Review

The Peugeot 308 has some frugal engines, but it falls way short of its best rivals to drive and rear space is tight

Trim: Active

Active trim is the cheapest way into a 308. It comes as standard with 16in alloy wheels, climate control, rear parking sensors, a leather steering wheel, automatic lights and wipers, a 9.7in colour touchscreen with sat-nav (plus MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring) and driver adjustable lumbar support. It’s our pick.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech 130

The 130 feels more urgent than the lower-powered 1.2-litre engine and it is available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox. However, it has limited appeal, considering that the diesels are nearly as powerful and more efficient.
