PEUGEOT has opened reservations for the new 308 SW, an even more practical and versatile variant of the new 308. Featuring a bold new design and class-leading safety features, the new 308 SW is available for the first time with efficient plug-in hybrid technology alongside advanced petrol and diesel engines. With reservations now open, the new 308 SW will arrive in showrooms in early 2022.

The new 308 SW adds a new dimension of practicality and style to the compact estate segment. For the first time ever, the new 308 SW is available with plug-in hybrid technology alongside efficient petrol and diesel engines, allowing buyers to choose the powertrain that best suits their needs.

From launch, customers have a choice between two plug-in hybrid powertrains – a HYBRID 180 e-EAT8 or the more powerful, HYBRID 225 e-EAT8, with both vehicles powered by a 12.4kWh electric battery and a 1.6-litre petrol engine. Both models are capable of up to 39 miles in electric mode under WLTP testing. With CO2 emissions from 25g/km, the 308 SW HYBRID models are also eligible for a Benefit-in-Kind rate of just 11%, making them ideal for fleet and business users.

Both plug-in hybrid variants come standard with a 3.7kW on-board charger, with buyers able to add a faster 7.4kW as an option. A full charge with the standard 3.7kW cable takes 3 hours and 55 minutes, decreasing to 1 hour and 55 minutes when using the faster 7.4kW charger.

From launch, the new 308 SW will also be available with PEUGEOT’s advanced petrol and diesel engines. Buyers have a choice between a 1.2-litre PureTech 130 petrol engine and a 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel engine. All models come standard with PEUGEOT’s smooth shifting eight-speed EAT8 automatic transmission with Stop & Start technology.

Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT UK, said: “The new 308 SW is the latest PEUGEOT model to give buyers the ability to choose the powertrain that best suits them. By 2025, our entire model line-up will feature an electrified variant. With a practical and bold design, as well a class-leading levels of technology, the new 308 SW offers buyers a unique and standout proposition in the compact estate segment.”

Sharp and practical design
The new 308 SW adds a new level of style and practicality to the competitive compact estate segment. The sloping roof, similar to the new 308, has been designed to maximise internal space for passengers and load items, while the pronounced skirts and sleek lines give the 308 SW an aggressive stand. The new 308 SW comes standard with Eco LED headlights, with GT and GT Premium models featuring Matrix LED lights for improved visibility and safety.

Compared to the new 308, the new 308 SW comes with a 57mm longer wheelbase and a 212mm longer rear overhang for improved space and boot volume. Load volume capacity is 608-litres, extending to 1,634 with the rear seats folded.  A smart electric tailgate with foot sensor and pedestrian detection adds convenience and peace of mind and is standard on GT Premium.

The new 308 SW features as standard a three-part rear seat configuration with a 40/20/40 split, with each rear seat able to fold individually to improve versatility. Objects up to 1.85m can be carried inside the new 308 SW.

Inside, all models feature PEUGEOT’s innovative i-Cockpit® interior with a new multifunction compact steering wheel and a 10-inch HD capacitive colour touchscreen. The interior contains PEUGEOT’s trademark ‘Piano Key’ controls alongside the new customisable i-Toggles® (from Allure trim onwards), allowing for easy access to key functions.

Plug-in hybrid models come with Electric, Hybrid and Sport driving modes, while petrol and diesel drivers can choose between Eco, Normal and Sport modes via the drive mode selector.

The new 308 SW is available with the following safety and driver assistance features as standard:

  • Programmable cruise control and speed limiter
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Speed limit & traffic sign recognition and recommendation
  • Driver attention warning
  • Intelligent Speed Adaptation
  • Active Safety Brake with pedestrian and cyclist detection
  • AVAS: Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (PHEV models only)

Other new technologies include:

  • 360° surround view parking assistance with four cameras (front, rear and both sides)
  • Semi-automatic lane change – The driver suggests a lane change manoeuver by setting the direction indicators. The system performs a semi-automatic lane change manoeuver if appropriate conditions are met and confirmed by the driver
  • Anticipated speed recommendation – the system suggests to the driver that they adapt their speed (acceleration or deceleration) according to the speed limit signs
  • Curve speed adaptation – at speeds of up to 112mph (where legal) the set-up optimises the car’s speed according to the severity of the bend
