Peugeot has announced a special edition version of its 308 for 2015, bearing the name of another prominent French brand, Total Lubricants.
Dubbed the 308 Total Package and priced at $26,990 drive-away, the limited-edition model packs $5000 of extra equipment on top of the entry-level 308 Access' spec list, while costing just $2300 more.
What do you get? Nine-spoke 17-inch alloys painted satin black replace the standard-issue 15-inch steel wheels, a chin spoiler sits beneath the front bumper, the grille has been blacked out, and the wing mirror casings can be had in red, blue or black.
The Total Package can only be applied to white vehicles, while subtle Total decals are applied to the tailgate and front quarter panels.
Otherwise, specification remains identical to the 308 Access, which is powered by a 96kW/230Nm 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine. The Total Package can only be optioned for cars equipped with the six-speed automatic.
Since launching locally last year the Peugeot 308 has established itself as the cornerstone of Peugeot's local lineup, handily outselling every other model it offers by a hefty margin.
It's still a relative small fry in the ultra-competitive small car segment, but with a new value-added version in the 308 Total Package now offering an extra incentive to walk into a Peugeot showroom the French automaker's fortunes may yet grow.
