Peugeot Australia has now published official pricing for the entire 308 hatchback and wagon range.
UPDATE, 30/03/2023 – Peugeot Australia has announced pricing for the new GT Sport Plug-In Hybrid flagship. We’ve updated this article and brought it forward.
The range starts at $43,990 before on-road costs for the GT hatchback, and tops out at $64,990 before on-roads for the GT Sport Plug-In Hybrid hatch.
The latter is cheaper than previously published indicative pricing of $66,990 before on-road costs.
The PHEV arrives in the first half of 2023, while petrol models arrived here in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The pricing makes the new 308 a more premium proposition, with even the base model costing over $10,000 more than the entry-level Allure hatch found in the previous range.
The new base model, however, packs more premium features like a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as standard matrix LED headlights.
