Peugeot Reports Strong Sales in UK Due to 208 Supermini
Fortunately, last year they remembered they are actually quite good at making superminis, and they corrected the oversize blob that was the 207 with a much smaller, cuter car. Its successor, the 208, is without a doubt a successful car, capturing the zest of the old 205.
Peugeot's design boldness has been rewarded with strong sales figures in Britain, traditionally a strong market for superminis. Deliveries of the 208 totaled over 30,000 during the first quarter of 2013, just as the new XY and GTi versions are about to hit the market.
Overall, the French carmaker reported a 6.3% increase in demand from British customers. The other top selling models in the range – the compact 107, 308 hatchback, and 3008 Crossover – also remain very popular with customers.
