Launched in 2012 as a replacement for the ageing 207, the Peugeot 208 was designed from a clean sheet and bolted onto an upgraded version of the PSA PF1 platform. It also received new and updated four-cylinder engines and debuted a couple of three-cylinder gasoline units dubbed PureTech. Another important feature that debuted with the hatchback is the i-Cockpit, combining the compact steering wheel with high-level instrumentation, and TouchScreen technology. The i-Cockpit is now available in just about any Peugeot out there. In 2013, the 208 spawned a race-spec T16 Pikes Peak version that set a new record at the famous hill-climb event. A facelift was introduced for the 2015 model year.
