peugeot 308 griffe 1

Rather quietly, the Peugeot 308 Griffe Turbo made its way into Malaysian showrooms earlier this month, and it happens to be a limited edition run of 308 units. The Griffe designation incorporates more equipment and offers the car a bit more flash and a sportier outlook. There’s no shout about the car just yet, but an ad for the car has popped up on oto.my, and it’s mentioned on the Peugeot Malaysia website.

Externally, the Peugeot 308 Griffe features a GTI rear spoiler, carbon fibre effect bodykit, 17-inch five twin-spoke Dark Stromboli design alloys finished in a gun-metal shade and directional smoked bi-xenon headlamps.

Inside, there are semi-bucket leather/fabric combination seats, complete with red stitching – the last also dresses up the handbrake handle, steering wheel and gear lever. White instrument dials and special Griffe carpet mats (yes, with red stitching) are also on.

No changes to the running gear, with the 156 hp 1.6 litre THP 156 coninuing as is, mated to a six-speed automatic. As for pricing, the 308 Griffe is listed at RM132,888, on-the-road with insurance.
