The 2014 Peugeot 308 has been spied undergoing cold weather testing in northern Europe.

Looking far more conservative than its predecessor, the five-door model appears to eschew the odd-ball styling for a more upscale design which closely mimics the 208 and 2008. Notable highlights include a slender grille, a sloping roofline and a less pronounced rear-end.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but speculation suggests we can expect a variety of four-cylinder units that develop between 90 (67 kW) and 160 hp (119 kW). There could also be a performance oriented GTi with approximately 200 hp (149 kW).

The 2014 Peugeot 308 will likely debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year. It will eventually be followed by a three-door coupe, a convertible and an estate.
