At the moment of writing, we are driving the impressive 360 HP Peugeot 508 SW Plug-in Hybrid, and enjoy this superb sporty car to the full. But there is more pleasant news: the new PEUGEOT 308 SW comes to our shores, and has plenty to offer: it offers space with a length of 4.64 meters and wheelbase of 2.73 meters. It has only a Cx value of 0.277 and a SCx value of 0.618 m2, resulting in impressively low CO₂ emissions and fuel consumption.
Of course it is practical with numerous interior storage compartments and a large center console, has split (40/20/40) folding rear seats with control from the loadspace floor with two height positions and automatic opening and closing tailgate for easy access when the driver’s hands are full.
The luggage compartment is 608 liters to a maximum of 1,634 liters with the rear seats folded.
Like the new PEUGEOT 308, the new PEUGEOT 308 SW offers the new and improved PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, which we also enjoy in the 508 SW.
This means a new compact steering wheel, equipped with controls and steering wheel heating, eye-level three-dimensional digital headset with a 10-inch digital display, new infotainment system PEUGEOT i-Connect® Advanced with the typical operation and environment of a smartphone.
But that is not all good news from the stellantis front.
Alfa Romeo is pleased to announce that from March 25, orders can be placed for the new Tonale model, in its exclusive launch version “EDIZIONE SPECIALE”.
A very special configuration for the first customers, packed with technology and connectivity, characterized by the typical sportiness of Alfa Romeo.
The Tonale “EDIZIONE SPECIALE” is available in a hybrid configuration with a 1.5 liter 4-cylinder engine producing 130 hp, combined with the new 7-speed dual clutch transmission, with an integrated “P2” electric motor (48 volts, 15 kW , 55 Nm), which can drive the wheels even when the internal combustion engine is turned off.
The Tonal “EDIZIONE SPECIALE” is available through financing by FCA Bank at monthly installments of €279 per month* and at the same price in the main European markets.
Alfa offers also peace of mind for the customer: 5-year warranty throughout Europe and special mobility services through Leasys.
Last but not least, product quality and commercial offering is designed for maximum long-term value retention.
As we said earlier, Alfa offers with its Tonale a new digital customer experience, with the possibility to be one of the first to discover and order Tonale, both at home and at the dealer.
The Tonale is Alfa’s first car with an NFT certificate. Based on blockchain technology and uniquely linked, it certifies the car at the time of purchase and then evolves to archive its use during its lifecycle, with great benefits in terms of residual value protection.
More Peugeot and Alfa news soon!
