The new Peugeot 308 is available to order from today, with prices starting from £14,495.

Five engines will be available from launch, including a 1.6-litre HDi 92 diesel that boasts CO2 emissions of just 95 g/km.

In the spring, a new three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, the 1.2-litre e-THP, will be added, with outputs of either 110 or 130 bhp.

A pair of BlueHDi models – a 1.6-litre with 120 bhp and CO2 of 83 g/km, plus a 2.0-litre with 150 bhp and 103 g/km – will follow soon after.

Four trim levels will make up the new 308 range – Access, Active, Allure and Feline.

All models will offer air conditioning, remote locking, cruise control, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.

The Active model starts from £17,195 and adds 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, electric handbrake, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors and a 9.7-inch touch-screen with satellite navigation.

Priced from £18,645, the Allure receives full LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera and front parking sensors.

The top-of-the-range Feline starts at £20,995 and boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic glass roof, Alcantara sports seats, dynamic cruise control, emergency collision alert and emergency collision braking system.

First deliveries are expected in January 2014.
