Note blocks in front of the front wheels, they were apparently afraid of a handbrake failure. Note model. Poor her. She looked so unhappy there, angry face and all, being ultra unattractive. I stayed around the car for about ten minutes. At one moment a Chinese photographer just asked her get lost, and she did, walking off stage. I found that kinda cruel, but such is life!
The Peugeot 308 is a China-only sedan manufactured by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture.
There will be two engines: a 1.2 turbo ‘Pure Tech’ with 136hp and 230nm, and a 1.6 with 117hp and 150nm. The 1.2 turbo will be designated ‘230THP’, the 1.6 ‘150THP’. The 1.2 turbo will be mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, the 1.6 will be five-speed manual only.
The 308 is based on the PSA EMP2 platform.
Size: 4590/1820/1488, and wheelbase is 2675.
Dash is hip with an instrument panel located high up, a mid-sized touch screen, and a busy center tunnel with a clearly marked, in red!, cigarette lighter.
Best Peugeot interior since ages.
Probably the best looking Peugeot since ages.
Best rear lights for a Peugeot…ever? Just beautiful.
Much better without that babe! Love the line from mid headlight to the lower bumper. Nice car. Will compete in a very crowded segment, but surely has a chance.
