Peugeot continues to evolve in development of the new generation of 208 to present the next year at the Geneva Motor Show (March). He has not yet published official information or photos, but in France they can imagine how it can look.
It was the average Frenchman Auto-Moto, who was responsible for drawing these design sketches (unofficially, of course), where it appears what appears to be The total renovation of the compact hatchback.
To draw them, it was based on the camouflaged devices that were photographed during a test session and on the strong rumors that circulate. It is almost a fact that the future Peugeot 208 will take more design features of the new 508, the brand new generation of the great sedan of the French brand (could arrive in 2019).
Based on these pictures, the relationship between the next 208 and the new 508 is based primarily on the front and rear optical devices, which adopts the format already seen in the sedan and on the grill.
In October, images of the interior of the future 208 were filtered, and in them it was observed that on the inside it would also "imitate" 508. It will have the in-cockpit driving position consisting of a fully digital instrumental, sporty and smaller size steering wheel, and a large central touch screen.
Unlike 508, 208 will have the central air valves below the touchscreen, even though the air conditioners will be very similar. They share the style with 3008 and 5008 sold in the country.
It is not confirmed whether the changes are seen in the European 208 They will reach 208 South American, currently manufactured in Brazil. But the rumor is strong: the new generation of this model has great chances of appearing in Argentina.
There are secrecy in the PSA Group regarding these versions, mainly maintained in the recent $ 320 million investment, which will be installed in El Palomar (currently models of Peugeot and Citroën), the new CMP platform.
This architecture will be used to produce the new generations of compact PSA cars. Therefore, it would not be unreasonable to imagine that 208 will at some point be Argentinean. There is no date, but It could be fresh from 2020.
208 produced in Brazil are one of the best-selling cars in Argentina so far this year thanks to 21,958 units. It is in the top ten of general patenting in the period January-November.
