Peugeot 308 GTi 270 v Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Comparison

How does Peugeot's wicked new 308 GTi 270 flagship hot hatch fare against the established might of Volkswagen's GTI Performance edition? We hit the twisty back-roads to find out.

Volkswagen Polo v Peugeot 208 : Comparison Review

Until recently, Australians shopping for a new city car on a budget wouldn’t have even bothered kicking tyres in a European brand’s showroom. Light Euro tikes have typically been prohibitively expensive to purchase and frightfully costly to service, making their Japanese or South Korean counterparts the default choice...

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...

Peugeot 2008 v Renault Captur : Comparison Review

So, you like French brands. You like SUVs. You like the idea of personalising your car to be unique and to stand out from the crowd. Well, you haven’t really been spoilt for choice -- until now. That’s because there are now two models on the Australian market that will tick all of those boxes. They are the all-new Renault Captur and the recently refreshed Peugeot 2008...

Peugeot 308 Touring v Volkswagen Golf Wagon : Comparison review

Not everyone wants an SUV and even those who crave one may be better off with a traditional wagon – it is a line we’ve heard before, yet the sales charts scream that the people have spoken otherwise. Neither the Peugeot 308 Touring or Volkswagen Golf Wagon can provide the high driving position of a sports utility vehicle, and likewise they don’t sit high enough that you could slide a baby into a capsule without bending down into the car...

Small car comparison : Mazda 3 v Peugeot 308 v Volkswagen Golf

Definitions shift over time, none more so in the automotive landscape than with the term ‘people’s car’. What once referred to a German Beetle, French 2CV or an Indian Tata bringing motoring to their respective masses can also be placed in an Australian context...

Small SUV Comparison : Nissan Qashqai v Holden Trax v Skoda Yeti v Peugeot 2008 v Kia Sportage

Call our original small SUV comparison test the elimination round. Earlier this year when we tested this new breed of fully loaded, sub-$30,000 sub-compact ‘softroaders’, the competition was fresh but clearly green (read the full comparison here). Six months on, and the class has shifted up several gears...

Old v New : 1994 v 2014 Subaru WRX, 1989 v 2014 Peugeot GTi, 1968 v 2014 Mini Cooper S

Comparing old with new might seem like an unfair comparison because, with few exceptions, new models are bigger, safer, more refined and more economical, often quicker, too. All of which might leave an earlier iteration without a hope. However, the flipside is that previous models are smaller and rawer, which are negatives if you’re talking about a Corolla, but can be desirable qualities in the rarefied realm of high-performance icons...

Small SUV Comparison : Holden Trax v Ford EcoSport v Suzuki S-Cross v Peugeot 2008 v Nissan Juke v Mitsubishi ASX

Buyers and manufacturers are obsessed with all things SUV at the moment, with soaring sales leading to massive expansions plans of high-riding hatchbacks and wagons with tough styling. So it comes as no surprise, then, that a new ultra-small SUV market has emerged beneath the RAV4 and CX-5 compact class...

Hot hatch comparison: Ford Fiesta ST v Peugeot 208 GTi v Volkswagen Polo GTI

This time last year driving enthusiasts with less than $30,000 to spend on a new hot-hatch had a single option: the Volkswagen Polo GTI. Okay, technically they could also pick its near-twin, the Skoda Fabia RS, but the sales charts show they didn’t. Meanwhile the Suzuki Swift Sport simply isn’t high enough on the Peri-Peri heat scale to compete...
