The Peugeot 308 won European Car of the Year in 2014 but can this stylish hatchback live up to the hype of its predecessor? Can it outscore the 2016 winner, the Vauxhall Astra, or other popular hatchbacks such as the Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus. Is it worth getting the base model with its cheap, tempting price tag, or is it better to upgrade? Have Peugeot’s exterior quality transferred over to the interior cabin, and can it pass the infamous carwow flick test?

This is the Car Buyers Guide 2017 Peugeot 308 review - we look at the facelift and the BlueHDi 130 1.5 litre diesel engine. Daragh Ó Tuama visited the Bavaria region of Germany and Austria to test drive this car. This facelift Peugeot 308 is due to hit the market in Ireland in late 2017. Since the Peugeot 308 was first launched, the manufacturer has managed to shift a whopping 760,000 units. The launch of the new Peugeot 3008 showed us the new iCockpit, an updated version of an already advanced system. Now it's the Peugeot 308's turn to sample the latest generation of iCockpit along with new safety technology, new infotainment systems, and a better-than-ever engine line-up. On the outside, this would appear to be a very mild facelift. There are some minor changes to the exterior, but it will take the eagle-eyed of you to notice. The LED lights have been updated and they now all have the Peugeot 308 LED signature incorporated into the headlights - however, it'll only be the upper-end models that offer full LED lighting. The bottom three levels will benefit from new halogen elliptical module headlights. There is now a new bumper to the front of all models. The lower three trims (Access, Active and Allure) will share one of the new bumper designs, while GT Line, GT and GTi will share a different bumper. We focused mainly on the diesel offerings - it looks like the volume seller in Ireland will be the new BlueHDi 130. While there is a shift towards petrol (27% in 2016 to 39% to date in 2017 across the Peugeot range in Ireland), diesel will remain the volume seller for 2017 at least. The BlueHDi 130 will feature for the very first time in the new Peugeot 308. We're told that this digitally designed 1.5-litre engine involved the registration by PSA Group of over 200 new patents. It offers 10hp more than the outgoing BlueHDi 120. On-paper it offers a fuel consumption gain of between 4% and 6%. The emissions are reduced because the pollutants get treated at source and in the exhaust pipe. We drove this engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The gear changes I felt were a little on the clunky side, but it's not off-putting. What was annoying on our road test in this model was that we had to stop half way through our drive because an AdBlue warning light came up on our dash along with a warning to get the engine fixed. This would normally be a very worrying sign, and thankfully this is one of the few times where I've experienced such a thing happen on a launch drive. We asked Peugeot to explain the problem to us - the reason, according to Gaëtan Demoulin, Head of Product Communications for Peugeot in Europe, was human error. It seems that nobody checked the AdBlue levels of our vehicle before we started out test drive. I suppose what irked me most about this was that I think the car should have warned us that the AdBlue levels were falling in advance of the car telling us to pull over. In fairness to the manufacturer, this was a pre-production model and now is the time to find faults, if any (before mass production). This should not be a problem in full production models and I know that because of our test drive, all test cars with AdBlue were checked. Next up on my test drive was the 2.0-litre Peugeot 308 GT BlueHDi 180. This featured an exclusive EAT8 automatic gearbox (which mirrors the appearance of the automatic gearstick in the 3008) which was developed with input from the Japanese specialists, Aisin. Apparently, it allows a 7% reduction in fuel consumption when compared with the EAT6 automatic gearbox. The new 8-speed box changes fluidly within the 180hp car, and did leave me feeling impressed. Couple the dynamic gear changes with the car's "Sport" mode, and you get an enjoyable ride. However, while I do like the artificial noises that come with the "Sport" mode, I must say that they over-do it a bit in the burble department! On both models that I tested, I found body control on corners to be good, and the ride and sound insulation in general was refined. Prices for the new 2017 Peugeot 308 are yet to be announced for Ireland.

Peugeot 508 SW 2019 vs Volvo V60 2019 - Which is Better? Music Source: https://www.youtube.com/c/NCMEpicMusic
The battle of the French hatchbacks is as varied and unique as one might expect. The Citroen C4 Cactus features unconventional and quirky design at the cheapest price. Whilst, the Renault Megane offers premium feel and technology but with the steepest price. The Peugeot 308 sits in-between the two in terms of cost, offering a blend of premium touches, and practicality. However which is the best value for money? Which car is fun to drive, as well offering the practicality one might need. I explore all the Renault Megane, Peugeot 308 and Citron C4 Cactus have to offer, and pit them against one another to decide which hatchback reigns supreme in this Head2head video!

Peugeot 308 1.5 BlueHDI 130 GT Line 2017 Review
Peugeot’s mid-life facelift for the 308 hatchback is one done mostly by the book: a tweak of the grille, bumper and headlight styling here, an upgrade for the infotainment system there, and the cramming in of more safety kit and standard equipment, all for a slightly reduced price.
If the 308 seems to have jumped up a long way in price, it may be because the old entry-level trim, Access, has been deleted, because very few Brits, as it turned out, wanted an £18,000 308 with steel wheels, ‘workout’ rear windows and no alarm as standard. Prices across the rest of the range have falled by an average of £650, which is quite generous given the extra kit you’re getting (we'll come to that later).
