Which used Peugeot 308 hatchback should I buy?
The entry-level 1.2 petrol engines aren't especially powerful and need working fairly hard but they are smooth and refined and, driven carefully, they can be reasonably economical.
Anyone looking for a sporty drive can consider the two 1.6 petrols, both of which offer sparkling performance for some compromise in fuel economy. The 250 version in the GTi is a real humdinger.
Active trim is the cheapest way into a 308. This provides 16in alloy wheels, climate control, rear parking sensors, a leather steering wheel, automatic lights and wipers, a 9.7in infotainment touchscreen, sat-nav, smartphone mirroring and driver adjustable lumbar support, so it’s our pick.
