Created as an exercise in Urban Chic, the Peugeot 208 XY Concept offers a refined mix of cosmetic enhancements intended to brighten the world of the modern city dweller. Based on the Peugeot 208 and making its world debut at Geneva, this high-profile variant is finished in special 16-coat "Pulsion" paint that allows the car's basic Crimson hue to constantly color shift depending on the distance and the position from which it's viewed. To complement the trick paint, the XY Concept is fitted with unique dual-effect 18-inch alloy wheels, features a bespoke grille and has a full panoramic glass roof rimmed by color-chromed detail trim.
Inside, the Peugeot 208 XY Concept displays an equally upscale motif, matching pleated pearl-grey leather on the deluxe seats, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom multifunction steering wheel, Crimson accent elements on the dash and armrests plus Gunmetal trim bits and white ambient lighting. Motivation for the XY Concept is supplied by Peugeot's 1.6-liter e-HDI turbodiesel four-cylinder engine that makes 115 horsepower. It drives the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.
