New PEUGEOT 308 * FROM £16,375
At Peugeot, sharp design is in our DNA. And the Peugeot 308 is no exception. Both externally and internally, every detail - no matter the size - has been meticulously developed. The strong, confident lines that define the Brand are everywhere to be seen, from the slim headlamps and sculpted bonnet to the signature LED 'claw effect' rear lights. The Peugeot 308 also sits closer to the road with a 20mm lower centre of gravity than its predecessor, giving a much more purposeful stance.
In profile , the stylish alloy wheels sit closer to the edges of the car with reduced over hang whilst smart touches such as the aerodynamic door mirrors and chrome window surrounds add an extra touch of class. Watch the video above to discover the sharp design for yourself.
At Peugeot we have quite literally reinvented the wheel. Our latest development in car interior architecture, the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, features across the 308 range. The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® philosophy centres around a driving environment that puts you in control, allowing a greater connection to the road. Elements key to this are the compact sports steering wheel that gives greater responsiveness and increases manoeuvrability.
Positioned above the steering wheel is the head-up instrument panel, which displays all the key information you need while allowing you to keeps your eyes on the road, increasing safety. These innovations, coupled with a 20mm lower centre of gravity, reducing body roll, ensure that the Peugeot 308 provides incisive handling to keep you and your family safe at all times.

Every Peugeot is designed with quality in mind. This is no more apparent than in the Peugeot 308, a car that prior to launch had 2 million miles of pre-launch testing under its belt. This uncompromising approach to quality has been applied to every area of the 308's development, from the lightweight materials used in construction and the efficient LED lighting technology, right up to the full grain leather steering wheel and padded soft-touch dashboard with satin chrome detailing - nothing has been overlooked.
Our uncompromising approach has also been applied to safety and in recognition the Peugeot 308 was awarded a five star safety rating by Euro NCAP, the most widely-recognised independent vehicle safety assessor in Europe.
With its sharp design, the Peugeot 308 is certainly going to get noticed wherever you go. One place you are less likely to visit however, is the fuel station. Featuring either PureTech petrol or BlueHDi diesel technology the Peugeot 308 can boast combined MPG of up to 91.1* and hybrid-rivalling CO2 emissions from an incredible 82g/km*.
The efficiency stories get even better, in 2014 the 308 coupled with PureTech engine technology set a new record for production car fuel economy and distance averaging 99.1 MPG under test conditions. Peugeot PureTech engine technology was also awarded 'International Engine of the Year 2015' in the 1.0L to 1.4L category by a panel of 65 industry experts.
Efficiency doesn't just stretch as far as engine technology either. Everything, from the LED lighting that is 50% more efficient than halogen technology to the lightweight, strengthened platform, has been developed with efficiency in mind.
