301 saloon heralds new chapter for Peugeot

A new Peugeot, the 301, promises to be one of the most significant models in the venerable French car-maker's history. It is the first of a separate range of cars designed to meet the specific requirements of customers in emerging economies but also marks a big change in the system of model names Peugeot has used for over eighty years.

With the arguable exception of Mercedes, Peugeot has the oldest and simplest system of model designations in the motor industry. This is how it has worked for more than 80 years. The first of three digits gives a rough indication of the size of a car – a one or a two at the beginning means a small car, five or six means a big one – while the final digit indicates model generation changes; the 305 was the direct replacement for the 304, for example. The middle digit is always a zero, or at least it was until a system of double zeroes was introduced for people carriers, such as the 3008, and 4x4s.

Peugeot sharpens up the 308

Peugeot is introducing a comprehensive series of updates for its Golf-sized 308. The most obvious visual change is a heavily modified and more stylish nose, inspired by the frontal treatment of the company's SR1 concept car. This new look is also shared with the bigger 508 saloon, which will arrive in UK showrooms in the next couple of months.
