For The Peugeot 308 offers low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It’s also got a large boot and a smartly styled cabin.

Against Rear-seat space is tight, the handling is sloppy and the touch-screen system could be easier to use.

The Peugeot 308 falls some way short of the sky-high standards set by the best rivals, although the diesel models are cheap to run as company cars.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The 308 is available with a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, but we'd go for the 1.6-litre Blue HDi diesel; it's impressively economical, refined and pulls well from low revs.

Choosing which trim to go for is pretty easy, too. Entry-level Access models miss out on some desirable equipment, so go for Active, which is well priced yet comes with dual-zone climate control, sat-nav and rear parking sensors. The more expensive versions are well equipped, but they’re not such good value.
