SMMT Test Day - Peugeot 208 THP

One of the cars I was excited to drive at the SMMT test day was this one; the Peugeot 208 THP. This is the engine that will be the base for the planned GTi version, and that's exciting. What you should also know is that the THP is exciting enough. With 156PS from its 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, it certainly doesn't hang about. The styling of the 208 is extremely impressive, and the interior is surprisingly spacious. This car handles extremely well, partly thanks to a wheelbase that seems long for such a small car. The 208 certainly lived up to the hype I had for it, and I'd love to give one a proper test for a week. Watch this space...
