The Peugeot 308 is an award-winning, highly competent family hatchback with bags of contemporary style and edgy attitude.
First released in 2007, the Peugeot 308 is one of the most popular small family cars on the road. Available in diesel, petrol and hybrid engines, the Peugeot 308 has undergone a number of transformations since it first came on the scene.
A ‘facelift’ in 2011 saw changes to the front of the vehicle, while the release of the second-generation Peugeot 308 in 2013 welcomed an updated style and new features. Another update, known as T9, in 2017 included a newly designed bonnet and front bumper design, as well as a panoramic roof of most models. The most recent iteration of the 308 arrived in 2020 and offered a whole new range of colours and trims, as well the digital i-Cockpit.
Buying a Used / Second Hand Peugeot 308
Purchasing a second hand Peugeot 308 is a fantastic way to buy a top of the range model without blowing your budget. With an approved used Peugeot 308, you can be sure that the vehicle is fully tested and completely reliable.
When buying any used vehicle, it’s important to choose a vendor you can trust. While purchasing a second hand car from a private seller can be risky, buying a used 308 from an approved dealer gives you the security and confidence you need.
Furthermore, when you buy a used Peugeot 308 from an established and approved garage, you’ll have the option to choose from a wide range of models, trims and engine sizes. As the Peugeot 308 has been updated numerous times over the years, you’ll want to take a look at the various models and their accompanying features to decide which car is right for you.
