The Peugeot 308 facelift — new engines and electronic systems

The French hatchback has been updated. There are new engines, gearbox and a modern electronic system. Would it increase the position of the model in Russia?

Reason: restyling of the hatchback Peugeot 308.

Place of action: Germany.

Impressions: 308-y want to watch. In my opinion, this is the most beautiful car in the Golf class.

In Europe, the hatchback successfully competes with the Golf of the seventh generation. In some markets, say, in France and Italy, “French” ahead of sales of “German”.

Restyling not strongly affected the appearance of the 308. The focus of the Peugeot was paid to the electronics and power unit. The car has a system of automatic braking and traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring. Warn electronics and the unexpected intersection of the lines.

In the line of power units appeared downsizing engine working volume of 1.2 liters in two versions forces: with a capacity of 110 and 130 horsepower. It works in tandem with 6-speed automatic EAT6, 6-speed manual transmission.

Gamma diesel is still wide. The most interesting of the engines on heavy fuel — a 2.0-liter, 180 horses, who made friends with the new 8-speed automatic from Aisin EAT8. While such a machine is available only in pair with this engine.

At low revs the diesel pulls perfectly. When you press the Sport button the devices are colored red, the wheel is filled with stress, changing the exhaust sound. Suspension is tuned perfectly. The car is registers the arc of rotation. I liked the smoothness. Now I understand why the Europeans are buying 308.

As for Russia, we will remain the same 1.6-liter engine capacity of 135 and 150 horsepower. Transmission 6-speed automatic EAT6. We have updated 308 will appear in the autumn.

The hot version of the hatchback — 308 GTi. To us it’s done the way ordered.The hot version of the hatchback — 308 GTi. To us it’s done the way ordered.

Perhaps in the future, the line model will complement some of the new modifications, but so far the French have not disclosed details. It is possible that “vosmiletku” make friends with the engine 1.6. It would be nice!..

Prospects: they depend on the price that we will know closer to the fall. In Europe the price tag starts from 18 700 Euro. Dorestaylingovyh car that is sold in Russia now, it is worth 1 489 000 rubles. For the hatchback, based on the mass market, it is very expensive.

Rating: beautiful and well-balanced car with well-tuned suspension. In Europe he has all the chances of success in Russia all depends on the price. And she is unlikely to be available. It is clear now. So, 308 is destined to remain a niche product. The mass buyer is likely to prefer a Korean car than a stylish, but expensive “French”.
