Counter, launched by 2018-2019 Peugeot in the 30-ies of the last century, stopped.
301, 302, 303 … 308 and 308 then again!
Models with the number 309 will be gone.
In the future, classify machines with a lion on the bonnet decided as follows: the first figure – a car class (corresponds to the triple-class golf), then – no alternative zero and after him – always eight.
In an extreme case – the unit, when it comes to “global” model, designed for the countries of the third and all subsequent worlds.
So, we – again, 308th … It is the same 308-I, which is shown at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
New 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 model year came to Russia with a Hollywood scale: French hatchbacks such quality have not yet had.
The fact that the model in the new generation has become fundamentally different, first of all representatives of the brand said at the presentation of the model in the launch day sales.
And it eloquently indicates the price tag, which was almost unseemly for the French brand.
The development of a new generation of the hatchback 2018-2019 Peugeot started back in – just as the year in which first debuted 308th.
Even then, it was decided to move away from inflated hatchbacks: no more experiments with a design like alyapistoy optics or chubby bumpers.
The new 2018-2019 Peugeot sports a stylish headlamps, hood and strict relief vyshtampovki straight across the body.
The new strategy of PSA 2018-2019 Peugeot Citroen means that already from this year 2018-2019 Peugeot ranks polupremialnogo brand and Citroen is a manufacturer of budget models.
With the predecessor of the machine have in common only the name.
308 is built on the latest platform EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform 2).
This is a new modular platform group PSA is designed to create compact, front- or all-wheel drive cars.
It is said that its development has been spent over 630 million euros.
Due to the variable length of the wheelbase and the height of the installation of seats and two variants of the rear suspension design (either fully independent twist beam) at its base can be built not only a model of the C-Class, but also compact crossovers.
And if necessary – and light commercial vehicles.
In the near future, based on this platform are planning to do more than half of the models produced by the concern, and they will be carried out not only in France but also in our Kaluga, 2018-2019 Peugeot and even on Chinese factories.
The first car built on the basis of EMP2, – this is the Citroen Picasso is the C4 , which debuted last year.
New 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 – the second.
The design of the 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 used steel, aluminum and composite materials.
Due to the weight of light alloys model has been reduced by 70 kilograms.
Yet just as the engineers easier finishing materials.
In total, the car lost 140 kilograms at once – it’s even more than saved the Volkswagen , moving Golf on the MQB.
In March 2014 the 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 was the winner of the prestigious European competition Car of the Year ( «European Car of the Year”).
Hatchback scored 307 points after the vote, 58 members of the jury, leaving in second place BMW i3 with 223 points and the Tesla Model S with 216 points in the third.
The new 308 – the fourth model in the history of 2018-2019 Peugeot, which has become the winner.
Previously, the award received 2018-2019 Peugeot 307 in, 405 th in 1988 and 504 th in 1969.
Hatchback, which began to look calmer predecessor, looks very harmonious, it can be safely written handsome.
The new “French” lost identity?
Maybe with all this premium husk 2014 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 has become less recognizable on the road.
But now its interior can not be confused with any other vehicle.
The arrangement is called i-Cockpit, and she has managed to get the award for the best interior at the recent Paris Motor Show.
Interior design, no doubt, very good.
Ergonomics also did not find fault.
Questions cause except “pezhovsky” brand remote control “music” to the left under the steering wheel.
But it is something just migrated here from the previous model.
And most importantly, what to look for, being behind the wheel of 308 th, is the quality of finish and attention to detail of its creators.
The most recognizable feature of the interior – the dashboard, which is located almost at the windshield.
The same solution we have seen in the new 208 and 2008 .
For a time, to the arrangement, of course, will have to get used to.
Especially, in a very small rudder, and spaced at the corners “tidy” scales.
By and large, i-Cockpit can easily replace the head-up display: from the road almost distracted.
Earlier 2018-2019 Peugeot tried to stuff the central panel of the maximum number of buttons, the new 308 are reversed.
Organs control is no more than the “classics”: volume control, including alarm and heated rear window.
All other controls are displayed on the 9.7-inch screen with touch controls.
The system is very informative, but not as fast as we would like.
In addition, the bright sun the screen fades hopeless and adjust the settings, such as climate control becomes almost impossible.
