Review

The Peugeot 308 offers a lot of what family car buyers are looking for, including low running costs, a decent driving style and a comfortable interior. Rivals offer more space and keener handling, though.

Entry-level Active Premium includes 16in alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, LED headlights, and the 10in infotainment screen with full smartphone connectivity.

Delivering reasonable pace in a refined manner, the 110 offers the best balance of performance, running costs and purchase price. It can only be had with a manual gearbox, but it’s our favourite engine of the range.
