Updated Peugeot 308 Coming To Richard Hardie Centres

Updated Peugeot 308 Coming To Richard Hardie Centres

Posted on:

The Peugeot 308 is a popular family hatchback, perfect for those looking for a practical yet stylish vehicle for everyday adventures! It won the European Car Of the Year back in 2014 and we can see why! Take a look at the changes for the updated model.

Exterior Changes

The front end of the new model differs slightly, with new shaped headlights and LED daytime running lights. The bumper has also been reshaped too, bringing the updated model in line with the SUV range. The wheel design has also been updated, giving the car an overall more stylish feel. The suspension, steering and brakes remain pretty much the same as the current model. These all give the car a smooth and comfortable ride no matter where you’re going.

Safety Features

The new model has an updated and more advanced autonomous braking system, as well as Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Cruise Control. For those undertaking regular motorway journeys you can also get Lane Departure Assist.

Interior & Technology

Inside the new Peugeot 308, you’ll find the Peugeot i-Cockpit® on a 9.7-inch touchscreen, with updated graphics. The system has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included for those who want to stay connected while on the go. If you opt for the new GT Line model you’ll get brilliant extras including a panoramic roof, available from Allure trim, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The headlights are LED and there’s a handy reversing camera too.

New Engine Range

The model is currently available with a 1.6 diesel engine. The new, updated Peugeot 308 will be available with a 1.5-litre BlueHDI diesel engine. This new engine is superbly efficient and has low running costs, perfect for those on a budget!

Book A Test Drive

The updated model will be in showrooms from September, but we have a one day special Preview Event! The new Peugeot 308 will be coming to our Durham Centre on 19th August and Ashington Centre on 25th August. Get in touch today to book your appointment to be one of the first to see and test drive the brand new Peugeot 308.
