The framework of the lifestyle market has experienced a number of significant revisions since the opening of the Peugeot 307 CC in 2003. Cabriolets with a foldable rigid roof have become more acceptable compared to those with the more vulnerable soft top. The 307 CC is the main household vehicle for more than half of the customers.
The car is chosen for it intelligent design and for its styling, but it is also welcomed in everyday use for its comforts, specs and riding pleasure.
Replacing the 307 hatch and SW variants, the 308 offers all the advantages of its successful predecessor but at the same time enforces a new identity, up-to-date sensation and strong individuality. Although it gets the most out of the original advantages of the 308 it still exemplify the 307 CC spirit and the Peugeot'd coupe-cabriolet proficiency.
It also ensures fans of lifestyle motoring a special offer the ability to enjoy the car in all seasons and to take advantage further of the cabriolet arrangement. It distinguishes itself by the excellent smoothness of its design in both configurations as coupe and cabriolet.
From front to rear and from top to bottom, the striking style of its elegant chrome accented profile is further underscored by its light-reflecting curves. The 308 CC, which is low lying, is fitted with LED rear lights which employs red light curtain technology has a distinct signature for the car both during the day and at night. The passenger section has its own individual characteristics.
Mainly remarkable in the cabriolet variant, it has a different feel from the hatch and produces the sensation of a grand touring vehicle. Built-in air vents, which provide warm air in the direction of the neck of the driver and front passenger, are provided for both sculpted front seats with integrated head restraints. On the other hand, the rear seats reflect a unique design and provide space remarkably generous for a cabriolet variant.
The unique design continues to the door panels, integrating a stylish yet active and full-bodied metallic inner door handle. The theme is rounded off with a sporty steering wheel, an instrument panel that is especially finished and the black lacquer central console.
Engine lineup includes two dynamic and flexible engines with a 6-speed manual gearbox and automatic gearbox as option. One is a 1.6-liter THP 110 kW (150bhp) turbocharged direct injection gasoline unit with a troque of 240Nm attained at 1,400rpm and a 2.0-liter HDi FAP Euro 5 compliant 103kW (140bhp) diesel unit producing torque of 320Nm at 2,000rpm both of which are efficient and eco-friendly.
