Peugeot 208 gt 2019. 2019 Peugeot 208 Vs 2019 Renault Clio

Peugeot 208 (2019) : A bord de la nouvelle 208

Peugeot 208 gt 2019

Believe it or not, the Clio rides on a new platform that, for the first time ever, gives Renault the chance to also offer it in hybrid form. Where it really sets itself apart, though, is in the way it goes in, through, and out of a corner. The design is slick, material choice is strong and perceived quality is high. A 50kWh battery is mated to a 100kW electric motor, which happens to be 134bhp and 192lb ft in old money. A range of 211 miles is confirmed, with three options for charging: 20+ hours using a standard three-pin plug, eight hours with a wallbox and an 80% charge in 30 minutes with a roadside 100kW rapid charger. The idea is that electricity is just another form of powertrain — you pick diesel, petrol or electric depending on your driving. The Renault comparison is interesting — the is also being unveiled at Geneva, and it will be electrified with a hybrid version in 2020.

Peugeot is offering a host of driver assistance technology including adaptive cruise control, active lane keeping assist and automatic headlight dipping. The Clio will be available with several small, mostly turbocharged gasoline engines, as well as a couple of diesels. Peugeot says all these power plants, oil burner included, meet the stringent Euro 6. But if electric power works best, no big deal. There are three petrols and a diesel to choose from.

The battery is covered by an 8 year, 100,000 mile manufacturer warranty. Unlike the 208, and its C-pillar badge placement, the Clio looks like it could have some sort of badge placed in the design detail created by the crease that starts close to the top rear part of the front fender. Inside the factory building new 208 Remember the days when Peugeots were assembled in Ryton, Coventry? Expect a thick-rimmed version of the tiny not-round steering wheel that Peugeot uses in the 208, with contrasting stitching, perforated leather on the rim, and maybe even a center marker like you see in some racing cars. And on paper the e-208 looks reasonably impressive. The more aggressive setting allows you to drive the e-208 mainly using one pedal, which quickly becomes your default style with familiarity. The other stand-out cabin detail is the fold-down flap under the piano-key switches in the centre console which can house a smart phone in several different ways while it charges — either inductively or via two charging points — and has an angled lip to display its screen towards the occupants if required too.

Both cars need to be driven back to back in order to make a final decision I have a hunch the Clio will be the better of the two around a twisty road - and you should definitely test drive both before buying. Both engines spin freely and quietly with a little lag at low revs, while the gearshifts are decent — tight if rubbery in the manual, mostly imperceptible in the auto.

It also uses the same body and interior as the regular 208, and will be assembled on the same production line. Interestingly, though, the 99 and 128bhp petrols can be equipped with an eight-speed auto - something unheard of in the mainstream supermini segment. There is little to remind of the previous 208, except for the aforementioned small helm and the high-placed instrument cluster. That plant closed in 2006 — uncoincidentally within months of Peugeot 207 production beginning in Trnava, Slovakia. A MyPeugeot app will allow owners of the e-208 to manage the charging of the battery and the climate control remotely.

This feels very much a point-and-squirt device, and on its stiffened suspension the chassis never delivers much in the way of flow. The new 208 is only in the first stage of production integration. It wants the car's radical exterior design and imaginative cabin to get people into dealerships, where they'll then decide with powertrain best suits their habits. And thus contributes the automatic petrol engines in this segment the yardsticks. Unlike the Clio, a car whose interior is designed to feel airy and friendly, the 208 looks like it wants to cocoon you more in its midst, but unless it has a low enough driving position, it may end up feeling a bit awkward.
