The Peugeot 308 CC GT is a bit of a culture shock compared to the other two trim levels.

The Peugeot 308 CC GT is a bit of a culture shock compared to the other two trim levels. For sure the layout is the same but the beautifully stitched, full leather interior, including the fascia makes the car feel chic and very expensive. And just like certain, more expensive cars, the Peugeot 308 CC GT comes with an 'Airwave' neck-heating system in the front seats, so you can still have the top down on cool days, without resorting to resembling an arctic explorer. Although it is a 'world-first' in a 4-seater coupe- cabrio, there is a drawback in that the neck-warming unit has its own panel in the seat, which bulges very slightly causing annoyance between the shoulders after a while.

In fact, with the high leading edge of the reinforced windscreen, extending well over the driver's head and the sculpted, high-backed seats, you tend to feel enclosed and cosy anyway. Although wind-in-the-hair driving is fun, a 'must-have' is the windstop, which comes with the GT or a leather upgrade, and adds £200 to all the others. It really does work but, as it fits across the rear seats, there is no room for the two rear passengers to enjoy the ample legroom, contoured seats with armrests and active roll-over bars.

The Peugeot 308 CC GT also comes with front and rear parking aids, tyre pressure sensors and JBL HiFi Pack set into a smart, piano-black surround. Navigation and Bluetooth systems are extra, and there is a good choice of interior leathers, upgrades and packs on the options list.
