Best used Peugeot 108 finance deals and offers 2019

Fancy a small car with rock-bottom cash or finance bills and very affordable running costs? Look no further than the Peugeot 108

The Peugeot 108, launched in 2014, is the more mature-looking of a group of three closely-related city cars, the others being the funky, youth-oriented Toyota Aygo and the striking and colourful Citroen C1.

Like them, it’s available in an array of colours and styling schemes and like the C1, with a folding fabric roof. But of the trio, it seems a little more sober while its starting price for new models is much higher. Go for a used version, however, and you should be able to find super-affordable 108s, just like the C1 and Aygo alternatives.

The reality, of course, is that underneath it’s the same as its sister cars and shares its thrummy and energetic 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine with the C1. However, unlike the C1 but like the Aygo, it offers the option of an automatic gearbox which, while blunting what little performance there is to begin with, does at least make the car even easier to drive in town. What’s more, it costs the same as the manual; a huge thing in its favour if your licence restricts you to an automatic gearbox.

The 108 is offered with a choice of three or five doors but since the five-door costs only £400 more and is more practical, it’s the one we’d recommend. The difference should be even smaller for used versions. The 108 Top with its foldback fabric roof (which costs £1,000 more than regular hard-top versions) is only available with five doors, which simplifies your choices.

There’s no central rear seatbelt meaning the 108 is strictly a four-seater. Even then, and with five doors, it’s a squeeze for adult passengers who may not be able to endure more than short journeys. At least small children are catered for, thanks to the provision of Isofix child-seat mounting points in the back.

There are three trims to choose from but as befits this more grown-up city car, even entry-level Active is well equipped. That's because it's not really the entry-level model - previously a more basic Access model was available and is still available used. And Active versions are only as well equipped as the Citroen C1 in mid-level Feel trim, while the cheapest C1 is almost £2,000 less new.

This means that if you're considering the 108, it's worth looking at the C1, too, to check whether you could get a car with all the kit you want for a far lower price. Options on the 108 include sat-nav for an affordable £400 (on new models, albeit only on Allure and Collection versions), meaning there should be many used models with this fitted, a safety pack (£480 but again only on Allure and Collection), a rev counter (£80 on Active trim) and multiple exterior and interior colour combinations starting at £250.

BuyaCar has a wide range of used 108s from very affordable 2014 models to nearly new ones at prices that represent huge savings on the list prices.

2019 Peugeot 108 PCP offers

 

Peugeot 108 Active deals

Active may be the entry-level trim but this being the 108, it’s well equipped. Outside, colour-coded door handles and mirrors boost its appeal while inside, it offers air-conditioning, electric front windows and hinged rear windows, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a seven-inch touchscreen media system with digital radio and phone connectivity.

This spread of kit is impressive for an entry-level model - reflecting the fact a budget Access model was previously available - so if you want a 108 for the lowest cost and can do without some of the Active model's equipment, it's worth considering a used Access model or a C1 equivalent. The rear seat is a bench only but at least it splits and folds 50/50, increasing this little car’s practicality.

Entry-level models are often dismissed for their poor specification but in the 108’s case, Active hits the spot - since it's not really an entry-level model - in terms of having all the essentials you could wish for.

Peugeot 108 Allure deals

Mid-spec Allure trim costs a not insignificant £1,400 more than Active for new models, but at least brings smart-looking alloy wheels and tinted rear windows, as well as useful features such as automatic headlights that you don't have to switch on, foglights, and powered and heated door mirrors.

Allure also has keyless ignition so you aren't forever fumbling with the ignition key. Last but not least, it has a colour reversing camera that may seem excessive in view of the car’s size but which, in a tight parking spot, is a boon.

If you fancy the kit of the Allure but can't stomach the £1,400 premium, consider a used model, to get this higher-specification car for a far lower cost - with even barely driven 2019 models available from less than £8,000 or £135 per month.

Peugeot 108 Collection deals

Peugeot describes Allure as the sporty trim and Collection as majoring on style. To that end, this trim takes Allure’s features and simply adds special mats and the opportunity to match interior and exterior colours. That's why it costs only £250 more than Allure when new.

This also means there are used bargains to be found, with prices proving comparable to the Allure versions. So, to find the best car for your needs, all you need to do is choose the colour you want and there should be a number of good value options available.
