Peugeot 308 Back to top
First released in 2007, the Peugeot 308 was a step up on the 307, and is one of the best all-round economic family cars on the market. Today it remains one of the most popular vehicles in the Peugeot range.
Although a hotly competitive class, the 308 boasts good running costs and a manufacturer name which is consistently growing more reliable. With a spacious interior and quality finish, the 308 is a popular choice with families looking for a comfortable ride.
Why buy a 308? Back to top
The Peugeot 308 range is economic and practical.
The introduction of the 308 in 2007 saw Peugeot look to revise their existing 307 model, making it more spacious, economical and safe. Achieving all three, there have been some who have criticised it for not being as much as a redesign as they would have liked, but it remains a strong contender in the small family car class.
Inside there have been many improvements on previous Peugeots, and there is a decided emphasis on quality finishings. The dashboard layout is similarly considered, favouring a mature and practical design, while the cabin holds a relatively good amount of space. While not market leading, passenger and luggage room is sufficient. If you're looking for something bigger however, the estate model (308 SW) is the car for you.
Having such a comfortable interior, the 308 excels on the road during long journeys, particularly on the motorway at high speeds. On smaller roads featuring more twists and turns, the 308 doesn't excel like some of its competitors, but the ride is nonetheless comfortable, if not thrilling. With a maximum score of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test rating however, it is a very safe, responsible family car.
Engine options vary, and there is a choice of 97bhp 1.4 VTi, 118bhp 1.6 VTi, and 1.6 THP petrol models on offer, and 1.6 HDi and 1.6 e-HDi diesels. Both the 1.4 and 1.6 petrol models offer an adequate performance for their class, while the e-HDi version features the best running costs in the range. Coming with a stop/start system in place, this model offers an impressive 70mpg return, but unfortunately falls just the wrong side of 100g/km CO2 emissions meaning it is not road tax exempt.
The 308 is arguably one of the most refined and dynamic family cars that Peugeot has produced, but they do tend to depreciate fairly quickly. While this makes them relatively expensive to buy new, it does mean that they are an attractive used car option.
