Video review – Peugeot 108 1.0 Automatic

The little 108 looks at the mountain and gets ready for its big moment …

On location in Greece, I took the 108 from Peugeot on review.  For this drive I used the 1.0 petrol engine that is supplied by Toyota and also found in the Toyota Aygo (spoiler alert – this is a lively engine well matched to this little car, but it’s 5 speed auto box struggles with elevation changes when negotiating the hilly test drive in the Greek mountains).

Overall I was impressed with this little car and really enjoyed scooting it around the towns and villages in Greece.  Have a look at the videos below to see what I thought of it.  Below the videos you’ll find the specs table, and also a list of recalls for this particular French car.
