If you’re one of the few who has their eyes on the three-door version of the Peugeot 208, then you may want to hurry up and make a deposit, because the automaker will pull the plug on it soon.
According to a report coming from Holland’s AutoWeek, the less practical model will be discontinued in the coming weeks. The decision was taken due to the poor sales of the car in most markets, and it’s not a surprise given that some car manufacturers have already applied a similar strategy.
For example, there hasn’t been a three-door version of the Renault Clio for quite a few years now. Volkswagen isn’t offering the Polo in this body style and neither are SEAT and Kia with the Ibiza and Rio, respectively.
Peugeot’s decision to kill the three-door hatch version of the 208 is final, apparently, and the supermini won’t come back in this suit at the 2018 Paris Auto Show, when the next generation is expected to enter the scene.
The PSA-owned brand won’t be left with fewer vehicles, as it will continue to invest in the future of mobility. So, expect to see more crossovers and SUVs with the lion logo in the coming years, alongside different electrified models.
