Peugeot refreshes 308
Nonetheless, the French firm has given the 308 hatchback and estate a mild refresh. It's pretty low-key stuff - we're in the realms of new alloy wheel designs and the arrival of a new 'vertigo blue' paint colour.
You can also specify a 'black pack' to replace the exterior chrome trim with gloss black items.
The adoption of the 'i-Cockpit' - a digital dashboard screen, essentially - from the latest 208 and 2008 models is noteworthy. There's a new infotainment screen, too, and you will find Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on board.
Safety and driver assistance kit includes adaptive cruise control with - on cars with an automatic gearbox - stop and go function, 180-degree rear view camera, park assist, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and blind spot monitoring.
Peugeot's excellent 1.2-litre 'PureTech' petrol engine is offered in 109bhp and 128bhp tunes. Diesel duties are covered by a 1.5-litre with either 99bhp or 128bhp.
A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, though the more powerful petrol and diesel engines can also be had with an eight-speed automatic.
The 308 GTi hot hatch model has a 259bhp 1.6-litre unit with 251lb.ft.
