The Peugeot 308 has been created to embody the concept of 'simplicity'.
Peugeot has used this idea as its inspiration to create the 308 vehicle line, coupling it with new ideas with regard to styling and design. The exterior showcases all of Peugeot's forward-thinking concepts, and motorists will find the interior of the 308 an enduringly pleasant space from which to enjoy the drive.
Sleek and elegant, the exterior of the 308 creates a definite and immediate visual impression. It has large wheel arches and lowered ground clearance, which mark it out as being a dynamic and performance-focused vehicle. Sporty curves make the silhouette of the 308 unique and unmistakable, and create a smooth line for the eye to follow around the vehicle. Peugeot has also made use of a dramatic new light signature which uses full LED headlights, located at the front and rear of the 308.
Technology is given full focus within, from the 308's Peugeot i-Cockpit. The design has been kept minimalist and uncluttered in order to pull the vehicle occupant's full attention to the easily-accessible technological features. The eye is immediately drawn to the raised centre console, which houses the 9.7-inch colour touchscreen. This serves as the activation point for all of the 308's cabin functions, including dual-zone air conditioning, satellite navigation, and Bluetooth® hands-free functionality for telephony services. Black gloss and satin chrome form the cabin's visual theme, complemented by the sports steering wheel and modern instrument cluster positioned on the dashboard.
Two petrol and three diesel engines are offered for the 308. Both the most economically advantageous and the most vigorous engines are diesels; on one hand the 1.6 litre, 92hp HDi diesel returns combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg and carbon emissions of 99g/km, while the 2.0 lite 180hp HDi can thrust the 308 from a standing start to 62mph in a bare 8.4 seconds. The 1.2 and 1.6 litre petrol units, however, provide an excellent compromise between performance and economy.
A suite of six airbags is made up of two front airbags, two side airbags and two curtain airbags, positioned to protect all vehicle occupants. Drive assistant safety systems include the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), which monitors vehicle traction and the road surface in order to maintain full stability at all times.
