    I don't understand or speak German, so I have no idea what is happening.
    regards,

    He is basically commenting on how small & light the car got and that it needs 7 centimeters less in parking space than the 207. He also says that the shorter length did not come at expense of the Radstand (wheelbase).
    That's what I could understand

    Also La Tribune a french magazine could test the 208 with the brand new gazoline 3-cylinders engine(1.2l 84bhp)and their opinion is very positive about that engine

    The steering wheel is described as being as small as that of a Ferrari or Lotus

    I would think its because the instrument cluster is so far away on the top of the dashboard.
