The 308 SW is redesigned to be sporty and spacious

The Peugeot 308 SW has made its world premiere at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, combining the design philosophy of the Peugeot 308 which has been awarded the European Car of the Year.

Peugeot designers have styled a spacious and dynamic estate car that has a length of 4,580mm and a height of 1,470mm. With this, the automaker says the vehicle provides ample volume, roominess, versatility, and practicality. The body of the 308 SW has clean lines and clutter-free designed space. Designers also incorporated the ‘Efficient Modular Platform’ (EMP2) that optimizes weight saving and dynamic efficiency. As a result, the Peugeot 308 SW is 140kg lighter than its predecessor. It also has emblematic full LED headlamps and taillamps.
