The UK is the third largest market for PEUGEOT with its UK Headquarters located in Coventry. The UK car line-up includes the 108, 208, 308, 508, 2008, 3008 and 5008 supplemented by people-carriers and a four-model van range that includes the Bipper, Partner, Expert and Boxer. The 208 is the best-selling Peugeot and the Partner the best-selling van in the UK.
Launched in 2014, the 108 is a chic compact city car with a great personality. Powered by 1.0- and 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines, with a choice of 3- and 5-door, Hatchback and TOP! body styles, it is available with an extensive level of personalisation choice.
Re-invigorated in 2015, the 208 remains the best-selling Peugeot car. Its arrival introduced the pioneering Peugeot i-Cockpit (combining the compact steering wheel with high-level instrumentation and TouchScreen technology) and PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines. The latest versions feature BlueHDi diesel engines capable of just 79g/km – make it the most efficient non-hybrid car.
The 2008 took the world by storm in 2013 when launched, bringing the Urban Crossover niche to an eagerly-awaiting audience. Sales, especially in the UK, have performed above expectation and feature the innovative Grip Control system to set it apart from the competition.
