Peugeot has a lot riding on the new 308 which they hope will res establish their pre eminence against the all conquering Volkswagen Golf.
Due to launch in October the 308 was in urgent need of a makeover having been one of the oldest and tiredest models in the segment.
The coming Specifications
The new range of 308′ will consist of two body styles being the hatch and Touring wagon.
Across these two body styles there are 11 variants across five trim-levels, with three different engine options and six different engine outputs.
In addition to the petrol engines teamed with automatic six-speed transmissions, there are two six-speed manual options available, and two diesel offerings.
For those looking for something more sporty Peugeot is releasing the performance-oriented GT.
The trim-level will be available as a manual with a more powerful 1.6-litre 155kW/285Nm turbo petrol engine, or as an automatic with a gutsier 2.0-litre BlueHDi 133kW/400Nm turbo-diesel engine.
