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

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.

Engine: 2.0 BlueHDi 180

In 180 guise, this 2.0 motor is rather gruff and its eight-speed automatic gearbox can be slow to react to manual inputs. If you want warm hatch performance coupled with long-distance range, it is a tempting proposition. Otherwise, we’d still opt for the 1.5 if you want a diesel.
