  • New high-spec Allure Premium Special Edition trim
  • Allure Premium sits below sporty GT models
  • Available to order now, from £16,565/£169 a month
The Peugeot 208 range has gained a new trim level, and improvements to its range of finance packages. The new trim is available to order now.

The 208 – a rival to small cars like the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Kia Rio – is now available in Allure Premium Special Edition trim, paired with the 1.2-litre PureTech 82 petrol engine. With this new trim, the car comes with 16-inch matt-black alloy wheels; electric, heated and folding door mirrors; dark tinted rear windows; and a choice of ten paint finishes, including Orange Power.

Inside, meanwhile, the new trim brings a panoramic glass roof, along with ambient lighting, electric rear windows, a rear parking aid, a reversing camera, and all the usual smartphone connectivity. A 3D connected sat-nav system is available on the options list, along with plenty of exterior personalisation.
In the 208 range, Allure Premium is one step above Allure trim, which sits above the Black Edition and entry-level Active trim, but below the sportier GT Line, GTI Prestige, and GTI by Peugeot Sport.

Peugeot is also offering savings through its ‘Summer Drives’ initiative on finance deals. Peugeot Passport and Just Add Fuel (which comes with three years’ insurance from age 18 with a Telematics black box) are available with 2.9% APR representative, and a £2,000 deposit contribution across the range.

Or, customers can save up to £1,100 on the Allure Premium Special Edition – costing from £169 a month on a PCP contract, or £600 on the Black Edition. The new trim and finance offers are available for UK customers now.
