Steve Howarth’s Testdrive – PEUGEOT 308 GT Hybrid
50 Plus Magazine

2w ago
SPORTY versions of family cars have been on our roads for decades and created a whole new category of vehicle – the hot hatch. Think Golf GTi, Escort XR3i and Peugeot 205GTi which all became motoring icons and the tradition continues today with Peugeot’s latest 308GT. I got to try out the hybrid version that has a 1.6 turbo petrol engine and electric motor which, working together, deliver 180bhp giving a sprightly 0 to 62 time of 7.6 seconds and top speed of 139. There is an even more impressive 225bhp model which shaves a little off the 0 to 62 time but delivers less electric only range. How ..read more

Power train wise there are two full hybrid choices starting with a 138bhp 1.8 petrol engine then a 194bhp 2.0.

GETTING to try new cars before they hit UK roads is one of the perks of this job and recently it was a double treat as BMW launched their new iX2 and partner company Mini the latest Countryman models. In glorious Cotswolds countryside I got behind the wheel of both cars to see just how comprehensive the changes are on these best-selling models from both manufacturers. First it was the Countryman in exciting John Cooper Works All4 guise. Now this is the range-topping version priced at a shade under £40k, which seems a lot for a Mini but it is a lot more car than Minis of old being SUV sized an ..read more
