We continue the analysis of the Peugeot 108 a small car designed for the city that has become a full demonstration that the size of a car is no impediment to the quality or a very complete equipment. Already in the first part of the test we could know all the details of its modern design four-passenger cabin or mechanical three-cylinder 82 hp. If you have not yet read you can do so here.

This time we are going to focus on the price and equipment both standard and options in this small Peugeot to later get into a driving test has left us clear what we expect from this vehicle shares a platform with the renvados also Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1.

Equipment

The Peugeot 108 3 door is only available to the associated equipment level more complete -Allure TOP - while five gates may also choose a lower level called Active. The model tested with 3 doors and Allure TOP finish! It has a starting price of 13620 euros which leaves aside the usual austerity of such bodies and offers a very complete equipment.

It includes standard keyless entry and start daytime running lights fog lights power outside mirrors convertible fabric roof alloy wheels 15-inch wheel and gear knob covered in leather air conditioning exterior chrome accents tinted rear windows bluetooth USB and AUX connections touch screen 7 inch Mirror Screen function and speed limiter can be equipped -not control crucero-.

As featured extras include leather upholstery with heated 1100 euros the automatic climate control and light sensor euros -240 seats Rear Camera -240 euros and different combinations of colors and decorations for the body as both the passenger compartment. A unit as tested is priced at 14500 euros configurator.

In the security section not short this city remains small by including in its endowment -ESP- stability control six airbags hill start assistant brake assist emergency or checking tire pressure.

Behavior

After a week driving the 108 and 1000 kilometers traveled do not think you take by surprise me say that the natural habitat of this model is the city albeit with nuances. Its wheelbase good-compared to its total size and the liveliness of its engine can get to make tours of highways at legal speeds without missing more power without the obligation of having to use more because the gearshift.

That power enough to keep cruise without problem is insufficient for overtaking or additions committed to solvency but when you consider that the outputs of the city should not be too frequent with this car they could say that fulfills this task note .

In city things it changes and is where the Peugeot asserts its small dimensions for ratonear through traffic with great agility. It maneuvering through dense traffic or parking make it a cinch to board the 108 where only he can be faulted for rear visibility. The thick C pillar makes us shortsighted back eg to exit a parking battery so that the rear view camera is highly recommended for this model.

Homologous an average consumption in the combined cycle of 4.3 liters per 100 km a figure that seems difficult to achieve in a realistic driving. The average figure exceeds almost six liters in city tours something that does not improve in excess in the extra-urban consumption although the numbers on paper and say so. The reason is that the gear ratios are designed to town so a typical highway speeds five-speed transmission will force go too revved up leading to increased consumption.

In evasive maneuvers I have seen a good performance despite its size set where braking is only committed something in common drivers support some experienced- which produces too nervous diagonal movement that provides a sense of insecurity and lack of control.

Conclusion

The renewal of this model has led to the breath of fresh air needed to compete in an unpopular segment in our country but increasingly has more followers who rush in search of exclusivity customization capabilities and equipment. In that sense the new Peugeot 108 incorporates a number of elements rather than larger vehicles and a new design that perfectly congenial with the new philosophy of the French brand.

The three-cylinder propeller is surprisingly agile for his power and reasonable consumption albeit in exchange for a vibration and sound too obvious compared to other engines of similar configuration I could try without system stop-start for the city.

The starting price of 13620 euros is not something that sits in your favor but woe to say their complete equipment able to justify much of that amount. However there is little difference with his older brother the 208 many buyers will opt for the second option when you need more luggage capacity or carrying out of the city more frequently.
