Peugeot has unveiled a new limited-run special edition 208 hatchback.
The 208 XS adds an additional trim level to the line-up with enhanced personalisation and ‘increased desirability’ says the French brand. Available with the 1.2-litre PureTech 82hp petrol engine, the new 208 XS comes in both three and five door body styles and builds on the Active model’s specification with 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, exterior personalisation and white paint as standard.
The special XS edition is limited to 2,000 vehicles and brings additional personalisation to the package with a choice of five colours and two exterior personalisation packs. Bianca White, Nera Black metallic or the Ice Silver textured paint come with the Lime Yellow exterior pack. Virtual Blue and Orange Power metallic come with the Menthol White exterior pack.
These five colours were chosen specifically to complement the personalisation options of the XS variant. This includes the Technical Grey Titane alloy wheels, Equaliser grille with gloss black surround, gloss black door mirrors with coloured accents in Menthol White or Lime Yellow and Fog light finishers. To further distinguish the XS from other variants, XS badging is present on both front wings.
The Peugeot i-Cockpit includes a compact sports steering wheel which offers ‘precise steering and improved manoeuvrability’ according to Peugeot, while the 7” multifunction colour touch screen puts all the functionality at the driver’s fingertips. As well as the additional standard equipment, all 208 XS models also includes Carplay, DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB, Cruise control with speed limiter and air-conditioning.
The Peugeot 208 XS is available to order now, priced from £13,495 OTR.
