Market and customers

The new PEUGEOT 308 SW is part of the C segment of real estate, a market where PEUGEOT has enjoyed a lot of success over the years. Despite being directly challenged by SUVs, the segment has remained flat since 2010, demand in Europe remains strong and sales are forecast to be stable in the coming years.

The customer base who buys real estate cars is the youngest and most dynamic in the C segment and is very attached to this silhouette. Represented by active couples, with or without children, who use their vehicles intensively (they are the biggest drivers of the segment). They are very demanding and have a lot of expectations, such as style, ride and technology, without compromising on volume and roominess.

It is in this context that PEUGEOT 308 SW can meet all needs and customer groups (70% professional and 30% private) and is ready to acquire new customers. The new PEUGEOT 308 SW is positioned at the forefront with a concept based on the following key themes: design, efficiency, technology and modularity.


The challenge for the new PEUGEOT 308 SW in terms of styling is to provide character and desire, while also providing excellent load mass. As with the saloon, the shape of the structure has been optimized to design a very sloping roof and increase the area of ​​material available to shape the rear without affecting the interior space.

The new PEUGEOT 308 SW is a car with a strong personality that embodies the concept of style at the service of function. It is designed to draw and draw attention to an object whose primary goals are load, onboard space and practicality. The wheelbase is 55mm longer than the saloon version, adding to the slim profile and rear space.

As a result, the rear end of the new PEUGEOT 308 SW has the characteristic shape of the new PEUGEOT 308's side theme, sculpted in depth, creating a pronounced light intake that presses the vehicle into the ground, which is key to its posture.

The design of the side windows, which fall faster than the roof, creates a change in material (thicker body color), giving the new PEUGEOT 308 SW a particularly dynamic silhouette in its segment.

The rear end features the saloon's ultra-thin full LED lights, but without the black band linking them at the rear, the new PEUGEOT 308 SW is instead looking to increase the body count, especially on the rear hatch. , to reflect its extra volume and draw the eye to the extra space.

Like the saloon, the rear end is designed to optimize airflow for aerodynamic performance. The skirt is particularly impressive, as it acts as an extension of the lower part of the sidewalls like an aerodynamic deflector by disrupting the airflow coming from the doors.

At the front end, the new PEUGEOT 308 SW carries the new PEUGEOT brand emblem on the grille completely dedicated to it. Its presence is reinforced by the pattern of the grille gradually converging towards it.

A design and technological development, the radar for driver aids disappears behind the top of the car (radome technology uses indium compatible with radar waves), giving it a proud spot on the grille. heat. The number plate has been moved to the bottom of the front end.

The front headlights use LED technology from the first version. The headlights are sophisticated and sharp to contribute to the dynamism and identity of this new PEUGEOT 308 SW. They are elongated by fang-shaped daytime running lights on the front bumper. This light signature fits perfectly with the current PEUGEOT style, recognizable day and night.

In GT/GT Pack levels, the Full LED headlights become even thinner and become PEUGEOT Matrix LED Technology, providing greater efficiency and safety in everyday driving.

At the rear, the lights adopt fully LED technology that displays 3 swipes for a modern, brand-specific light signature.
