New-look Peugeot 308 arrives in May

Peugeot will launch this face-lifted version of its 308 small family car in May.

The hatch, estate and CC convertible cars all get restyled looks and LED running lights.

Stop-start engine technology will also be available to reduce emissions. The 1.6-litre diesel will have its emissions cut to 98g/km as a result, making the car exempt from road tax and the London Congestion Charge.

Four petrol and four diesel engines will be available, along with five trims: Access, SR, Active, Allure and GT. However, range-topping GT trim will be available only on top-spec hatch and CC models with a 200bhp petrol engine.

All models will get air-conditioning, stability control, front and rear electric windows, remote central locking and six airbags.
