Adapted braking, ESP as standard

The braking system is in line with the performance of the engines. The 208 is fitted with front brake discs in 2 different sizes: 266 x 22 mm and 302 x 26 mm for the 1.6 l THP 115 kW (156 hp) version. At the rear, the range is fitted with 249 x 9 mm discs or 8" drums for the 3 cylinder petrol engines, the 1.4 l HDi PEF and the 1.4 l e-HDi PEF.

Another notable fact for a vehicle, all 208s are fitted with ESP as standard of the new generation in Europe, including ASR (traction control), CDS (stability control), EBA (emergency braking assistance) and EBFD (electronic brake force distribution). This ESP can be disconnected by the driver on the Peugeot 208 1.6 l THP 115kW (156 hp).
