The Peugeot 308 Facelift Unveiled at The Geneva Motor Show
The Peugeot 308 facelift has been unveiled ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Peugeot 308 comes with a new look, features innovative e-HDi micro-hybrid technology and optimises fuel
consumption and CO2 emissions. The Peugeot 308 subtly incorporates the Marque's latest stylistic codes. The car's body follows the contours of the mechanical assembly underneath.
Available in April, the updated model features modified bumpers, a "floating" grille, and restyled headlights. A styling line, running from the front wheel arches, crosses the side of the body and the rear lights before dropping towards the lower rear panel and coming to an end in the lower section. The fluidity of the style is enhanced by the lateral glazed surface which follows a plunging waistline, and also by the panoramic rear window, which overlaps the rear quarter panel pillars. New diamanté effect 16 or 17 inch alloy wheels or Storm Grey 18 inch wheels for the GTi version underline this dynamic appeal.
Inside, designers focused on providing an "enhanced sense of perceived quality." To achieve this, they added improved seats, higher quality materials, and revised trim. The result is a fluid, pure and elegant fascia panel where pride of place is given to superior materials, according to finish: soft covering, leather trim, chrome, black lacquered materials. If that doesn't impress you, options include a panoramic sunroof (sedan and estate), automatic dual-zone climate control, GPS navigation, and a JBL audio system.
Occupants are put through to an assistance helpline when an emergency call is made (Peugeot Connect SOS) or a breakdown service in the case of a mechanical incident (Peugeot Connect Assistance). These services are available via a Peugeot Connect unit or with the top-of-the-range WIP Com 3D telematics offer.
