Peugeot Unveils 208 XY
Earlier this year, Peugeot launched its 208 model. Now, further derivatives of the 208 are on their way. The 208 XY is just one of those new additions, with an enhanced focus on ‘luxury’ and ‘style’ – and aimed, presumably, at the female demographic.
The body is punctuated with chromed details, subtle touches of Purple on the Peugeot logos and the central wheel caps. The mirror casings, the fog lamp trims, the window trims and the rear skirt bead are dressed in bright chrome. On the quarter panel trim and the centre pillar, touches of gloss black complete the image.
Visible both by day and night is the light signature which incorporates new halogen headlamps. These lamps are designed with a rectangular internal structure using LED technology. Tightly enclosing the main beam headlamps, the floating trim of which is meant to suggest a cat’s pupil, they are meant to give the expression of the 208 XY with an iris.
The 17″ diamond-Anthra Mercure multi-spoke wheels house in their centre an alloy wheel cap with Purple edging. At the rear, the tailgate bears the ‘XY’ signature logo designed with dynamic graphics. Roof decals are available for personalisation.
The internal passenger compartment is a reflection of the exterior. The materials and appearance are ‘tied’ together with Purple overstitching. A chrome embellishment covers the door trims, the vents and the side decorations of the screen. The metallic bronze dashboard brings together the touch interface and the instrument panel with a graduated bronze-black decoration.
The seats are trimmed in cloth and Alcantara. At the driver’s feet, the aluminium pedal bracket and footrest are accompanied by mats edged with bronze cord overstitched in Purple.
