What alternatives should I consider to a used Peugeot 108 hatchback?
Probably the biggest competitor to the 108 is the Volkswagen Up. Thanks to sharing parts with its more expensive siblings, 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.
The Toyota Aygo is essentially the same car as the 108, but it has bolder styling and the backing of a longer five-year warranty.
If you need the most interior space for your money, then the Hyundai i10 has one of the biggest boots in the sector and it copes better with transporting four adults than almost any other rival.
