Peugeot 308 Hatchback

The Peugeot 308 Hatchback looks like a great mid-sized hatchback.For around the $22k, the Peugeot 308 Hatchback Allure can be yours.  With car manufacture being not so much associated with the country of origin, the global game has paid dividends for the new car buyer.  Cheaper labour in certain parts of the world has forced the price of a new car downwards.  A decade ago, it would have been hard to grab yourself a nicely equipped hatch for under $30k.

A new Peugeot 308 hatchback goes head-to-head with a Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Pulsar, Mitsubishi Lancer Hatch, Mazda 3, Kia Cerato, Honda Civic, Hyundai i30, Holden Cruze, Ford Focus, Citroen C4, Audi A3 and Alfa Romeo Mito.  Now that’s an extensive list which is not exhausted.  What makes a car stand out from the rest of the competition?  It has to be good to get a buyer.

What the new Peugeot 308 Hatchback does have is a lot of style both inside and out. Once you slip inside a new Peugeot, there is a definitive edge to the flair and level of finish.  Boasting a fresh 2014 European car of the year award, the new 308 Hatchback obviously has made some eyebrows rise in the northern hemisphere.  It looks good for a start; when you glance over the sleek hatch design, it’s the shape of the headlights, the flowing lines, the nice alloys, and the tucked rear-end is all finished in an artistic flow of the pen.  Style, flair and balance go hand-in-hand.  In the interior, it is the different shapes, lines and textures of the dash and switchgear that make the 2015 308 Hatchback something unique and very special.  It certainly is a car that you enjoy driving, and the cabin is an attractive and comfortable place to be.  The layout of the dash and instrumentation is simple and eye-catching, and a large 9.7-inch colour touch screen houses a lot of the car’s onboard technology.  Again, I’ll go on about awards, but the 308 was awarded the Most Beautiful Interior Design of the Year for 2013 at the International Automobile Festival.

Room is good for even tall adults.  There is a nice dual-zone climate air-conditioning system to keep the temperature balanced for all occupants.  A multimedia infotainment system boasts a beautiful sound system, Bluetooth and live streaming.  Boot space is handy, and can be extended with the split-folding rear seats laid flat.  The new 308 offers one of the most generous boot volumes for a mid-size hatch (435 litres rear seats up, 1274 litres rear seats down).  A selection of high-quality seats will keep you comfortable and give the driver plenty of adjustment for their optimum driving position. The Peugeot 308 Hatchback offers a nice Metax Mistral cloth for Access and Active models.  The Allure has a distinct and stylish Marston Mistral cloth.  If you like the look of the Allure Premium or GT package, the seats in these 308 Hatchbacks boast Mistral Alcantara cloth and leather accented trim.  Both the Allure Premium and the GT models come standard with front seats that boast an electric massage function.  Full leather seats look amazing and are an option on Allure, Allure Premium and GT models.  Heated front seats are feature of the leather seats.

peugeot-308-hatchback-2013-interior_0_0What makes the new 308 Hatchback move is a quality range of engines that are powerful and frugal.  Class leading performance and economy is promised from the standard petrol engines (96 kW, 4.6 litres/100 km and 110 kW, 6.5 litres/100 km). There is also the excellent Allure HDI motor that puts out 110 kW and a lusty 370 Nm of torque.  The HDI sips around 4 litres/100 km.  If you want pure performance, then the 308 GT is the one to go for.  A 133 kW HDI engine powers this enjoyable drive, while the 151 kW petrol engine packs a powerful punch.
