Peugeot 308 SW 2022. The new Peugeot 308 SW station wagon is presented.
Crossovers have not yet completely destroyed the classic station wagon genre.

In Europe, such cars are still in demand, so after the new hatchback Peugeot 308 saw the light of the day a station wagon based on it.

Like the base model, the SW version looks fresh and dynamic, and the design of the stern has undergone minimal changes: the opening of the fifth door has been increased, and there is no black lintel between the lanterns.

For twenty years now, Peugeot has been making golf-class station wagons on a stretched hatchback platform, and the new «three hundred and eighth» is no exception.

However, this time the increase does not look as generous as before. In the first generation Peugeot 308 SW, it was 100 mm, in the second generation it grew to 110 mm, and now it is only 55 mm.

However, the base of the original hatchback also grew by 55 mm when the generation changed, so that the final 2732 mm of the new station wagon is the same as that of its predecessor.

Compared to the previous station wagon, the overhangs (especially the front one) have been increased, so the total length has increased by 60 mm, to 4636 mm.

Although the Skoda Octavia Combi is still longer (4689 mm). The width has increased by 48 mm (up to 1852 mm), while the track remains the same.

Finally, the Peugeot 308 SW is 20 mm lower (1444 mm). The stated ground clearance is 143-145 mm, depending on the version.

The interior is decorated in the same way as the hatchback, but the back of the rear row is already «in the base» divided into three parts in a ratio of 40:20:40, and they can be folded by pulling the handles in the trunk.

The compartment itself has a two-level floor, but the volume has become slightly smaller: 608-1634 liters versus 610-1660 liters for the previous model.

For example, the Octavia Combi has a capacity of 640-1700 liters. Hybrid versions of the Peugeot 308 SW are less practical because of the installed battery: they do not have a two-level floor, and the trunk volume is 548-1574 liters.

The plug-in hybrid is offered in two versions. Both have a 1.6 petrol turbo engine (150 or 180 hp) and an eight-speed «automatic» with a built-in electric motor (110 hp).

In peak mode, they produce 180 or 225 hp. (depending on version), although the maximum thrust is the same (360 Nm).

A lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 12.4 kWh should be enough for 59-60 km of run in electric mode (according to the WLTP cycle).

In addition to the trimmed trunk, the hybrids also have a smaller gas tank (40 liters instead of 52).

If we consider versions without an electric suspension, then in Europe, a choice of 1.2 Puretech gasoline turbo-engines with a capacity of 110 or 130 hp is offered. and a four-cylinder 1.5 BlueHDi turbodiesel with 130 «horses».

All — with a start-stop system and a six-speed «mechanics», and an eight-speed «automatic» can be ordered only for 130-horsepower cars.

Like the base hatchback, for a surcharge, the station wagon can be equipped with an electronic Drive Assist 2.0 complex.

It will include an automatic braking system, adaptive cruise control, a lane hold function, and a «semi-automatic» for overtaking on the highway.

At the command of the driver (you just need to turn on the turn signal), the car will be able to overtake at a speed of 70 to 180 km / h.

All three hundred and eighths of the new generation will be produced at the Peugeot headquarters in Mulhouse, France.

But if the hatchback hits the market by the fall (and with trimmed equipment due to a lack of microchips), then the 308 SW wagon will have to wait until early 2022.
