As I wrote in a review of a C-segment car just the other day, the quality of cars being produced in Europe at the moment is excellent. Due to the increased competition manufacturers are in a never-ending war of oneupmanship as they fight over class honours. From C-segment cars we see this trickle down to even the small city car class. The Peugeot 108 unveiled to be a rather smart pocket sized companion.
Replacing the Peugeot 107, the 108 miniaturises the French companies latest deign language. The end result is a car that looks modern and weighs just 840KG. Available in both three and five door models, the 108 can be equipped with a retractable fabric roof. Powered by either a 68BHP 1.0 litre VTi or a 1.2 litre VTi with 82BHP, the little Peugeot does not have a diesel option. A five speed manual or automatic gearboxes can be specified. Just like many of its rivals, the 108 has many customisation option on offer to entice younger buyers.
As its predecessor did, the Peugeot 108 will share its platform with the yet to be announced next-generation Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo.
