Peugeot 308: trend-setting design
The 308’s external design won the jury over. The new Peugeot 308’s architecture enhances the comfort and dynamism of its profile. It is the first model to have the new Peugeot coat of arms, which is etched in the graphic grille and conceals radar and sensor technology in a fashionable manner.
Matrix LED headlights (in the GT and GT Pack trim levels) complete the chiseled vertical light signature at the front, ensuring more efficiency and safety in everyday life. The LED lights with three claws at the rear assert the Brand’s DNA.
The Peugeot i-Cockpit 3D (digital cluster above the compact steering wheel) has i-Toggles customizable keys beneath the new intuitive touchscreen, similar to a smartphone, in the cabin. The ergonomics and range of adjustment of the seats have been certified by AGR. Inside, a few things stand out: LED ambient lighting (eight colors to pick from) and Alcantara or actual aluminum door panels, depending on the amount of equipment.
The new Peugeot 308 is offered with a variety of engines, demonstrating the “Power of Choice.” The Peugeot 308 comes with two hybrid engines in addition to multiple combustion engine options.
