An updated Peugeot 308 has been revealed، boasting styling tweaks، new technology and a new powertrain option، which will go on sale this September، UK-based Auto Express reported.
The fresh design is highlighted by the new vertical grille and bonnet arrangement، complete with the Peugeot badge mounted right in the centre. The refreshed face is completed with new headlights featuring integrated daytime running lights، creating a new front lighting signature.
Two more design changes come the way of the 2017 308 – the new، more aggressive front bumper with its three lower grilles، plus taillights with a new lighting signature.
In the cabin، a new 3D sat nav system with voice-activated controls appears، while Peugeot has also updated the driver assists present on the 308. Automatic emergency braking is now available، alongside a lane departure warning system and adaptive cruise control.
Under the bonnet، the 308’s three-cylinder petrol engine has been tweaked، and the firm claims it’ll be more efficient and emit less CO2، though revised figures have not yet been revealed. This 1.2-litre engine is now paired with a six-speed manual gearbox as well.
A new engine appears in the form of the BlueHDi 130 S&S diesel – a four-cylinder turbodiesel engine which gets the same at-source and at-exhaust emissions tweaks as the 1.2-litre three cylinder petrol. Elsewhere، the BlueHDi 180 S&S diesel engine exclusive to the 308 GT is now available with an EAT8 automatic transmission.
The new 308، 308 SW and 308 GTI will be available for delivery from September onwards.
