Key Facts

Known for its distinctive, less-is-more design, something you can guarantee with the 308 is plenty of engine options. Whether you want a powerful diesel or a fuel efficient petrol, you’ll be able to find it inside a 308.

Why buy a Peugeot 308?

If you’re after a diesel hatchback that will enable fewer trips to the forecourt, the 308 is just that car. It’s also one of the best looking cars in its market, while they’re pretty safe and reliable as well as being fun to drive. If you’re looking for your next car and want an upgrade on a supermini or city car due to new family members or a new job, you could do far worse than buy a 308.

Which Peugeot 308 is right for me?

Latest Range

For the cost-conscious: Peugeot 308 Active

For the cost-conscious: Peugeot 308 Active

One of the least expensive models in the 308 range, the Active does better than some for tech: a satnav, trip computer and cruise control all come as standard. It isn’t the most powerful hatch, but its sleek exterior and comfortable ride can make each journey, no matter how mundane, seem like a pleasure.

For a touch of luxury: Peugeot 308 Allure

For a touch of luxury: Peugeot 308 Allure

With a name like ‘Allure’, this particular trim is one step up from the Active in terms of on-board equipment and performance. Among the additional gadgets and gizmos coming as standard are a reversing camera and front parking sensors. Meanwhile, certain engine options can get up to around 147 bhp, so you know you’ve got grunt when you need it.

Previous Range

A steal: Peugeot 308 Active

A steal: Peugeot 308 Active

For a car that you can pick up for less than £7,000, the more previous range’s 308 Active is a bit of a bargain. Rain-sensing wipers, an auto dipping rear mirror and big alloy wheels can all be had at this price point. A great option for those who aren’t sold on the new 308’s appearance.

Lots for your money: Peugeot 308 Allure

Lots for your money: Peugeot 308 Allure

Very nearly the top of the range, the Allure, as you might expect, has lots under the bonnet. Certain engines even have a 0–60 of 8.5 seconds, allowing you to be first off at the lights with ease. It also comes in an estate/tourer option too, if you want something that’s fast as well as family friendly.

Extras on top of the Active spec are subtle; offering dual climate control, rear parking sensors and panoramic sunroof as standard.

What are the Alternatives?

Robust and reliable: Volkswagen Golf

Robust and reliable: Volkswagen Golf

A timeless classic in this range, the Golf has enthralled drivers for many generations and still appeals to a wide range of people and needs. It’s reliable, fun to drive and practical. Good cabin space makes the Golf a good choice for anyone in the market for a smaller family-friendly vehicle.

Good everywhere: Ford Focus

Good everywhere: Ford Focus

From the basic Style to the super-speedy RS, the Focus has won over millions of drivers through the years. High levels of equipment and a spacious interior make it just the ticket for many people for any young family or professional couple, although it can be driven for fun as well as function – the Focus RS has a top speed of 165mph.

Lots of extras: Vauxhall Astra

Lots of extras: Vauxhall Astra

Practical to drive, the higher spec Astra trims have satnav and other goodies on board, while most models are able to achieve upwards of 50 mpg. Boot space isn’t an issue either – with the seats up, luggage capacity stands at around 350 litres – not bad for a small hatchback!
