The 308 hatchback will compete in the mid-sized segment replacing the 307. Rumours from around the world suggest the car will be a little longer, yet a little shorter than the 307 and there is a possibility of a two door variant - a first for the mid sized range from Peugeot.
In Europe the base model 308 will be powered by a 1.6-litre engine (found in the new Peugeot 207), with around 90kW of power. The model above will be powered by the same engine, albeit turbocharged, (112kW). There is also talk of a 125kW 2.2L turbodiesel variant to sit at the top.
The new Pug will be at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany (September).
