Peugeot are attempting a complete rejuvenation of their product range in a bid to boost sales during tough times. Of late Peugeot has struggled to compete in the hatchback market that it once dominated, however, new cars such as the 208 claim to hark back to the good old days where the French company ruled the roost. The all-new Peugeot 308 aims to take on key rivals such as the VW Golf and Ford Focus.
To make its official debut at the Frankfurt motor show this year, the 308 is a brand new car from the ground up. Swapping bland architecture for a more provocative stance, the bold outline of this new hatchback is most welcome. The new 308 weighs 140KG less than its predecessor making for a keener handling package, and more involving machine overall. Emissions are also said to be as low as 85g/km. The interior has been redesigned and reflects a more premium area for passengers to occupy.
More details are to be released nearer to the motor show.
