Peugeot 308 2018
Carsguide Contributing journalist Andrew Chesterton had this to say at the time: Seriously, it's cars like the 308 Touring (and the best from Skoda and others, to be fair) that make you wonder exactly how SUVs took such a stranglehold on the Australian market. It's super easy to drive and park, as practical as a rolling Swiss Army knife, and it looks pretty damn good to boot.You can read the full review here.
This is what Andrew Chesterton liked most about this particular version of the Peugeot 308: Super cool interior, Practicality plus, Looks and feels premium

Peugeot 308 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Peugeot 308 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What used car should I buy?
The newest car in the best condition with the fewest kilometres and the best record of service is normally the best. All are good cars and all should give you good reliable service, but using the above the Peugeot 308 would seem to be the best choice for you.
Is there any known problems with the timing chain on the 1.6 petrol turbo engine of a 2014 Peugeot 308?
While they say it never needs to be replaced that really refers to the requirement for servicing. Cam belts do have to be replaced regularly, cam chains don’t, but like all moving parts chains are subject to normal wear and tear and given time they will wear out. To have to change a timing chain at 70,000 km, however, is unusual, and you would suspect that something is wrong. There are reports of problems on the 1.6-litre petrol engine. I would press Peugeot to replace the chain free of charge.
What battery does a 2009 Peugeot 308 need?
It needs to be a 12-volt battery with a capacity of 700-750 cold cranking amps. It also needs to fit into the battery box and have the appropriate terminal alignment. Buy a good quality battery. Any battery retailer should be able to help you.
How does the Peugeot 308 compare to the Mazda 3?
They're quite different vehicles, the Peugeot is a roomy, comfortable, safe and pleasant wagon, and boasts 4.0 L/100km economy. The Mazda SP25 is a sedan or hatch, and a sportier drive with a firmer ride, and the 2.5-litre petrol engine offers an average of 6.0L/100km. If you're trying to choose which one to buy it comes down to what you want from your car, comfort and economy, or a sporty drive. Another thing to consider is maintenance costs and the Mazda scores there.
