Peugeot introduces the 308 SR business range to the 308 hatchback and SW models, aimed squarely at the Local Business and Contract Hire / Leasing market.
Based on the 308 S model and available in both five-door hatchback and SW versions, the SR range sees the standard fitment of SmartNav – satellite navigation, Bluetooth hands free phone kit and 16” alloy wheels. It will be available with two HDi diesel engines, HDi 90 and HDi 110 and in September a Bioflex engine will be introduced in to the hatchback version. The Bioflex engine will be able to operate on either E85 ethanol or unleaded petrol.
The five-door hatchback model will also be available with an electronically controlled six-speed manual gearbox, which reduces the CO2 emissions to 120 g/km, the same as the HDi 90 version.
The competitive pricing of the entry models sees the customer paying just £650 more than an equivalent S model for £1,175 of additional standard equipment.
The 308 SR will be available in six exterior body colours: Hurricane Grey, Nera Black, Aluminium, Thorium Grey, Aegean Blue and Babylon Red.
