Peugeot 208 Launches at Westover
The new Peugeot 208 has arrived at Westover’s three Peugeot showrooms in Christchurch, Poole and Salisbury.
The dealerships welcomed Peugeot’s latest model to the line-up, hosting an evening launch event and inviting customers to the showrooms to share in the celebrations, see the car and enjoy some drinks and snacks.
Demonstrator models are now available for anyone wishing to take a test drive, with the first deliveries being made later this month – so it won’t be long before the 208 is spotted out and about on the region’s roads.
“Feedback in the showrooms on the night was really positive,” reports Paul Griffiths, Westover Peugeot’s brand manager. “In fact, we’ve already taken 11 orders, which goes to show just how well received the car was!”
“I think its popularity will be down to the fact that it delivers an impressive performance – it’s sporty and nimble – but it also offers great value for money. It’s thrown down some really strong competition for rivals like the VW Polo and the Ford Fiesta and early enquiries indicate that it’s set to steal some market share. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it take on the iconic status that the 205 enjoyed in the late 80s and early 90s.”
The Peugeot 208 is a completely new car, which sees Peugeot going back to its roots and drawing upon past successes, as Mini and Fiat have done in recent years. Everything from the chassis up has been redeveloped and the car is smaller in every way (shorter, narrower and lower) than the 207 - but bigger inside. It’s also lighter, which means the engine delivers strong acceleration and responsive braking.
The Peugeot 208 comes in a range of engine choices, with the addition of 1.0 and 1.2 litre models from the beginning of August. Three and five door options both have high specification levels, with a large full-colour touch screen to control sat nav, music and mobile communications. Prices start at £9,995 OTR.
