NEW PEUGEOT 308 for FRANKFURT SHOW DEBUT By Brian Foley

The all new Peugeot 308 makes its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and is due to go on sale in Ireland in early 2014.

The 308 is an all new design and style from cover to cover, on a new modular platform for which there are 116 patent applications. In addition to improved driving dynamics, aerodynamics and weight saving result in CO2 enissions as low as 86gkm. Within the compact overall length of 4.25 metres, there is a whole new interior look with an innovative i-cockpit featuring a small steering wheel and head-up instrument panel. A 9.7 inch touch-screen interface does away with traditional buttons ans switches.

The 308 will have the usual choice of Peugeot's well proven and highly efficient diesel and petrol engines.
