The new Peugeot 108 arrives in Ireland in January.
The predecessor of the Peugeot 107, the new model is described by Peugeot as ‘a compact runabout that’s exceptionally user-friendly for day-to-day motoring’.
‘Affordable quality’ is a key consideration, it said.
The new four-seater will initially be offered as a five-door with a choice of Active or Allure trims, with up to 11 personalisation themes.
The car will be powered by a 1.0 litre 68bhp or a 1.2 litre 82bhp PureTech petrol engine and both manual and ecomatique automatic gearboxes will be available.
An entry-level three-door Access model will arrive later.
Peugeot says the new Peugeot 108 can comfortably seat four occupants and has a bigger boot with a lower loading lip than the outgoing model. A spare wheel comes as standard.
Standard in the Active trim are a 7in colour touch screen with Mirrorlink technology,Bluetooth, air conditioning, electric/heated wing mirrors, 15in wheels, and a height adjustable driver’s seat.
Meanwhile, move up to the Allure trim and you also get a reverse camera, automatic headlights, front fogs, smart entry Keyless Go, 15in alloy wheels, a rev counter and a leather steering wheel.
Sales and marketing director Colin Sheridan said: ‘The good looking Peugeot 108 is an exceptionally practical vehicle pitched at an affordable price, designed to meet the needs of today’s small-car buyer who expect a quality product with premium features.’
Prices for the new Peugeot 108 start from €13,290, plus dealer related charges.
