Peugeot celebrates its 200th anniversary with the launch of a range of special edition Peugeot 308 models called Millesim 200.
There will be four models available powered by Peugeot's highly efficient VTi petrol and HDi diesel engines. All Peugeot 308 Millesim 200 models are based on the five-door S hatchback version but with extra standard specification of: fully body coloured exterior, 16" alloy wheels, Sports front grille, Sports rear bumper, Peugeot Connect USB & Bluetooth and unique Millesim 200 badging.Peugeot 308 Millesim 200 Model Range

All models also benefit from the already comprehensive standard specification of the Peugeot 308 which includes: ABS, electronic brake force distribution (EBFD), emergency brake assist (EBA), driver airbag, passenger airbag, side airbags, curtain airbags, electronic stability programme (ESP), remote control central locking with deadlocks, electric front and rear windows, radio / single CD player, air-conditioning, front fog lights….
With the Peugeot 308 Millesim, owners will also be able to play all their latest music by simply connecting a portable MP3 player or iPod directly to the car. The Peugeot Connect USB & Bluetooth consists of a USB or jack plug socket to connect a portable music player and full Bluetooth phone connectivity. Therefore, the driver can make and receive phone calls completely hands-free on any Bluetooth compatible phone. Controls on the steering column also allow the driver to operate both a Bluetooth phone and portable music player without taking hands off the steering wheel.
For the petrol versions, the Peugeot 308 Millesim is equipped with Peugeot's class leading VTi petrol engines. Two engine options are available, a new Euro 5 1.4 litre 98 bhp, or a 1.6 litre 120 bhp version. Both engines benefit from Peugeot's particularly innovative VTi technology which improves the engine's overall efficiency, significantly reducing fuel consumption (particularly in phases of partial load) and, therefore, CO2 emissions.
For HDi diesel versions, the Peugeot 308 Millesim is powered by Peugeot's 1.6 litre 90 and 110 bhp engines, both acknowledged for their driveability, performance and low running costs (62.7 mpg in the combined cycle and zero vehicle excise duty). An additive based diesel particulate filter system (FAP) is fitted as standard on the HDi 110 bhp engine.
Inside, the Peugeot 308 Millesim interior is perfectly in keeping with the exterior styling. The inclined design of the fascia panel helps to accentuate the feeling of space and the use of high quality materials (both to look at and to touch) creates an impression of quality seldom encountered in this level of vehicle.
The Peugeot 308 Millesim benefits from Peugeot's extensive experience and the latest technological advances to ensure safety of the highest order at all levels. A five star EuroNCAP rating is combined with the standard fitment of: ESP, six airbags, five three-point inertia reel seat belts with a "fasten seat belt" warning system, front and rear head restraints designed to limit whiplash, three Isofix mountings to accommodate a child seat - one at the front and two in the rear outer seats and an electrically operated child safety system which simply and safely locks the rear doors and disables the electric rear windows.
The Peugeot 308 Millesim is launched in the UK in June priced from £16,245.00 on-the-road for the 1.4 VTi 98 version. All models ordered in June 2010 also come with a free Nokia 5230 smartphone with inbuilt satellite navigation with free future updates and an in-car mounting kit.
