The new Peugeot 308 is a five-door hatchback with simple yet stylish design. With improved electric power steering and a lower centre of gravity, it offers a more responsive and enjoyable drive than ever – whether you’re driving solo or with the family in tow.
The exterior design is a reflection of Peugeot’s forward-thinking design concept and the model’s huge energy. The new 308 makes an immediate impression with its smooth, sporty shape, large wheel arches and low ground clearance. These highlights signal the model’s superior performance. Dramatic LED lighting features at the front and rear to get you noticed from every angle, while enhancing the car’s streamlined nature.
Enjoy the new Peugeot 308 from the comfort of the contemporary cabin. Stylish black gloss and elegant satin chrome set the tone for the interior. The sports steering wheel and intuitive instrument cluster on the dashboard are minimalist yet effective design features. Seating is always supportive – choose between ‘comfort’ and ‘sports’ (from Allure level) options to suit your preference. Further enhance your ride with full-grain Nappa leather and a luxurious back massage function. Additional practicality comes in the form of a 470-litre boot, which increases to 1,309 litres when you drop the easy-fold rear seats. There’s plenty of room for all the family and their luggage.
The streamlined design and 140kg weight reduction of the new 308 make it more efficient than ever before. The model comes with a choice of two petrol and three diesel engines to suit buyers’ diverse requirements. The diesels are the most economical choice – the 1.6-litre, 92bhp HDi returns 74.3mpg with emissions as low as 99g/km. The 2.0-litre 180 HDi version rises to 60mph in less than 8.4 seconds. For drivers seeking a better balance of power and performance, the 1.2 and 1.6-litre petrol units are the best choice.
Technology and safety
In a family-friendly hatchback, it goes without saying that safety is a top focus. The new Peugeot 308 is equipped with a suite of six airbags – two front, two side and two curtain. These are designed to protect all occupants on board. Driver assist systems include electronic stability programme to help you remain in control in tricky conditions. It monitors vehicle traction and the road surface to maintain total stability. ISOFIX child-seat mounting points allow for easy installation. When it comes to infotainment, the available 9.7-inch touchscreen is an intelligent activation point for the cabin’s main functions. These include dual-zone air conditioning, satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and music streaming.
