Peugeot is capitalizing on the familiar "renew, reuse, recycle" campaign by adding "regenerate." The French car maker will debut the all-new 208 in Europe in the spring of 2012, replacing the 206 and 207 models.
The automaker also introduced a new range of three-cylinder engines promising fuel economy of 83.1 mpg (2.83 l/100km) using the diesel engines. The 1.0- and 1.2-liter VTi gas engines, also available, offer an estimated 65.7 mpg (3.58 l/100km).
The 208 has been completely redesigned. The controls are positioned around a small steering wheel, combined with an elevated instrument panel with a large touch screen.
A completely new, and more ergonomic, interior allows for more rear legroom and more luggage space than in the 207.
