Rating: 3/5

The oil-burning 308 offers good value considering it costs less than its Golf rivals.

Its perfection is however slightly blighted by an oversize steering wheel and the eternal Peugeot Achilles heel – a recalcitrant and rubbery gearshift. Other than that the 308 is a joy.

The well-appointed cabin is spacious, its glass roof a treat and the dashboard soft to the touch. Abandon your reservations about French cars and prepare to be surprised.
