Trim level

GTi
The GTi not only gets more power, but 19in alloy wheels as standard, a Torsen limited-slip differential on its front axle, red brake calipers and bigger front brake discs. It also gets bespoke bucket seats to keep you in place.
GT
This is Peugeot’s β€˜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.
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.
Allure
Going for Allure gets you larger 17in alloy wheels, front foglights, front and rear parking sensors, power folding mirrors and an electronic parking brake. Most of these are wants not needs, though, so we’d stick with Active.
Our pick
Active
Active trim is the cheapest way into a 308. It comes as standard with 16in alloy wheels, climate control, rear parking sensors, a leather steering wheel, automatic lights and wipers, a 9.7in colour touchscreen with sat-nav (plus MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring) and driver adjustable lumbar support. It’s our pick.
