Our fleet: Peugeot 308 SW Allure BlueHDi 120 - July 2015

Our Peugeot 308SW has just passed the 10,000 mile mark. An important milestone, particularly in the leasing market.

When you look at most leasing offers, especially those aimed at cash for car buyers, it seems to be the standard mileage that is often quoted. My odometer suggests that it doesn’t take too many busy business months and a bit of holiday motoring to achieve that milestone.

What can’t be faulted is the choice of the 308SW as a company car, as it continues to perform well. I have been getting animated about suspension recently, as the ability of the Peugeot to smooth all but the roughest roads is a really important factor in making long journeys less tiring. I have regularly winced when spotting a pothole only for it to pass under the car with a barely audible thump and coffee unspilt.

I am also a fan of the i-cockpit combination  of smaller, lower steering wheel, higher  instruments and central i-pad style dashboard, which is lucky because the design is set to be rolled out across many more models according to a recent interview.

Peugeot project design director Pierre-Paul Mattei told Fleet News sister magazine Car: ‘We are going to go i-Cockpit on all models.’

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.

On top of the features common to all 3008s there are at least as many more that push it into the luxury status as you upgrade.
