Peugeot Australia has announced details of its refreshed 208 light car line-up, which will launch later this month with a dramatically lower entry price of $15,990 for the base 208 Access.

It's the lowest pricetag ever applied to a Peugeot model in the brand's 80 years in the Australian market, and finally puts Peugeot's light hatch offering in closer competition with its Japanese and Korean competitors.

The Access grade is new for the 208 range, and will complement the existing Active and Allure.

Available with a five-speed manual transmission and 60kW naturally-aspirated 1.2 litre three-cylinder engine as standard, the 208 Access can also be had with a six-speed auto and 81kW turbo 1.2 for $18,990.

The mid-grade Active continues, though it dumps the 1.6 litre four and adopts the 81kW turbo 1.2 and six-speed auto as its standard powertrain - as does the Allure.

Sitting above the Allure is the 208 GT-Line, an upper-spec model that boasts sportier styling but does without the performance hardware of the 208 GTi. It too makes use of the turbo 1.2 and six-speed auto combo, with no manual offered.

At the top of the range is the 208 GTi. Now boasting 153kW and 300Nm from its turbocharged 1.6 litre, the manual-only 208 GTi now has 6kW and 25Nm more than when it launched in 2013.
