This allowed the designers to create a very pure dashboard, with just a few buttons : an original approach where purity meets technology. It symbolised by the volume control button handled in the manner of a fine Hi-Fi system.

Among the onboard active safety systems are Blind Spot Monitoring, Dynamic Cruise Control, Emergency Collision Alert System and Emergency Collision Braking System. Full LED headlamps – a new feature for the C-segment – are standard on the higher trim level models.

The new Peugeot 308 will be available at launch with a choice of five gasoline and HDi diesel engines.
