The Peugeot 108 is a city car, launched by the French manufacturer Peugeot in March 2014, at the Geneva Motor Show. It went on sale later in July 2014, for the United Kingdom.[1]

It is related to the Citroën C1 and Toyota Aygo, again sharing the same chassis, engines, transmissions and electrics. Cars are built in the same factory, situated in the Czech Republic.[2]

The 108 is powered by a choice of two three cylinder petrol engines: a 1.0 litre VTi with 68 bhp, emitting up to 97g/km of CO2, with an e-VTi producing 88g/km, and a larger 1.2 litre VTi has 82 bhp, and emits 99g/km of CO2.

The Peugeot 108 is available for sale in Croatia since January 2018, via its new distributor, (P Car Import, owned by Emil Frey), because before that, the previous distributor (Peugeot Croatia) could not distribute because of the difficult and tough economic situations in Balkans which forced to reduce their model ranges.[3]
