From Peugeot press: The new Peugeot 308 comes with a new look, features innovative e-HDi micro-hybrid technology and optimizes fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, which start from just 98 g/km. The 308 is available in three body shapes (Saloon, CC and SW).
The new 308 features innovative e-HDi micro-hybrid technology, the latest generation STOP & START, on the 1.6 liter HDi FAP 112 bhp Euro 5 engine. This offer, on the "entry level" engine, is available with a semi-automatic manual gearbox and, for the first time, with a full manual gearbox, for optimal drivability.
In addition to micro-hybrid technology, all factors impacting the level of CO2 emissions have been optimized: weight has been reduced by 25 kg on average per car, and the 308 uses 16" tires with Very Low Rolling Resistance.
Passengers in the Peugeot 308 saloon will also be able to benefit from a "sunny" passenger compartment thanks to the panoramic roofs available for this body shape. They increase the total glazed surface area to 4.86 m² on the saloon and 5.58 m² on the SW. The light level inside the car can be regulated by means of an electrically operated roller blind associated with this equipment.
To reduce CO2 emissions as much as possible, the new 308 is uniquely equipped with the very latest generation engines for both petrol (VTi or THP engines) and diesel versions (new HDi Euro 5 engines).
The 308 offers 8 available engines in petrol and diesel, as well as different possible gearbox combinations (manual, electronically-controlled manual or automatic).
