Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Peugeot 308

After it was revealed online back in May, the new Peugeot 308 compact model makes a high profile public debut at the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.

Produced on the newly developed PSA platform called EMP2, the Peugeot 308 is now moved upscale on the internal sheet of the French automaker, and on its international sales faith hang many of the company’s hopes for a return to profit.

The new 308 is 4.25 meters long and 1.46 meters tall, making it slightly shorter and lower compared to its predecessor. We have a new design language that inherits some elements from the 208 and inside the available room has grown, along with the cargo space, bumped to 470 liters.

Also taken from the 208 we have the “i-cockpit” philosophy with a similar steering wheel/heads-up instrument cluster, and there’s also a tall center console boasting a large 9.7-inch touchscreen, which replaces a great number of the conventional buttons.

The engine range begins with a 1.2 VTi engine producing 82 hp (60 kW), followed by a 1.6 HDi FAP developing 92 hp (70 kW). Power hungry users can go for the 1.6 THP rated at 125 hp (92 kW) or the eco conscious for the 1.6 e-HDi FAP, generating 115 hp (85 kW). The most powerfull engine in the line-up is the 1.6 THP 155 hp (114 kW).
