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: GT Line

Larger 18in alloy wheels, tinted windows, LED headlights, a reversing camera and various sporty GT visual upgrades are your reward for buying Peugeot’s GT Line trim. We’d stick with Active, seeing as it’s better value and GT Line’s large wheels don’t help the 308’s ride.

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.
