Peugeot Updates Its 301 Sedan For Developing Markets

#Peugeot launched the 301 in 2012 as a budget sedan targeted specifically at developing markets around the world. Now more than four years later and with over 360,000 units sold, the French automaker has rolled out a series of enhancements.

The facelift includes a more upright grille, reshaped hood, and flush-mounted headlights, all made to reflect Peugeot's current design language. There's a more pronounced beltline as well, along with new color options and new 16-inch wheels in two-tone finish.

The updates continue inside, where the French manufacturer has fitted a new 7-inch touchscreen to display imagery from the reversing camera, TomTom navigation, and smartphone mirroring system.

Buyers in markets around the world will be able to choose between four engine options. There's a 1.2-liter inline-three rated at 82 metric horsepower and a 1.6-liter four good for 115, with a 1.6-liter diesel four available in 92- or 100-horse specs. They all come mated to a five-speed manual transmission, with a six-speed automatic available on the larger gasoline unit.

The introduction of the new Peugeot 301, pictured in this solitary image, follows hot on the heels of its similarly revised twin, the Citroën C-Elysée. They're both manufactured at PSA's plant in Vigo, Spain, alongside the Citroën C4 Picasso and Grand Picasso, as well as the Peugeot Partner and Citroën Berlingo vans.
