Peugeot presents the new generation of the 308 compact sedan

Peugeot renews the compact sedan Peugeot 308. Best seller in the segment with over 7 million of vehicles sold in the various generations, 308 today improves the habitability, design and technology on board. A step forward also for green engines.

With 42 international awards on its showcase, the Peugeot 308 has always been a successful model for the French manufacturer. The new version is therefore born on solid foundations. Even more solid, as the 308 now grows in wheelbase, longer than 55 mm. Conversely, the height has been reduced by 20 mm. The car body is therefore more generous, but also more dynamic. The body is distinguished by the pronounced contours of the mudguards and the muscular sides. The front headlights are LED as standard, wrapped in claw-shaped daytime running lights. In the center of the grille stands the new logo of the Lion. Finally, the available colors are 7: Olivine Green, Vertigo Blue, Elixir Red, Mother of Pearl White, Banchisa White, Artense Gray and Pearl Black.

On board, the air conditioning vents are located in front of the passengers’ heads. The standard central touchscreen measures 10 inches and is positioned a little lower than the digital instrument cluster, so as to be closer to the driver’s hand. To ensure maximum comfort, the driver can also use the ‘i-toggle’, that is, shortcut tactile commands that are used to set the air conditioning settings or, for example, a telephone contact. The compact steering wheel, according to the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit philosophy, is able to identify the intensity of the driver’s grip, to trigger any ADAS. Finally, the infotainment system is completely new PEUGEOT i-Connect.
