New Peugeot 308 SW

Combining high-performance and sporty looks with it's imposing style and even bolder identity. If the standard Peugeot 308 hatchback is practical, that makes the SW the ultimate family car. It’s essentially an estate version of that model, taking all of the style with an added dose of practicality. That means it’s not only useful as a family car but opens its appeal to those who need more luggage space.



Exterior Design

Peugeot’s knack for making good looking mainstream cars is clear with the 308 SW, which manages to achieve that tricky task of making an estate look good. The front end is the same as the hatchback, so you get the sharp-looking headlight design and angular lower front bumper.

At the rear, the swooping lines converge on a softly styled tailgate that has quite a large opening, making loading items easy. The curved taillights look smart, while the angled contours in the bootlid break up the look of the large panel nicely.

Interior Design

Just behind the wheel and it’s clear that Peugeot’s focus on style continues to the interior. The 308 SW has a well thought out cabin design that’s characterful and interesting while also remaining usable. It has a 9.7-inch infotainment screen in the centre of the dashboard and a small, sporty steering wheel ahead of the driver.

Rear passenger space still isn’t the best in class, but thanks to the estate shape the large boot is now even bigger, meaning that you get the luggage capacity of much larger, more expensive cars.

Technology

It’s not form over function with the 308 SW, though, because there’s a lot of technology on-board. The 9.7-inch infotainment system is the highlight in the dashboard, being quick and easy to use and housing many of the controls such as the air conditioning. The digital instruments ahead of the driver are a neat touch too.

There are also various driver assistance technologies to note too, including includes adaptive cruise control, speed limit recognition, and a smart park assistant – particularly useful when reverse parking the larger rear end. It also gets a connected TomTom navigation system that boasts real-time traffic data.

Performance 

There are various petrol and diesel engines available, so whether you spend most of your time in town or cruising motorways, there’s a powertrain for you.

The petrol units are 1.2 litres in size with power outputs of 110 and 130bhp, while the 1.5-litre diesel has a choice of 100 or 130bhp. If you want the eight-speed automatic transmission you’ll have to choose the more powerful engines, while a six-speed manual is available on all versions.

If you’re looking for Peugeot’s famed GTI models, these are only available on the hatchback version of the 308.

​Trim Levels for the Peugeot 308 SW :

The new 308 has just been revealed, and as such Peugeot has not revealed the specifications that will be available in the UK. While the names of the trim levels might change, we can take a look at the previous model’s trims to get an idea of the equipment on offer.

Active:

The entry-level Active model doesn’t hold back on equipment, benefitting from the full-sized 9.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav built-in. It can also be connected to your smartphone through MirrorLink. Extra equipment includes dual-zone climate control and rear parking sensors.

Allure:

The Allure trim ups the appeal with 17-inch alloy wheels, aluminium roof bars and a panoramic glass roof. Front parking sensors help you into a tight spot, while electric folding door mirrors protect your car while stopped.

Tech Edition:

If technology is your thing then the Tech Edition is the trim to go for. It comes packed with equipment, such as a Drive Assist Pack, Safety Pack including driver attention alert, Active Lane Keeping Assistance, and City Park with a colour reversing camera. It also upgrades the 17-inch alloy wheels to diamond cut units.


GT:

While you can’t get the full GTI model in SW guise, you can get the GT trim, which is a halfway house. It gets the sporty looks as well as lowered sports suspension, sports front brakes, driver assistance pack and keyless entry and go.

GT Line:

Opt for the GT Line and you’re getting a more sporty looking car without compromising on comfort. You get a sporty body kit, full LED headlights and Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance. With a diesel engine, it’s a great compromise between looks and low running costs.
