308 GT Premium – Last week I drove the Peugeot 308 GT Premium wagon. I have to say the design is simply gorgeous. Add this to the sleek 508 GT wagon and you see Peugeot designs beautiful cars. The GT Premium wagon is the top model in the range and with extra room throughout over the hatch I believe the best.
The 308 is powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine delivering 96 kilowatts of power and 230 Newton metres of torque. It is paired with the impressive eight-speed Efficient Automatic Transmission (EAT8).
On the road it drives well above what those figures may indicate as well as an almost limousine like ride..
Inside its sumptuous. Leather seats cocoon the occupants, the sports steering wheel and I Cockpit design allow for engaged driving style.
The digital driver instrument panel is 3d with the ability to configure it to the drivers desires. Along with this the central screen also has multiple configurability, perhaps too much.
In a world that is all about SUVs or EVs, having estates like the Peugeot 308 GT Premium is rewarding. It like art in many ways.
Priced from $50,490 its for buyers that appreciate beauty and something just a little bit different.

The Medium size wagon segment has all but been replaced by SUVs. That’s a shame.
