The 308 CC's due to hit the dealers in spring 2009. We snapped a prototype of the future convertible undergoing hot-climate testing in southern France. Like its predecessor, the new 308 CC will mimic the hatchback’s front-end design and will get a retractable hardtop that folds in two parts. Overall length and width won’t differ much from the 3- and 5-door hatchback but rumours suggest the CC will be the world’s first car to be offered with a diesel hybrid. All conventional engines offered for the hatchback, however, will be available for the topless car, too.
