THE PEUGEOT 308 GOES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH
- Peugeot 308 HDi 90 only emits 120g/km of CO2
- Already over 100,000 examples produced
- Priced from only £11,995 on-the-road
With stories on CO2 emissions filling the media, customers purchasing one of Peugeot's new 308 HDi 90 models can feel happy they are driving a family car that emits only 120 g/km of CO2.
The Peugeot 308 HDi 90 is one of the newest members of the Peugeot 308 range which was launched in September this year, and has already seen over 100,000 models produced.
The 308 HDi 90 is available in both three and five door versions and in two trim levels. It is powered by a 1.6 litre HDi diesel engine which produces a maximum power of 90 bhp and a maximum torque of 161 lb ft at only 1750 rpm. This state of the art diesel engine combines both great driveability with low fuel consumption (74.34 mpg – Extra Urban drive cycle) and very low CO2 emissions of 120g/km.
With fuel prices steadily rising, understanding the costs involved in running a car become more important. Therefore purchasing a new Peugeot 308 HDi 90 with its low emissions (Vehicle Excise Duty of only £35) and its ability to travel over 800 miles on a tank full of fuel, makes perfect sense.
