The Peugeot 308 has some frugal engines, but it falls way short of its best rivals to drive and rear space is tightget the best price
Going for Allure gets you larger 17in alloy wheels, front foglights, front and rear parking sensors, power folding mirrors and an electronic parking brake. Most of these are wants not needs, though, so we’d stick with Active.
Engine: 1.2 PureTech 110
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.
