Peugeot 308 SW estate prices announced
Prices and specs for the new Peugeot 308 estate have been announced
The Peugeot 308 SW estate will be priced from £16,845 when it goes on sale at the start of next month. From launch, customers can pick from a choice of four petrol and five diesel engines, as well as four levels of specification.
The range starts with the basic Access models, but even these get bright LED daytime running lights, LED rear lights, air-conditioning, cruise control and remote central locking. Customers can choose between a 1.2-litre petrol and two 1.6-litre diesels, with 92bhp and 115bhp. Both diesels qualify for free road tax, while the petrol model costs £20 to tax annually.
Active models, which start from £18,295, add kit like sat-nav, automatic lights, rear parking sensors, climate control and 16-inch alloy wheels. They get the same engines as the basic models, while also offering a more powerful 130bhp petrol (109g/km), as well as 120bhp (85g/km) and 150bhp (99g/km) diesels.
Starting from £19,745, the Allure’s kit expands on the Active’s equipment list with full LED headlights and a reversing camera, but gets the same engines. Buyers can, however, choose to combine a diesel engine with Peugeot’s new six-speed automatic gearbox.
At the top of the range is Feline specification. Opting for it gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, leather interior, keyless go, active cruise control (which can match the speed of the car in front, while keeping a safe distance from it), and autonomous emergency braking. Feline trim is priced from £22,095 for the 1.2-litre 130bhp petrol fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox.
All Peugeot 308 SWs get a huge 610-litre boot, which beats rivals such as the Volkswagen Golf (605 litres) and the Ford Focus (476 litres), while being only marginally behind the class-best Honda Civic Tourer. That car boasts 624 litres of load-lugging capacity.
