The 308 SW features an array of innovative new technologies designed to increase its overall performance.
From the interactive touch screen to the responsive engine technology, control is right at your fingertips.
The 308 SW offers a choice of two turbo charged PureTech petrol engines. Peugeot’s PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engine technology delivers a drive and performance normally associated with bigger engines but with significantly improved fuel consumption. It’s the result of intelligent, innovative engineering, which combines reduced weight materials with the efficiency of direct fuel injection to give you maximum pleasure behind the wheel, at any speed, for less.

Our largest touch screen to date (available on the Active version and above) brings all your multimedia and air conditioning controls together in one place for ease of use. This stylish touch screen to date is framed by a simple dashboard, with very few buttons and just one large volume dial - an original approach to complete a minimalist look.
Why waste petrol if you’re waiting at a red light or in traffic? Peugeot’s e-HDi (for diesel engines) and e-VTi (for petrol engines - available from Summer 2014) Stop & Start system senses when you come to halt and stops the engine. Then it starts it again as soon as you want to move off. It means you use less fuel and produce up to 15% less CO2 while driving in the city.
BlueHDi is the name given to Peugeot’s latest generation of diesel engines, now available on the 308 SW. The result of a world-famous diesel heritage plus innovation and engineering excellence developed on the race tracks of Le Mans, BlueHDi complies with Euro 6* emission standards, to deliver exceptional fuel economy and CO2 emissions alongside a driving experience rich in power and performance. A three stage cleansing process specifically targets the pollutants of diesel combustion, removing hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide, reducing nitrogen oxides by up to 90% and eliminating 99.9* of particulates. BlueHDi delivers the cleanest diesel engine possible and exceptional fuel economy of up to 91mpg with CO2 as low as 82 g/km. Watch the video above to find out more.LEARN MORE ABOUT BLUEHDi ENGINES
The Peugeot 308 SW uses our newly-developed electric power assisted steering, making it even more responsive. This also means its CO2 emissions are further reduced, and it has an even tighter turning circle – ideal for city driving.
No more fumbling for your keys and stabbing at the door handle in the dark. With the Peugeot Open & Go system, you have keyless entry, meaning you’re ready to go. Just open the door, take a seat, depress the clutch and hit the start button and you're off.
Don’t worry about going too fast or too slow – just set the dynamic cruise control to your optimum speed and the 308 SW will automatically stick to it. It will sense when you’re approaching another car and slow down for safety, then speed back up when you’ve passed it.
Backing into a parking space or getting out of one has never been easier, thanks to the 308 SW’s 'City Park' parking assistance feature, available as an option on the 308 SW. Like the 208, it assesses the parallel space available and directs you towards a suitable space, then the ultrasound sensors guide you in simply and safely. It can also guide you into a normal parking space in a car park as well as a parallel spot.
