Peugeot 308 GT Radio Review

Peugeot Australia has launched a new, special edition 308 GT model featuring bespoke visual and dynamic upgrades and powered by an all-new 165-kilowatt, turbocharged petrol engine paired with an all-new eight-speed, full-fluid Aisin automatic transmission.

Peugeot has a long history in Australia.  Amongst their models sits the small medium size hatch the 308. They upgraded the GT version in July last year and Rob Fraser has just spent a week in one.

Let me start out by saying I liked the Peugeot 308GT. It definitely has that French design flair that translates into some quite clever features and some that leave you scratching your head wondering why?

The 308GT has a refined sporty feel Typically Peugeot with more than enough driver engagement for most owners. The new 8 speed transmission has improved the day to day driver appeal and combined with the 1.6l turbo petrol engine that produces about 165kW it has enough zip to make driving fun.

With selectable sport transmission, retuned suspension, a lower ride height and a host of comfort and safety features the 308GT with a 5 year unlimited kilometre warranty and roadside assistance and priced at just under $40,000 plus the usual on road costs presents a real alternative for buyers that want something just a little bit different.
