Car reviews - Peugeot - 308 - CC coupe-convertible range
The Peugeot 308 CC is better than its predecessor, from the top down ...
13 Jul 2009
PEUGEOT’S impressive 308 hatchback was always going to provide the basis for a much better coupe-convertible than the 307 that preceded it, so it’s no surprise the sportier and more rigid new 308 CC is a more convincing driver’s car than the 307 CC. Adding to its increased allure are two new engines, led by a smooth, perky new turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine shared with BMW, mated to both six-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions. For the first time in a Peugeot convertible in Australia, there’s also a diesel engine on offer in the 308 CC – in this case a torquey 2.0-litre turbocharged unit matched exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission. Two equipment levels are available for the 308 CC, which is priced from under $50,000 and features affordable top-end technologies such as a neck heating system, twin front side airbags and a head-up display.
