Peugeot has in recent years, taken great steps forward in its production of quality, driver-friendly cars. The French company has sought to overcome negative accusations of dullness, and now creates cars that are both attractive and fun to drive. The range encompasses nearly every type of car you can imagine. From small city cars all the way up to 4x4 hybrid estates. There’s also a range of sporty models that hark back to the glory days of the iconic 205 GTI, which provide good competition to cars such as the VW Golf and the Audi TT.

Where Peugeot really excels is in its hatchbacks. The 108, 208, and 308, all offer good quality products in congested markets. The 108 is a very well rounded small city car, in direct competition with the Hyundai i10. It offers sharp handling and a feel of quality not matched by the Hyundai. It’s also available as a convertible for those looking to soak up the summer rays.
The 208 likewise is a very well built, slightly larger city car, in competition with the likes of the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa. It’s well designed, responsive, and has a good range of efficient engines. For those who want something a little bit different from the norm, the 208 is a great car to go for.
The 308 adds a touch more class, and a lot more space. With one of the biggest boots in its class, it’s one of the most practical options for family buyers. There’s also good ride quality, a top-notch interior, and a genuine prestige feel that’s good enough to challenge the leader of the pack, the VW Golf. As it’s quite a bit cheaper than the VW, the 308 is a great choice for frugal buyers who don’t want to compromise on quality.
Peugeot also offers a quality range of MPV/SUV crossovers - the 2008, 3008, and 5008, fit to rival any car in their class. The 2008, with its beautifully designed interior, ample boot space, and incredible value, make this an all-round good package. Designed to rival the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur, the 2008 arguably outdoes them both. The 3008 likewise is an exceptional family car. Built upon the same foundations of success as the 2008, the 3008 offers families that little bit of extra room. There’s also a hybrid option here for the eco-friendly family. The 5008 is refined, spacious, and has outstanding usability. With seven seats, the 5008 is a great option for the big family who enjoy a touch of class.
Playing on the iconic 205 GTI, Peugeot also offers a range of performance orientated cars. With a torquey engine and fantastic handling, the 208 GTI encapsulates the soul of the original 80s hot hatch. The 308 GTI likewise is attractive, fast, and practical. With enough power to seriously challenge the Golf GTI around a racetrack, and enough class to go with it, this is a seriously good car.
Completely different from these two hot hatches, is the RCZ coupe. Containing the world’s most powerful 1.6-litre engine, and a chassis designed by the same team that built the Peugeot Le Mans car, this a serious piece of engineering. It also feels great to drive. In competition with the Audi TT, the RCZ eclipses the Audi in terms of originality. At this level, the uniqueness and prestige of having one of the best-engineered engines ever under the bonnet, surely makes it an option well worth considering.
