The Peugeot 308 boasts several technological innovations. Dedicated to comfort and assistance for the driver, these innovations enhance every moment on board.
The Peugeot 308 features exciting new technology, including BlueHDi, the name given to the Euro 6 diesel engines. Thanks to the exclusive combination of a SCR and FAP system, the BlueHDi technology drastically reduces (by more than 90%) the NOx emissions, curbs CO2 emissions, and virtually eliminates particulates (99.9 %).
New automatic 6-speed transmission EAT6 (Efficient Automatic Transmission 6) with Quickshift technology changes gears faster and more smoothly for superior driveability.
Designed to drastically reduce CO2 emissions, this version is ideally positioned from both consumer and comfort standpoints, with the emissions gap between manual gearbox and automatic transmission now reduced to 5 g/km (iso mounted tires).
By replacing the electro-hydraulic variable assist steering with electric power steering, the Peugeot 308 further reduces CO2 emissions.
Another advantage is that the electric power steering enables excellent handling for inner-city maneuvers.
The Hill Assist function, which facilitates reignition and hill manoeuvres, is standard equipment for the Allure version of the Peugeot 308. This unique technology immobilises the vehicle for a short period (about 2 seconds), allowing the driver to move from the brake to the accelerator.
An electric parking brake, which is activated automatically when the engine stops and deactivated when the engine restarts, is standard equipment for the Allure.
Thanks to its compactness, the Peugeot 308 is lighter. With dimension savings of 47 mm (height), 23 mm (length) and 10 mm (width), it is lighter than its predecessor. Laser welding also helps to reduce the weight. Finally, 70 kg is saved thanks to the use of the Group's all-new EMP2 platform.
The equipment is designed to help reduce overall vehicle weight. The new running gear is much lighter thanks to a hollow anti-roll bar and the use of aluminium components.
Even the braking system, designed in keeping with the reduced weight of the vehicle, helps to reduce the weight of the car.
Forward-thinking design pushes performance further
From the drawing-board, the Peugeot 308 was intended to combine environmental performance with a superior driving experience. The weight of the Peugeot 308 has been significantly reduced, to achieve top performances in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, while ensuring superior driveability. To mass-reduce by 140 kg compared with the previous version of the 308, unnecessary weight has been cast off at all levels. The vehicle is more compact, it's aerodynamic and both materials and equipment are lightweight.
An aerodynamic silhouette, the use of innovative lightweight materials and electric power steering combine to reduce CO2 emissions with versions from 82 g/km of CO2.
