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...

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...

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...

2014 Peugeot 208 GTi Review

Coming to the end of a three year stint with my 2014 Peugeot 208GTi now, so a good excuse for a self-indulgent review. For context, this was my 34th car and I like to think I'm pretty honest about the relative merits of the cars I've owned. So hopefully this helps anyone considering one for themselves...

2014 Peugeot 208 Active Review

Active gives you the style of Allure but the driving experience is completely different. I never considered Peugeot until they came out with a promotional price for Active 1.6L at $19990.
