Peugeot 108

(2014 – present)

The Peugeot 108 is a small, city-class, five-door hatchback. It is also available as a cabriolet version, which features a full-length fabric sunroof in a similar vein to the Fiat 500. The current model was launched in 2014, replacing the previous Peugeot 107.

The 108 is essentially identical to the Citroën C1 and Toyota Aygo, with the three models developed together and built at the same factory in the Czech Republic. It has been speculated that, when the current model ends production (expected to be in 2021), it will not be replaced. With Peugeot’s parent company Stellantis now also owning Fiat, it is likely that any future Peugeot city car will be based on the new, all-electric Fiat 500.

Despite its age, the Peugeot 108 has continued to receive generally positive reviews from the UK motoring media. Its overall Expert Rating, however, falls a long way short of the class-leading Hyundai i10. In addition, its previous four-star safety rating from Euro NCAP has expired as the car no longer meets the required standards for that score.

The 108 has been praised for its low running costs, simplicity to operate and overall driving dynamics, but criticised for a lack of refinement compared to newer rivals.

Safety rating

Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

No safety rating

The Peugeot 108 was assessed by Euro NCAP back in 2014 and achieved a four-star rating. However, this rating expired in January 2021 and is no longer valid.

Euro NCAP’s crash testing standards are raised almost every year, and ratings will expire when a vehicle no longer meets the latest standards for that rating. Sometimes a vehicle will be re-tested against the newer standards and awarded a new (usually lower) rating, but this has not happened in the case of the Peugeot 108.

Eco rating

Independent emissions and efficiency ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

The Peugeot 108 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP, and only a few cars have do far been assessed. The 108 is now an old car, so it is likely that it will never be tested by Green NCAP. If it does ever happen, we’ll update this page with the results.

Security rating

Independent vehicle theft and security ratings from Thatcham Research

No security rating

The Peugeot 108 has not been tested for anti-theft protection by Thatcham Research. This is a new initiative that was launched in 2019 to assess, in particular, the security of new cars with keyless entry and keyless start systems. Owing to the car’s age, it’s unlikely to ever be assessed.
