Peugeot 308 hatchback - Reliability & safety
The 308 is so new that it’s too early to definitively rate it for safety or reliability
The latest Peugeot 308 is so new that it doesn’t have a Euro NCAP crash safety rating yet, nor can we provide any data from owners about what it’s like to live with but this will come with time, and since it’s based on well-known parts (the 1.2-litre petrol is used in lots of other models), it should prove easy to own and live with.
Peugeot 308 reliability
Peugeot came in 11th out of 29 manufacturers in the 2021 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey. The mechanically similar Peugeot 3008 SUV came in 50th place overall in the list of models. Both these results suggest owning a Peugeot should be reasonably problem-free.
Safety equipment is a strong point for the 308 and it’s likely to score well in its Euro NCAP test when this is carried out. All versions come with autonomous emergency braking (AEB), post-collision braking, lane keep assist, attention alert, parking sensors, speed limit warning and pedestrian detection as standard.
Higher trim levels get extra equipment, such as AEB with a night function, emergency call, high beam assist, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, lane positioning assist, a 360-degree parking camera and semi-autonomous parking assistance.
