To acquire a most extreme decrease in the heaviness of the vehicle, a genuine "chase to dispense with overabundance weight" occurred in the meantime to make, generally speaking, a "prudent winding", favoring fuel utilization, inactive security and the dynamic execution of the vehicle. Every segment planned, every procedure utilized, every piece of the vehicle, and so on has been considered in view of this, by each individual from the undertaking group taking a shot at the vehicle: aluminium front shaft safeguard, size of the front subframe, laser welding of the rooftop, broad utilization of VHSS and UHSS (Very High Strength Steel and Ultra High Strength Steel) boards, soundproofing of the motor at source, and so on. At long last, the Peugeot 208 weighs 110 kg not exactly the 207 with the same 1.4l HDi motor, up to 173 kg less with the section level petrol motor of similar force; to put it plainly, an accomplishment which permits the Peugeot 208 to begin from a weight of 975 kg!
The volume of the vehicle seems etched by the wind. From the "PEUGEOT" lettering machined in the square at the highest point of the grille issues a veritable spine which crosses the cap, nibbles into the highest point of the windscreen, leaves its imprint in the focal point of the rooftop and engravings its development right to the back and the line of the boot gap. The back lights, genuine mechanical embellishments, additionally fuse a light mark with, prominently, three enlightened hooks. With their boomerang shape, and this is a specialized accomplishment, they show up at one with the body.
