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
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.
