The 308 SW estate car has taken centre stage at Peugeot. It replaces the 307 SW and features a string of improvements over the outgoing car.

There are three petrol and three diesel engines, ranging in power from 95bhp to 175bhp. Peugeot says the updated engine line-up means that the 308 SW gives fuel savings of up to 10% compared with its predecessor.

The car has a panoramic glass roof that extends beyond the heads of the second row of passengers and is 27% larger than the one on the 307 SW.

The three seats in the second row are all individual so that they can be removed easily. A two-seat third row turns the car into seven-seater.

With the second row of seats in place, the car's boot capacity is 674 litres; without them, the capacity is 2149 litres.
Access to the boot for smaller items is made easier by an opening tailgate glass.

Prices are expected to start from £15,500 when the car goes on sale in the UK in June.

308 GT
The new 308 GT is powered by a turbocharged 175bhp 1.6-litre engine and drives through a six-speed manual gearbox. Together, they help get the car to 62mph in 8.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 140mph.

Average fuel economy is 37.1mpg and carbon dioxide emissions are 180g/km.

Styling upgrades over other 308s include a rear spoiler and lower front bumper. The suspension has been lowered, too. Inside, there's aluminium for the gear knob and pedals, as well as a different steering wheel design.

The car goes on sale in April and is expected to cost from £17,000.
