Peugeot's all-new 308 is a belter of a car in basic hatch form and this station wagon has to work a bit harder to impress. VALUE The Peugeot 308 Allure , which stands for station wagon, opens the bidding at $35,490. This buys you 17-inch alloy wheels, a six speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, reversing camera, parking sensors front and rear, keyless entry, cruise control, sat-nav, auto headlights and wipers, puddle lamps, power windows and...Read more
Let's be honest for a moment - the old Peugeot 308 was a dud. It wasn't a bad car, but it wasn't a good one either, a real "that’ll do" car . Peugeot sold enough of them when the delusions of grandeur stopped and the pricing got sensible, but it was never cool. The company knew it, too – there wasn't a performance version, despite rumours to the contrary, and it probably didn't deserve one...Read more
The imminent departure of the Australian-made Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore has opened up an opportunity for imported cars to fill the gap – albeit a shrinking one as family buyers opt for smaller cars and medium SUVs. One of these contenders is the Peugeot 508, first sold here in mid-2011, as a replacement for two previous models, the slightly smaller 407 and the slightly larger 607. For 2015 the 508 has been given a...Read more
The launch of Peugeot's 508 sedan and wagon three years ago marked a return to mainstream styling. The big, frog-mouthed grille was ditched in favour of more restrained, conservative frontal look that was aimed to have wider appeal. After an initial flurry of activity, sales began to falter, falling to just 357 last year and leaving the car sitting fifth in its category — nowhere near the 1100 it sold in its first full year...Read more
We turn the spotlight on the car world's newest and brightest stars as we ask the questions to which you want the answers. But there's only one question that really needs answering, would you buy one? What is it? This 308 is the latest and greatest small hatchback from French manufacturer Peugeot. It's totally new from the tyres up - new platform, chassis, powertrains, styling inside and out, super efficient, lighter, safer. How much? 308...Read more
John Startari wants people to have an affair. The local boss of the French car importer, rather than spruiking a dating service, is talking about Peugeot’s need to have customers get up close and personal with its latest model — even if it is only for a cheeky run around the block. The car he’s touting is the Peugeot 308 compact hatch and wagon, a line-up bolstered by this week’s arrival of GT variants. Unlike...Read more
Not everyone, it would seem, wants a compact SUV on their drive. Sales of these 'quasi-fourbies' are through the roof but if you look at sales of the new Peugeot 308 Allure Touring (wagon) there may be life left in the traditional small family wagon. They've waxed and waned on the whim of consumers and right now, they're waning. But the new Pug wagon, with a classy, almost Audi look, could be a game changer...Read more
Peugeot has just announced a stove hot version of its potent little 208GTi called the 30th edition . But buying one might be problematic given the first batch has already been snapped up by eager punters. HERITAGE ...delightfully engaging three door hatchback with a cracking good engine developed in a joint venture with BMW. In the meantime, there's always the "regular" 208GTi, a sharp competitor in the rocket-powered roller skate class with direct links back...Read more
Peugeot 308 is an all-new model from the giant French car maker. Launched in Europe in 2013, and taking out the 2013 Car of the Year award in that continent, it finally reached us downunder in October this year. It looks good, drives well and is reasonably priced. Peugeot Australia is under a new management regime and they say the aim is to use the 308 as their main weapon to take back the ground...Read more

Peugeot's new generation 308 small car arrives this week with a $5000 price cut and a new three pot turbocharged petrol engine. Peugeot seems focussed on capturing more sales in Australia with its new model. They benchmarked VW's Golf and want Mazda3 buyers to consider the all new Pug small car, and that just might happen this time around. The new 308 won this year's European Car of the Year award with the company pointing...Read more
The Peugeot 508 is aimed at a difficult market segment in Australia, that of large family cars. To date sales of the Peugeot 508 have been modest, but that may change in early 2015 when a revised 508 arrives downunder. DESIGN Unusually in a facelifted model, the 508 has actually been increased in length, and the stylists have made it look slightly larger than it really is. Peugeot 508 now appears to be in the...Read more
