With a smart interior, plenty of standard equipment and a variety of engines, the Peugeot 308 has a few strengths. Sadly, it's outclassed in many areas by other family cars. Unless you want the electric e-308, company car drivers will be best served by the Hybrid 180, otherwise private buyers will want to keep purchasing costs low with the Puretech petrol engine. Meanwhile, Allure trim makes the most sense.

A head-up display, heated steering wheel, matrix LED headlights and 18in alloys all come as standard on GT models.

This is the most powerful plug-in hybrid. Although it's swifter, it has a shorter electric-only range, so the regular 178bhp version is better value overall.
