The French automaker PSA Peugeot Citroën created a supermini under the B-segment, which was called the Peugeot 208. This car was produced starting in the year 2012, and it was first displayed to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. This was produced as a three door hatchback and a five door hatchback, and it follows an FF layout or a front engine, front wheel drive layout.
Peugeot is the second largest carmaker that is based in Europe, and it is a major French automobile brand. The 208 began production in June of 2012 in Mulhoiuse, Alsace and in Poissy, Yvelines. These are the locations of the brand’s plants in France, but the car was also later assembled in Trnava, Slovakia and in Porto Real, Brazil.
The Peugeot 208’s design is led by the French car designer, Pierre Autheir, who later became famous because of it. The interior design was done by Adam Bazydlo, the exterior design done by Sylvain Henry, and the colour and trim were done by Marie Sanou. The 208 has a PSA PF1 platform and is is classed as a supermini, with a panoramic glass roof surrounded with LED lights and a tablet computer-like screen.
