For Arguably Peugeot's smartest and best-built coupe-cabrio to date. The Peugeot 308 CC has some good engines and a high-quality cabin. The safety and equipment spec is close to top-notch.

Against It weighs much more than a 308 hatch and that affects performance and driveability. Not the four-seater Peugeot claims.

The Peugeot 308 CC is well priced and certainly looks the part. However, it’s nether as fun nor as comfortable to drive as some rivals, and the rear seats are all but useless.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Predictably, the Peugeot 308 CC takes its engines from the 308 hatchback range. The weakest units from both the petrol and diesel ranges have been left on the shelf, though, so CC buyers have just six engines choose from, rather than eight in the hatch.

It’s just as well, too. Even the most powerful of the engines, the 197bhp petrol turbo that gives hot-hatch pace in the hatchback, can struggle to shift the extra weight of the CC. It’s not slow, but it’s not as sprightly as you expect, either.

The CC gives more standard kit than you get in the hatchback, though. Entry-level Access cars come with air-conditioning, powered windows, alloys and Bluetooth, while Active models add cruise control, climate control, automatic lights and wipers and parking sensors. Allure models have leather seats with a gizmo that blows warm air down the back of your neck, while GT models have sportier styling.

Reader test team says:

Peugeot 308 CC 1.6 THP 156 SE 2dr

We have owned our year old 308cc for just under 2 weeks and have done 800 miles in it so far. The car looks very upmarket & in our eyes very stylish…
