Peugeot 308 2013

Peugeot more of what you´re for.

Peugeot 308 2013 Hatch Petrol: 1.6-litre with six-speed auto 115kW/240Nm. $31,490 (Manufacturer’s Price)

Any idea how many Peugeot sold up to September year, remembering the company launched the car in 2007 and has recently the first revision of the model? The is one million.

It’s a pretty effort, and after driving in the latest Peugeot 308 hatch for the week, Peugeot Australia need to shore up its supply, my guess is that they’ll a whole lot more Peugeot based on the new styling effort

Gone is the gaping that critics thought the giant plankton-eating whale although I saw it as a typically avant-garde from Peugeot’s in-house

That said, if I had the choice, I’d be with the new design in a heartbeat, as it retains the ‘oh so French’ styling of the 308, but at the same time also non-polarising and downright

It retains the floating grille, but the intake is smaller and more The new  Peugeot 308 appears from both ends, but in the overall dimensions are exactly the You’ll also notice are fewer accentuating lines on the new for improved aerodynamics and the LED daytime lights round off the car’s look.

Apart from the cleaner there’s another significant to the Peugeot 308. but only at first glance to the more Peugeot aficionado. It’s the lion symbol that more than likely the next decade of Peugeot The redesigned ‘king of the jungle’ might well be considered too; certainly it’s curvaceous and more contemporary the previous iteration.

Peugeot has using the lion symbol on its cars ever since it the Type 3 in 1906. On the latest 308, the lion sits on a black base with a chrome which we first saw on the Peugeot RCZ coupe and the new 508.

The rear of the Peugeot 308 looks frumpy than the previous due mostly to a smart chrome above the logo that that wonders for the rear There’s more chrome out a black diffuser of sorts which if finished with edging for the stylised exhaust All in all, it’s much look and exactly what was if Peugeot wants to open up of the 308 to a broader market.

Inside the 308. it’s hard to any significant changes, but in my opinion wasn’t a lot wrong with the model. The entire dash is in soft touch material and are plenty of faux metal used on the trim to give the car a look and feel.

There is, however, some plastics used around the stalks on the steering wheel hub and box area, but that’s not uncommon in the class. What is disappointing is the center stack has been left untouched. Despite I said earlier, it would been nice to see higher materials used here of the metal look surface, is in need of a refresh.

Like all Peugeots, the seats are superb and goes for the fabric-upholstered versions It would be an injustice not to call pews ‘sports’ seats, as the of side and seat-base bolster is than those in some of the performance-oriented cars we have The same goes for the leather three-spoke steering wheel, is beautifully tactile and decidedly

Don’t expect to find the confusing array of remote on this tiller. It’s not this level of Peugeot 308 come with that it’s just that likes to hide them in stalks behind the wheel, takes some getting to. The rationale behind the idea is it’s safer, given you the controls through touch and rather than having to at the steering wheel to alter the change tracks, or operate the control.

In the variant in the Peugeot 308 model you can expect a large inventory of comforts and kit on board the Active turbo variant. Features one-touch electric windows anti-pinch (that’s all four electronic parking assistance for the (optional up front), heated door mirrors, location of car via an ‘plip’, quality audio with six speakers and Bluetooth and music streaming, dual climate control with air glove box, pollen and filters, auto on headlights and as well as auto-dimming rear mirror, and that’s just the

The options list isn’t extensive on the Peugeot 308, nor are what I would call Take the panoramic glass it’s a winner with of any age and at $1000 it’s pretty value for money, especially the full length electric You might also want to to 17-inch alloys (from that will cost you – again, great value.

It be classed in the small car segment, but many such cars, the 308 can transport four adults in or five not so comfortably. The ‘semi-tall’ of the 308 ensures that passengers a tonne of headroom and there’s legroom in the rear to provide for those longer family

There’s no shortage of boot either along with a aperture and plenty of depth.

Peugeot 308

the latest Peugeot 308 is both stylish and appointed, these are not the only why you would put a Peugeot 308 on your list along with closest European competitors. Peugeot, especially in the hatch it’s as much about the behind the wheel as it is with any aspect of the car.

In fact, until the Peugeot 308 was released in 2007, it could be that Volkswagen’s iconic didn’t have a competitor in the small car class. At least not it came to ride, handling and performance, it didn’t.

Let’s with the engine shall we. concern yourself that only a 1.6-litre petrol and it’s going to be a struggle those steeper inclines or on the highway. Just keep yourself that under the sits a version of the engine powers the MINI Cooper S. plenty of punch from the turbo despite producing of power.

There’s also of torque from 1400rpm, so your right foot and it feels like a hot hatch. a bit of lag if you jump on the throttle, so it’s to ease the power down you bury the right foot.

The six-speed auto is a smooth-shifting that will quickly top gear in the interest of reducing fuel bill. Drive it some intent and this will understand the need to the lower gear ratios before shifting up. You can also use the button, but I found more engagement from using the shift function which quite well as the shifts seem faster than in the model.

Naturally, not all Peugeot 308 will want to drive cars with such In fact, most will be for the best possible compromise fuel consumption and performance, Peugeot offers in spades. All and petrol engines in the 308 range are rated as Euro 5 and as offer the best of both The 1.6-litre turbo with transmission will return a fuel consumption of just and emissions of 171g/km.

Those numbers are reduced if you go with the six-speed manual box and 153g/km).

If strong performance out of engines is one of the technologies that has perfected over the years, of its cars’ principle attributes is how go around corners and handle the both of which they do very well.

From the you turn in to your first in thePeugeot 308, you’ll the very essence of that phrase ‘good road-holding’. The isn’t overly sharp or but the car goes exactly where you it. Moreover, it feels utterly through the bends. That’s to the suspension tuning talents of engineers and the added benefit of an 25kg weight loss across the Peugeot 308

There’s also a nice and feel to the steering too, from … centre to that stiffens up appropriately at There’s not a huge amount of assistance for parking speeds with some Japanese and cars, but it’s certainly not

I’m not so supportive of Peugeot’s changeover to with low rolling resistance the superb Michelin Pilot 3 rubber that the previous 308 was shod with. It’s not they lack any grip on the on the contrary, there’s plenty of but there’s a decidedly dull from them over They’re just don’t quite the same degree of that you get from the standard, but green, variety of tyres.

Push the 308 hard and there’s no of stopping power from the 302mm front rotors. The pressure is reassuringly progressive and the responded well even repeated applications down very challenging downhill

As you would expect from a Euro NCAP car, 308 comes standard with a suite of active and passive kit, including six airbags and stability control. That’s to the use of high-strength steel in key areas in a rigid structure and what call a “triple force at the front, able to absorb a impact.

While it’s avant-garde, the latest Peugeot 308 is far more than the previous model on the front alone. Add to that ride and handling, plenty of and strong performance from its little turbocharged four, and got the perfect excuse for a French driver.
