FAREWELL 207: Peugeot will replace its 207 with the new 208 (pictured here) later in 2011.

Our spies spotted Peugeot's 207 replacement undergoing cold-weather testing in northern Finland.

The 208 will replace the 207 hatchback later in 2011. The 207 was Peugeot’s best-selling car for many years and Europe’s top seller in 2007. The current model was launched in 2006 to replace the 206.

The 208 borrows styling cues from the French automaker’s 508 family sedan and will be available in three body styles; a hatchback (three-door and a five-door), a station-wagon and a hard-top convertible.


The new model will receive a new three-cylinder engine which could come in both naturally aspirated and supercharged variants.

New four-cylinder petrol engines from BMW could also power the 208, while a number of diesel options will also be added to the range.
