Peugeot, the world-leader in coupe cabriolet sales, has launched the much-anticipated new Peugeot 308 coupe cabriolet in Ireland.
The 308 CC builds on the many strengths of the popular 307 CC to offer the highest standards in terms of quality, class-leading comfort, and safety equipment with attractive styling.
The 308 coupe cabriolet has been launched in Ireland with one trim level, a 308 CC sport pack powered with a new 1.6 HDi 112bhp diesel engine. The model retails from €33,790 plus dealer delivery related charges.
The new Peugeot 308 coupe cabriolet transforms from sleek coupe to stylish cabriolet in 20 seconds. Low-slung, with an aerodynamically positioned front windscreen, a deeply profiled lower front panel, generously sculpted sides, a newly styled boot lid with spectacular LED rear lights, the 308 CC stands out in the crowd.
Compared to its predecessor, the Peugeot 307 CC, the 308 is lower, but longer and wider, with a larger front and rear track to improve the overall performance and increase internal passenger space.
The new Peugeot 308 CC is the first model in the range to benefit from Peugeot’s new 1.6 litre 112bhp diesel engine. This new engine is the result of Peugeot’s continual development of its diesel HDi FAP technology, widely acclaimed for its performance and efficiency. This new 1.6 litre HDi FAP diesel engine has been designed to meet the requirements of the new Euro 5 emission standards. It benefits from a number of improvements over the current 110bhp unit with improved performance in terms of flexibility and responsiveness, as well as noise reduction, while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Mark Hayes, marketing manager at Peugeot in Ireland, says: “The arrival of the new Peugeot 308 coupe cabriolet in Ireland marks the 76th anniversary of Peugeot’s CC know-how. The new model builds on the success of the 307 CC to offer even greater levels of comfort and safety equipment and sets a new benchmark in the segment in terms of quality.”
