Following the debut of the performance-oriented 308 GT at the Paris Motor Show, Peugeot has announced details of two new trim levels for the 308 range – GT Line and Sportium.

The sporty GT Line models will offer a flavour of the GT’s sporting character and will be available with the choice of five petrol and diesel engines. Sportium trim, however, is a special edition version, which comes with Peugeot’s economical turbocharged three-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol motors only.

GT Line will be available on both 308 hatchback and estate models and sits between Allure and GT in the range, replacing Feline trim. Extra equipment over Allure models includes 18-inch alloy wheels, twin exhausts with a black lacquered rear diffuser and tinted rear windows.

As for the interior, the GT receives red-stitched half Alcantara sports seats with lumbar adjustment and a massage function. It also gains a bespoke steering wheel with red stitching, along with aluminium-effect pedals and door sill protectors.

The more affordable Sportium special edition sits between Access and Active specification and comes with Peugeot’s the choice of several turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engines. Equipment matches the Access models but adds 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers.

With CO2 emissions as low as 105g/km, car tax for this machine should cost as little as £20 per year. Available with 109bhp or 128bhp, this compact engine should prove equally happy around town or on the motorway. Sportium trim is available on the 308 hatchback and comes with the option of manual or automatic gearboxes.

Prices for the Peugeot 308 GT Line start at £21,345, while the 308 Sportium is available from £17,345.
