Peugeot 208 And 308 Tech Editions Add New Features Inside And Out

Peugeot wants to appeal to those in the market for a new 208 or 308, with the Tech Edition spec, available on both cars.

In the subcompact hatchback, the special edition can be had from €19,500 ($22,564) in France, or €5,450 ($6,306) more than the base model, but it’s positioned at the top of the range and builds upon the Allure grade. For the extra cash, buyers get to enjoy the distinctive design elements such as the special badges on the front doors, 16-inch Titanium Diamantage wheel and gloss black door handles.

Inside, the car gets a full-grain leather steering wheel and Techmat Mistral 3D mesh upholstery with Zephyr Gray stitching. These special features are added alongside a range of driving assistance systems, including the reversing camera, Front Park Assist, Park Assist and Active City Brake.

Powering the Peugeot 208 Tech Edition are several engines, such as the PureTech petrol units, with 82PS (81hp / 60kW) and 110PS (108hp / 81kW), married to either a five-speed manual, six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox, depending on the selected version. Meanwhile, the BlueHDi diesel is rated at 100PS (99hp / 74kW) and is available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Billed as being an alternative to the GT Line, the Peugeot 308 Tech Edition has a starting price of €26,550 ($30,722) locally. It adds specific badges on the front fenders, 17-inch Ruby Diamond alloy wheels, stainless steel pedals, leather steering wheel, and Alcantara upholstery with blue and orange stitching.

Customers have to choose between the five-door hatchback or estate body styles, and decide which engine suits their needs best. Peugeot offers the 308 Tech Edition with the 110PS (108hp / 81kW) and 130PS (128hp / 97kW) petrol units, along with the 130PS (128hp / 97kW) diesel. The first one is available solely with a six-speed manual transmission, the second one can be had with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic, and the same goes for the oil burner.
