2017 Peugeot 301 facelift: More upscale look for developing world sedan

The 2017 Peugeot 301 facelift has been given a more upscale look with new headlamps, taillamps, grille, bumpers, and wheels. The tech has also been updated.

The design of car has been revised to make it more like the rest of the brand’s range, and it now looks like a shrunken 508.

Under the hood, there’s a new 1.2-liter 3-cylinder gas engine with 82PS (60kW/81hp). The 1.6-liter VTi 4-cylinder gas engine with 115PS (85kW/113hp) is now available with a 6-speed automatic.

Other over engines include the 100PS (74kW/99hp) 1.6-liter BlueHDi diesel, and 92PS (68kW/91hp) 1.6-liter HDi diesel.

All engines, apart from the 1.6-liter VTi, are available only with a 5-speed manual.

There’s also a new 7-inch touchscreen which can display the reversing camera and TomTom navigation system.

The 301 sedan is sold only in developing markets. Launched in 2012, over 360,000 units of the 301 have been sold so far.
