Comfortable, well built, well appointed, economical and safe the 308 ticks every box except for it's um... Challenging looks. The chubby looks and mass market badge have kept prices soft. Face lifted models and the CC are attractive though.
Other than the grille the 308 really is a very well resolved car and somewhat of a return to form for Peugeot after the lacklustre 307. It can be luxurious inside and the ride/handling balance is properly sorted.
The latest generation of petrol engines are a massive improvement over the previous petrol engines and are close to the diesels for emissions and economy. They are also usefully cheaper secondhand running at about £1000 cheaper on average.
The pick of the bunch here is the 1.6 Vti in SE spec. A comparative diesel will cost £1000 more and will usually have a much higher mileage.
Pay £12500 for a nearly new 1.6Vti in SE spec. A lot of car for the money. Expect to pay £1000 more for a diesel version of the same car.
The best time to buy will be at 3 years old when the first MOT is due. Expect heavy depreciation around this time, especially on petrol models.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Peugeot 308 you would aim to buy a 3 year old and sell it before it is 5 years old.
Diesel Peugeot 308 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Peugeot 308 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Peugeot 308 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
