The GT-Line replaces the top-of-the-range manual only diesel Outdoor and brings the naming into line with the 208 and 308. Replacing the diesel/manual combo is the 1.2-litre turbo triple with the vastly better six-speed automatic.
The pricing is unchanged from the model it replaces at $32,990, that number placing it above the base Active ($26,490) and mid-spec Allure ($30,490).
That buys you GT-Line alloys, some red flashing inside and out, 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink (Android Auto is due in June 2017), dual-zone climate control, sat nav, auto wipers and headlights, cornering lights using the front foglamps, rear privacy glass, better cloth trim than the Active, 'smooth leather' steering wheel, alloy pedals, GT-Line rear bumpers and chrome exhaust and electro-chromatic rear vision mirror. The new grille has a black surround with Peugeot lettering.

The GT-Line also comes with 'Grip Control', a control system that lets you select the type of surface you're dealing with (mud, sand, snow) and help you get through it. It's not all-wheel drive, but it helps.
As with the Allure, five star EuroNCAP safety comes courtesy of six airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls and AEB operating up to 30km/h.
The GT-Line also has the Allure's self parking, which Peugeot says will squeeze you into a spot with 20cm clearance at each end.
