The 308 is one-of-a-kind. It’s sleek, it’s elegant, and every last detail is designed to make your senses come alive. The bodywork is streamlined and dynamic, and the same can be said of the interior too. Our unique Peugeot i-Cockpit is stripped right down, with a compact steering wheel and most functions controlled by the touch screen, allowing you a high level of technology as well as a pure, minimal design.
Time to let your senses come out to play with the 308. 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 driving experience. Watch the video above to see how top motoring journalist Jonny Smith rates the latest 308.
Due to its simplified, streamlined design ethos, the 308 is very efficient. It’s 140kg lighter than the previous 308, without sacrificing strength or space, and the range of eight engines, including PureTech petrol engines and BlueHDi diesel engines offer both power and efficiency. Even the LED headlights are now more efficient, delivering a car where performance and efficiency are perfectly balanced.
The challenge behind the latest 308 was to produce a car that will be like new after three years of driving it. So the greatest care has been taken over every detail, from the plush leather seating to the scratch-resistant dashboard. It’s built on a brand new platform (chassis) and is made from a high-strength steel using a new welding process. We know we've built a strong, high quality car, but, just to be on the safe side, we’ve put it through its paces with over 400,000 miles of endurance and safety testing and 1000 test drivers.
The 308 offers a choice of three PureTech petrol engines. Peugeot’s PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engine technology delivers a drive and performance normally associated with bigger engines but with significantly improved fuel consumption. It’s the result of intelligent, innovative engineering, which combines reduced weight materials with the efficiency of direct fuel injection to give you maximum pleasure behind the wheel, at any speed, for less.
