Peugeot Sharpens 308 Range

Peugeot Australia announces its revised 308 range for 2020, featuring an all-new Petrol drivetrain of its existing 308 Touring Sportswagon and a sharp nationwide recommended driveaway pricing structure.

Joining the line-up is the new 308 GT-Line, the first time the nomenclature has been used for 308 in Australia.

Reflecting Australia’s taste for sporty looks, the 308 GT-Line leverages the visual muscle of the GT and GTi variants, while benefitting from Peugeot’s highly awarded PureTech turbo-petrol drivetrain.

The all-new 308 GT-Line features a competitive nationwide driveaway price of $36,490 and gains on top of the Allure:

  • Panoramic Glass Roof
  • Full LED Headlights
  • LED fog lights
  • LED sequential scrolling front indicators
  • 18″ Diamant Black diamond cut wheels
  • Sports Styling kit – Front bumper, Side skirt extension, Exhaust trim, and Grille
  • Exclusive interior trim and steering wheel (cloth with red highlights)
  • Exclusive GT-Line exterior badging
  • Red illumination for the instruments – in Sport mode
  • Instrument panel displaying read-outs from the car’s ECU, including levels of power and torque being delivered, turbo boost pressure, plus longitudinal and transverse acceleration

Joining the all-new 308 GT-Line is the 308 Allure Touring Sportswagon repowered in Petrol featuring Peugeot’s six-time International Engine of the Year Award winning PureTech drivetrain.

Available for the first time in Australia with this drivetrain, the 308 Allure wagon features a six-speed Aisin Automatic Transmission, Autonomous Emergency Brake, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assistance, Reverse Camera, Parking Sensors, Touch screen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, Satellite Navigation, Electronic park brake, Keyless Entry and start, Chrome accents and all-new 16-inch two-tone alloys as standard.

The new 308 Allure Touring Sportswagon turbo-petrol features a nationwide driveaway price of $33,490, representing a saving in excess of $6,000 when compared to the last petrol-powered touring in 2016.

Mirroring the new 308 Allure Touring Sportswagon is the Allure hatch, carrying a driveaway price of $31,490. This new 308 Allure hatch replaces the previous model, which featured a recommended driveaway price of $35,882, and represents a savings of in excess of $4,000.

Product Manager of Peugeot Australia Daniel Khan said the revised 308 range brings a greater value and a focus on what Australian consumers desire.

“The revised Peugeot 308 range adds value where it matters, while delivering new models that hit the sweet spot in terms of visual appeal, performance and practicality,” said Khan.

“We are particularly excited about the Petrol 308 Touring as it arrives into a segment where there is little choice and value is scarce. With a complete suite of safety and convenience inclusions, the revised Peugeot 308 range is sure to garner the attention of customers that value style just as much as value.” said Khan.

As a result of the sharper pricing, the Diesel 308 Touring Sportswagon and 308 Active hatch has been discontinued (previous 308 Active $30,732 driveaway) owing to the greater specification and near identical price point of the revised Allure model.

Peugeot Sport’s 308 GT will also cease being offered in Australia due to tightening emissions standards as well.

All models retain Peugeot’s 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty with roadside assist and Peugeot Price Promise servicing.  All driveaway prices are available at participating PEUGEOT dealers.
