Peugeot 308 ALLURE SW (2015, 2016 and 2017 Europe model) in depth how to drive with automatic gearbox - transmission.
Peugeot 308 has six speed automatic gearbox with two driving modes, sport and snow programmes, or you can choose manual gear changing.
You can use sport programme for more dynamic driving, or the snow programme to improve driving when traction is not so good.
When you move the gearshift in the gate to select a position, this symbol appears in the instrument panel. This way you always know in witch 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 up automatically or maintains in 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 if you want to place the gearbox in neutral. In both cases, press the parking brake, unless of course, it is programmed to automatic mode.
