The Peugeot 308 is a small family car launched in 2007, which features a range of petrol and diesel engine options. The second generation 308 was debuted in Autumn 2013 with updated styling along with the 508 and the 208. The new 308 has proved to be a good alternative when compared to the Honda Civic and Ford Focus. The latest 308 is a big improvement over the earlier 308, particularly in design and quality. There’s a wide choice of engines in the 308 with impressively efficient HDi diesels – the 1.6 BlueHDi emits just 82g/km of CO2 yet still develops 120PS. But it’s the new 1.2-litre THP petrol engine that really stands out. Despite its small size the three-cylinder engine is a real gem and gives strong performance with the top version producing 130PS yet with official economy of more than 60mpg.
