I find the new Peugeot 208 and 308 quite appealing and suited for those who need to use a city car on a daily bases. However, they are even more standout with the new Tech Edition that the carmaker is launching in France.
The Peugeot 208 Tech Edition costs at least €19,500 for standard features and can go higher with optional goodies. On the other hand, the Peugeot 308 Tech Edition is set at €26,550 and is available as a five-door hatchback or estate.
Starting with the Peugeot 208 Tech Edition, the French carmaker has equipped it with new design elements that distinguish it from the standard model, adding as well 16-inch Titanium Diamantage wheels, special badges on the front doors or door handles finished in gloss black.
The interior is also refreshed with special features like Techmat Mistral 3D mesh upholstery with Zephyr Gray stitching and full-grain leather steering wheel. There are also additional safety gizmos like reversing camera, Active City Brake, Park Assist of Front Park Assist.
Under the hood, the Peugeot 208 Tech Edition features PureTech petrol burners with power between 81 HP and 108 HP, paired with a five- and six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. On the diesel side, there is also the BlueHDi engine with 99 horsepower and six-speed manual transmission.
Moving on to the Peugeot 308 Tech Edition, this particular model stands-out from the crowd with 17-inch Ruby Diamond alloys, badges on the front fenders, while the cabin is suited with Alcantara upholstery with blue and orange stitching, stainless steel pedals or leather steering wheel.
Powering this particular model are a couple of petrol burners and a diesel, the latter one coming with 128 horsepower and a choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. The petrol burners come with output between 108 horsepower and 128 horsepower, respectively.
