Forward view is good, thanks to the 308’s deep wide windscreen and generous front side windows. That means negotiating T-junctions and roundabouts can be done in confidence.
The view backwards isn’t so straightforward, because the 308’s rear window is rather small and its rear pillars relatively wide. Handily, rear parking sensors are standard across the range, while a reversing camera comes as standard on GT Line, as well as the GT and GTi models.
Visibility at night improves from third-rung GT Line trim, because that’s the point from which the 308 gets LED headlights as standard. They’re an optional extra on second-rung Allure trim, although they’re a pricey addition. Entry-level models can’t have them.
