Which used Peugeot 308 hatchback should I buy?
The 95bhp 1.4-litre petrol model is acceptable, as long as you're not in a hurry, but the 120bhp 1.6-litre has noticeably more pep. There's also a turbocharged 1.6-litre with 140bhp, 150bhp or 173bhp. In any state of tune, this engine is entertaining, but pushes up running costs.
Those shopping for a diesel can choose between the 89bhp or 108bhp 1.6-litre engines (with the 108bhp unit being the better buy) or the rare 134bhp 2.0-litre.
Urban trim models miss out on alloys and air-con, but do get electric front windows, ISOFIX fixing points, six airbags and a CD player. S trim adds climate control, but little else, while Sport brings alloys, cruise and stability controls, and foglights. Range-topping SE trim adds a panoramic glass roof, dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth.
