All-new small car range to feature more tech and electrified hot hatch powertrains.
The Peugeot 308 looks set to be replaced by an all-new car at the turn of the decade, according to a new report out of France.
Caradisiac claims the new-gen 308 will be launched in 2020, boasting hatchback and wagon body styles, and a design inspired by the brand's newer models like the 3008 SUV and the 508 sedan and Touring wagon.
The report says the new model will be lighter, but also larger than the current generation, powered by a range of small-capacity turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, likely ranging from 1.0-litre to 2.0-litres in capacity.
According to Caradisiac, the 308 GT will be front-wheel drive and offer system outputs of around 220hp (164kW), while the GTi will get a dual-motor setup bringing all-wheel drive and a combined power output of around 300hp (224kW).
The report adds the GTi should be capable of an all-electric range of between 50 and 60 kilometres per charge.
Moving on from powertrains, the new 308 will get a host of high-end technologies and driver-assistance systems, including a new infotainment interface, an all-digital driver's instrument cluster, along with all the requisite active safety systems for Level 2 autonomous driving capability.
For the latter, that will include upgraded lane assistance systems and a traffic jam assist-style function for the adaptive cruise control so the vehicle is capable of driving itself in stop-start traffic.
The next-generation Peugeot 308 is said to be scheduled for reveal at the 2020 Geneva motor show, ahead of a market launch later that year as a 2021 model.
