The new 308 takes advantage of its restyle to accommodate eight new systems of the latest generation for driving assistance.

A new engine block
Under the hood of this restyle, Peugeot 308 appears a new engine. This is the 130 hp BlueHDI diesel four-cylinder. Another novelty is the possibility of combining the 180hp BlueHDI block with the eight-speed automatic transmission EAT8 developed by Aisin.
Peugeot also announces that all engines have been revised to be more efficient. They will be cleaner and adapt in advance to the new Dollars 6c standard. Thus, the PureTech block 130 ch receives a particle filter and yet it is indeed a petrol engine.
