Filtered the new Peugeot 208! This is the new utility of the French firm
Leaks are the order of the day, no longer only in the technology market, but also in the automobile market. The last victim, the new Peugeot 208, which is scheduled to be presented at the Geneva Motor Show , which will take place from 7 to 17 March, but thanks to a leak, we already know quite well .
The new utility of the French firm follows the line of design marked by the Peugeot 3008 and the Peugeot 508, with very sharp shapes that bring a modern, sporty and aggressive touch , without losing a French design that is very attractive.
Exterior worked, modern and aggressive
The front of the Peugeot 208 has some slightly reminiscent of a Mazda 2 , with a long and muscular hood, which falls to end in a very elaborate calender, leaving prominence to the lion logo of the gala brand. The headlights, characterized by three LEDs and one elongated, in the style of the Peugeot 508, distill modernity and daring in their forms.
The side is probably the part of the new 208 where you can best appreciate the sportiness of the French utility. The fall of the bonnet, the prominent rear spoiler or the forms of both the C-pillar and the tension lines, reflect a product worked , inspired by the Peugeot 308, but with the character of the model. In my opinion, the wheel arches in black, which contrast with the color of the body, do not seem quite attractive to me, although I suppose it will be an optional one.
The behind, finally, follows faithfully the design line of the new Peugeot models, specifically the Peugeot 508 . The rear pilots, composed of three LED strips, are shown joined by a black stripe where the name of the French firm is located, just below its logo, and which helps to produce a sense of spaciousness at the level of width.
The interior ... more of the same?
As for the interior, the images reveal a cabin where modernity predominates , both for the i-Cockpit already famous the French firm, as for the chosen materials. The dashboard is made up of two heights, where the display of the infotainment system and the digital instrument panel are located in the upper one, and the air conditioning controls in the lower one.
Something I do not like about the design of the dashboard is the use of the black piano that so little like for its ease to get dirty , although it is true that it brings an elegant touch to the set. The steering wheel, on the other hand, is identical to what we saw in the Peugeot 508, and the instrument panel will have new graphics, although it is probably the same as the French firm used in models such as 3008 or the aforementioned 508. p>
A fully electric version? It seems so!
The environmental and governmental pressure of the agencies of the different countries has led many brands to offer new hybrid and electric options for their models, in order to reduce emissions and expand the range of products.
