Η Peugeot ανακοίνωσε πως το 208 είναι διαθέσιμο με δύο ματ αποχρώσεις. Τα Ice Grey και Ice Silver έχουν εγγύηση εφόρου ζωής, με την Peugeot να χρειάστηκε 4 χρόνια για να δημιουργήσει ένα ειδικό βερνίκι με σωματίδια διοξειδίου του πυριτίου και μικρο-σφαιρίδια από πολυαμίδιο. Τα σωματίδια διοξειδίου του πυριτίου δίνουν την ματ όψη, την ανθεκτικότητα και την ευκολότερη φροντίδα, σε σχέση με ένα παραδοσιακό ματ χρώμα, ενώ τα μικρο-σφαιρίδια από πολυαμίδιο δίνουν στο χρώμα την ιδιαίτερη υφή του.
Το κόστος των χρωμάτων ανέρχεται περίπου στα 800 ευρώ, παρόμοιο με το κόστος των παραδοσιακών περλέ αποχρώσεων της Peugeot. Τα δύο νέα χρώματα θα είναι διαθέσιμα από τον Ιούνιο.
NEW PEUGEOT 208: A SPLASH OF STYLE WITH INNOVATIVE WORLD-FIRST TEXTURED PAINT
- Unique textured paint launched on new PEUGEOT 208
- Two contemporary colours which are subtly granular to the touch
- Priced at £645 – exactly the same as pearlescent paint
- More personalisation options including exterior and interior packs
- Part of a range of enhancements to 208, including new technology and improved engines
PEUGEOT’s reputation for striking exterior design is second to none. With the eagerly anticipated arrival of the new PEUGEOT 208, on sale from June, the brand is launching a world-first technology for a production vehicle – a unique ‘textured paint’ finish.
Exclusive to the popular supermini and further evidence of the sophisticated style now running through its entire PEUGEOT model range, distinctive textured paint adds a contemporary twist to the idea of customer choice and individual personalisation.
The textured paint is currently available in two colours, Ice Grey and Ice Silver. For even greater individuality, cars can be specified with an optional Lime Yellow or Menthol White personalisation pack. These are available for the exterior, interior or both.
On offer from launch in June, textured paint offers several benefits. First and foremost, it emphasises the striking, modern lines of the PEUGEOT 208, reinforcing its dynamism and elegant design.
Secondly, the texture – which is subtly granular to the touch – is more hard-wearing and easier to care for than conventional matt paint. It offers exceptional resistance to micro-scratching and doesn’t suffer through frequent car washing.
Thirdly, because it is applied by production robots at the advanced Poissy manufacturing plant in France, outstanding quality is guaranteed for the lifetime of the car.
PEUGEOT textured paint is a world-first on a volume production car and is backed by an international patent which is the result of almost four years of technical development. While the initial coats of anti-corrosion, primer and colour base remain the same as for conventional metallic paint, the innovation is in the composition and application of the lacquer. It features fine particles of silica and micro-balloons of polyamide; the former give the paint its matt appearance, toughness and granular properties, the latter creates its special texture.
Throughout the history of motoring, unique exterior finishes such as these have only been available on limited edition models, or as a very expensive premium hand-applied option. For the new PEUGEOT 208, it will cost exactly the same as pearlescent paint – at just £645.
The colour palette for the new PEUGEOT 208 comprises 13 shades that meet the growing customer demand for differentiation and exclusivity. They include:
2 textured colours (new Ice Grey and new Ice Silver)
2 solid colours (Bianca White and Hurricane Grey)
7 metallic colours:
(new Orange Power, Aluminium, Shark Grey, Nera Black, Virtual Blue, Twilight Blue, Rioja Red)
1 pearlescent colour (Satin White)
1 distinctive ‘Coupe Franche’ design
(textured Matt Black / Lacquered Red, exclusively available on the 208 ‘GTi by PEUGEOT Sport’)
Also making their debut on the new PEUGEOT 208 are two personalisation packs, an optional extra for both the exterior and interior of the car. They are factory-fitted options and available on Allure trim level and above. The Menthol White pack gives the 208 a touch of elegance, while the Lime Yellow pack is bright, modern and fun. Both feature various elements in the pack colour, including:
‘Equalizer’ grille with 3D-effect coloured markings
Gloss black grille surround
Gloss black front foglamp finishers with laser-engraved coloured line
Coloured front and rear PEUGEOT lettering
Nera Black door mirror shells and coloured side repeaters
The Menthol White and Lime Yellow packs can also be specified for the cabin interior, independent of the exterior pack chosen. Details include:
Sport seats in prestige leather effect trim and Oxford cloth, with coloured stitching
Armrests in the door panels with coloured stitching
Coloured front and rear door handles
Coloured blade below the instrument panel
Coloured dashboard moulding
Perforated full-grain leather steering wheel with coloured stitching
Gear lever gaiter with coloured stitching
Satin chrome air vent finishers
Passenger’s seat height adjustment
New PEUGEOT 208: enhanced desirability with strong attention to detail and high-quality
Revealed to the general public during the recent 85th Geneva Motor Show, the new PEUGEOT 208 goes on sale across Europe from June. Range enhancements are the result of a comprehensive programme of developments, which include new technology such as Active City Brake and a rear view camera, added for greater comfort and safety.
The 208 is available withfour new engines featuring class-leading PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel Euro 6-compliant technology, plus a new and impressive quick-changing EAT6 automatic gearbox. All are both economical and powerful.
The exterior design has become sleeker due to a larger grille design with new black and chrome two-tone lights that have a distinctive new LED light signature.
Inside is a new soft-touch dashboard material, white back-lighting for the instrument panel and blue LED light guides for versions equipped with a panoramic roof.
Following the lead of PEUGEOT award-winning 308 and 508, the new 208 range can now be specified in the new GT Line finish, a design influenced by the sporty looks of the performance GTi model.
