Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

With the quality and diversity of the hot hatch market increasing at an unprecedented rate, the 308 GTi would have a hard time making a case for itself based on driving dynamics alone. This is something Peugeot is clearly aware of, because the 308 GTi is priced very competitively.

Every model receives a plethora of exterior trimmings which includes sporty side skirts, an aggressive front bumper and rear diffuser, a large twin exhaust system, lightweight 19in wheels, parking sensors, LED headlights and automatic lights and wipers.


The Peugeot 308 GTi is fast and well equipped, but it isn't as involving to drive or as practical as the best hot hatches.
