Peugeot has mildly updated its 108 city car for 2018, following revisions for its two sister cars – the Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1. It’s on sale now from £9,225.

A new Euro 6.2 engine has been introduced to the line-up and is available in either 1.0-litre 72 or 1.0-litre 72 2-tronic guise. The Euro 6.2 engine is claimed to be more economical than the outgoing engines, with minor reductions in CO2 emissions too.

The Allure and Collection trim levels have two new metallic paint options, Green Fizz and Calvi Blue, while the Allure trim model also features a Raven Black roof and gloss black door mirrors. The 5 door Top! Cabrio trim model includes a Green Fizz electric retractable fabric roof.

Tech has been updated too, with an improved seven-inch colour touchscreen with Mirror Screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity topping the bill. The Mirror Screen function allows the driver to display compatible apps from their mobile device onto the car’s touchscreen and manage them using the vehicle’s controls. The seven-inch touchscreen is available as standard on Active trim level and above, and comes equipped with DAB digital radio, a USB/3.5mm jack for external audio devices, and a glossy black surround.

Peugeot says improvements have been made to the 108’s safety equipment, including the Active City Brake and Lane Departure Warning System options, which now feature traffic sign recognition functionality too. These safety features are available on the Allure and Collection trim levels as a £480 option.
