New 108 on show in Geneva

by Nigel Wigmore

PEUGEOT will show two all-new models and two innovative engine technologies at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

They signal the start of the next phase of the revamp of Peugeot’s entire range, which is already the youngest in its history.

With the down-sizing trend showing no sign of slowing down, the customers’ desire for characterful city cars stronger than ever, Peugeot will unveil the all new 108.

A successor to the hugely popular 107 — which has sold 800,000 units worldwide — the car is set to bring a breath of fresh air to the A-segment. Accounting for around 10 per cent of the European new car market, a strong product in the sector is vital.

From April the Peugeot 308 range will be extended with a second body style — the SW, a versatile and practical estate car.
