Ligne S pack pimps Peugeot 308
Peugeot 308 accessory range headlined by $2300 Ligne S pack for base Access
12 Jun 2015
PEUGEOT has introduced a Ligne S cosmetic package to give its entry level 308 Access more visual appeal, with accessories valued at $5000, but costing just $2300.
The arrival of the new pack coincides with the launch of a wider range of accessories on offer for the French car-maker's small hatchback and wagon, and is available only on automatic versions of the 308 Access.
In standard trim the 1.2-litre Access auto costs $24,690 driveaway and adding the new aesthetic tweaks pushes the price up to $26,990 driveaway.
On the outside, the Ligne S kit swaps the standard 15-inch steel wheels with hubcaps for alloy five-spoke versions measuring 17 inches, with machined faces, gloss-black lowlights and contrasting red flashes.
The exterior enhancements continue with a gloss black front spoiler with matching side skirts and rear diffuser, while black mirror caps mimic the wheels with more subtle red pin-striping.
Chequered flag decals on the doors and Ligne S badging contrasts the Bianca White paint job and completes the look.
On the inside, the Ligne S treatment adds branded floor mats with red piping and the rear-view mirror gets a black cap with red stripe to match the exterior mirrors.
Customers wanting to create their own bespoke Peugeot 308 have a range of individual alloy wheels, sill protectors, spoilers floor mats and spoilers to choose from, for more unique customisation.
Mechanically, the base 308 is unchanged with the same 96kW/230Nm turbocharged three -cylinder petrol engine driving the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
With a manual gearbox, the Peugeot 3008 range kicks off with the $21,990 Access and tops out with the warmed 1.6-litre GT priced from $41,990 before on-road costs. Four Active and Allure variants pad out the middle of the range.
The model is also available with a 2.0-litre diesel engine from $35, 290 and as a load-lugging wagon costing $35,490 for the most affordable version.
Since its introduction last year Peugeot's small car has invigorated sales with 705 sales to the end of May this year, and with a 40.9 per cent increase in registrations, the 308 is the French car-makers best seller.
