Peugeot 108 review - can Peugeot's smallest raise a smile? - MPG and running costs

Peugeot's 108 city hatch has stiff competition against both its own siblings and the impressive VW Up

  • Easy to drive and park, tiny footprint ideal for crowded cities
  • Feels unpolished and crude, tiring at high speeds

MPG and running costs

The 108 GT-Line that we drove is rated at 65.7mpg, slightly lower than the comparable 1.0-litre Volkswagen Up, but still impressive for such a simple machine. If you were expecting the 80+ mpg that Peugeot claim is possible in the larger 208 HDi you might be disappointed, although cars with mpg figures that high rarely meet them in the real world anyway. 

Insurance is also bound to be very inexpensive making this a perfect option for first time drivers.
