2018 Peugeot 308 GTi 270 review - track test

The 2018 Peugeot 308 GTi hot hatch gets some minor tweaks inside and out – but the French manufacturer hasn't dared to mess with the mechanicals... which is just as well.

2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test Video, Part 2: Road

Welcome to Part Two video feature for our recent 2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test. To recap, we've assembled three all-wheel drives and three front-drivers from non-premium marques, with pricing ranging from $43k (i30 N) through to $57,690 (STI Spec R). It's a rich and diverse field with each competitor representing its maker's fastest and most fun-filled efforts...

2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test, Part 1: Track

It's time. With some new entries in the Australian scene, it's time to pull together some of the most compelling hot hatches to see which is most deserving.  ...

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...

2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test Video, Part 1: Track

We pit five of the best turbo hot hatches - and one wildcard sedan - against one another to find out which is the fastest and most fun small rocketship for under $60k. In this video we test outright performance and lap times...

2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test

Is there a more vibrant and diverse segment on the market right now than that labelled 'hot hatch'? In fact, is it technically a segment at all, but rather a broad net cast wide enough to include a $25K compact-sized Suzuki Swift Sport at one extreme and larger, circa-$80K Audi RS3s and Merc-AMG A45s at the other? And that’s just hatchbacks...

Peugeot 308 GTI production halted for WLTP, local supply unaffected

Peugeot has halted production of the 308 GTi for four months, as it works to revise the car's 1.6-litre engine to pass incoming World harmonised Light vehicle Testing Procedure (WLTP) standards. Local supply of the turbo tearaway, which finished fifth in our recent hot hatch mega test, shouldn't be affected by the break in production at Peugeot's factory in Sochaux, France...

Peugeot offering seven-year warranty on SUVs, upgrades on hatches

Peugeot is offering a seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty on its SUV models sold before the end of June, as part of a wider sales campaign. The brand's 'delicious' deals campaign will upgrade 208 Active ($21,990 before on-roads) and 308 Active ($26,990 before on-roads) purchases to the Allure grade, representing $3000 and $5000 of extra value respectively...

2014-15 Peugeot 308 recalled

Peugeot has issued a recall for its 'T9' 308 small car over concerns a faulty cooling strategy and maximum temperature alert could cause the engine to overheat. The French manufacturer says overheating could cause the engine to seize when in use, meaning the vehicle could stop suddenly. If the condition occurs, this poses an accident risk for the vehicle's occupants and other road users...

Peugeot adds AEB across the line-up - UPDATE

Update (22/1): Peugeot's local division has confirmed that the 208 GTi and 308 GTi are unavailable with AEB from the factory, and therefore are not included as part of the range-wide safety upgrade. Peugeot Australia has added autonomous emergency braking (AEB) as standard equipment across its line-up, including the 208, 308, 2008 and 3008...

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...

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...
