduce the weight by a whopping 110kg or close to 250 pounds on average across the range.
The Peugeot 208 will launch next spring with a choice of two petrol and five diesel engines. The base petrol range will include a pair of three-cylinder motors with a 1.0-liters and 1.2-liters units.
The exterior of the 208 draws its styling inspiration from the Peugeot’s most recent concepts such as the HX1, while the interior is distinguished by the multi-layered dashboard featuring a prominent center console that plays host to a large infotainment screen.
