If you’re looking for a supermini that’ll help you to stand out from the crowd, the new Peugeot 208 Black Edition could tick all of your boxes. Perfect as a first car, small family car or city runabout, this new model is certainly making its mark.

Five years into its successful track record, Peugeot has launched the latest version of the 208, styled throughout with gloss black accents to create a truly eye-catching design. 16” alloy wheels, an equaliser grille and wing mirrors all get the Peugeot 208 Black Edition treatment, with front fog lights also finished with gloss black and the same striking laser engraving that is evident on the alloy wheels.

Tinted rear windows complete the sporty kerb appeal of this sophisticated little motor.

Despite its name, the Peugeot 208 Black Edition is available in Hurricane Grey and Bianca White as well as the expected Nera Black. Packed with tech such as electric ‘one touch’ windows for the driver, cruise control, heated door mirrors and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, the newest Peugeot 208 also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to make you feel truly at home in the driving seat.

All of the 208 Black Edition’s functions are easily accessed from Peugeot’s innovatively designed i-Cockpit® where a compact leather sports steering wheel, ergonomically designed for a better driver posture, provides excellent manoeuvrability.

Catie Munnings, 2016 FIA Ladies European Rally Champion, was one of those lucky to test drive the new Peugeot 208 Black Edition. The 19-year-old’s experience of driving the Peugeot 208 as a rally car makes her the perfect critic. And she was very impressed, saying: “I think the Peugeot 208 Black Edition is a brilliant car too. It looks and feels great and I really think its sporting appeal sets it apart – it’s basically any young person’s dream car!”

It’s not just the good looks of the Peugeot 208 Black Edition that makes it such a great choice for new drivers. Reasonable insurance costs (Group 10), a great combined MPG of 62.8 and the same 5-star NCAP safety rating as the rest of the 208 range are features that will be top of the list for most car buyers.

The 1.2-litre PureTech 82, three-cylinder petrol engine with five-speed manual gearbox provides a nippy performance when needed so your new motor will move as well as it looks.
