2013 Peugeot 301

Submitted by on June 13, 2013 – 9:00 amNo Comment

2013 Peugeot 301 3The 301 incorporates the very latest stylistic codes of the Marque offering a design of refined character and a modern appearance which inspire emotion and give an aura of strength. Furthermore, the design of the vehicle was guided at every stage by this last requirement, incorporating Peugeot’s best quality criteria.

The Peugeot 301 has been developed to adapt to all conditions of use, even in extremes (hot countries, cold countries, poor road surfaces, etc.).

At 4.44m long, it sets itself apart with an optimised and generous structure which puts it a step ahead of the competition. So, it has benchmark characteristics in its segment:

  • Record occupant space in the rear seats: legroom of 121mm,
    A record boot volume of 640 litres,
  • Safe handling combined with a high level of comfort, the result of Peugeot’s expertise, guaranteeing excellent driving pleasure in all circumstances,
  • A wide range of safety equipment is available: ESP, ABS, up to four airbags, emergency braking assistance, ISOFIX, etc.

In the same way, the range of latest generation diesel and petrol engines is perfectly suited to the expectations of the target markets, with power values ranging from 72bhp to 115bhp and manual, piloted or automatic gearboxes:

  • 1.2 l VTi 53kW (72bhp) with manual or piloted gearbox
  • 1.6 l VTi 85kW (115bhp) with manual or automatic gearbox
  • 1.6 l HDi 68kW (92bhp) with manual gearbox

A symbol of modernity, the 301 therefore becomes the second vehicle of the Peugeot range, after the 208, to benefit from the new range of 3-cylinder petrol engines (1.2 l VTi) which, due to its technology, combines driving pleasure and reduced fuel consumption.

The 301 incorporates modern comfort equipment (electronic air conditioning, MP3 audio system with Bluetooth hands-free kit and USB connection, remote opening of the boot, rear parking assistance, etc.) which guarantees an excellent level of features and comfort on board.

A family vehicle, safe and reliable with great driving pleasure: these are characteristics which have already ensured the success of the Marque in many of the countries targeted by the 301. Indeed, Peugeot has been manufacturing motor vehicles for more than 100 years (since 1889) and has designed numerous three-compartment Saloons which have earned and continue to earn their place in motor vehicle history (404, 504, 305, 505, 405, 406, 407, 408, 508).

The new Peugeot 301, manufactured in the European factory in Vigo (Spain), had its world premiere at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. It went on sale on November 1st, 2012 in Turkey then over a vast area: Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Maghreb, Middle East, Gulf and African States, certain Latin American markets then in a second phase in China.

Elegance and simplicity

The Peugeot stylists who designed the 301 were inspired to a great extent by the SR1 Concept car, a model symbolising the new identity of the Peugeot marque. So, the lines are pure, clean and refined. The modernity and simplicity of its design give an impression of elegance, like a beautiful design object.

Adopting Peugeot’s latest stylistic codes, the 301 has a strong and dynamic character with sculpted lines and large bodywork surfaces, which also contribute to the vehicle’s generous, strong and high quality image. Its balanced proportions give it a sleek and elegant profile.

The front face has all the genes of the new Peugeot style with a ‘floating grille’ with chamfered surround and a marque block positioned at the top under the leading edge of the bonnet. This is the starting point of the lines which shape the bonnet, like a 508, with the Lion emblem placed in prominence at its end. In the lower section, the sculpted lower front panel below the front lamps is characteristic of the new Peugeot style. Bringing dynamism and strength, it also emphasises the feline expression of the 301. Lively, technological but also tinged with emotion, it is inspired directly by the SR1, with this characteristic inflection of the ‘eyebrow’ of the headlamps.

Sensuousness and precise, the design of the headlamps, at the junction of the bonnet, the lower front panel and the front wings, has been paid particular attention. It is, in fact, inside the front lamps that we see the beginnings of the nerve line which runs along the sides and crosses the twotone rear lamps, outlining a claw inside these lamps in the form of an inverted ‘C’, a recurring theme at Peugeot. Guided by a keen eye for detail, the designers extended the course of this line beyond the rear lamp continuing it subtly in the rear wing with a return movement. Combined with the voluptuous contours of the front wings, this body line chisels sculpted sides accentuated by sharp edges at the base of the doors.

At the rear, the solid quarter panel, in the form of a triangle and positioned above the wheel, contributes to the strength and dynamic qualities exuded by the 301. Its design and that of the upper part of the boot or the shaping of the rear wing are reinterpretations of the SR1 Concept car. They express all the purity and simplicity of the new stylistic codes.

So, the horizontal rear capping is both understated and upmarket. It is sculpted with character by the lateral nerve line which provides a visual waistline for the whole vehicle. This coherence of style can also be found in the design of the number plate location which echoes the contours of the front grille. Finally, the ribs positioned at the bottom of the lower front panel to ‘seat’ the 301 still more firmly on the road testify to the precision with which even the smallest details of style have been treated.
