Peugeot 309 History
The Peugeot 309 was built in France in 1985 and the right hand drive version would be built in Coventry, England. As this car was initially supposed to be marketed as a Talbot, the design was said to be slightly awkward looking for a Peugeot. This was due to the car being designed ‘in house’ where as all other Peugeots of this time were designed by the Italian design company Pininfarina. This car was extremely popular in the UK. It received a mid-life makeover in 1989 which was mainly to the exterior and interior design. The 309 was replaced by the 306 in 1993.
The Peugeot 309 was available in 1.1, 1.3, 1.4, 1.6 and 1.9L petrol and 1.8 and 1.9L diesel engines. The diesel engines are the more economical of the available engines.
