Review

The Peugeot 308 offers a lot of what family car buyers are looking for, including low running costs, a decent driving style and a comfortable interior. Rivals offer more space and keener handling, though.

get the best price

Range-topping GT Premium cars come with 18in alloy wheels, a premium Focal stereo system and an improved driver’s seat with a massage function and heating. You also get a self-parking system, but GT Premium is really too expensive to recommend.

A worthy replacement for our former favourite engine in the range, the 1.6 BlueHDi 120. Not only is this new 1.5 more powerful than the unit it replaces, but it’s also cleaner and more frugal. With plenty of low-down grunt, there really is no need to step up to the larger and more expensive 2.0-litre diesels. It’s our pick of the diesels.
