There are 18 Peugeot 308 versions available
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.
