Peugeot reveals stylish new 208 Black Edition

Black edition 208 gets 81bhp PureTech petrol engine and £14,595 price tag

Peugeot 208 black edition

Peugeot has quietly revealed a new special edition version of its 208 supermini, which the carmaker says will become a ‘key’ variant of the three-door 208 model.

Called the 208 Black Edition, it gets a handful of unique styling tweaks and finishes to make it stand out against the rest of the range.

Three paint colour finishes are available – Nera Black, Bianca White and Hurricane Grey, and all are combined with gloss black finishes on various exterior parts, such as the door mirrors. 16-inch gloss black alloy wheels with white laser engraving are fitted as standard.

Inside, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display is fitted, alongside Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, smartphone MirrorLink and a DAB digital radio. 

Only one engine is available – the 81bhp 1.2-litre PureTech 82 petrol. Peugeot claims up to 62.8mpg on a combined run. Prices for the 208 Black Edition kick off from £14,595, and it is on sale now.

While the current 208 was facelifted in 2015, it’s been on sale since 2012, so Peugeot no doubt has a new version of its Ford Fiesta rival in the pipeline. Auto Express reported last year that a new version looks likely to arrive in 2018, boasting sharper looks, new engines, a new platform and an all-electric version could be on the cards too.

Are you looking forward to the next Peugeot 208? Let us know in the comments.

The new Peugeot 208 is great to look at and offers good performance, but can’t eclipse the best in the supermini class.
