Why the new Peugeot 308 is better than ever

Little more than a decade old, this compact family hatchback has always been a winner.

In fact, in 2014, the second-generation of the Peugeot 308 vehicle was awarded the prestigious European Car of the Year award. Towards the end of 2017, it received a significant overhaul.

The latest 308 iteration sports a new radiator grille, a subtly redesigned bonnet and a more streamlined front bumper. The rear of the car has been revised too, most noticeably the attractive tail lights.

With a standard-issue 1.2-litre 108bhp PureTech engine installed, the Peugeot 308 delivers diesel-like levels of efficiency: as much as 70.6mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 95g/km.

Models that are fitted with a 9.7-inch touchscreen now feature MirrorLink, which, by using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, allows the driver to access their smartphone via the car’s display.The same variants also add 3D mapping and voice-control functionality.

The Peugeot 308 GT Line models possess a sportier look than regular variants, and includes full LED lights, as well as a clear view behind the car, thanks to a reversing camera.

The Top-of-the-line GTi trims offer the ultimate expression in 308 sportiness with, for example, 19-inch two-tone-finish alloy wheels, which are fitted with red-painted brake callipers.

This grade also features a lowered ride height, a black rear diffuser and expansive twin exhausts.

If the Peugeot 308 appeals to you but you need something a little roomier, please take a look at the Peugeot 308 Estate.

This bigger model features a 660-litre boot space that rises to 1,775 litres with rear seats folded.
