Peugeot 308 gets updated styling and new engine
Peugeot’s 308 is being updated with fresh styling and a new 1.5-litre diesel engine.
The updated range – which is available in hatch, GTi and SW models – gains an updated grille, new bumper and LED daytime running lights across all models while the interior gets a new 3D satnav system with voice control.
Engine line-up changes see the 308 become the first PSA Group model to get the BlueHDi 130 S&S four-cylinder diesel engine while a new eight-speed automatic transmission debuts on the GT-exclusive BlueHDi 180 Stop&Start engine.
In addition, the three-cylinder petrol engine gets efficiency upgrades, although CO2 and fuel efficiency figures are not yet available, and a new six-speed manual gearbox.
Other changes include additional driver assistance tech in the form of Active Safety Brake and Active Lane Departure Warning and adaptive cruise control.
