Here comes the WIDER body next generation Peugeot 208

> Well many have asked for it and now it seems that Peugeot is listening and will give us a wider body on the 208 > > From CS
> > > > This very early next generation Peugeot 208 test mule was spotted in Sweden recently, announcing a car that should feature a new design and more interior space. > > Despite the current generation body, the mule is clearly trying to hide a wider track (see the wider wheel arches), which in turn should translate into more room inside for the driver and passengers. > > It's also safe to assume that an all-new 208 model will renounce the current car's rounded shapes and go for a more aggressive, straight-line design, similar to that of the 3008 and 5008. > > Underneath the fresh metal will be a lighter, all-new platform called CMP, which stands for "Common Modular Platform", which should make it easy for Peugeot to integrate traditional petrol and diesel engines, as well as an electrified powertrain. > > It's likely that for the next-gen 208, "electrified" will mean all-electric and not just hybrid - which is something Peugeot boss Jean-Philippe Imparato revealed during last year's Paris Auto Show, stating that both the 208 and 2008 will receive all-electric variants by the year 2021. > > At this time, it's unclear whether or not the next-gen 208's CMP platform will trickle down to the all-new Opel Corsa as well, though recent reports suggest that the Corsa (which has been delayed) will be redeveloped with PSA-based technology and architecture in time for a 2020 market launch. > > As for the 208, the all-new model could arrive in dealerships as early as next year. > > View the attachments for this post at:
