Peugeot has unveiled the all-new, brand spanking new 308 hatchback, the car that’s meant to attract buyers away from the likes of Golf, Focus and Auris. New Peugeot 308 has been designed from the ground up in order to be modern, sassy, sexy, but while being masculine at the same time.
From the look of things, Peugeot has gone for a more Germanic / Bauhaus style of design, with a minimalistic line that runs flat from the bonnet, all the way to the rear end via the sides, where it meets other sweepers.
The car is 4.25 metres long and 1.46m high. On average the new 308 is 140kg lighter than its predecessor. Without revealing any engine details, Peugeot claims there’s a version in the range that emits 85 g/km.
Peugeot will release full details of the new 308 shortly before and during the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. We also expect it will also be exhibited at the 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) in October.
