Draws cues from European Peugeot models.
The Peugeot 301 was introduced in 2012, and is about to get its mid-life facelift. The 2017 Peugeot 301 (facelift) has leaked online through spy shots published by auto.sina.com.
The Renault Logan competitor features a considerably refreshed front fascia – from the headlamps, to the radiator grille, central air intake, bumper and hood have been redesigned. The Peugeot Lion has been shifted from the hood to the upper grille. The door mirrors seem to feature integrated turn indicator and the new tail light graphics are reminiscent of the Peugeot 3008 and Peugeot 5008.
The 2017 Peugeot 301 is said to measure 4,442 mm in length, 1,748 mm in width, 1,476 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,652 mm, same as that of the current model. The 2017 model will be available with 185/65 R15 and 195/55 R16 tyre choices, with wheels in two different designs.
The 2017 Peugeot 301 will be powered by a 117 hp 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine. The facelifted model is expected to debut at Auto Guangzhou 2016 that will be held from 19-27 November. It remains to be seen if the same design is transferred to the global 301 that is sold in Europe and Africa.
