Priced from $30,990, the all-new Peugeot 308 will consist of three trim levels in New Zealand: Access, Active and Allure and is available in Hatch (Petrol and Diesel) and Station Wagon (Petrol only) versions.
To win over new customers, the all-new Peugeot 308 is positioned as a strong and different alternative with a design focused on four key themes: efficiency, design, driving experience and quality.
Peugeot designers and engineers have delivered an audacious, intuitive and modern hatchback with a pure and sleek design. Due to the new EMP2 modular platform, the all-new Peugeot 308 has compact dimensions and reduced weight (-140kg). Its driving experience is unprecedented and its CO2 emissions are among the best in its class (with the BlueHDi turbo diesel version at 107 g/km).
A refined interior and innovative instruments and controls (the Peugeot i-cockpit) promise a great driving experience. Its high level of quality and intuitive 9.7” multimedia touch screen are the result of a very ambitious initial design brief, aims to place the car among the very best, embodying Peugeot’s move up-market.
The all-new Peugeot 308 Wagon is dynamic, classy and sporty with a wide stance, (length: 4.58 m and height: 1.47m). Its generous dimensions allow the expectations of customers to be met, customers who attach great importance to the fundamental values in a station wagon: volume, spaciousness, modularity and practicality.
With a volume of 610 dm3 to the VDA 210 standard, the boot on the all-new Peugeot 308 Wagon is clearly among the best in the segment. Its simple forms create a practical and very clear space. Its modularity is achieved with unparalleled simplicity (seats are folded with a single action from inside the boot) and effectiveness (perfectly flat floor).
