Inside, the materials and appearance are ‘tied’ together with Purple overstitching. A chrome embellishment covers the door trims, the vents and the side decorations of the screen, while the metallic bronze polyurethane PVC dashboard brings together the touch interface and the instrument panel.

The seats are trimmed in Mithy cloth, Prestige polyurethane PVC and Alcantara. At the driver’s feet, the aluminium pedal bracket and footrest are combined with a mat edged with bronze cord overstitched in Purple.

For the seats upholstery, customers are offered a choice between the Club Nappa leather, in black or bronze, and the black Club Nappa leather combined with a padded Alcantara make-up.

“From the outset we had a vision of colour, this Purple Night, which punctuates the bodywork and the interior of the 208 XY. Exclusive, it symbolises perfectly the refinement of this vehicle.” said Anna Costamagna, 208 XY and 208 GTi Design Stylist.
