This is the new Peugeot 308 SW, the estate version of the recently-revealed new generation of the hatchback.
It goes up against alternatives such as the Volkswagen Golf Estate and Ford Focus Estate, equipped with plug-in hybrid engine options and semi-autonomous driver-assistance tech – oh, and the usual good looks you’d expect from a Peugeot.
2022 Peugeot 308 SW design
It’s no real shock that the Peugeot 308 SW is visually similar to the hatchback, but that’s certainly not a bad thing. It has the same sharp headlights with fang-like daytime running lights seeping from either side, and both flank a near-identical grille that houses a new Peugeot logo.
The side profile is different from the hatchback the SW’s extended roofline and larger boot, though design details at the rear are pretty similar. That includes the claw effect tailights, gloss black rear trim and chrome fake-exhaust tips.
2022 Peugeot 308 SW interior and infotainment
Just as with the hatchback, the Peugeot 308 SW gets the French manufacturer’s i-Cockpit interior layout.
That includes the tiny squared-off steering wheel, a digital driver’s display plus a 10-inch touchscreen. The infotainment system supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, too, as well as coming with an ‘OK Peugeot’ voice assistant.
Boot space is up to 608 litres in the SW, too, with an electric tailgate fitted as standard.
2022 Peugeot 308 SW semi-autonomous tech
You can have your Peugeot 308 SW equipped with a semi-autonomous driving system.
As well as adaptive cruise control that’s capable of managing its speed and distance from other cars on the motorway, the 308 SW can suggest when you should make an overtake.
2022 Peugeot 308 SW engines and plug-in hybrids
You’ve got a range of engines to pick from for the Peugeot 308 SW, including two plug-in hybrid options.
The latter consists of either a 225hp or 180hp engine linked up to a 110hp electric motor. They’ll manage 36 and 37 miles of electric-only driving respectively.
Not ready for a hybrid? You can pick between a 1.2-litre petrol engine or a 1.5-litre diesel, with all engines linked up to an eight-speed automatic.
2022 Peugeot 308 SW price and release date
No word yet on when the Peugeot 308 SW will hit showrooms, but expect to see it towards the end of 2021 at the earliest.
It’ll carry a slight premium over the hatchback, with pricing above £25,000 as a likely starting points.
