The Peugeot 108, the French company’s new city car, has been revealed ahead of its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The new 108 will be available as a three- and five-door hatchback, and with the option of a retractable fabric roof that measures 80cm by 76cm, dubbed the 108 Top.
It’s likely to feel right at home in the city, at 3.47m long and 1.62m wide, with a 9.6m turning circle. It’s light, too, at just 840kg.
Although Peugeot hasn’t released pictures of the interior, the company has described the way the speedometer housing forms part of the steering column, and contains both an analogue speedo and an LCD screen, with a rev counter and gear shift indicator in ‘extensions’ either side.
Boot space is 196 litres on models without a space wheel (180 litres otherwise), and this increases to 750 litres by folding the 50/50 split rear seats.
Two engines will be available, starting with a 1.0-litre VTi with 68bhp that emits 95 g/km of CO2 when coupled with the standard five-speed manual gearbox or 97 g/km with the optional five-speed ETG ‘box, plus the option of an e-VTi variant that drops that figure to 88 g/km.
A 1.2-litre PureTech VTi with 82bhp and a five-speed manual ‘box will also be available, and this emits 99 g/km.
The new Peugeot 108 will make its debut at the Geneva motor show next month, and will on on sale in the UK on 1st July 2014.
