Peugeot unveils new 208 hatchback, might come to India

     We in our earlier post had posted many spy pictures of Peugeot’s B Segment hatch 207 testing in Indian conditions. Peugeot has zeroed Gujarat as its manufacturing hub in India with an investment of Rs. 4000 crores. Peugeot will launch its first vehicle in India in the form of 507 sedan which too was spied along with the 207 hatchback in India. Since the new 208 has been unveiled now, Peugeot might just bring in its latest hatch to compete in the hot B segment. They why are they testing 207 in India? Well that could be to test the car’s performance in Indian conditions. To remind you the 207 hatch which was spotted in India is a 3 door version and so we can imagine that the new 208 5 door hatch will soon ply on our roads.


     The new Peugeot 208 gets a very futuristic design with new grill and swept back headlamps. The tail lamps are boomerang type which gives an entirely different look to the car but still keeps that Peugeot’s French styling. The interior of the car has also been reworked with more knee room for the passengers.




     Peugeot will bring in its d-HDi technology to 208 along with start stop technology to all its diesel variants. Powering the 208 hatch will be 1 liter petrol and 1.2 liter diesel engine, both with 3 cylinders. Expect to get a car with class leading performance in the B Segment soon in the form of Peugeot 208.
