The Peugeot 108 is on Auto Express’ list of “ten best city cars currently on the market” – and with good reason. This chic French automobile is simple to drive, economical to run and produces low emissions. It’s also extremely affordable, particularly when purchased from Arthurs of Oswestry.
The funky 108 comes in a choice of three or five-door body styles, with the latter a sound choice if you typically convey three or more travellers. A Laser Red paint finish is applied as standard, which is as vibrant a hue as one could hope for. Exterior illumination is provided by, among other things, height-adjustable high-beam headlamps – ideal during thick fog or heavy rain or snow. All but entry-level Access grades can be specified with an electrically folding fabric roof, which makes the 108 perfect for carefree drop-top driving.
Inside the car, there’s plenty of room for four adult travellers, including a particularly spacious forward compartment. The car’s exterior mirrors can be operated from within, while a tilt-adjustable steering wheel helps the driver to find his or her ideal position. Active trims add air conditioning and electric front windows, making it simple to establish an ideal cabin temperature. The 108 possesses a 196-litre boot space, which increases to a useful 868 litres with rear seats folded.
Access grades are fitted with a 1.0-litre 68bhp petrol engine as standard, which is the most fuel-efficient option available for the 108. This returns as much as 68.9mpg and produces emissions as low as 95g/km. If a little more potency is required, Allure trims and above are powered by a 1.2-litre 82bhp unit, which delivers 0-60mph in approximately 10 seconds. Nevertheless, this three-cylinder engine still manages up to 65.7mpg, while producing a 99g/km emission figure.
Technology and safety
A two-speaker stereo is included as standard, and features an FM/AM tuner. Next-level Active trims come with two additional speakers, as well as DAB digital radio – and Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming and hands-free telephone communication.
Driver aids such as Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control and Hill-start Assist are included as standard. The latter prevents the car from rolling whenever the engine is started on an incline. Passive safety features include a six-airbag system and a pair of ISOFIX mounts in the rear compartment that are perfect for securing the most precious cargo of all – children!
