Peugeot 208 All New 2023 Model Unveiled

Will this all new 208 arrive in Malaysia to provide premium small car motoring fun

Right now Peugeot in Malaysia has just SUV’s (and a pickup truck) in its showrooms and we think it’s time for a hot hatch to be introduced. Especially a good looking one like this all new award winning 208 with a range of powertrain options.

Well, we know that Peugeot has had a rocky ‘life’ in Malaysia and now under ‘Berjaya Auto’ we could see more variety in all showrooms.

The previous 208 sold well as it was a welcomed addition to our small car segment. Yes, a premium small car.

Now with the 208 being refreshed, becoming even more irresistible thanks to its a 100% electric version with a range of 400 km, its reinvented design, cutting-edge technologies and driving pleasure along with new powertrains, it is time again.

Two types of on-board chargers are available to suit all uses and charging solutions: as standard, a 7.4kW single-phase charger and, as an option, an 11kW three-phase charger.

Estimated recharge times from 20% to 80% are less than 25 minutes from a fast charger (100kW), 4 hours 40 minutes from a Wallbox (7.4 kW) and 11 hours 10 minutes from a reinforced socket (3.2kW).

New hybrid powertrains

For customers looking for their first taste of electrification, the new 208 offers two new 48V HYBRID powertrains from PEUGEOT, comprising a latest-generation PureTech 100bhp and 136bhp petrol engine, combined with the e-DCS6 dual-clutch electrified 6-speed gearbox which includes an electric motor.


Thanks to a battery that recharges while driving, this technology offers extra torque at low revs and up to 15% lower fuel consumption. In urban driving, the new 208 HYBRID 100 and HYBRID 136 can operate more than 50% of the time in 100% zero-emission electric mode.


The range of engines

For customers looking for the most accessible petrol versions, the new 208 range offers two particularly economical and efficient engines:

  • PureTech 75: 3-cylinder 1.2 petrol engine with 75bhp, equipped with a Stop & Start system, combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
  • PureTech 100: 3-cylinder 1.2 petrol engine with 100bhp, equipped with a Stop & Start system, combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The latest generation of PEUGEOT connected information systems

The new 208 now comes with the PEUGEOT i-Connect system as standard, and all versions can be fitted with the PEUGEOT i-Connect Advanced system as an option.

Both are controlled via the central 10-inch high-definition touchscreen, which is easily customisable, multi-window with widgets or shortcuts, very easy to use and as responsive as a smartphone. It is easy to swipe through the different menus from left to right, top to bottom for notifications, or even with a 3-finger tap to bring up the applications homepage.

It is easy to return to the main page at any time by pressing the ‘Home’ piano key at the bottom of the screen. At the top of the screen, a permanent banner displays information on the outside temperature and air conditioning, the position in the widget pages, connectivity data, notifications and the time.

The PEUGEOT i-Connect system offers full connectivity thanks to a wireless mirroring function (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto), as well as the experience is complete with the PEUGEOT i-Connect Advanced featuring high-performance TomTom connected navigation. The map is displayed on the entire 10-inch screen to make it easier to read.

System updates are carried out ‘over the air’. On the PEUGEOT i-Connect Advanced, the “OK PEUGEOT” natural language voice recognition command provides access to all requests relating to infotainment functions.
