Peugeot 208 XY
Earlier this year, Peugeot rejuvenated the supermini car segment with the launch of the 208. This new model revolutionises customer choice with its elegance, compactness, occupant space, equipment and style.
Now, further derivatives of 208 are unveiled and coming soon after the announcement of the eagerly-awaited 208 GTi − is the new 208 XY.
The 208 XY will be a luxuriously appointed model and available in a new colour for the Marque, Purple is one of six colours available. The XY body is punctuated with chromed details, subtle touches of Purple on the Peugeot logos and the central wheel caps. The mirror casings, the fog lamp trims, the window trims and the rear skirt bead are dressed in bright chrome. On the quarter panel trim and the centre pillar, touches of gloss black complete the image
Particularly striking and visible both by day and night is the light signature which is refined by new halogen headlamps, equipped with a latest generation light guide. These carefully designed lamps with a rectangular internal structure use LED technology for the directional indicators and daytime lighting. Tightly enclosing the main beam headlamps, the floating trim of which calls to mind a cat's pupil, they give the expression of the 208 XY with an iris.
The passenger compartment is punctuated with carefully designed components. So, the vents, the side decorations of the touchscreen, the dashboard decoration, the steering wheel insert, the seat belts, the front and rear door crossbars all blend with the same interior ambiance. The aluminium pedal bracket and footrest provide the final touch to this refined interior.
