Since its launch in September 2007, more than 900,000 308 models have been sold worldwide. The New 308 integrates all the latest Peugeot styling elements already seen on the 508 and the SR1 Concept Car. The new 308 will be available in three body styles; Hatchback, CC (convertible) and SW (wagon), and four trim levels. A range topping hatchback and CC THP 200 model will also be available in a single trim level.

A new look at the front with the latest LED headlamps and running lights gives the New Peugeot 308 a modern look. All the dynamic strengths of the original 308 have been retained and strengthened with the introduction of more efficient engines and Peugeot's innovative micro-hybrid e-HDi Stop & Start technology.

The Stop & Start technology is the latest generation and combined with Peugeot's class leading 1.6 liter HDi FAP 112 diesel engine reduces CO2emissions to 98g/km. This engine option will also be available with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed electronically controlled manual gearbox (EGC). This will give the New Peugeot 308 the lowest emissions in its segment.

All models feature air conditioning, ESP (Electronic Stability Program), ABS, EBFD, EBA, front and rear electric windows with child security, remote control central door locking with deadlocks and six Smart safety airbags.

The New Peugeot 308 will be launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and go on sale in the Spring.
