Peugeot 208: First drive review

James Baggott

In the glory days, Peugeot shifted 7.7 million 206s and the iconic 205 before that found 5.2 million homes. However, the lacklustre 207 never caught buyers' imaginations - flopping with just 2.3 million shifted during its lifecycle.

Now the French firm is hoping the all new 208 can bring back the glory days and sales success to its dealers once again.
