The Peugeot 301 sedan will receive a facelift in China. Most eye catching are the new grille and lights, with a design similar to the Peugeot 308 sedan. Other changes include the front bumper and rear lights. The facelifted Peugeot 301 will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese auto market soon thereafter.
This is the current 301, it debuted in 2013. It is the cheapest sedan in Peugeot’s China lineup. List price starts at 95.700 yuan and ends at 119.700 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.6 with 117hp, mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.
The engine and ‘boxes will continue unchanged in the facelifted 108 and price will be about the same.
The 301 is manufactured in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. Its sister model, the Citroen C-Elysee, will receive a facelift as well.
New lights. The Peugeot logo seems a bit bigger than before.
No the logo is not bigger. It wouldn’t make any sense to spend extra cost by making the logo slightly bigger.
