Peugeot 308 Millesim Special Edition Launched

As it did with the 207 a couple of days ago, the British division of Peugeot announced today it will expand its 308 range by adding a special edition to the lineup that celebrates Peugeot’s 200th anniversary: the Millesim. There will be four models available powered by VTi petrol and HDi diesel engines.

According to the manufacturer, all models are based on the five-door S hatchback version but add a fully body coloured exterior, 16” alloy wheels, sports front grille, sports rear bumper, Peugeot Connect USB & Bluetooth and unique Millesim 200 badging.

Other features offered as standard include ABS, EBFD, EBA, ESP, driver airbag, passenger airbag, side airbags, curtain airbags, remote control central locking with deadlocks, electric front and rear windows, radio / single CD player, air-conditioning and front fog lights, among others.

Two petrol engine options will be available: a new Euro 5 1.4 litre 98 bhp, or a 1.6 litre 120 bhp version. For HDi diesel versions, the 308 Millesim is powered by Peugeot’s 1.6 litre 90 and 110 bhp engine. An additive based diesel particulate filter system (FAP) is fitted as standard on the HDi 110 bhp engine.

Inside, users will find an inclined design of the fascia panel and infotainment features such as the Peugeot Connect USB & Bluetooth that consists of a USB or jack plug socket to connect a portable music player and full Bluetooth phone connectivity.

The 308 Millesim range will be priced from £16,245 on-the-road for the 1.4 VTi 98 version. As we previously reported, all models bought in June will also come with a free unlocked Nokia 5230 smart phone with in-built satellite navigation.
