The new Peugeot 108

The first pictures of the brand new Peugeot 108 have been released across the internet, as the model is spied whilst undergoing testing.

The Peugeot 108 will be forming the basis of the Citroen C1 and the Toyota Aygo

The Peugeot 108, will also be forming the basis for the Citroen C1 and the Toyota Aygo. The car will be more practical and a little bigger version of the Peugeot 107, which it will be replacing next year. Under the new naming strategy from the company, the models that end with an 8 have been designed to be a more premium vehicle and looking at the proportions of the prototype, the 108 model is looking to be just that.

Though on the spy pictures every panel of the Peugeot 108 has been hidden with extremely heavy camouflage, it is still clear to see the very noticeable changed to the agile City Vehicle. The front rounded end of the car is in keeping with the new image from the company and the styling looks like it is to be a scaled down version of the Peugeot 308 hatchback. The wheels on the Peugeot 108 are  a lot closer to the corners of the vehicle, which indicates that the wheelbase has been extended. This also means that there is likely to be improved space on the interior of the vehicle, with more swifter handling.

If you look at the rear of the new model, it has the same sort of boxy stance as the Volkswagen up, though without the squared off windows, thanks to more alluring rising lines on the vehicle.
