What used Peugeot 308 estate will I get for my budget?
High mileage examples of the 308 SW can be had for under £6000, but we’d suggest you spend between £7000 and £9000 and track down a 2014 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent dealer. Up the folding stuff to between £10,000 and £12,000 and you’ll find good 2015 and 2016 cars with the same criteria satisfied.
How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 308 estate?
Unsurprisingly, the diesel-engined 308 SWs are the most economical. Choose the 1.6 BlueHDi 120 engine in Active trim and the claimed average fuel consumption is a staggering 88.3mpg. Opt for Allure trim and it’s 85.6mpg, with other diesel variants all recording figures in the 70mpg ranges.
On the petrol side, the 1.2 Puretech 110 in Active trim returns an excellent claimed average of 67.3mpg, with other petrols recording figures in the 60mpgs.
Peugeot operates a bespoke servicing plan for used cars that can be tailor-made around you and your car. The most commonly used one for the 308 SW comprises a monthly payment, currently £19.68, that covers the car for its service interval of 16,000 miles or one year, whichever occurs first.
Insurance groups range from 14 for the lowest petrols up to 27 for the top-spec 2.0 diesel, with most hovering around the 17 to 23 range.
