Peugeot is boosting its 308 range by adding the new sporty GT and GT Line options.
The 308 GT Line capitalises on the sporting character of the GT and is available on a wide range of PureTech, HDi and BlueHDi powertrains, while the 308 Sportium is a new special edition model for retail customers. The new model features Peugeot's three-cylinder petrol engine and both are set to bring new buyers to the reigning European Car of the Year 2014.
The GT Line offers customers the same sporting character of the 308 GT and was introduced in both hatchback and SW body style. In the range it sits between Allure and GT and is matched to one of five powertrain options.
The model offers additional exterior equipment including 18-inch 'Diamant' alloys, tinted rear windows and twin exhausts with black lacquered rear diffusor.
The 308 GT Line has half-Alcantara sports seats with red stitching, plus a driver and front passenger lumbar adjustment with a massage function. It has a leather steering wheel with red stitching and 'GT style' carpet mats are included as well as aluminium style pedals and doorsill protectors.
Positioned between the 308 Access and Active trim levels, the Peugeot 308 Sportium is designed to promote the benefits of the brand's 1.2-litre PureTech three-cylinder engine. The car was introduced as a retail special edition.
Sportium models come with a high level of specification including DAB digital radio, air-conditioning and cruise control with a speed limiter. Typical kit includes 16-inch 'Diamond' alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and leather interior.
The Peugeot Brand can trace its roots back to 1810, and it was in 1889 that it began producing automobiles, thus in 2014 it celebrates 125 years of vehicle production with over 60 million sold. Conveyed through its brand signature 'Motion & Emotion', PEUGEOT is present in 160 countries with some 10,000 Franchised Dealers and recognised for its Excellence, Allure and Emotion.
