Peugeot 208 restyled (2023): first info

Despite the current success of the 208, Peugeot is already working on renewing its city car. A restyled version is expected for 2023. Here is what we already know about it …

Launched at the end of 2019, the new and second generation of 208 is a real cardboard box. Peugeot’s city car was quite simply the France’s best-selling new passenger car in 2020 with 92,796 units sold, ahead of the Renault Clio V (84,031 copies) and the Peugeot 2008 II (66,698). A trend which is confirmed in the first half of 2021. Better still, the little lioness is currently establishing itself as one of the most popular models in Europe.

Despite this success Peugeot is already thinking about what to do next. The brand is already working on mid-career restyling of his bestseller. A revised and corrected version of the 208 is expected during the year 2023. But let the fans be reassured, the car will evolve simply by small touches.

At the front, the fang-shaped LED daytime running lights should for example be extended, as should the large black cross bar at the rear.

A technological update

On board, we will find without surprise the famous i-Cockpit and its counters which can be read over the small steering wheel. The instrument cluster will be fully digital and the central touchscreen could be enlarged. A technological update is also expected with a new generation of multimedia system and advanced or even new driving aids.

An e-208 PSE on the program

Finally, engine side, this restyled 208 will leave with the essential block 1.2L PureTech gasoline. It should also mark the debut of the micro-hybridization while his 100% electric version e-208, strong today of 136 ch, should benefit from a more efficient battery, with a capacity greater than the current 50 kWh, and a new engine which will be available in several power levels. A sports variant e-208 PSE (200 hp?) Would be in the boxes …
