2014 Peugeot 308 SW Review, Price and Release – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Peugeot 308 SW Redesign. 2014 Peugeot 308 SW is one brand new car from Peugeot that will be release in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Peugeot 308 SW.
Peugeot’s engineers and designers have conceived and designed a grand dynamic estate car, with a low, classy and sporty allure. Taking the Peugeot i-Cockpit from the hatchback version, the new Peugeot 308 SW presents an innovative interior, resolutely modern and refined. Benefitting from the high flexibility of the new EMP2 platform, the new Peugeot 308 SW makes the most of its generous dimensions to provide a level of interior spaciousness and boot volume among the best in the segment. The boot also benefits from exemplary functionality and modularity.
Virtuous design (reduced weight, the use of innovative materials) and the use of new economical and efficient engines allows the Peugeot 308 SW to claim benchmark fuel consumption and emissions figures while also delivering unprecedented driving enjoyment for an estate car. The extensive range of equipment and high level of quality place the new Peugeot 308 SW among the best in its segment, supporting the ambitions for the brand and its move up-market.
The 308 SW will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, before a spring 2014 release date. A starting price hasn’t been announced but expect the 308 SW to kick off at around £16,000.
The profile of the Peugeot 308 SW is fluid and slender. Benefiting from the extended wheelbase (+11 cm compared to the hatchback) and rear overhang (+22 cm compared to the hatchback), the new Peugeot 308 SW clearly takes its place among the most dynamic and balanced estates in the segment.
The fluid profile is highlighted by a superb chrome window finisher surrounding the entire lateral glazed area. For the large rear quarter light, this finisher is in one piece and with varying crosssection. This technical and stylistic feat is usually found only on some vehicles from the segments above and underlines the refined dynamism in its profile.
Another important aspect, the absence of a quarter light in the rear doors emphasises and improves the appearance of the lateral glazed area.
The drop in the roof line, the angle formed at the back with the rear screen strengthens further the dynamism of the profile. Finally, the perfect integration of the aluminium longitudinal roof bars, discrete and elegant, completed the positioning of the new Peugeot 308 SW in the very exclusive world of exceptional estate cars.
The rear end, wide and slender, contributes towards the sporty impression of the new Peugeot 308 SW. The rear lamps, flowing round from the sides as on the hatchback, adopt an unusual and very technological C-form lighting signature through the use of 42 opalescent LEDs. With three more LEDs in each lamp unit for the brake lamp function, there are no less than 48 LEDs in the rear lamps. This signature, the shape of which enhances the vehicle’s posture, recalls those on the 508 SW and 508 RXH, placing the new Peugeot 308 SW among the brand’s family of great estate cars.
The drop in the roof line, the handling of the rear spoiler, the perfect integration of the 3rd brake lamp, taken from the 508 SW, the flush roof bars as far apart as possible, all strengthen the impression of width on the new Peugeot 308 SW.
As with the hatchback, Peugeot’s designers wanted to give preference to simplicity, balance and fluidity in the style. For the new Peugeot 308 SW, no pointless features, no ostentatious aggressiveness but rather an importance placed on quality in the way that materials and finishers are handled.
The front end of the new Peugeot 308 SW shares its character with the hatchback. So there is a grille framed in chrome and headlamps handled with great finesse to retain the brand’s expressive and emblematic feline look. The Full LED technology (31 LEDs per headlamp), fitted as standard on the upper trim levels, provides a technological and distinctive lighting signature.
The interior design of the new Peugeot 308 SW is astonishingly pure, modern and technological.
It is based on an innovative concept for the instruments and controls: the Peugeot i-Cockpit. It is made up of four elements : a compact steering wheel for intense dynamic sensations, a head-up instrument panel so that information can be read without taking your eyes off the road, an enhancing tall centre console and a large 9.7″ touch screen for an intuitive drive.
The quality of materials, the textiles used, the rigour of assembly and construction, have all been defined to place the new Peugeot 308 SW in the premium world. So the dashboard is fully padded, the steering wheel is trimmed with full grain leather from the 2nd trim level and the gloss black and satin chrome inserts are found throughout the cabin in areas used by the customer.
The near absence of buttons combined with the use of high quality materials, brings a purity unprecedented in the market.
Finally, the generous glazed areas and the huge 1.69 m2 glass sunroof bathe the Peugeot 308 SW’s cabin in light. The integration of the longitudinal roof bars positioned over the body sides allows this to be optimised. This sunroof can be fully covered with its electric blind.
BlueHDi is the name given to the brand’s Euro 6 Diesel engines. Exclusively associating SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and a particulate filter with additive for the Euro 6 Diesel emissions, the BlueHDi technology allows NOx emissions to be drastically reduced by up to 90% and CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to be optimised, while still eliminating 99.9 % of particulates.
Three BlueHDi engines will be available at launch. The BlueHDi 1.6 litre 100 (coupled to a manual 5-speed gearbox) and the BlueHDi 1.6 litre 120 (with six-speed manual gearbox) are topped off in the range by the BlueHDi 2.0 litre 150, available with six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox.
Type-approved with CO2 emissions of 85g/km, the BlueHDi 1.6 litre 120 is a real technological advance, allowing the virtuous alliance of performance and low fuel consumption. With 120 hp, and maximum torque of 300 Nm from 1750 rpm, this very low fuel consumption version is a true “core of the range” version with remarkable driveability. Multi-role and efficient, it has no special restriction on its towing ability.
The new BlueHDi 2.0 litre 150 engine associates high performance with particularly well contained emissions. With a maximum torque of 370 Nm at 2000 rpm and great flexibility in use, on the new Peugeot 308 SW with a six-speed manual gearbox, it returns CO2 emissions from 99g/km.
This BlueHDi 2.0 litre 150 engine can also be associated with a 3rd generation AISIN six-speed automatic gearbox. This new automatic gearbox uses Quickshift technology, which combines faster gear changes with smoothness and driving pleasure of the highest level. Its design results in a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions. The difference in emissions compared to manual gearbox is brought down to 5g/km (for a given tyre fitment) making this version extremely well placed in terms of driving pleasure and fuel consumption.
