Peugeot 308 review

£20,920 - £38,745
Published: 13 Jan 2015
This is the best family hatch Peugeot has ever made. Smooth, refined, and comfortable

Good stuff

Looks and feels comfortable with flashes of premium quality

Bad stuff

Not the most dynamic car in this class, some plastics a little scratchy


What is it?

The smartly styled 308 marks a real step-on for Peugeot. Forget the dreary old model of the same name, this latest one boasts an all-new platform, all-new interior and all-new fight on its hands. Whereas the old one was firmly an also-ran, this one very much takes the fight to the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus.

What's the verdict?

A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
