Auto Express's reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.

The latest 208’s low ease of driving rating in the 2015 Driver Power survey really sticks out among a consistently average set of results: at 177th it’s quantifiably poor, and especially troublesome in the supermini segment.

Down 24 places overall from 2014, the 208 ownership experience is one of low running costs, comfort and enjoyable handling, but performance and practicality are distinctly below par. In the competitive supermini segment, Driver Power suggests the 208 is already struggling to keep up.
