Peugeot 308 Sw 2020 Release

The Peugeot 308 Sw 2020 continues to offer top safety scores, remarkable space inside, and all-round versatility; it’s still one of the best small SUVs, and a good value for money.

As you may be aware, anything ending with an “8” is supposed to be more premium. So what’s Peugeot’s idea of a really good 5-door hatchback? The latest report from French magazine Caradisiac spills the beans.

Peugeot 308 Sw 2020 History

According to them, the 308 replacement will debut in 2020, roughly seven years after the current generation came out. It will ride on a modified version of the modular EMP2 platform, which underpins the 3008 crossover and 508 sedan and wagon.

The styling is said to be influenced by the latter, with narrow LED headlights that have a tail-like signature at the bottom, a lot like the Renault Megane. Inside, Peugeot will continue to use a small steering wheel, and a digital instrument display placed high on the dash.

Pricing is expected to start at around €21,000. It will be interesting to see how much tech Peugeot can offer for the money and how the 308 will compete with the highly anticipated 8th generation of the Golf, which is still Europe’s most popular car.

Thanks to a revised platform, the car should be a little lighter than before, a few centimeters will also be added to the body, freeing up precious legroom. The choice of powertrains will be similar to what’s already going on, namely a 1.2-liter turbo gasoline motor and a 1.5-liter diesel forming the bulk of the range.

However, two performance models are planned, and both will be electrified. The 308 GT will boast around 220 HP and just one electric motor helping to power the front wheels.

As for the 308 GTI, this hot hatch will take on the Civic Type R with a funky plug-in hybrid setup. Two e-motors, one for each axle, will help the 1.6-liter turbo to deliver a combined 300 HP. It will even have a pure-EV driving mode. The structure sounds suspiciously similar to plug-in versions of the 3008 and DS7 Crossback.

The best value in Peugeot 308 Sw 2020 is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
