The Peugeot 308 is a widely-acclaimed five-door family hatchback that delivers a comfortable ride and possesses a capacious boot. The 308 is also extremely cost-effective to run and is available in Access, Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trim levels.
The 308 comes in a classy Hurricane Grey paint finish as standard, while a range of colours such as Bianca White, Nera Black, Magnetic Blue and Ultimate Red are available as options. Whichever hue you select, it will be seamlessly enhanced by the inclusion of body-coloured fixtures such as door handles, door mirrors and front and rear bumpers. The car’s sleek headlights include LED daytime running lights, which provide a distinctive light signature, and are echoed by the vehicle’s claw-style rear LEDs.
The 308’s roomy five-person cabin makes for an ideal family environment on the road. Adults in the front row are treated to more than enough space to get properly comfortable, while the rear compartment is especially ideal for younger travellers. Thanks to air conditioning and power-operated and one-touch front windows, the car’s occupants can enjoy well-ventilated and perfectly heated car journeys. A 470-litre boot is bigger than those offered by most rivals, including the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf, and should be more than enough to cope with extended shopping expeditions. If more space is needed, however, simply flip the vehicle’s 60/40 split-folding rear seats and you’ll have 1,309 litres of cargo capacity at your disposal.
The 308 is installed with a 1.2-litre 109bhp petrol engine as standard. Paired with five-speed manual transmission, this delivers up to 70.6mpg and produces a 95g/km CO2 emission figure. Offering even greater fuel-efficiency is a 1.6-litre 118bhp diesel unit, which is attached to a six-speed manual gearbox. This returns as much as 88.3mpg and emissions as low as 84g/km.
Technology and safety
For your listening enjoyment, DAB digital radio is provided as standard, offering a wide range of stations in crystal-clear sound quality. Bluetooth® connectivity features too, enabling audio streaming from your compatible media devices, while USB and AUX inputs allow a range of plug-and-play options.
The 308 has been awarded Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash-test rating and, accordingly, comes with an array of driver aids and passive safety features. These include speed-limiting Cruise Control, which allows you to set a top speed before you set out on a journey. Also included are six airbags that are carefully positioned to provide you and your co-travellers with optimum protection.
