Peugeot 108 review - Interior, design and technology

The 108 feels more upmarket than the 107 it replaced, while touchscreen connectivity will satisfy buyers focusing on tech

As with the old 107, the 108 is built alongside the Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1 in the Czech Republic. Although all three cars share the same platform and underpinnings, Peugeot has managed to give its version a unique style.

The ‘floating’ chrome grille and narrow headlights are designed to look upmarket, and take inspiration from the newest products in the Peugeot line-up, while the cheap-looking external boot hinges of the 107 are now hidden by a spoiler. 

There’s even a set of ‘claw print’ lights at the back to mimic the claws of the Peugeot lion badge, and if you want to add a bit of individuality and character to the looks, the company offers two-tone paint schemes and a host of funky sticker packs.

As you’d expect, the cabin is a big step up from the 107’s as well. The build quality and design aren’t on the same level as those of the Skoda Citigo, but there’s been a definite improvement. Some models have porcelain-coloured dash inserts, and while there are a few areas of hard plastic, fit and finish is better than in budget rivals such as the MG3. The switchgear feels robust and the dash is easy to get on with. 

As with the exterior, you can personalise the cabin, with dash decals to add a touch of colour, while higher spec cars come with a leather trimmed steering wheel and gearlever.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

The 108’s basic cabin architecture is carried over from the outgoing 107, but the car’s interior design is centred around a seven-inch colour touchscreen which provides a youthful, hi-tech feel. It’s a comprehensive interface, offering USB, aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity for audio devices and your smartphone. 

You also get a DAB radio and a multifunction leather steering wheel, and on top of this there’s a MirrorLink function for use with Android mobile devices. The touchscreen system is only available on Active models and up.
