According to rumours that have surfaced within the last 24 hours, Peugeot’s latest incarnation of their supermini, the 208, is set to be revealed very soon, possibly as soon as next week.
Many are claiming that the release date is set for the 2nd of November, next Wednesday to be precise. Peugeot has high hopes for their 207 replacement, with claimed reports that they are aiming to sell 500,000 a year.
There are also reports that the new car will be cheaper than the current 207, to make it more competitive with the VW Polo and Ford Fiesta. Rumours also suggest that on the exterior the new car is smaller than the 207, but more spacious on the interior.
Peugeot also aim on bringing back the spirit of the 205 GTi with this new car. The plan is to make the car lighter than the 207 and fitting the 1.6l petrol engine from the RCZ.
Lets hope the result is as good as these rumours, because if they are, Peugeot could have a real market winner on their hands.
