    The Peugeot 3008 is one of them. But as a car’s main driver is likely to be the chief decision-maker, it’s fortunate that the driver has the most to shout about. For the 2014 model year Peugeot has updated the car with a new face, a smattering of extra kit and – wait for it – price reductions. It’s not much in the grand …

    UK Drive: Peugeot RCZ R

    PEUGEOT has dabbled in motorsport for decades, most notably with Group B rallying and Le Mans racing. But recently the experts at Peugeot Sport haven’t exactly had a lot on. On that basis you could argue that the RCZ R, the fastest and most powerful production car the firm has ever built, has genuine racing DNA. The …

    First Drive: Peugeot 308

    PEUGEOT hasn’t had the best of luck in recent years. However, with the RCZ sports coupe and 208 supermini, Peugeot appears to have turned a corner. And where the previous 307 and 308 models were lacking in certain areas, this latest 308 promises to continue the upward trend set in motion by the RCZ and 208.

    ENGINES - A modest range, including the diesel and petrol units in familiar sizes awaits prospective 307 owners. For low mileage town use it's rarely worth opting for diesel, but if you plan on racking up the miles, one of Peugeot's very good oil burners is well worth it.

    RECENT years have seen Peugeot step out of its design comfort zone by a considerable margin, what with cars like the 407 Coupe, 208 and 3008. It’s not been a path paved entirely with gold, however. For every hit there’s also been the occasional aesthetic miss. Still, for a company doing battle with the likes of the ultra-successful …

    YOU CAN have it all these days.

    First Drive: Peugeot 208 GTi

    CAN THE 208 GTi survive an entire road test without unfair comparisons to its much-lauded stablemate? It should do; the 205 GTi was certainly one of if not the finest hot hatch of the 1980s and even into the 1990s, but things were very different back then. As wonderful as the 205 was, it did without any kind of electronic …

    French Fancy (Peugeot 207 2006-2012)

    ENGINES – Peugeot, along with its French rivals, might be famous for raising the stakes in the diesel market, but there’s a lot to be said about the petrol engines that power the firm’s 207 supermini.

    THERE’S no greater pressure than being a success. Just ask Peugeot, who face the unenviable task of creating a supermini that lives up to the legacy of the 205.

    THE CONCEPT of a hybrid vehicle is no longer new.
