Lemaître finished 3 min 30 sec behind the Comte de Dion whose steam-powered car was ineligible for the official competition. Five Peugeots qualified for the key event, and all finished. This marked the debut of Michelin pneumatic tyres in racing, also on a Peugeot; they proved insufficiently durable. Nevertheless, the vehicles were still very much horseless carriages in appearance and were steered with a tiller. Three Peugeots were entered in the Paris–Bordeaux–Paris, where these were beaten by Panhard's car (despite an average speed of 20.8 km/h and taking the 31,500 franc prize. Peugeot was an earlier pioneer in motor racing, with Albert Lemaître winning the world's first motor race, the Paris–Rouen, in a 3 hp Peugeot.
The 1.2-liter, 74-horsepower petrol was stunning, pressing 14.9 seconds and reaching a premier speed of 62 miles per hour. The electric motor lies underneath the hood and the 50 kW battery lies beneath the rear seats. The Peugeot 208 series offers petrol, diesel and a complete electric version. Engine options include a 75-horsepower 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine, a 99-horsepower or 128-horsepower gasoline, a 99-horsepower 1.5-liter diesel, and a 134-horsepower EV version. The fully electric e-208 offers 217 miles tested by WLTP and its packaging is just like the same petrol or diesel 208 due to the CMP platform. A great option in every respects would be the 99-horsepower petrol option, because it has a six-speed manual transmission and a top speed of 9.7 seconds at 117 mph.
A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system sits atop the 208's dashboard as standard, including DAB radio and Bluetooth, but more importantly Apple CarPlay and Android Auto too. An option is really a 10.0-inch version of exactly the same system which also includes a built-in sat-nav. However, you're better off counting on the traffic info that the smartphone navigation apps offer, and Apple and Android's user experience is much better too, Peugeot native system has a few way too many small, tricky-to-hit on-screen buttons.
However, it's nice that you trust the traffic data supplied by your smartphone's navigation apps, and the user experience of Apple and Android is better still, with the Peugeot native system having not many small, tricky buttons. The choice is really a 10.0-inch version of the exact same system, which also incorporates an integral sat-nav. The 2022 Peugeot 208 7.0-inch touchscreen entertainment system is standardly on the control panel of the 208, which includes DAB radio and Bluetooth, but more to the point, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2022 Peugeot 208 scored four out of five stars in last year's Euro NCAP crash tests, where other cars of this type, such as the new Renault Clio, finished in the top five. The possible lack of a fifth star does not make the 208 a dangerous car. 2022 Peugeot 208 also includes the eye of drivers who drive at speeds above 40 miles and analyze the movements of the steering wheels to find out caution. There are lots of vehicles available, from adaptive cruise control, lane detection assistance, to road sign recognition and blind tracking. The new 208 performed well in all categories, but lost points because of the lack of adequate whipping protection in adult rear passengers, which means buyers should consider the new 208 if they're constantly carrying adults in the back. It's will be a disappointing news for Peugeot, since many cars will achieve a complete five-star safety level.
This change is on the basis of the old generation 208 GTi decorated with chrome accents at all trim levels which are on the Peugeot 208 standard. The rear view also looks wider and lower, and there's a GTi badge located at the bottom right of the hold can make this car look more sporty. From the rear side, the Peugeot 208 GTi 2022 display is adorned with an alternative and sporty bumper that combines the exhaust tip that looks more pointed, and possibly even has twin exhausts like those of the Peugeot 308 2022. It is expected that the newest generation of the All New Peugeot 208 GTi will turn into a black satin or matte accent.
The 2022 Peugeot 208 1.2-liter PureTech petrol unit is a 128-horsepower model having an eight-speed automatic transmission that drives 0-62 mph in 8-6 seconds and a premier speed of 129 mph. The 1.5 BlueHDi 99bhp diesel is only available as a six-speed manual and has a premier speed of 0-62 mph in 10.2 seconds, with performance in the middle. With an electrical of 50 kWh, the e-208 has 134 horsepower, but can stop most of its 260Nm of torque. Acceleration is accelerating significantly, with all Peugeot electric cars reaching 62 amps in 8.1 seconds.
We also hope that the 2022 Peugeot 208 GTi Sport carries a luxury electric supercharger powertrain that helps increase power, or an electrical motor. With some improvements given in the new 2022 Peugeot 208 GTi Sport must end up being better compared to the previous generation. With the inclusion of hybrid technology, it will have the ability to be in today's ranks of cars. In terms of features that require improvement such as increased suspension that is firmer, bigger brakes, a powerful engine with a capacity of 1.6 liters or higher than that number, and can provide power around 200 horsepower, in addition to a couple of touches of visual enhancement to the Interior and Exterior designed to reflect credentials as a sports car. By eliminating the weight automatically makes the vehicle better in any situation and condition. More and more manufacturers are making their performance cars a lightweight hybrid and will surely serve 208 small GTi well.
