AutoThe perfect interaction between machine and driver

The perfect interaction between machine and driver

If we turn back pages in the history books, we find great events, feats and inventions that marked a before and after. A turning point that, in the past, made it possible to live a present full of comfort and security. Even the arrival of new technologies in the world of communication and security has revolutionized a society that is advancing by leaps and bounds , something that the automotive industry has benefited from.

In fact, how man interacts with his car has evolved a lot since the appearance of the first buttons in the 19th century: from barely having buttons at the beginning of the 20th century, to being full of them a hundred years later, to later give prominence to the touch screens and voice recognition systems. In the specific case of the French manufacturer Peugeot, it has worked to offer the best possible combination of all these interfaces in its compact 308, in the search for perfect interaction between man and machine. What’s more, this model launches an evolution of the Peugeot i-Cockpit, a driving position concept that combines ergonomics, design and the best functionalities of each type of interface, so that the driver interacts in a natural, effective and safe way with your car, and have a more immersive experience.

This driving position has become a hallmark of the brand . It offers raised instrumentation, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road; the high-definition touch screen, always within reach and sight; the innovative i-toggles switches, which facilitate direct access to a configured function; the traditional physical controls on the steering wheel and center console; and the natural language voice recognition system.

But before entering the gallery, it should be noted that this latest generation of this Peugeot is manufactured on the EMP2 platform, an architecture that has allowed the introduction of electrification in the smaller segments, an innovation as well. In this way, the 308 will be able to offer two plug-in hybrid mechanics.
