KUALA LUMPUR: The Peugeot 308 hatchback might be more popular in the European market but it does not mean that the long-roof option is not in demand. And, that’s why the Old continent gets the next-gen 308 SW, the estate version of the overhauled hatchback revealed earlier this year. The new wagon boasts an expressive styling with a racy profile and an ultra-modern interior without missing the customers’ expectations.
