New Peugeot 308 to debut in Geneva

New Peugeot 308 to debut in Geneva

Peugeot has revealed the looks of the facelifted 308 model that the French brand will be premiering at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, in the beginning of March. The design of the new 308 has now been incorporated in Peugeot’s latest stylistic codes. The new 308 is also setting new standards in terms of CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency thanks to the incorporation of the e-HDi micro-hybrid technology on the 1.6 litre HDi FAP 112 bhp Euro 5 engine.

Available in hatchback, SW and CC body styles the new design cues featuring in the restyled 308 can be spotted for example on the “floating” front grille concept, which is enhanced by the satin chrome bead, on the V-shaped nose of the bonnet and on the boomerang shaped lights.

At the back, the new 308 hatchback gets a sporty touch thanks to the styling element in the shape of a spoiler and two inserts, which can have a chrome finish, and suggest exhaust nozzles.

The back of the SW has been designed with a wider boot aperture, which also had influence on the lower panel and the rear lights looks.

On the CC has a look that emphasizes the sense of horizontally, which comes to reinforce the impression of width.

The new 308 range will be featuring Peugeot's micro-hybrid e-HDi Stop & Start technology. When combined with the 1.6 litre HDi FAP 112 Euro 5 diesel engine CO2 emissions are reduced to 98g/km, the lowest in this segment.

While developing the new 308 Peugeot paid special attention to its CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency. In order to enhance these characteristics the overall weight of the 308 has been reduced by 25kg (average on all body variants), fitted with new 16-inch ultra low rolling resistance tyres and features a wind drag figure of just 0.28Cd. Thanks to these improvements the new Peugeot 308 HDi FAP 92 version, fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox produces 110 g/km of CO2.

The full engine lineup will be composed by four petrol and four diesel engines.

- 1.4 litre VTi 98 bhp with 5-speed manual gearbox;
- 1.6 litre VTi 120 bhp with 5-speed manual gearbox or automatic gearbox;
- 1.6 litre THP 156 bhp with 6-speed manual gearbox or automatic gearbox;
