The new 308, launching late year, is crucial to Peugeot’s to throttle back on its daily volumes and set the brand up for long-term in residual values, according to UK boss Phil Robson.

wants to appeal to drivers are choosing a new VW Golf, claiming: the 308 we can confidently say it’s better a Golf – we have and the spec is incredible in comparison, we have reduced the weight and interior quality and driveability.

I’m confident to say that I’ve driven a Golf for weeks – the Golf is a car to drive but the 308 is better, Robson

The only thing that is not at this time is the RV. He claimed the RV between an old 308 and a Golf was £3000, and the gap has closed to £900 with the new

To expect an RV at the same level be ridiculous – the Golf has an legacy, but it will do 62,000 next year, Focus do 90,000 and the 308 17,000, he said. not caught on the gravy train of we think some of our competitors
