The French have always been good at producing a vehicle which offers bold styling characteristics and charm, while still remaining very clever at the same time. It should, therefore come as no surprise that the 308 GT Line offers some very unique styling of its own, and couples this with some unique elements.
– Gorgeous French styling
– Twin style exhausts tastefully set in a piano black surround
– Large sporty dual tone rims
– Blackened mirror housings
– Full LED head/tail lights as well as exterior door mirror illumination lighting
– A beautifully detailed grill and a spattering of GT Line badges throughout the body
– An interior comprised of a multitude of suede, leather and other quality grade materials
– Incredibly comfortable seats with massage functionality
Power is dealt with in a very similar manner to that of the Citroen C4 Cactus, the vehicle which I drove in a recent review:
The 308 GT Line also offers up a 1.2 L Puretech e-THP turbo engine which delivers 96KW of power and 240Nm torque. It may not be the biggest engine, but the way it delivers the power is simply phenomenal. Power comes about in a very immediate fashion and everything just feels very effortless, making the 308 GT Line a pleasure to drive and a great long distance grand tourer.
Media and entertainment is dealt with thanks to Peugeot/Citroen’s Smeg+ multimedia interface, which is intuitive, easy to navigate and all operated with it’s 9.7″ touchscreen display.
Having now had the opportunity to experience the Peugeot 308 GT Line in both rural country road driving conditions and now urban driving, the conclusions which I am able to draw are clear. The 308 GT Line couples a sensible family hatchback with a slick style GT cruiser. It’s wealth of standard equipment and phenomenal Puretech engine make it an absolute pleasure drive.
