Peugeot 308 CC
The main attribute of Peugeot 308 CC that makes it stand out the other similar cars is its outside appearance. The new Peugeot 308 is even more delicately shaped and looks more elegant than its predecessor. Every line in the exterior design emphasizes the softness and the integrity of its image. All the technical characteristics were improved in comparison to 307 SS, though the wheelbase of 2605 mm remained unchanged.
The new 308 CC is equipped with quite powerful engine, the same 1.6-liter petrol engine, which was developed in course of collaboration with BMW. The cabriolet is installed with a turbocharger, which allowed its power to be raised to 150 hp with 240 Nm of torque. The acceleration from 0-100km/h takes seven seconds. However, such result is only possible for the version with manual transmission while the automatic transmission version comes with 140 hp engine.
Another interesting feature is Airwave heater built into the front seats. A similar function has been recently presented in the Mercedes SL, and now it is available in a much more modest Peugeot. Firm two-section roof is fully automatic and folds in 20 seconds. Herewith the car boasts quite spacious luggage compartment with the capacity of up to 465 liters when the roof is lifted and 226 liters when it's in its initial position.
The security level is considered to be rather high. The tests conducted by Euro NCAP resulted in 308 CC having received the highest rating. In addition to the traditional front seat and side airbags, the car is equipped with the similar ones in the headrests.
Peugeot 308 CC is more likely to be bought by a woman attracted by its stylish and sophisticated design. She can feel safe driving this car with the pleasant air warming her neck and back and a lifted roof enabling her to show her new hair style to the whole world. A man may not be impressed by such possibilities. First of all he's looking for dynamics, control, aggression and sporty look, though the Peugeot 308 CC can meet the requirements of a huge number of men.
