Renewed sensations, thanks to an innovative design and equipment

The 208 also succeeds in renewing the driving pleasure of its driver through these new instruments and controls. With its small steering wheel, but also its instrument panel placed in a high position and its large colour touch screen, the 208 offers its user an entirely new driving experience. Its ergonomics provide sensations of manoeuvrability and agility at low speed in particular.

These indicative sensations are served by its electric power steering. A new "brushless type" steering system, developed on the vehicle to take into account its new combination in terms of balance and weight. As on the 207, the steering has to conform to the expertise of the Marque: precise and informative, while being particularly manoeuvrable at low speeds.

At the end of 2012, the Peugeot 208 will acquire further equipment, rare in the B segment, also making the driver's daily life in town considerably easier: the Park Assist function. When a parallel parking space is identified, the system manoeuvres the steering automatically to park the vehicle without any assistance from the driver who simply has to control the accelerator and brake pedals. Magic!

According to version, the 208 may also be equipped with static directional lighting which optimises lateral visibility at low speed (below 25 mph [40 km/h]) in urban conditions, at intersections, during parking manoeuvres, on winding roads, etc. In fact, the light beam from one of the two foglamps lights the inside of the corresponding turn, according to the angle of the steering wheel and the pressing of the direction indicator.
