New styling and safety features are the order of the day for the facelifted Peugeot 308 hatch and estate models, including the performance GTi hatch.
Modifications to the 308’s styling include a new bonnet, grille, front bumper and elliptical headlights. All models get LED daytime running lights as standard.
The Peugeot 308 boasts greater connectivity with a touchscreen that uses Mirror Screen to display the user’s smartphone. It’s also compatible with MirrorLink, AndroidAuto and Apple CarPlay. The 3D satnav with voice control uses TomTom to provide realtime traffic updates.
The current-shape 308 received a five-star Euro NCAP rating when tested back in 2013. Optional safety features now include Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Departure Warning, adaptive cruise control and Visiopark1 with 180° rear camera and Park Assist function.
Customers can choose from a range of petrol and diesel engines. The new 308 is the first PSA Group model to get 1.5 BlueHDi 130 stop-start diesel engine, while the BlueHDi 180 stop-start diesel engine is exclusive to the 308 and can be paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
The updated Peugeot 308 is available for UK delivery from September onwards.
