It has already been four years since the Peugeot 208 was renewed. A 2nd generation officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019, just a few stands away from its lifelong rival, the Renault Clio. She also offered a brand new version during the Swiss show, but will ultimately remain dominated by the lioness. And for good reason, it has managed to stay on top of sales for almost four years, and does not seem to have suffered the passage of time. In 2023 alone, there are in fact no less than 88,812 units which have been sold, against only 64,012 for its competitor. But now, however, it’s time for a restyling for the star of the French market.

Marking a turning point in the brand’s stylistic direction when it launched, the Peugeot 208 is expected to fall a little more in line with this mid-career facelift. And for good reason, the city car will adopt a front end similar to the other models in the range, including the new 308 and the 408. We will find the light signature in the shape of fangs, which will obviously be slightly revised. The grille will also benefit from a new design, inspired by the compact, while the shield will also be slightly revised. The rear should evolve more smoothly, probably with a new light signature. The driving position will most likely remain the same, perhaps simply benefiting from a software update.

For the time being, Peugeot has not yet given details on the developments which will concern the range of engines, we can already count on an increase in the autonomy of the e-208. If it currently peaks at 400 kilometers, a small update could still increase this value, without touching 51 kWh battery whose capacity increased last September. It could be that a new version, a little more efficient will also expand the range. But the chances of a PSE variant arriving seem quite low… We should know more over the next few months, while the city car will be restyled during the year.
