Those eyeing the Peugeot 308 will be pleased to know that the facelifted form of the five-door hatch is set to be introduced here soon. As before, the car – which made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last year – will be available in both Turbo and normally-aspirated VTi forms.
The facelift features a reworked front end, replete with a floating-style front grille and striking boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights. The car also gets minor revisions to the rear. There are no details on specifications and features for both variants, and all that’s known thus far is the pricing of the Turbo, which is listed at RM121,888 on-the-road, a RM3k increase from the pre-facelift.
No idea if the 1.6 litre Prince mill in the Turbo features the increased output as seen on the 408 Turbo, which brings the THP 156 unit’s 156 hp up to 163 hp, but we’ll find out soon enough. Word has it that the official announcement will be in two weeks time, once the VTi pricing is finalised.
