Two variants are available, both featuring Peugeot’s PureTech engine technology, which in this case is a 3-cylinder powerplant with high pressure direct-injection, four valves per cylinder and high pressure turbocharging. The base offering is the 308 Active fitted with a 1.2-litre PureTech e-THP 110 engine offering 81 kW and 205 Nm and mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
The 308 GT Line ups the power up with a 1.2-litre PureTech e-THP 130 engine which offers 96 kW with peak torque at 240 Nm. This model makes use of a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The Peugeot 308 models are further differentiated by exterior styling details, interior trim and equipment. The 308 GT Line for instance gains full LED headlights, a different grille, larger alloys wheels, twin tailpipes and more brightwork. A 9.7-inch touchscreen is standard on both models.
