The Peugeot 308 is the reigning European car of the Year 2014 and its line-up has been refreshed with two new models called the GT Line and Sportium.
The GT Line will now be the range topper, replacing the Feline model, and the Sportium will only come with the firm’s three cylinder petrol engine.
The GT comes with a wide range of engines, including HDi and BlueHdi and is available as a hatchback or in a SW bodystyle.
New Peugeot 308 models revealed
This model also comes with extra kit including 18 inch alloy wheels, tinted rear side windows and twin exhausts fitted with black laquered rear diffusors.
Inside, the Peugeot 308’s cabin is as comfortable and well-designed as before but comes with half-Alcantara sports seats which have lumbar adjustment and massage function.
There’s also a new steering wheel, complete with red stitching, and carpet mats along with aluminium style pedals and door sill protectors.
Prices for the Peugeot 308 GT start at £21,345 OTR.
Peugeot 308 Sportium has 1.2litre engine
The Sportium is special edition with an impressively efficient 1.2litre Pure Tech three cylinder petrol engine – the aim is to promote its benefits to a wider audience for what is a great little engine.
With CO2 emissions of 105g/km, the engine has power outputs of either 110HP or 130HP. Both are strong and impressive performers.
Peugeot says the smooth runner is equally as good on motorways or city streets, and comes with stop/start engine technology to help improve economy.
Based on the firm’s Access trim, which is already a high spec, the new Peugeot 308 Sportium models come with extras such as cruise control, air con and DAB radio.
