The facelifted Peugeot 308 hatchback could take inspiration from the recently revealed 308 Saloon, a car designed exclusively for the Chinese market. These images from carscoops give us a hint at how this new version could look.
If you can’t wait for the new model, use our Peugeot 308 configurator to get a great deal on the current car. If you’re not sure what to buy, read our list of the 10 best small cars currently on sale, or take a look at our deals page and helpful car chooser tool.
New Peugeot 308 styling
Peugeot Australia’s general manager, Kai Bruesewitz, has suggested the 308 Saloon’s restyled front end, with its larger air intakes and chrome grille inserts, could make its way onto the new car. The new 3008 SUV comes with LED headlights as standard – it’s possible that these items will also be offered on the facelifted 308.
New Peugeot 308 interior
It’s likely the new car’s interior will differ only slightly from the current model. The signature small steering wheel mounted below the elevated instrument binnacle will almost certainly remain, as will the conventional analogue gauges and dials.
New Peugeot 308 engines and driving
We don’t expect the facelifted 308 to come with a radical new selection of engines – the current model’s 1.2 and 1.6-litre petrol units and 1.6-litre diesel engine will probably be offered on the new car, too.
New Peugeot 308 price and release date
No official details have been announced regarding the 308’s release date or price, but we don’t expect it to cost significantly more than the current model – entry level cars should cost from £15,495, rising to £26,445 for high performance GTi models. The facelifted car will probably be shown to the public at the Paris Motor Show in October 2016 and go on sale before 2017.
