Peugeot 308 design features

PEUGEOT 308 is a truly distinct offering with a striking new design that optimises interior space while asserting the car’s dynamism and identity.

It is also the first car in PEUGEOT’S broad range to bear the company’s new coat of arms which is mounted proudly in the centre of the grille. Positioned to highlight a grille pattern converging towards it, it also announces the car’s arrival.

New PEUGEOT 308 also introduces the latest PEUGEOT i-Cockpit™ with an advanced infotainment system that is intuitive, connected and resolutely modern.

Efficiency and high performance down to the smallest aerodynamic detail are key elements of the new PEUGEOT 308 which gives Australian buyers a choice between internal combustion and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

Ahead of the arrival to the Australian market, PEUGEOT Australia Managing Director, Kate Gillis, commented: “It is with great excitement that we can today open pre-orders for the 308. Our latest arrival brings a dynamic and stylish design, with the local model range carefully selected to provide consumers with a strong line-up.”

“We are confident that the new PEUGEOT 308 has a distinct offering for the local market that will appeal across multiple premium segments due to the different body styles on offer as well as the compelling choice of powertrains, both internal combustion and electrified.”

“Looking forward to 2023, we are particularly excited that the PEUGEOT 308 GT Sport Hatch Plug-In Hybrid will allow us to continue our electrification journey and enter into the electrified small car segment for the first time in Australia.”
