Small Peugeots have always been a hit with UK buyers - the 205, 206 and 207 sold in their hundreds of thousands. Now the Peugeot 208 is here and it's meant to rival the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo with a new blend of style and quality. While it certainly looks the part inside and it, with a much higher quality cabin, it just doesn't drive as well as its rivals, mainly because underneath that pretty body is an updated platform from the old 207. That said, you can choose from a wide range of new engines including some frugal diesels and a pair of three-cylinder petrols. In addition, the vast majority of models come with lots of equipment as standard.
