The Peugeot 208 hatchback was last spotted on test in June 2017. This time around, three units of the hatchback have been spotted on test. Registered with the Pune RTO, the 208 hatchback might have been brought to India for homologation and testing purpose. PSA, the parent company of Peugeot, has signed a joint Venture agreement with the CK Birla Group to make as well as sell vehicles and components in India by 2020.

As seen in the images, the Peugeot 208 gets a sweptback headlamp cluster with projector lamps. The vehicle gets a black grille with chrome and round fog lamps. Chrome inserts can be seen on the front bumper as well. The sides get a nice flowing design with larger front windows, blackened B-pillar, ORVMs with integrated turn signal lights, alloy wheels and a slightly sloping roofline. As for the interior, the hatchback gets a multi-functional three-spoke steering wheel with silver inserts. A touch of chrome can also be seen around the AC side vents and inside door handles. The vehicle is expected to get a touchscreen infotainment system along with dual front airbags as standard at the time of launch.

Although the company is yet to reveal the technical specs for the Indian market, we believe the vehicle might be offered in petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol variant of Peugeot 208 is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre three cylinder engine that generates 80bhp. The diesel version on the other hand is expected to be powered by a 1.4-litre engine. More details about the vehicle will be known over the next few months.
