First drive: Peugeot 308

Martyn Collins

The 308 is Peugeot's best-selling 3-series model, a range which dates back to 1932. After sales of over 3.2 million worldwide and with almost 229,000 finding homes in the UK alone, Peugeot has face-lifted its small family rival to meet the challenge from newer rivals such as the Ford Focus.

I headed to Cardiff to try them out and see if the 308 can still compete with the more modern rivals.
