It will be offered with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, and for the first time, a diesel engine. Peugeot also launched the range topping 308 XTS that goes on sale here with a 128kW GTi turbo-petrol engine. Responsive and highly flexible, the engine develops peak torque at only 1600rpm and is fitted with a new 6-speed manual gearbox. In keeping with the dynamic nature of the engine, the exterior of the XTS model introduces a number of new features. The lower front bumper panel has a unique appearance which is combined with a rear spoiler and a reduced overall ride height even though the car sits on 18" alloy wheels. Xenon directional headlamps, front fog lamps and a chrome exhaust tip complete the picture.
