Local pricing and pre-orders announced for Peugeot 308

Peugeot Australia has opened pre-orders for the highly anticipated 308 range, with local pricing also revealed at the same time. It will be available in four variants; the GT Hatch, GT Premium Hatch, GT Premium Wagon and GT Sport Hatch PHEV.

Starting from $43,990 plus on-roads, the first three variants will be here before year’s end, with the plug-in hybrid arriving early next year. With a striking new design and improved interior space, the 308 is also the first car to bear the brand’s new coat of arms.

The Peugeot 308 also introduces the latest i-Cockpit technology, with an advanced infotainment system that is intuitive, connected and resolutely modern. Efficiency and high performance down to the smallest aerodynamic detail also features.

“We are confident that the new Peugeot 308 has a distinct offering for the local market that will appeal across multiple premium segments due to the different body styles on offer as well as the compelling choice of powertrains, both internal combustion and electrified,” Peugeot Australia managing director Kate Gillis said.

“Looking forward to 2023, we are particularly excited that the Peugeot 308 GT Sport Hatch Plug-In Hybrid will allow us to continue our electrification journey and enter into the electrified small car segment for the first time in Australia.”

The 308 GT Hatch is powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It delivers 96kW of power and 230Nm of torque. Inside there’s a 10-inch infotainment setup, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

An LED lighting package, 18-inch alloy wheels, and safety ffeatures such as blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and push button start are all included.

It’s available in Olivine Green, Artense Grey, Nera Black, Pearl White, Elixir Red and Vertigo Blue. The 308 GT Premium Hatch adds active lane positioning assist, a 360-dgree full colour reversing and front camera, and a 10-speaker premium audio system.

Additionally, for its $48,990 plus on-roads price, you also get an electric driver’s seat, heated front seats with massage function, panoramic opening glass sunroof, Nappa leather seating and matte black 18-inch alloys.

The GT Premium Wagon, priced at $50,490 plus on-roads, is powered by the same powertrain, with its full feature list to be announced later in the year. It will be available in Avatar Blue, Platinum Grey, Artense Grey, Nera Black, Pearl White and Elixir Red.

The range topping Peugeot 308 GT Sport Plug-In Hybrid Hatch (for which pricing is yet to be announced) is powered by a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine with 132kW of power and an 81kW electric motor for a combined 165kW and 360Nm.

That combination is paired to an electric eight-speed automatic transmission, with the remaining details for this vehicle to be announced closer to launch. You can register your interest for any of the new 308 range online.
