|   Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Car making fundamentals have changed over the years and we can now clearly see that they are not what they used to be. Everything from designing to manufacturing to actual sales has changed and this has caused major upgrades across the globe. Most of us have welcomed this change and a few popular vehicles to emerge out of this technological advancement include Volkswagen's Golf, Ford's Focus, Seat's Leon and Vauxhall's Astra.

Peugeot however is well aware of its duties in the UK as sales figures need to be high in this region if they want to expand to different quarters of the globe.
Peugeot is a trusted name in Europe although it needs more than a reputation to spread out into other global markets. The company has introduced some very potent models to its C Segment and these are expected to pave the way for its foray into other developing and developed markets.

Peugeot is currently working on three different models of its 306 although they are expected to feature the 308 name plate. These vehicles are not just the product of modern innovation they have modern engineering and technology, which differentiates it from market competition. Peugeot is all about refinement and efficiency and these aspects have helped the company maintain a steady growth.

Peugeot's designers have given this vehicle a radical twist, although a subtle sense of style has been maintained as well. We can clearly see that Peugeot has done away with the rounded head lamp design, fog lamps while introducing handsome looking lamp sets and Daytime Running Lights up front. A sturdy drop of 140 kg in overall weight has been recorded and this is a positive aspect of this vehicle considering enhancement is performance.

Interior trim levels have been significantly improved and this gives the 308 an all new appeal and aesthetics. Refinement and attention to details is evident in its neat upholstery and stitches and these combined have lifted the particulars of this vehicle at least by a few notches. Peugeot has installed a 9.7 inch screen which is in charge of infotainment measure.

Advanced ventilation, sound isolation and sound system are new additions although its major upgrade is the change in ride height and drive position. Both of which have been adjusted to give the driver a clearer view of the road up front while maintaining an easy driving position. This makes long journeys comfortable while advanced suspension settings maintain sturdy handling. Elegance is maintained although this is not its key component. Peugeot was careful while designing this vehicle as it will take on Volkswagen's Golf head on across various markets.

This vehicle has a reputation to build hence various offers are also on the cards. This vehicle draws power from a four cylindered 1.6 liter diesel engine displacing 114 BHP and 203 ft lb of torque. This 1560 cc engine provides 74.3 MPG while CO2 emission figures are expected to be below 98 g/km. Drive tests are on their way hence stay tuned for latest updates.
