Peugeot has announced pricing details for the 308, with first customer deliveries in early January 2014.
Priced from £14,495, the new 308 will be available in four trim levels: Access, Active, Allure and Feline.
Standard equipment on all models includes air conditioning, remote central door locking, cruise control with speed limiter, DAB digital radio, LED daylight running lights and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Active model trim level adds standard dual zone air conditioning, electric handbrake, rear parking sensors, integrated 9.7” touch screen (easily the largest in the sector and more functional) and satellite navigation.
The Allure model is distinguished by innovative full LED headlamps, 17” alloy wheels, a reversing camera and front parking sensors.
The range topping Feline features also a panoramic Cielo glass roof, Alcantara trimmed sports seats and the Driver Assistance Pack with an impressive collection of driver assistance and safety devices: Dynamic Cruise Control, Emergency Collision Alert and Emergency Collision Braking System.
Power comes from a range of petrol and diesel engines. The highlight for environmentally aware drivers will be the 1.6-litre HDi 92, which has CO2 emissions of just 93g/km.
In Spring 2014 an innovative three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine – the 1.2-litre e-THP with a choice of 110 or 130bhp will join the range.
