Peugeot has revealed the first photos of its all-new Peugeot 308 SW estate, at a time that sees the first of the new Peugeot 308 hatchbacks being delivered to customers in Ireland.

The new Peugeot 308 SW estate, as with the hatchback, has been completely restyled to a high standard of quality finish and features Peugeot's new 'iCockpit' interior.

Scheduled for unveiling at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show this March, the new Peugeot 308 SW will go on sale in Ireland in July.

As with the new 308 hatchback, the new Peugeot 308 SW is built on Peugeot's new Efficient Modular Platform (EMP2).

Peugeot says this guarantees increased efficiency and excellent build quality, once again confirming the marque's move up-market.

308 SW is 140kg lighter overall than its predecessor, to ensure reduced fuel consumption and low-CO2 emissions.

Peugeot goes on to say its new Euro 6 petrol and diesel engines will ensure remarkable levels of performance.

A 'BlueHDi' version, producing only 85g CO2 per km, will establish a new benchmark in the segment.

With 308 SW, Peugeot's designers have created a sporty estate car with a wide stance, measuring 4.58m in length and 1.47m in height.

Its internal dimensions allow excellent passenger room; they also will enjoy a bright and airy cabin.  The boot is among the largest in the segment. Seats are folded with a single action from inside the boot, to offer a perfectly flat floor when needed.

Built at Sochaux, the new Peugeot 308 SW will be fitted with power units produced at the Peugeot Trémery and Douvrin plants in France.

Full pricing and specification details for the Irish market will be announced closer to the launch.
