I think the current pug range are some of the best looking motors on the road...
£26,000 for a 1.2L Peugeot hatchback is stretching reality a bit!! These RRPs are getting more and more like the DFS sales. You'd have to be off your head to pay £26k for this car. When we were shopping for a car we looked at the Ford Focus (which we didn't buy) and the dealer (can't remember which one) openly said they don't sell cars at RRP and showed us his screen with every single brand new car at about 20% off "list price". It's just a marketing ploy to make a £17k car look better value.
Evans Halshaw are awful as dealers. Won't respond to my calls...emails.... reimbursement owed to me..... absolutely awful. Never again.
This is nothing compared to my '94 Celica.

Think this is widely available at this price. pre-reg delivery mileage on a 19 plate (so sat for a while) available from just under £15k.

Agreed the new 208 in gt line is a little stunner... Makes the polo & A1 look old fashioned and creased.
Can't wait for the 508 GT to go down in price the new shape of course. Doesn't look like there's many deals for them
I looked at getting one of these a few years back, but in the end I decided I just couldn't live with the unconventional dash layout. It really did feel odd and the top of the steering wheel cut across the bottom of the dials.

Try before you buy I would suggest.

Shame really, it's not too bad in other respects.

Awesome car to live with. Much more fun the other cars I've had. Only thing I missed was a heat knob to whack up to full rather using the touch screen.

Had the SW for 4 years not a single issue. Just moved to a ford focus st line and it's nowhere near as good
Really nice cars and the engines aren't bad either.

Will depreciate faster than some other makes mind.

Avoid - other half leased one, fine for 18 months before the drive belt disintegrated - had it replaced and happened again, ripping other sections of the engine to pieces - took 7 months for the claim to be settled for a replacement car
Love my 308 SW, loads of room, comfortable, the 1.2l 3 cylinder turbo engine is a peach, £0 road tax, great spec even in Active trim. As mentioned, there ought to be a knob for the climate control (the touchscreen takes a while to initialise after starting) and the electronic handbrake/hill assist takes a little time to get use to if you are not familiar with that. Paid £12k for a pre-reg 0 miles one in 2016

Bloody annoying marketing ploy cus it puts company car tax up a load. So annoying paying BIK on list price when in reality no one pays it.
Still overpriced and 117mph / 9.1 sec 0-60 is abysmal for a so called performance model.
Looks good and all but that 0 - 60 time isn't great.

It's not a performance model - it's a 1.2 with sporty styling.

To be fair though, that 0-60 was about right for a performance model a few years back (XR3i etc), so not terrible.

I believe these have a wet timing belt, I'm not sure why this was done or the benefits gained. My brother works for EH and he's never seen an issue as long as the engine has been serviced regularly and with the correct oil otherwise the timing belt disintegrates...
As with so many cars, you get a motorcycle engine in a car. 1200cc and 130bhp lugging a ton of metal about. Bikes average about 4000 miles a year and cars average a lot more. I wonder what the long term reliability is going to be like. I would buy this and sell once the warranty expired.

I had the 1.6 tdi model. Just turned 3 years old and the aux belt crapped itself. Took to Peugeot who were pretty unhelpful. Got it sorted and the phoned me next day to say it was ready. I told him I would pick it up when I wanted as hired a Focus diesel and it was so much better in my eyes! Mine wasn't only one as the tensioners are notorious for failing and taking the belts with them.

I owned a 1999 1.2 Corsa which weighed about the same as this but had about 70 horse power. Small engine cars have been around for decades.

It's a GT model (grand touring) meaning it's supposed to be quick.
Funny you should mention XR3 as when I saw the performance figures that was exactly what I thought of too lol. 115mph and 9 seconds 0-60 if I remember correctly

It's supposed to be quieter, theres loads of reports of belts degrading even when properly serviced, bits fall of the belt and blocking the oil flow. Ford did it with one of their diesels that was a good engine with a chain and turned it into a disaster with the wet belt...stupid idea.

2 Points
A 1990's Corsa weighed 890Kg. The current 308 weighs 1200kg.
A 90's 4cyl low power petrol engine would go on for ever if cared for. My point is the modern 3cyl unit making 130hp is highly tuned and even allowing for technological advances won't be seeing 100k miles without a rebuild.

The servicing was done direct through Peugeot so I would have hoped it was done to their standards - may have just been unlucky, but I wouldn't touch another if it was free
Depreciation on this model is terrible. Nice engine/ specs though if you're not worried about that kind of thing... Definitely worth 16k ish
Great value. The 1.2 turbo is good enough for most daily driving. The cabin is a nice place to be my only criticism you need to use the touchscreen for the air con.
Replaced one of these with a Seat Leon last year, worlds apart, Leon wins hands down!
Lol

It's a GT-LINE which means it has sporty styling, many brands do the same, I think Audi were one of the first with S-LINE.

You didn't adjust it properly then. I'm 5ft11. My partner is 5ft9. Neither of us has any problems and we have had ours for 6 years now. The steering wheel doesn't obscure the dash. Big fuss about nothing by the motoring press.

We had a 208 with a 1.0 3 cylinder engine in it. Did 48000 miles in 3 years.

We replaced it with a 1.6 diesel 208 which is now at 79000 miles.

No problems with either of them.

Well you did as I suggested then. Kept the 1.0L till it was at half life then traded it on for an 1.6 L D engine that will do high mileage.
All I'm putting forward is that legislation is forcing engine manufacturers to push the design limits of the internal combustion engine. The results, IMHO and with evidence from sites like Honest John, is that longevity will suffer. There's nothing wrong with buying this car, but I would want it under manufacturer warranty. As an example, have a chat with a few car dealers trying to sell five year old 1.0 Ecotec Fords. They don't fly off the forecourts.

The latest crop of petrol engines are much more efficient than their older counterparts, and car chassis are also built much lighter these days. A modern 1200cc petrol engine should knock the socks off an equivalent 1.2 from say 10 or 15 years ago.

I've got that Puretec 1.2 Turbo in a 5008 mk2 - its a lovely engine. It's surprisingly ample for the 5008, even fully loaded. I can only imagine it would offer plenty of fun in a smaller car like the 208.

Wow exactly the same as me. I had the 308 gt line for 3 years just bought a St line and miss the lug so much. And yea the touch screen for heaters was a pain. I had the alcantra massage seats in mine, the massage function was crap but the seats were stunning. I liked the small steering wheel too.

The Timing belt was modified in 2017 so should be ok for fraying and dropping bits of the belt in the sump,agree though what a stupid idea running a belt in oil...

Give me and engine with 4 cylinders timing chain and multipoint injection....
