The new Peugeot 208 represents a significant step forward over the old model. It gets a funky new design, premium interior, and a choice of petrol, diesel, and electric powertrains. But with a higher price tag, can the upmarket 208 still hold its own against the Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Polo and Vauxhall Corsa? Nicola Hume puts it to the test to find out.

    I have a 206 now, i love this series of Peugeot

  7. I've got a new GT version but I can't figure out why the sat nav voice isn't loud enough.

  8. WTF is up with that shut line at 1:19 😞

  9. is this same as a
    2022 Corsa ?

  10. Do not buy one of these! I'm currently pursuing PSA and Peugeot through the ombudsman and the courts for my money back for all the faults mine had. Nobody at Peugeot UK, including the MD, was interested in fixing the car. The major one was a knocking noise from the driveshaft that two engineers said needed replacing. watch here:–Bbk

  11. Should be called the Peugeot 209 to stop confusion. Also when searching for a used 208, or reviews on last 208, this model keeps coming up. I prefer the high mounted front lights of the last 208. Take away the bumper daytime running lights on new model and this model looks drab in comparison unless you opt for the GT line which has half plastic black, alloys, omg how cheap!
    The lesser models look very dull and their allow wheels are cheap. Also a crazy 20k plus for all models. Ridiculous. French are punishing the Brits since Brexit.

  12. Nice car…and nice Girl! 😍 I would like both! 😅❤️ PS: Greetings from Germany!🤘🏻

  13. Oh I would love a ride with that 😜😜

  14. Well, trousers are very attractive and she is very pretty 🙂 design of car is ok

  15. Definitely a lovely looking car .

  16. Nicola feel free to take the trousers off😉😂 I like her! Right all seriousness what are real world mpg for 130hp 8speed auto?

  17. Nowt wrong with the troosers nice car and review, wonder if we're related 🤔

  18. Snacky trousers!

  19. I'm buying a 208 gt 130 and I'm in love I can't wait to drive it from the uk to France in the next few weeks

  20. Nice review Rupert x

  21. The host reminds me a lot of Matt from car wow. The review is nice.

  22. So funny how far we came with cars. Look at that first Peugeot and this one. Amazing. Back seats? Not true at all. The polo has less room. We have this car and tried polo as well.

  23. got mine on order, can't wait

  24. The thing that burns me from the inside is that Peugeot used to make some wonderful 4 cylinder engines and now they stick to these rubbish 3 cyl engined for whatever reason.
    You ditched the legendary GTi, at least bring back 4 cyl engines to your hatchbacks, PLEASE

  25. I like the tartan trousers. They would go nicely with the tartan seat pattern in my Polo GTi. I really must get a pair. Aesthetics are everything.

  26. Such a beautiful lady on a beautiful 🚗 car

  27. I'm just tossing up between this and the Fiesta St line mhev, tricky…… Peugeot need to add a trim option in trouser colour 😀

  28. 2 years in with my yellow 130hp GT 208 and I'm still as happy as day one.
    Best of all is that it's still one of the most pretty cars on the road today.

  29. She's brilliant 👍

  30. I've had the 208 GT Diesel since June 2021 and i love it. I installed an amplifier + sub & and was actually very satisfied with the standard speakers!
    I've allmost driven 45000km should hit 55000km at the 1 year mark. No worries….

  31. What’s a Fiesta?

  32. I had those indicator stalks and cruise control unit in my 2002 308…….

    It a lovely looking wee car I just show it this morning I put some money down on it I like the feel I get inside of it and feel of the seat's very rooming for me and I what I need it for

  34. This woman shud be in some 2000s hollywood spoof comedy movie… Not here…what a boring review

  35. Gone for the one just below this – gt 100 eat8. Honestly can’t wait 😜 had my 208 entry level active for a good amount of time but wanted something with a bit more power and the interior difference between the active and GT is crazyyy!

  36. The GT premium is actually the top spec….the GT version is the 2nd from best model

  37. Thicc

  38. I know, someone really needs to write and tell Peugeot that the idea with the small steering wheel isn't really working for them.

  39. One very foxy philly 😘

  40. Her weird voice thing is annoying

  41. It's greatly over priced. You can buy a BMW or Mercedes which are more refined and better quality than the humble Peugeot 208 for the same price. I'm not sold!😗

  42. Good Lord she is cute and fascinatingly sexy with her accent .
