Which brings us to prices.

Which brings us to prices. The Peugeot 308 CC GT100s aside, there are three trims available for the Peugeot 308 CC: Sport, SE and GT; and three engine sizes in different configurations. The Sport with the 1.6 VTi 120, starts the pricing at £19,495 and the 1.6 HDi FAP 110 adds £1,000, which is comparable with the likes of the Volkswagen Eos and Ford Focus CC. For this you get alloy wheels, front fogs, air conditioning, a leather covered steering wheel, black and grey sport interior trim, a radio/CD system with six speakers, the same amount of airbags and ESP.

Peugeot 308 CC SE versions are likely to be the most popular with prices ranging from £20,395 to £23,095. Apart from the increased specification, the SE is bound to be the favourite because at this level, the complete engine range becomes available; that is to say, those above plus the 1.6 THP 150 (6-speed manual), the same engine (THP 140) with 4-speed automatic, the 2.0-litre HDI FAP 140, 6-speed manual and with the 6-speed automatic transmission it becomes the 2.0 HDi FAP 136. By the way, THP stands for Turbo High Pressure.

The extra goodies include larger, 17-inch alloys, rear parking aid, cruise control, climate control with air-conditioning, automatic headlights and wipers, electrochromic rear-view mirror and AUX and MP3 playback to the audio system.

The Peugeot 308 CC GT100 bears a price tag of £23, 595 and comes with the more powerful petrol engine, while the GT ranges from £23,495 to 24,295 with the same engine or the 2.0, manual diesel, respectively. I drove both and found the petrol to be a more stimulating drive, but more of that later.
