The award-winning Peugeot 308 is back with an entirely new design driven by the idea of simplicity. This family hatchback is sleek, modern and elegant which is emphasised by its range of classic colours from Bianca White to Twilight Blue.
Allow yourself to be seduced by the Peugeot 308's sporty curves and shapely silhouette and then fall in love with the details such as sequential LED front indicators that are an exclusive marker for sport models.
From intuitive technology to efficient engines, the new 308 provides an enhanced and instinctive driving experience that brings a new clarity and joy.
Lighter than the previous 308, with a lower centre of gravity, a more compact steering wheel and newly-developed electric power steering, the new-look 308 is an incredibly responsive and controlled car.
Unmistakably Peugeot, the 308 has a sharp design and confident lines that are everywhere to be seen. With a 20mm lower centre of gravity than its predecessor, the new 308 now sits closer to the road giving it a more purposeful stance.
Sharp lines run the full length of the car from the sculpted bonnet at the front with a strong 'muscular' shoulder that builds over the rear wheel arch to the perfectly sculpted rear.
The new 308 also features the signature Peugeot 'claw' effect LED lighting at the rear that harks back to the iconic Peugeot 504 Coupe and Cabriolet. The front also receives full LED headlamps* and daytime running lights that are fully integrated into the headlamp clusters to increase the car's visibility during daylight hours.
*Full LED headlamps feature from Allure level and above
PEUGEOT i-Cockpit is the latest development in car interior architecture which centres around four key elements. These are the compact sports steering wheel, the head up instrument panel, a 9.7" colour touchscreen and a raised minimalist central console.
Peugeot have literally reinvented the wheel, measuring in at 351mm x 329mm, it is genuinely different. Its compact dimensions increase the visibility of the car's instruments and provides heightened responses in corners.
The head up instrument panel provides key information in your line of sight. The LCD displays shows digital speed and cruise control and speed limiter set speeds. More information is available from the 9.7" colour touchscreen which houses several of the 308's key technological features.
The raised central control features few visible buttons because a dashboard doesn't need a button for each of a car's features.
Who needs a key to open their car these days? Owners of the new Peugeot 308 can use its 'Open & Go' technology to open the car without taking the key out of their pocket or bag. Using sensors mounted in the front door handle, opening the 308 becomes a simple task of grabbing the handle and the car will automatically unlock. You don't even need to take the key out to start the car; once inside just press the stop/start button and that is all that is required to start your journey.
If you thought getting into the car was easy, you haven't tried parking it yet. Using a colour camera mounted at the rear of the Peugeot 308, you will be able to navigate tight spots with precision. The reversing camera technology automatically engages when selecting reverse gear. It is linked to the 9.7" touchscreen in the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit and works in conjunction with the rear parking aid.
With the Peugeot 308, you'll never lose your way again with its intuitive satellite navigation system which includes several key features including full postcode lookup, traffic incident updates and a point of interest function. It also comes with several route planning options such as 'Eco Route' planning to guide you the most fuel efficient way. The new 308 also has it covered if your travels take you further afield as your satellite navigation features complete mapping of Europe (44 countries).
PeugeotConnect Apps is an apps service that is designed to respond to any requirement that you may have during a journey. You can customise your 308 to compliment your lifestyle with a host of services including fuel station locations and the price of their fuel and Trip Advisor to provide reviews of nearby attractions, restaurants, pubs and hotels. Users can also download the Michelin restaurant guide to search for quality eateries.
The 308 GTi 270 has been developed by Peugeot Sport to provide an exhilarating driving experience in a compact car.
To achieve this, the entire vertical suspension at the front has been specially designed with stiffer springs and a calibrated shock absorber with hydraulic stop. It provides a thrilling driving experience with acceleration from 0-62mph in just 6.0 seconds with the sound of the exhaust as the growling soundtrack to your drive.
Created as a sports car, the 308 GTi 270 does not disappoint with classic sports car features such as twin exhausts with chrome pipes, 380mm front brake discs with red four-piston calipers bearing the Peugeot Sport logo and GTi logos on the front wings and tailgate.
It's not just the exterior that makes the 308 GTi 270 a sports car; the interior is also brandished with GTi sportiness. The pedals, foot rest, gear lever knob and door sills are finished in aluminium with the latter carrying the Peugeot Sport and GTi logos. Red stitching can be found throughout the cabin on the luxury deep pile carpet mats, door cards, seats and gear lever gaiter.
The new Peugeot 308 comes equipped with award-winning technology under the bonnet. A panel of 65 judges from 31 countries awarded the PureTech 3-cylinder engine technology 'International Engine of the Year 2015' for the 1.0L and 1.4L categories.
The 308 also inherits BlueHDi diesel engines that are the cleanest possible complying with Euro 6 emission standards to deliver exceptional fuel economy of up to 91.1mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 82g/km.
