308-gt

Peugeot has added two new trim levels to the new Peugeot 308 range. First, there’s the new GT Line, which you can choose if you want the sporty looks of the proper Peugeot 308 GT but don’t really need the powerful engine. The GT Line trim replaces the Feline trim.

The GT Line trim includes 18 inch ‘Diamant’ alloy wheels, twin exhausts with a black lacquered rear diffuser, and tinted rear side windows. On the inside, there’s half-Alcantara sports seats with red stitching, a ‘GT style’ leather steering wheel with red stitching, ‘GT style’ carpet mats and aluminium pedal and door sill protectors.

The other trim line is the ‘Sportium’ trim, which is available exclusively with the 1.2 litre PureTech three-cylinder engine in a hatchback body.

It’s based on the Access trim and adds on 16-inch ‘Diamond’ alloy wheels, driver’s lumbar support, rear parking sensors, leather steering wheel, leather gearstick gaiter, plus automatic headlamps and wipers.

The Peugeot 308 was previewed to dealers in Malaysia recently by Malaysian Peugeot distributor Nasim Sdn Bhd. Although the preview car was a 2.0 BlueHDi turbodiesel unit, we can’t confirm that Nasim will introduce a diesel variant in Malaysia. An introduction sometime in Q1 2015 was stipulated.
