Spec for the new Peugeot 308 revealed

13th November 2020 | Steve Lumley

The Peugeot 308 is a great car leasing opportunity, and the new model will impress.

 

This is the impressive new Peugeot 308 with a revised trim and a choice of efficient diesel or petrol engines.

The order books have now opened and the new 308 features the firm's digital I-Cockpit technology as standard, which includes a 10-inch digital instrument display.

Also fitted as standard is a 9.5-inch high-definition colour display with smartphone connectivity.

For contract hire drivers that opt for the 308 Allure trim, then they get to enjoy 3D navigation along with TomTom traffic alerts and voice recognition.

The 308 is available in either SW estate or hatchback versions.

The Peugeot 308 model range for 2021, sees an improved exterior styling, new 16-inch alloy wheels and the new paint option.

Peugeot 308 car lease

The Peugeot 308 car lease includes a driver sport pack fitted as standard for the GT, GT Premium and the 308 GTi models.

This includes the ability to boost the throttle and power steering response times with a 'sport' button to enjoy a distinctive driving experience.

There’s also an automatic transmission available which has a sportier gear shift pattern.

The driving assistance systems for the new 308 depend on the trim but the list includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and driver attention alert.

Peugeot has also added a rearview camera with park assist, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and active blind spot monitoring.

Contract hire Peugeot 308

Engines for the contract hire Peugeot 308 include a range of efficient 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel engines, and 1.2-litre PureTech petrol units.

The Peugeot 308 GTi features a new turbocharged 1.6-litre PureTech unit that produces 260bhp with torque of 340Nm.

This will help propel the 308 GTi from 0 to 62 mph in six seconds.

Standard equipment for the entry-level Active Premium model includes a six-speed manual gearbox, 16-inch alloy wheels, the digital I-Cockpit and rear parking sensors.

The model also features a reversing camera, 3D satnav, adaptive cruise control and keyless entry and start.

308 GT offers value for money

The 308 GT offers value for money with larger alloy wheels, and the firm's emergency calling system which will contact the emergency services should it detect an accident has taken place.

The range-topper is the 308 GTi and this comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black rear diffuser and twin exhausts.

The ride height of the GTi has also been slightly lowered for better handling and there are red brake callipers to bring the car to a stop.

For those wanting a stylish and spacious contract hire family car, then the Peugeot 308 is building on a great reputation of reliability and handling - and the new model features lots more equipment and higher comfort levels than the model it replaces.
