I think it looks promising. Looks like the [email protected]$*!*d child of a Golf GTI and AMGcMerc A Class. With an estimated 278 BHP, it'll rub shoulders nudge with some of the big boys in the class. It does have another comedy steering wheel, this time looking like it belongs in Corgi model.

Its a bit strange, it looks very boy racer, but most boy racers who want a peugeot would get a 208 gti. I guess its for people trying to ween themselves off being one lol. I like it though :thumbup:

I must say that is actually a very good looking car. It sort of gets better and better the more you see it! :D

A dealership here nearby had a demoweekend of the new 308 so naturally i had to go test drive it today :D

Not the R ofc but the standard car :)

It was alright for a normal car really. The one i drove had the newly developed THP 125 engine which they said will be the big seller in the petrol range. Have to say it felt slow tho, but obviously i'm used to the RCZ so it's hard to tell. I think it actually was quicker than it felt.

Suspension was very soft but still very steady on the road. And the steering was so light! When i got into my RCZ afterwards it felt like there was no power steering at all in it! :lol:

It also had a new gearbox that revved almost 1000 RPM less than the RCZ at 120 km/h which was very nice for motorway driving.

All in all i thought it was a good car overall. The touchscreen is a bit stupid and unnecessarily complicated but otherwise it's fine. It's just lacking the 270 bhp and some more interesting styling i.e. the R..... :)