But the system in a few clicks, you can connect to the application Link My 2018-2019 Peugeot, set on a tablet or mobile phone.
On the screen of the gadget can be displayed remotely navigation tips, statistics on the route, fuel consumption and information on the MOT.
According to Xavier 2018-2019 Peugeot, the company’s director of product 2018-2019 Peugeot: «Thanks to the popular models of 3008 , 208 and 2008 of our new concept of construction of the driver’s seat, instruments and controls became recognizable.
Now this style that we call i-Cockpit, – company card.
A new 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 continues to develop this concept … ”
New 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 2014 has something to show to all the representatives of the premium segment, where he is so eager to “Frenchman”.
For example, no one in the class do not have a quality leather as the novelty.
Places in the back seat was not less, but 308 became shorter.
Useful volume of the luggage compartment is quite impressive 470 liters.
In most cases this is sufficient, but the folded seat backs can obtain another 400 liters.
And if the ship “under the roof” that will fit more than 1300 liters.
The novelty is equipped with high trim options, which no one in the C-class.
For example, an adaptive cruise control, which is capable of ottormazhivatsya before obstacles and to gain self-given speed.
Even the new 308 can be equipped with a panoramic roof, rearview camera, keyless entry system in the salon and the socket at 220 volts.
And that’s not to mention the fully LED optics, which is already available in the basic version.
And, it would seem, here it is, the future Russian bestseller: the rich equipment, stylish looks, powerful engine and reliable “automatic”, the French assembly.
But intervened fall of the ruble.
The fact that all 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 2014 are available on our market in France, so the cost of the model is tied to the exchange rate.
Two months ago, 2018-2019 Peugeot was planning to sell 308 new hatchback for the price of 779 thousand. Rubles, but due to the continued growth of the Russian office of the euro was forced to raise the price tag on the 20 th. Rubles.
Versions with the turbo engine are much more expensive – from 989 thousand rubles.
Thus, for the most equipped 308 will have to pay about 1.3 million rubles.
It remains only to take it for granted that 2018-2019 Peugeot – it is now the premium.
But for now the box office blockbuster that is open to question.
The choice of engines for the 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 hatchback 2014 in our small market – only two units.
The basic version of the machine is equipped with a time-tested 1.6-liter aspirated EC5 (115 horsepower).
This motor is the sign for a number of PSA models and different ruggedness and ease of maintenance.
“Mechanics” of operating units in a pair only.
Another hatchback 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 2014 is available with a turbo engine EP6F capacity of 150 horsepower.
The engine is aggregated with 6-speed automatic transmission Aisin.
Box has undergone substantial refinement: modified transmission line, reduced friction due to a heat treatment of gears and filled less viscous oil.
The owner of 308 of these improvements can hardly notice, but they are likely to affect the site durability.
In combined cycle turbo engine consumes about 8 liters per “hundred” – the average in the class.
In France, by the way, already powertrain for five.
Two diesel and three petrol.
In the dynamics of the new 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 hatchback 2014 with the top engine outperforms its predecessor just half a second.
But it was rather due to a better drag coefficient and lower curb weight.
However, to complain of a combination of the automatic transmission and turbo is not necessary: the power supply at a hatchback 308th second one!
With a set of wheel speed poured weight, motor soundly boomed and even torsion beam once in their own adapted to the aggressive driving style.
No doubt, the French chassis failed.
However, this is not surprising – they knew how to make the suspension always.
At cruising speed without fuss 2018-2019 Peugeot can dramatically reconstructed, avoiding banks, ottormazhivatsya intensively and did not give any reason to think that things can suddenly go wrong.
Still stylish 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 2014 measured more suitable ride.
And yet, as far as I remember, they are always saved on the sound insulation … Motor hear the road under the wheels audible.
Established music, fortunately, is also heard.
She, by the way, is not just any: Denon reshetochki written on the door speaker.
However, such loudspeakers placed only on expensive version of 308 th.
The panoramic roof and a powerful motor.
2018-2019 Peugeot representatives, though openly go on about the premium news, but so far to put the car on a par with the Mercedes-Benz A-the Class , the BMW 1-Series and Audi A3 are in no hurry.
First of all, Russia to compete in the new product will have a hatchback with the Mazda3 .
