The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Peugeot 308’s i-Cockpit design has you looking over – rather than through – the small steering wheel at the standard 10in digital instrument cluster. It takes some getting used to, and if you're either very tall or shorter in stature you might find that the steering wheel partly obscures your view, but it's easy enough to get along with for most drivers.

The driving position is mostly sound, but the pedals are slightly offset from the seat and steering wheel, and that might hamper comfort on longer drives. There’s plenty of adjustment in the seat and steering wheel, so setting up your preferred position shouldn’t take too long.

Fortunately, every 308 comes with rear parking sensors as standard, while Allure models get front and rear sensors. A 360-degree camera and a self-parking system are optional on most trims, and come as standard on GT Premium cars.

LED headlights come as standard on every 308, while range-topping versions get matrix LED lights which adapt their pattern to provide maximum visibility without blinding oncoming drivers.

Sat nav and infotainment

The i-Cockpit infotainment system, presented on a 10in touchscreen in the 308, is better than in previous models we’ve tried. It features clear, crisp graphics and is packed with features and customisation options. It can be a little slow to respond to your inputs, though, and a lack of proper buttons or even haptic feedback means that using it is inherently more distracting than systems using a rotary controller.
