What Car? says...
Today, a city car has never been more useful. Not just because they're a handy size for dealing with the ever-increasing congestion in our town centres, but because they offer many big-car features in a less expensive package. The Peugeot 108 is one such car.
It's actually a near-triplet to the Citroën C1 and Toyota Aygo, each of which are built in the same factory and use the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine. All three have very different identities, though, so you can pretty much pick the one you like the most.
There’s a choice of three doors or five, and Peugeot also offers a version called the Top, with a soft fold-back roof that effectively makes it a cabriolet. Beyond these choices, there are four trims to decide between (three on Top models) which feature different grades of interior finish and equipment.
The latest versions have been given a boost with extra technology and wide variety of optional styling touches, and the 108 is certainly an improvement on the previous 107. Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the 108, and to see how we think it compares with its rivals in this hotly contested class. We'll also pick our favourite engines and trim levels.
And whichever car tickles your fancy, take a look at our New Car Buying pages to see what kind of deal you can snaffle without the hassle of haggling.
