Known in European markets as the 308 SW, we can likely expect the Australian model to wear the same Touring badges that adorn the current generation wagon.
That could be sometime away, however: while the new 308 hatch is already on sale in Europe, an Australian debut is not scheduled to occur until late in 2014.
The new 308 Touring measures in at 4.58 metres long, making it around 330mm longer than the hatch model, and Peugeot promises a rear storage capacity of 610 litres.
The wagon offers a little more load-lugging appeal thanks to the design of its rear seats, which can be folded down in a single motion, forming a completely flat cargo floor.
Like the hatch, the new 308 Touring is lighter than its predecessor, with the Efficient Modular Platform saving around 140kg.
On the design front, the new wagon borrows most of its looks from the hatch model, with the only standout styling changes occurring at the rear end.
Among the new 308 range's design features are the carmaker's small new chrome-framed grille design, sharpened LED-rich headlights, a more angular profile and arrow-like tail-lights.
Watch for the new 308 Touring to make its official debut in Geneva, and for the hatch to arrive here in the fourth quarter of 2014. An Australian debut for the Touring is still to be decided.
