Peugeot 208 Gt line 2020 great looking car.
Added: 4th of October 2020
For the most part I’m very pleased with this car. Mine is in faro yellow which is free and it looks really good in the gt line version and above due to the black roof and trim around the wheel arches etc. However in my opinion this colour looks out of place on the lower versions due to the lack of black trim. The 3D cockpit dials and various display options and colours are a nice touch and is complimented nicely by the ambient lighting on the dash and front doors of which there are eight colour options. I like the small steering wheel, it feels sporty and at its best if it’s lifted and pulled more towards you so that you can just see the display There’s plenty of room in the front and very comfortable, although the rear access and space is a little tight. The boot space is ok but if I need to transport any slightly larger items and need to lower the rear seats I use my wife’s Chrysler ypsilon because it has more space all round even though it’s around the same size. The adaptive steering on the standard tyre pressures can be a little annoying, when you increase speed it almost feels like the lane departure is pulling at the steering wheel even when it’s switched off, as such I pump up the tyres to the full load setting. This is much better and doesn’t really affect the ride quality. For a car with a 1.2 100hp engine the performance is excellent and it feels like a much bigger engine and in my opinion there’s really not much point in going for the 130hp version. I have returned the car to the dealership to get the drivers door realigned. This is something you need to look out for if your looking to buy one. When I looked at other 208s on the forecourt there was a number cars with the same problem, albeit not all and not quite as bad as mine was. Plenty of tech but as with most Peugeot’s using the touch screen can be a bit fiddly and confusing especially whilst driving but there is a row of buttons that operate some of the options.The interior looks great albeit it’s more of a perceived quality when you look more closely, especially when compared to the latest Renault Clio which is another car I considered. The Clio has excellent interior quality but the appearance is less less striking than the 208 and along with the exterior looks it wasn’t for me.
