2022 Peugeot 308 price and release date

The all-new Peugeot 308 hatchback – the French firm’s rival to models like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus – is on sale, with the range kicking off with the £24,000 Active Premium model fitted with a 1.2-litre 130PS PureTech petrol engine. The same trim combined with Peugeot’s 130PS BlueHDi diesel costs £25,400.

Active Premium models get dark exterior highlights, 16-inch alloy wheels and LED lights front and rear. Interior kit includes a 10-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors and auto wipers.

Allure trim is next in line and can be had in combination with the 130PS petrol (£26,750), 130PS diesel (£28,150) or Peugeot’s 180PS petrol-electric PHEV (£33,000).

Allure models get 17-inch wheels and a more distinctive grille on the outside, while half-(fake)leather seats and ambient lighting makes them feel posher on the inside. You also get connected sat-nav – which can give live updates on things like traffic and fuel prices – front and rear parking sensors, plus a 180-degree rear camera.  

Allure Premium models (priced from £26,750 to £33,900) add active cruise control, wireless phone charging, plus wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

GT models are available with all the engines mentioned above, plus Peugeot’s range-topping 225PS petrol-electric PHEV. Prices range from £28,650 to £37,200.

GTs look overtly sporty thanks to 18-inch wheels, a chequered grille design and side sills. They also get matrix headlights, with distinctive ‘claw effect’ LEDs. The go-faster theme carries through to the inside where you get a 3D effect digital dashboard, drive select – with settings for the steering and throttle – and a heated steering wheel.

GT Premium models top the range and are limited to three engines – the 130PS petrol (£30,250) and the two PHEVs (£37,400 and £38,800). 

They get unique 18-inch wheels and a punchy Focal stereo. Inside, their seats are certified by Germany’s Aktion Gesunder Rücken (Healthy Back Campaign), are heated, have electric lumbar support and a massage function.

How much does a cambelt replacement cost?

When should the cambelt be changed on my Peugeot 308 and what should I expect to pay?
We recommend changing the belt, pulleys and water pump every 5 years or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first). The cost depends on two factors: who’s doing the work and the make and model of your car. It'll likely cost between £200 and £1000, depending on hours of labour, cost of labour, cost of parts etc. Typical cambelt replacement costs are in the region of £300 to £400 — but the most substantial part of your bill will generally be labour costs. These are high because changing a cambelt involves taking apart the engine block and putting it back together again, which can take a number of hours.

Which cars are torque converter automatics?

I want to buy a small estate car with a torque converter automatic. What do you recommend?
The Skoda Fabia Estate is the smallest estate car you can buy but that uses a dual-clutch DSG gearbox. If you're happy to consider a slightly larger car, a Peugeot 308 SW with the excellent EAT8 gearbox could be a good option.

The great rip-off continues - this time it's a small family hatch from a French mainstream, not prestige, manufacturer that starts at £24,000 without even hybrid tech.

Buy one outright or on finance at your peril - depreciation will be humungous and you'll pay for it in a finance deal as well as that will be part of the interest / final 'guaranteed value' charge calculation.

All this ridiculous car price inflation, hidden behind monthly finance payments, is not going to help anyone, and that includes the manufacturers who will be going to the wall when the Chinese start shipping cheaper EVs over here in greater numbers than they are already.
