2011 Peugeot 308 facelift unveiled

Available in April, the updated 308 features revised styling and an improved interior.

The Peugeot 308 facelift has been unveiled ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Available in April, the updated model features modified bumpers, a "floating" grille, and restyled headlights. Other goodies include a new bonnet, LED daytime driving lights, and restyled wheels which range in sizes from 16- to 18-inches.

Inside, designers focused on providing an "enhanced sense of perceived quality." To achieve this, they added improved seats, higher quality materials, and revised trim. If that doesn't impress you, options include a panoramic sunroof (sedan and estate), automatic dual-zone climate control, GPS navigation, and a JBL audio system.

Under the hood, a variety of engines will be available. On the petrol side, choices include the 98 bhp (73 kW / 99 PS) 1.4-litre VTi, the 120 bhp (89 kW / 122 PS) 1.6-litre VTi, the 156 bhp (116 kW / 158 PS) 1.6-litre THP, and the 200 bhp (149 kW / 203 PS) 1.6-litre THP. If you're a diesel fan, you get to choose from the 92 bhp (69 kW / 93 PS) 1.6-litre HDi FAP, the 112 bhp (84 kW / 114 PS) 1.6-litre e-HDi FAP, the 150 bhp (112 kW / 152 PS) 2.0-litre HDi FAP, and the 163 bhp (122 kW / 165 PS) 2.0-litre HDi FAP.
