What is it?
The Peugeot 308, equipped with one of the French firm's new 'PureTech' petrol engines, a range of three-cylinder turbocharged and naturally aspirated powerplants. They'll eventually appear in models like the 108, 208 and 2008 crossover, but for now are confined to the 308 and its SW estate sibling.
Peugeot says its PureTech 1.2-litre engine can give you all the power of a 1.6, handy since it'll go on to replace the current 1.6-litre THP unit in Peugeot's range. It's tested here in e-THP 130 form, meaning there's 129bhp on offer, alongside 170lb ft of torque.
The real headline figures here though come with the car's fuel efficiency, with Peugeot tempting buyers with claims of 58.9mpg on a combined cycle and CO2 emissions of just 110g/km. All the while, the 308 must also live up to its Car of the Year credentials in offering a premium and stylish driving experience.
