The latest Peugeot 308 has more than earned its spurs in a tough market sector. The diesel models continue to make the most sense to UK buyers but if you run lower annual milages, have a look at the 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engine. It's available in 82, 110 or 130bhp outputs and with 60mpg+ economy figures, it looks a winner.
Why Lease The 308 Hatchback?
Peugeot has really come good with this improved 308, a car that now mixes it on talent with the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf, outscoring both in certain regards. It's refined yet characterful, has some respectable urge, especially in 130bhp guise, and its light weight and sharpness of response is a good fit for the design ethos of the 308 as a whole.
