The New Peugeot 308

Published Date: 12th Jul 2007

The new Peugeot 308 is set to be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September; a Coupe Cabriolet version will then be launched in 2008.

The 308 is larger than the 307 model, resulting in more interior space and storage capacity - maximum storage capacity with the rear seats folded is 1398 litres. It also has improved interior detailing and finish.

The 308 will be available in 10 different engine types – 5 petrol and 5 diesel. These will range from 1.4 litre models up to 2.0 litre versions. Peugeot also intends to introduce an advanced diesel-electric hybrid in 2008. Peugeot say this new model has stop-start technology plus energy recuperation, enabling better fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. BioFuel versions of the 308 are also due to arrive later in 2008.

The Peugeot 308 will be available in the same trim levels as the 307 model – Urban, S, Sport, SE and GT. Standard specification will include 6 airbags, air-conditioning, Peugeot’s lane departure warning system plus other safety and stability features, alloy wheels plus an MP3-compatible stereo system.
