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...

Peugeot introduces first petrol particulate filter to Australia

It seems the French have found a way around Australia's poor fuel quality, beating the rest of the world to bring the first petrol particulate filter (PPF) to our market in the new Peugeot 308 GT warm hatch. Peugeot Australia has confirmed that local versions of the 308 GT will indeed be fitted with a PPF, despite other manufacturers like Porsche and Volkswagen claiming they're unable to bring their PPF-fitted powertrains Down Under due to our sulphur-rich petroleum...

2016 Peugeot 308 Active review

So, a little while ago here I posted a very glowing review of my 2008 Ford Territory TX – my first car. In March this year, though, a family discussion of my needs and the car’s age and resale etc came up, and the decision was made to switch from the trusty but aging Tezza. Ideally, the next car would be a direct replacement – a dog-mobile/tow car with preferably a diesel engine and lower mileage...

2008 Peugeot 308 XSE HDi review

I bought my (what has proven to be) trustworthy 308 amidst all the usual small car options. I surveyed Mazda 3s, the Ford Focus, and the CarAdvice all-rounder Volkswagen Golf. Due to the kilometres I travel, a diesel seemed like the best option. One thing that PSA has always done very well is diesel! I took the ‘risk’ of buying my first car, an ‘unreliable’ French car...

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...
