TEST: Peugeot 308 – Lion with electricity & petrol – Test drives

Oct 25, 2021

October 24, 2021 PremiumThe new Peugeot 308 is the first with the brand’s modernized lion logo. The car is available as a plug-in hybrid, petrol and diesel. The combi version holds everything a new family with children may need. We run the versions that will sell the most in Sweden. WHAT IS NEW? Next year, Peugeot will come out with a completely new generation in the 308 series, but we have already had the opportunity to test drive it in the mountains around Cannes in the south of France. Most things are updated, including the logo. Like many other car manufacturers, Peugeot has made a two-dimensional logo that will fit better in digital contexts. The 308 is Peugeot’s most important model – it sells in huge volumes in its home country – and therefore you do not save on gunpowder. Peugeot knows that the car’s design is a crucial factor in its success and has invested heavily in finding the right appealing shapes. They also offer modernities such as digital driver display with 3D simulation, several assistance functions and wireless Apple CarPlay. The regular petrol and diesel models even have a dedicated button for Apple CarPlay. With the new 308, Peugeot has been given the opportunity to lower the air resistance and make two plug-in hybrid variants with 180 and 225 horsepower respectively. The driver environment feels modern and well-built. We like that Peugeot has retained some physical buttons and knobs. Unfortunately, the steering wheel rim risks obscuring the driver’s screen. In France, the 180 model is expected to become a bestseller because it ends up at the same price as the regular 130-horsepower petrol model after subsidies. In Sweden, general agent KW Bruun reckons that the 225-horsepower model sells best because the price difference will not be so great. It is mainly companies that are expected to buy the plug-in hybrids. In the private market, it is instead the usual petrol model with 130 horses that is likely to be the most popular. A high-torque diesel (130 hp / 300 Nm) is also included. We have driven the two plug-in hybrids and the petrol car. HOW ARE THEY DRIVING? We start at the gas station. The small 1.2-liter engine quickly turns out to be too small for a spacious mid-range station wagon. Even with only the driver and completely without load, there is no power. This engine is better suited for the shorter “Golf version”. 308 is first out with Peugeot’s new logo. Comfort, on the other hand, is a true pleasure. I would have liked to have driven this car far and long if it had not been for the engine. Too bad I did not have time to try the diesel. Quick change to the charging hybrids. Now there is the power I have lacked. The 180 feels reasonably fast and the 225 has a little extra flair at high revs if you are in a bush mood. Unfortunately, the comfort is not as good as in the petrol. The car is more bumpy than, for example, the Volkswagen Passat GTE. I ask the global press manager why? “We have partly compensated for the weight of the batteries, but also made the car a little sportier.” Sigh. Why not skip sports thinking? At least Peugeot should have made the 180 more comfortable. On the French mountain roads you have to be careful not to crash down the side of the road. The new 308 SW feels safe there. SHOULD I BUY ONE? As before, the 308 SW is a reasonably large car when a couple has their first child – therefore it sells best in the age category 31-35 years. The new 308 SW feels more modern than many of its competitors, it’s just a shame that the petrol engine is so small. With two plug-in hybrid alternatives, the 308 SW will be a hot candidate in the company car market.
