2017 Peugeot 308 Active review

Read the full article here. That’s that. Three months and as many thousand kilometres later, and it’s time to hand back our 2017 Peugeot 308 Active hatchback. We’ve traversed highways and country roads, done the daily grind commute thing, pawed over its interior and infotainment, and while I’ve been the primary possessor of the car during its time here, it has spent time with other members of the editorial and executive teams...

2016 Peugeot 308 GTi Review : Australian First Drive

It’s no fun arriving late for the party, especially when it's 15 years late. Since the 2000 model 306 GTI-6, Peugeot has been busy building some other fine front wheel drive fare, like the RCZ-R and 208 GTI 30th Anniversary. But now they’re back with this, the 308 GTI, a potent new hot hatch built to go head-to-head with Volkswagen’s definitive Golf GTI...

Peugeot 308 R 500hp Hybrid Concept : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

The muscled Peugeot 308 R HYbrid hatchback could make it to production as a performance flagship model for the French brand’s go-fast arm. Peugeot Sport has already launched the 208 GTI and 308 GTI models, and according to Guillaume Couzy, Peugeot marketing and communication director, an even more manic, petrol-electric performance hatch could form part of the range...

Volkswagen Golf GTI v Peugeot 308 GT v Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV : Five-door hot-hatch comparison

The term ‘hot-hatch’ is commonly used to describe a hatchback that straddles the line between performance and practicality. Some skew closer to performance than practicality, while others veer the other way. What happens when you have Volkswagen Golf GTI money, though, but don’t necessarily want to blend in with the tartan-clad German crowd? That’s where the French Peugeot 308 GT and Italian Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV step in...

2015 Peugeot 308 Touring Allure review

I have had my 2015 Peugeot 308 Touring wagon for a year-and-a-half now, and really enjoy the car. Originally I was tossing up between a Holden Calais, Subaru Liberty and the 308. I ended up going with the Peugeot because of the nimble handling and supremely light steering. The Calais by comparison was boat like, although I can see the benefit of the larger vehicle on the open Australian country roads...

2013 Peugeot 308 Sportium Touring HDi Review

When I bought the 2013 Peugeot 308 Sportium Touring wagon, space enough to fit two bikes standing in the rear instead of plonking them on the roof or rear mounted rack was the main requirement as was the ability to load large Ikea flat-packs. This car is versatile enough for all this as all rear seats( 5 of them) can be removed...

2012 Peugeot 308 C Allure HDi Review

After owning a 307 1600 HDi hatchback for eight and a half years from nearly new, I decided to replace it with a 308 and was tempted by a 2yo CC 2.0litre Allure model. Apart from the lack of coffee cup holder and not a lot of space for the occasional trip with two passengers 6'3 high in it, this is a dream stylish car to own and drive...

2010 Peugeot 308 CC Review

Please note, this is a woman's review so don't expect to read technical jargon. Never owned a French car before, previously had VW beetle, Ford escort and Mitsubishi Pajero io for 10 years. Decided to have a complete change and buy a convertible, however, had no idea of what to buy until one day I happened to see a full page advertisement for this car when it was released here in 2009...
