Review

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

get the best price

This is Peugeot’s ‘warm’ hatch version of the 308. As such, it gets two potent engine choices, as well as a lowered ride height, keyless entry and start, radar cruise control and automatic emergency braking as standard, along with the ability to disengage the electronic stability control. There are also a whole host of bespoke sporting visual changes both inside and out.

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.
