Our Fleet Test Drive: Peugeot 208 - 2nd Report
29 April 2013

Our intense opening 440 miles, 10-day period with the Peugeot 208 involved a fair chunk of motorway driving, which generated what sounded like excessive road noise from the five-door supermini's hindquarters.
Knowing that the car required a new rear bumper after a pre-delivery workshop mishap, Peugeot took it back - but could not find any tangible cause following the fender bending and mending. By way of comparison, we briefly ran a three-door substitute, which seemed better insulated from road and wind noise.
