You never thought I would be writing about the new Peugeot 108. Why I write about the new 108? Because, Peugeot UK was the first automotive company to invite me to the press day of Peugeot 208, two years ago. Yes, it was two years ago and I couldn’t believe how the time move so fast when I saw the lovely PR team of Peugeot UK. (By the way, I just realised that I am taking better photos than two years ago.)
And here is the answer for, why you should buy a Peugeot 108?
The new Peugeot 108. I want to compare its price with an annual rail ticket from Virgin trains for the route of Birmingham to London. Go buy a Peugeot 108 (£8245) instead of a rail ticket from Virgin for the whole year. The price gap is nearly impossible to spot and you are not limited with the route from London Euston to Birmingham New Street, Peugeot 108 can travel wherever you wish!
New 108 has a very low CO2 emission, 88g/km? Why I am excited with that? Because, this means lower tax but if you are travelling to London from Monaco with a 108, you still have to pay the London Congestion Charge!
The best bit of the new 108, it has offer keyless access and engine start as standard! This is the best feature of the automotive industry. I was really jealous when the Mercedes introduced this technology as Keyless-Go in 1998 with the S-Class and was charging a lot of money. Now, it is free with Peugeot 108. I am obsessed with keyless access, really don’t know why!
In addition, it has touch screen and another fun bit! A rear view camera as a standard. Peugeot proofs that a rear-view camera does not cost a fortune and it can be standard!
If you are planning to buy a small car with exciting features and don’t want to spent a Knightsbridge flat price, Peugeot 108 is the best answer! But it doesn’t drive by itself, I really want this feature.
1.0-lt petrol engine 68 HP with 88g/km with Start and Stop, 1.2-lt petrol engine 82 HP with 99g/km. 2-Tronic automatic is optional and go for the automatic, manual is the last century’s technology :)
