Introduction

What Car? says...

Few classes are as closely contested as that of family hatchback, and some of its most popular models are overall UK best sellers. It's therefore vital that manufacturers make a decent job of it.

Peugeot's entry is the 308. It's available as a five-door hatchback and an estate (the SW), and has a range of engine options and a similarly long list of trims.

It's up against some of the best all-rounders on sale, such as the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra, Volkswagen Golf and, most notably, Skoda Octavia. All of these rivals excel in areas such as space, practicality and running costs – exactly the sort of areas families are interested in when buying a new car.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions of the 308, along with our recommendations for which of the many trim levels and engines you should choose. And, of course, if you already know it’s a 308 you want, head to our deals page to ensure you’re getting the best price.
