PEUGEOT unveiled its new 208 generations in the GCC, perfectly highlighting the French automaker’s expansion strategy in the region. Futuristic and athletic, the new 208 comes in two trim levels; the entry-level ‘Active’, and the top-of-the-range ‘GT’ model bringing a breath of youth and energy to the B segment.

 

The new generation of PEUGEOT’s dynamic 208 hatchback model has been completely re-imagined to emphasise the brand’s new sharp, futuristic design language. The PEUGEOT 208’s cool new exterior is now more seductive and purposeful, whilst the car’s spectacular interior includes premium materials and cutting-edge technology – including the latest evolution of its trademark PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® 3D.

 

“With the new PEUGEOT 208, I am proud to introduce a car that projects PEUGEOT’s vision of the future. Its sleek and seductive design is reminiscent of its rich pedigree, drawing inspiration from models like the PEUGEOT 205, but with a new found youthfulness and energy that is testament to our brand direction. The 208 is a car that will disrupt the B segment thanks to premium materials, the latest in technology and unrivalled quality standards.” said, Rakesh Nair, Managing Director for European Brands at Stellantis ME.

 

Futuristic and young

The new 208 asserts a youthful image and communicates the values of the PEUGEOT brand – High Expectations, Style and Emotion through its design. It epitomises cheerfulness, sporty vitality, and promise thanks to sleek lines that complement PEUGEOT’s up-market strategy. Sitting at the heart of the B segment, the 208 is a game-changer that combines assertive automotive design, with next generation technology making it a worthy challenger in its class.

 

Available in two distinct trim levels, the base model ‘Active’, and top-of-the-range ‘GT’, the 208 is powered by a 1.2 litre turbo engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission that makes 130 hp and 230 Nm of torque. Both trims offer a premium experience for drivers and passengers alike and feature a wide array of options, including:

 

“Active”

  • 16” alloy wheels
  • LED auto headlamps
  • PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® layout
  • 7-inch touchscreen (featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™)
  • Cruise control + speed limiter
  • Rear sensors + Rear camera

 

“GT”

  • 17” Dual-tone Alloy wheels
  • Full LED auto headlamps
  • Digital Cluster
  • 10-inch HD touchscreen (featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™)
  • Navigation system
  • Front sensors
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Automatic emergency braking

 

Cutting-edge technology: PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®

The new PEUGEOT 208 benefits from a new, unparalleled generation of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, an inseparable part of the PEUGEOT’s driver-focused DNA. Labelled the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® 3D, it is a world-first in the segment, and displays information that can be read at two levels. Entirely customisable with six different display modes, the i-Cockpit® heads up display unit is positioned above the steering wheel and presents driving information within the eye line of the driver.

 

The central touch-screen is perfectly positioned and accompanied by seven ‘piano key’ toggle switches which operate the main i-Cockpit® features: radio, air conditioning, navigation, vehicle settings, telephone, and phone mirroring.

 

Sleek and desirable design

The New PEUGEOT 208’s exterior is distinctive and tasteful, revealing the strength of its expressive design. Longer, wider and lower than the outgoing PEUGEOT 208, this new generation reveals a distinctive bodyline, suggesting sportiness with its clean, taut lines. There is also a clear touch of sensuality conferred by the wide shaped wings and overall body curves – a discreet balance between soft and firm.

 

From the side, new PEUGEOT 208 reveals its pared-back windscreen that allows space for a longer, sculpted bonnet. To underscore the sporty look, the extreme-angled quarter light is perfectly aligned with the rear wheel arch. On the-top-of-the-range version, the 17-inch wheel rims are adorned with screw-in, customisable inserts which improve the aerodynamic effect.

 

Immediately recognisable, the front end is a clever blend echoing the visual signature of the lower section of new PEUGEOT models which feature full LED 3-claw headlights. The front bumper is designed as a single contour containing a perfectly-integrated, single outlet radiator grill in the centre, bearing the iconic PEUGEOT Lion.

The 208 will be available for customers from April 2021, customers will be able to visit PEUGEOT local distributors.

It features a panoramic sunroof, and different colour trims including the optional, beautifully crafted, black Nappa leather and Alcantara or Red Nappa leather upholstery. The interior design of the 5008 is bold, with style based on PEUGEOT’s new design language. As expressive as always, the signature 3D LED claws is once again a feature in the 5008. Be it day and night, you’ll find it on the rear end on all versions and in the projectors of high-end versions.

On the back of the success of the 508, PEUGEOT today unveiled the all-new 508 GT in the GCC. With an output of 217 HP and 300 Nm of torque, the range-topping PEUGEOT 508 GT also features a brand new 8-speed automatic transmission that sees the French brand offer customers a dynamic and sportier variant of its radical saloon.

Previously available in three trim levels, “Active”, “Allure”, and “GT-line”, the 1.6 litre turbo engine found in the all–new PEUGEOT 508 GT will receive a significant power boost of 52 HP, providing an instinctive and versatile driving experience that exemplifies the brand’s vision of an exciting future.

Rakesh Nair, Managing Director at Groupe PSA in the GCC, said: “The PEUGEOT 508 was a game-changer in the executive saloon segment, challenging premium automotive brands with its futuristic design language and cutting-edge technology. With the sporty 508 GT, we have introduced a model that solidifies our ambitions of providing our customers with the perfect balance between performance, comfort and technology – it is the perfect embodiment of our driver-focused philosophy.

As PEUGEOT continues its resurgence in the Middle East, the introduction of the 508 GT is testament to the brand’s desire to reach all types of customers. We look forward to what the year has in store, and to the success this new model can bring.”

A bold design

Whilst remaining true to its acclaimed predecessors – the iconic PEUGEOT 504 and 504 coupé – the 508 GT is a sleeker, more seductive shape. The front end’s purposeful stance is highlighted by the radiator grill, complete with a chrome-plated chequerboard effect, which sits between the LED headlights with the famous PEUGEOT Lion centred on its grill and the 508 logo on the bonnet.

Vertical LED daytime running lights provide a distinct identity, and the bonnet has been lowered to enhance the dynamic look perfectly aligned with modern PEUGEOT design language. The roof line of the 508 GT is low and sleek – following premium sector design cues – and the rear lights are framed in a glossy black horizontal strip that now features on many of PEUGEOT latest vehicles. Three-dimensional full LED rear lights inspired by recent PEUGEOT concept cars appear like coloured ‘lion claws’ a design feature synonymous with the PEUGEOT brand.

Cutting-edge technology: PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®

High-end, sporty finishing and first-class quality

The 508 GT features a refined, yet sporty interior and is fitted with comfortable AGR certified, red Nappa leather seats- or optionally black Alcantara & Nappa leather seats which envelops passengers in a soft, modern, refined environment. The careful assembly of all of these components are true hallmarks of luxury, sport saloons.

There is plenty of storage space – up to 32 litres – spread out around the passenger cabin, as well as many sockets for charging portable device, including a wireless charging spot. The car is also equipped with a wide-opening panoramic sunroof that floods the cabin with light, a hands-free tailgate with a foot sensor and a premium audio system by Focal® for unmatched acoustics.
