The most obvious change occurs up front where the 308 wears a redesigned front bumper featuring enlarged air intakes, along with a subtly redesigned grille and new LED headlights, backed up by new LED taillights at the rear.
The 308 range will also benefit from new driver aids including autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, and a reversing camera with rear parking sensors and auto park assist functions.
As with the current 308 model structure the updated 308 will continue to be offered in six trim levels overseas including Access, Active, Allure, and GT Line, with the sporty GT and hot hatch GTi crowning the range.
Changes have been made to Peugeot’s touchscreen infotainment system to include smartphone mirroring functions such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 308 also offers in-built TomTom navigation with voice commands.
The 308’s engine range also comes in for a small adjustment, with a new flagship 133kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine and new eight-speed automatic transmission available in the 308 GT, taken from the upcoming 3008 SUV.
As before Peugeot will continue to offer a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines including a three-cylinder petrol powered variant.
More details will be made available closer to an Australian launch, most likely in early 2018.
