Peugeot 108 review - can Peugeot's smallest raise a smile? - Interior and tech

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

Interior and tech

Think of a warehouse apartment filled with IKEA furniture and you wouldn’t be far off the 108’s interior. Significantly revised in the transformation between 107 and 108, the interior still retains the same pared back feel, but tries to liven things up with bright glossy panels on the doors and parts of the dash.

The Stormtrooper-esque dashboard is designed around a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system on higher trimmed models. Our top-spec GT-line included in-built sat-nav and climate control, although a smartphone mirroring function was notable by its absence. Elsewhere in the interior, the soft seats lack support, and although they were wrapped in a material that resembles leather in our test car, struggle to lift cabin ambience above average. It is a definite improvement on the previous Peugeot 107 though.
