Peugeot hatchback restyle includes Visteon advanced cockpit technology

Having already sold 1.5 million units, Peugeot has presented a restyled version of its bestseller 308 hatchback and software for 2020, offering new exterior design options, the latest generation of engines and an updated interior that is enhanced by a striking digital cluster supplied by Visteon.

Based on cutting-edge technology featured previously on the Peugeot 208, Visteon’s cluster takes the complex HMI distributed on the two background and foreground screens and combines their functionalities into a single 10.25-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) design for the Peugeot 308 – while retaining much of the original 3D content.

 

This important new launch represents further development and deployment of Visteon’s platform first seen with the 3D cluster on the Peugeot 208. Capitalizing on the customer’s platform strategy, Visteon’s expert team has leveraged exceptional program engineering and manufacturing capabilities to ensure successful launch with a popular and long-standing Peugeot model.

Peugeot’s latest restyle of the 308 model brings the vehicle quickly up-to-speed with the latest customer expectations in on-board technology – including a fully digital and reconfigurable cockpit. As a bonus for the automaker, Visteon's flexible architecture allows for the creation of additional variants with limited effort.

Visteon’s digital instrument cluster is fitted as standard and slots seamlessly into Peugeot’s i-Cockpit© – helping to deliver a dynamic, high-tech setting that brings a more intuitive, connected and personalized user experience to the Peugeot cabin.
