Peugeot has been designing the interiors of its 208, 2008 and 308 with a small steering wheel and a speedometer that sits above the rim of the wheel. The 108 instead has a speedometer housing that forms part of the steering column and is adjustable for height. There’s also a central 7-inch touch-screen display which can display the screen of a connected smartphone, allowing the driver to operate their phone from the car’s touch-screen.
The new Peugeot 108 will have its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday 4th March, and will go on sale in the UK on 1st July 2014.
