• Identical to combustion car
  • Not overly spacious in the back
  • Bootspace in the middle of its rivals

Thanks to clever shared architecture the e-208's battery is mounted below the floor and means identical cabin and bootspace to the conventionally powered 208.

That means it's not exactly huge in the back, with tall passengers struggling a bit behind a tall driver, but on the whole it's what you'd expect a supermini to provide. Cut-outs in the rear of the front seats help to boost leg room but they're made of plastic and are a bit hard to rest your legs against.

Like the petrol and diesel 208 the boot measures a generous 311 litres despite the extra space taken up by the battery, meaning more room than a Ford Fiesta, but less than a Renault Clio.

Safety

  • Four star Euro NCAP rating
  • Plenty of driver assistance tech
  • Adaptive cruise works to a stop

The Peugeot 208 received a four-star rating when crash tested by Euro NCAP and comes with many passive and active safety systems, including airbags for the front passengers, curtain airbags and two Isofix points in the rear.

Standard equipment includes:

GT Line models gain front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera, plus autonomous braking with night and cyclist functions, and full LED headlights.

Top spec GT models gain a fully automatic parking system, adaptive cruise control, lane positioning assist and blind spot monitoring.

As with the combustion model, you can optionally add adaptive cruise control to lower grades with the Drive Assist Pack.
