Those keen on the look of the new Peugeot 308 GT but with only the budget for something cheaper can now get the best of both worlds thanks to the introduction of the Peugeot 308 GT Line.

The GT Line makes many of the sporty styling elements previously unique to the 308 warm-hatch and -wagon available to five different petrol and diesel engine variants.

The Peugeot 308 GT Line features 18-inch ‘Diamant’ alloy wheels, a black rear diffuser with twin exhausts, and tinted side rear windows on the outside, while the cabin gains half alcantara sports seats with red stitching, front-seat lumbar adjustment with massage function, leather GT steering wheel with red stitching, GT carpet mats, and aluminium pedals and scuff plates.

The GT Line styling package does not include the 308 GT’s dynamic enhancements, however, with the warm-hatch uniquely benefitting from higher-output turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, lowered suspension, larger brakes, and the Driver Sport Pack, which includes an amplified engine note, red instrument display with additional information, and bespoke settings for the throttle, transmission and steering.

The GT Line replaces the Feline trim in the UK and other European markets. CarAdvice has contacted Peugeot Australia about its interest in the 308 GT Line for our market. The 308 GT hatch is confirmed to reach our market in the first quarter of 2015, though not the wagon at this stage.

Peugeot’s GT Line is almost identical to French rival Renault’s GT-Line design enhancement package, which is available in Australia on its Clio and Megane models.
