For 12 years, Citroen, Peugeot and Toyota have been maintaining mutually beneficial relationships. Since the car makers shook hands, the Peugeot 108, Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1 have been dominating the city vehicle car world.
First launched in 2014, the second-generation vehicles were treated to a personality transplant via a bunch of catchy visual tweaks to enable them to leave rivals behind in many regards.
The 2017 Peugeot 108 PureTech 82 was designed to serve as the more upmarket choice of the trio, compared with the chic C1 and the fun-loving Aygo. In this case, we’re dealing with a 1.2-litre PureTech petrol powertrain, offering potential customers up to 81bhp and 70lb ft. For no more than 10.9 seconds, 2017 Peugeot 108 PureTech 82 will bring you to 62mph. 106mph – that’s the top speed of this vehicle.
A short-travel clutch and a perfectly weighted steering can hardly disappoint potential purchasers. As for the car’s interior, it shares a lot with the VW Up, including the hollow-feeling doors and iffy plastics scattered around.
