Comments

Particulate emissions are well controlled by the diesel particulate filter and are not excessive in any of the tests, and not significantly worse in the heavy-load highway test or in cold ambient temperatures. Emissions of CO and of NMHC are low in all tests.

Comments

Values of Methane (CH4) are very low in all tests while those of CO2 are marginal. Laughing gas (N2O) is high in the warm test and this has a small negative impact on the score.

Our verdict

For the last decade, the 208 has been a mainstay of the Peugeot model line-up. Now in its second generation (2019 on) and tested here with the 75 kW 1.5 litre common-rail diesel, the car turns in a very respectable performance in Green NCAP's tests. A Clean Air Index of 5.1 demonstrates how effectively the car's emissions abatement system works and, in particular, its diesel particulate filter. Energy efficiency is good, with an average fuel consumption of 4.6 l/100 km. Emissions of greenhouse gases are moderate, CO2 increasing, as would be expected, in the cold ambient test and the high-load highway test, but with vanishingly small values of Methane (CH4). Only N2O, a gas which is not regulated by legislation, exceeds upper limits in one of the tests. Nevertheless, a three-star rating is a creditable achievement for Peugeot's supermini.
