FRENCH car maker Peugeot has today revealed its latest addition to the 308 model range, with the launch of the 308 SW, a sports wagon variant with a racy profile and sophisticated rear end.
Developed with four key themes in mind – design, efficiency, technology and modularity – the Peugeot 308 SW is positioned to cater for customers who seek style, driving pleasure and technology, without compromising on volume and spaciousness.
“We are thrilled to confirm we will be welcoming the all-new Peugeot 308 SW to Australia in 2022,” Peugeot Australia GM Kate Gillis said.
“Following the Australian launch of the new generation Peugeot 308 in Q1, we will expand the 308 range with the introduction of the Peugeot 308 SW later in 2022.”
Local specifications, pricing and final details are still yet to be determined, and will be revealed closer to an Australian market launch, but the global details confirm the new variant will be a roomy 4.64-metres in length, and sport an automatic tailgate.
A myriad of storage areas entirely dedicated to well-being and practicality will also feature, with a large central console providing space for the driver and front passenger’s everyday items.
Second row seats will split 40/20/40 and can be folded from the boot, and actual load volume will consist of a 608-litre boot with seats up, and 1634-litres with the seats fully folded.
Featuring innovative technology, the new 308 SW comes with an improved Peugeot i-Cockpit, which sports a new compact steering wheel equipped with integrated controls and which can be heated.
There’s also a 3-dimensional digital headset at eye level, with a 10-inch digital display and similarly sized high-definition central touchscreen with the new Peugeot i-Connect Advanced software in place.
New i-toggles replace the physical climate control panel. Each i-toggle button is fully configurable and is a shortcut to a specific function on the central screen. There will be four USB C sockets, wireless mirroring and dual Bluetooth connectivity as well.
The new Peugeot 308 SW has the latest generation of semi-autonomous driving aids, for even greater safety too, with the Drive Assist 2.0 pack, which consists of adaptive cruise control with Stop and Go, and lane departure warning.
It also adds three new features available on dual carriageways; semi-automatic lane change, early speed recommendation and curve speed adaptation.
Globally, the new Peugeot 308 SW will be available in a variety of engine options, including two rechargeable hybrids. Three petrol and two diesel variants will also be offered.
