PEUGEOT has announced pricing and full specification for the new 308, with deliveries due to commence shortly. Entry-level Active Premium models will start from £21,310, with the new 308 featuring an ever more assertive personality as well as a rejuvenated driving experience at the wheel of PEUGEOT’s Digital i-Cockpit®.
To celebrate the launch of the new 308, PEUGEOT has also created a unique animation showing the evolution of its family car over the last five decades, beginning with the PEUGEOT 304, which launched in 1969. The animation, which includes the Pininfarina-designed 305, the stylish 306 and spacious 307, shows how the shape of PEUGEOT’s family model has evolved through the years.

The Black Pack also includes 18-inch diamond cut alloys in Sapphire Black.
