How To: Drive Peugeot 308 with Automatic Gearbox (Transmission)

Drive Peugeot 308 with Automatic Gearbox (Transmission)

This is an in-depth look at how to drive a Peugeot 308 ALLURE SW (2015, 2016, and 2017 European model) with an automatic gearbox and transmission.

The Peugeot 308 has a six-speed automatic gearbox with two driving modes, sport and snow programs, or you can choose manual gear changing.

You can use the sport program for more dynamic driving or the snow program to improve driving when traction is not so good.

When you move the gearshift in the gate to select a position, a symbol appears in the instrument panel. This way, you always know in which position you are currently in.

With your foot on the brake, select position P or N, then start the engine.

Release the parking brake unless it is programmed to automatic mode. By the way, it is a great function, and I use it all the time. Select position D. Gradually release the brake pedal. And you are moving.

The Peugeot 308 gearbox operates in auto-adaptive mode. This means that you don't have to do anything. It always selects the most suitable gear according to the style of your driving, the profile of the road, and the load in the car. The gearbox changes automatically or maintains the same gear until you reach the maximum engine speed. When braking, the gearbox changes down automatically to provide the most efficient engine braking.

Before switching off the engine, you can select position P or N to place the gearbox in neutral. In both cases, press the parking brake unless it is programmed to automatic mode.
