Peugeot's replacement for the 308, believed to be called the 301, has been spotted during cold-weather testing in Northern Europe.

This 308-bodied prototype doesn't give much away, but shows that despite a slight increase in track width, the 301's dimensions will be much the same as its predecessor.

Expected to launch sometime in 2013, the 301 range will likely kick off with a five-door hatchback, followed by a three-door, a stretched 301 Touring wagon and finally a 301 CC hardtop convertible.

The 301 will share its platform with the similarly-sized Citroen DS4 and C4, and the usual range of PSA petrol and diesel engines will be used.

Peugeot's recent technology-sharing agreement may also see BMW-sourced engines under the 301's bonnet, and a hybrid model is also a distinct possibility.

Why the 301 moniker? The logical name for the 308's successor would be 309, however Peugeot already used that nameplate on a fairly anonymous-looking family hatchback in the 1980s.

No harm in a reboot. Just ask the '991' Porsche 911.
