Four trim levels S, SR, Sport and SE replaced the 307 SW and 307 Estate range of vehicles from June 2008. S and SR versions will differ from the Sport and SE versions by the fitment of a steel roof panel and a folding split rear bench seat, instead of individual removable seats and a Cielo panoramic glass roof as found on the Sport and SE versions.

At launch the 308 SW is available with eight engine options, five petrol engines and three HDi diesel engines.

Petrol engines: 1.4 litre VTi 95 bhp 5-speed manual gearbox, 1.6 litre VTi 120 bhp 5-speed manual gearbox & 4-speed automatic, 1.6 litre THP 140 bhp 4-speed automatic gearbox, 1.6 litre THP 150 bhp 6-speed manual gearbox, 1.6 litre THP 175 bhp 6-speed manual gearbox
