Nobody cares. But I like how this new 208 looks. It's a pretty car. The rear lights remind me of Porsche 718. The electric version is also very cool.

It does look really good, And has a ton of potential, But Peugeot wont do anything great with it, And i love Peugeot interiors, But sadly nothing exciting.

E-version is exciting. But too expensive, sadly.

They figured GenZ are not interested in oldschool snobbery like GTIs, and rather want electric drive and electronic gadget trinkets :D

I dig the e version but it wouldn't cost them billions in R&D to make a powerful 200 PS GTI version too.
