Peugeot already showed us its new 308 in March. Then it was only the hatchback, and now the SW or Break variant is also ready. It comes with the same eye-catching snout, but of course gets a separate, sharply drawn butt.
In any case, the ambitions are high, and the manufacturer would like to push it to the podium on the European chart for the break. Which SW has to approach or even surpass as the Octavia Combi and Golf Variant.
Compared to the previous model, the new Peugeot 308 SW is 6 cm longer and also 2 cm lower for a more elegant appearance. The wheelbase is still nearly identical, but it’s 5.5cm longer than the new hatchback’s. The bag looks very practical, including a three-part folding rear seat with easy control. When left upright, 608 liters of storage space is available (548 liters for the hybrid versions). The boot lid can be opened and closed electrically.
The chassis with the EMP2 platform and mechanics is already known from the hatchback, so you will also be able to choose from a few classic (110 to 130 hp) and hybrid petrol and diesel engines for the Peugeot 308 SW, which is expected in showrooms only at the beginning of 2022. 180 and 225 hp). There’s no mention of the Hybrid4 all-wheel drive variant, nor is it a more powerful PSE version. But they are clear.
