What alternatives should I consider to a used Peugeot 108 hatchback?
The Peugeot 108's main competitor is probably the Volkswagen Up. The Up shares parts with its more expensive siblings so all the major controls have a damped, quality feel to them. Road, wind and engine noise are all very well contained for this class of car, and there’s even the option of a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine that offers brisk acceleration.
If you don’t have the cash to splash on an Up, some of its cheaper siblings such as the Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii offer almost the same capabilities for less cash. The Toyota Aygo is essentially the same car as the 108 but has bolder styling and the backing of a longer five-year warranty.
