Peugeot boosts appeal of 308
Peugeot Ireland has announced the introduction of two special edition 308 models. The Access Plus and Active Urban special editions gain extra equipment over the standard cars without asking for any extra money in return.
The new Access Plus model is based on the current 308 Access, which is already equipped with six airbags, ESP, air conditioning, ISOFIX fittings and four electric windows. To that the Access Plus gains €1,000 worth of extras including front fog lights, alloy wheels and Bluetooth. The Access Plus model is available for €21,495 - the same piece as the entry level car.
The new Active Urban is based on the 308 Active and gains reverse parking sensors and electric folding mirrors. At €22,595 the Active Urban is actually €500 cheaper than the car it's based on.
Both special editions are powered by the 1.6-litre HDi diesel engine that uses 4.2 litres/100km on the combined cycle while emitting 110g/CO2, enough to see it qualify for the A3 road tax band of €190 per annum.
Special Edition 308 models purchased during February will qualify for one year's free road tax while all Peugeot cars now come with an extended five-year warranty.
