Product Overview

Peugeot 308 III (chassis code P5) is an affordable compact hatchback in production from 2021. It is available with a range of inline-3 and inline-4 engines that displaced 1.2 to 1.6 liters.
Compared to the 308 II, the Mk3 has much improved exterior styling, thanks to inputs from the new Stellantis arrangement. However, the car's engines have been further downsized, and complexity has increased.
Peugeot has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag to show for it. The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
It adopts the latest version of the EMP2 platform introduced with the Mk2 308 and also used by the 3008. The plug-in hybrids use a 1.6-litre petrol engine (producing 177bhp or 221bhp) and a 109bhp electric motor that is powered by a 12.4kWh battery, which offers an electric-only range of 34 miles. On 17in wheels, it’s excellent, soaking up bumps with aplomb and combining with the smooth, quiet powertrain to offer a smooth ride.

Pros
  • Elegant styling
  • Excellent powertrain
  • Decent range
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • No hybrid option

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
This early example of the new Peugeot 308 is in the UK but still left-hand drive. It’s a range-topping plug-in hybrid with 222bhp overall, 178bhp of that coming from a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine. A 12.4kWh battery at the back that gives 36 miles of electric-only range. The 308 doesn’t get much pricier than the version seen here, at £37,135.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine

Cons
  • Brake modulation could be better
  • Poor rear accommodation

Sentiment Score 66%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Build quality feels great, and the switchgear feels slick. Infotainment tech has previously been one of the big let-downs of Peugeot cabins, but for the most part, an all-new system has fixed this. New display features 3D graphics, in effect layering two screens on top of each other to give an impression of depth. Acceleration is adequate, sprinting from 0-62mph in 9.7 seconds - but more importantly, offering good mid-range pull.

Pros
  • Sleek looks
  • Great infotainment tech
Cons
  • No manual gearbox
  • No automatic gearbox

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The new 308 continues Peugeot's i-Cockpit philosophy, which combines those digital screens with a small steering wheel over which you peer at the instrumentation. With the steering wheel's hexagonal shape, it's a bit like turning a leather-clad 50 pence piece. Its weighting is nicely judged, with a light, fluid feel at low speeds, and quick enough responses off the dead-ahead. Push a rocker button to switch from Hybrid to Electric: it feels neighbourly to waft through 30kmh villages.

Pros
  • Punchy petrol engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent fuel economy
Cons
  • Not the most practical
