History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Peugeot 208 page on 11 April 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Peugeot 208 is a supermini car (B-segment) produced by the French automaker Peugeot and unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. The first 208 models were three door hatchbacks produced in 2011 at the company's new plant in Slovakia. In June 2012, as five door hatchbacks became available, production of the 208 also commenced at Peugeot's French plants at Mulhouse and at Poissy.

Specification and design

The 208, developed under code name "A9", is built on the PSA PF1 platform and the weight is to be reduced by 173 kg (110 kg on average) compared with the 207 and still offer more space than the predecessor. The boot offers 285 L (10 cu ft) (VDA) of space, 15 L (1 cu ft) more than the 207, and the leg room in the rear seat increases 5 cm (2 in). The design was led by Pierre Authier, with Sylvain Henry as exterior designer.

The interior design is by Adam Bazydlo and the colour and trim is by Marie Sanou. The car will feature a tablet computer-like screen and panoramic glass roof surrounded by LED lights. The car is relatively aerodynamic with a drag coefficient, Cd, of 0.29.
