Peugeot 308 SW estate revealed

New estate version of 308 will be lighter and more practical than old model

Peugeot has revealed the Peugeot 308 SW at the Geneva Motor Show, the estate model in the new 308 range.

In keeping with the first images released earlier this year, the SW version of the 308 appeared in Switzerland totally redesigned to match the new hatchback model. It also benefits from a similar reduction in weight, losing 140kg compared to the old 308 SW.

Peugeot is yet to release economy figures for the new SW but the weight reduction should allow for numbers close to the impressive 91.1mpg quoted as achievable for the hatchback. The weight loss should also make the car more enjoyable to drive, as well as more economical.

The 308 SW will be available with a range of new petrol and diesel engines for better performance and efficiency – Peugeot says a 1.6-litre BlueHDi diesel engine producing 120bhp will emit just 85g/km of CO2 and return 88.3mpg.

Boot space is obviously a high priority for estate buyers and the 660-litre capacity in the rear of the new 308 estate is set to be class-leading. Peugeot also promises increased practicality, with seats folding down perfectly flat in a single action.

As with the 308 hatchback, Peugeot’s i-Cockpit infotainment system will be fitted as standard in all but the entry-level Access models, allowing driver and passengers to control the heating, radio and other systems inside the car using a 9.7-inch touchscreen monitor.

There are no prices available for the 308 SW as yet but the new entry level 308 hatchback starts at £14,495, rising to a starting price of £20,995 for the top-of-the-range Feline model – it’s likely the estate versions of these models will cost a few hundred pounds more than the hatchback equivalents.

There were plently of other exciting cars unveiled at the show yesterday and you can read about them on our Geneva Motor Show round up page.
