The new 308 SW is the latest vehicle to showcase PEUGEOT’s new design language with sharp lines and a dynamic silhouette, and has the brand’s roaring lion’s head logo sitting proudly at the front of the vehicle.
The new PEUGEOT 308 SW introduces an even more practical and versatile variant of the new 308, suitable for both families and fleet users. Available with the latest driver aids and safety technologies, the new 308 SW will arrive in showrooms early 2022.
For the first time, the new 308 SW is available with plug-in hybrid technology as well as efficient diesel and petrol engines, giving buyers the power of choice to choose the powertrain that suits their needs.
With a spacious boot and a modular interior, the new 308 SW offers new levels of versatility and practicality in the compact estate segment.
Inside, the new 308 SW comes with PEUGEOT’s latest i-Cockpit interior and PEUGEOT’s new connected infotainment system, the i-Connect Advanced, which brings a smartphone-like user experience to the cockpit. The new 308 SW is also available with the latest semi-autonomous driver assist features and safety technologies.
The new PEUGEOT 308 SW will be produced in France at the Mulhouse plant and will be available to order from PEUGEOT Retailers and via PEUGEOT Buy Online later in the year, with first deliveries taking place in early 2022. Buy Online allows customers to configure and order their vehicle entirely online and makes purchasing a car online simple and convenient. Customers can configure their vehicle, obtain a part exchange valuation, personalise their finance and complete their purchase including home delivery options where available, all from the comfort of their own home.
A SHARP AND PRACTICAL DESIGN
The new 308 SW measures 4.64m long – 6cm longer than the previous iteration, and has been lowered by 20mm, with a height of 1.44m. Compared to the new 308, the new 308 SW comes with a 55mm longer wheelbase, with the rear overhang 21cm longer for improved boot volume.
The new 308 SW has been designed with aerodynamic efficiency in mind and comes with a Cx coefficient of just 0.277. The aerodynamic performance is helped with the new generation of PEUGEOT wheels, which have been designed to reduce drag, and achieve a net carbon reduction of 2g/km CO2 alone. The aerodynamic wheels, combined with PEUGEOT’s choice of A or A+ graded tyres help improve fuel economy, without compromising the new 308 SW’s agile handling.
A PRACTICAL AND VERSATILE INTERIOR
Built on the new version of PEUGEOT’s EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform 2) multi-energy platform, the dimensions of the new 308 SW perfectly meet the expectations of the compact estate segment customers, with one of the largest boot capacities in the market, as well as a versatile modular design to improve everyday practicality.
Load volume capacity in the new 308 SW is 608-litres, extending to 1,634-litres with the rear seats folded. The new 308 SW comes with a two-position boot floor, which helps improve capacity. The load area also comes with a 12V socket, with LED lighting and two storage nets and bag hooks. GT Premium models come standard with an automatically opening tailgate, which can be activated by sweeping the foot underneath the bumper or via the key fob.
To make it even more versatile, the new PEUGEOT 308 SW comes standard with a three-part rear seat configuration (40/20/40 split) and has a system to instantly fold the rear row by using two controls easily accessible from the sides of the boot. The three independently folding rear seats improve the 308 SW’s versatility, with the vehicle able to accommodate items up to 1.85m long.
The new 308 SW features PEUGEOT’s latest i-Cockpit interior and comes with PEUGEOT’s new i-Connect Advanced infotainment system that introduces a smartphone-like user interface to the 10-inch HD digital display. On GT & GT Premium models, the 10-inch HD display cluster features a 3D display. Fully configurable and customisable, this digital screen has several display modes, including those for the TomTom Connected 3D Navigation, media source, driving aids and energy flow.
CHOICE OF POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT POWERTRAINS
In keeping with PEUGEOT’s commitment to the ‘Power of Choice’, the new 308 SW is available with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options from launch:
– HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 – a combination of an 180hp (132kW) PureTech engine and an 81kW electric motor mated to the e-EAT8 automatic gearbox. It emits as little as 26 g/km of C0₂ and up to 36 miles of 100% electric range (according to the WLTP protocol, in the process of being approved)
– HYBRID 180 e-EAT8 – a combination of a 150hp (110kW) PureTech engine and an 81kW electric engine mated to the e-EAT8 gearbox, with emissions from 25g/km of C0₂ and up to 37 miles of 100% electric range (according to WLTP protocol, in the process of being approved)
With emissions as low as 26g/km CO2, the new 308 SW is ideal for both fleet and business users with a Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rate of just 13%.
Both versions are powered by a 12.4kWh lithium-ion battery, while there are two types of on-board chargers available – a standard 3.7kW charger and an optional 7.4kW fast charger. The estimated recharging time is 1h 55m when fitted with the optional 7.4kW on board charger and 3h 55m with the standard 3.7kW onboard charger.
