Peugeot’s new entrant in the medium car segment is now available in three door and automatic gearbox versions.
With the introduction of the 308 three door range in December, which will be available in Urban, S, Sport and GT trim levels, two automatic gearbox five door models will also be launched.
From December, the 1.6 litre VTi 120 bhp petrol engine will now also be available with a four speed auto adaptive automatic gearbox, with Tiptronic sequential manual control, in the 308 S 5 door model.
This new gearbox option is ideally suited for modern urban driving and will appeal to customers particularly keen on convenience and ease of use, while still allowing a more active driving style in sequential mode. The characteristics of this gearbox have been calibrated to optimise fuel consumption and offer the best possible compromise between fuel consumption and performance.
A second automatic gearbox version, the 308 SE THP 140 will also be available. This model uses a new version of the 1.6 litre THP turbo-charged petrol engine, previously producing 150 bhp but, now retuned to produce 140 bhp and 180 lb ft of torque from only 1400 rpm. The gearbox is the same as fitted to the VTi 120 model.Manufacturer’s Recommended Retail Prices
