I LOVE the seven-seater Peugeot 5008 SUV and the small five-seater Peugeot 2008 a little bit too much so you can understand why I was EXTREMELY excited to pick up this very attractive 2023 Peugeot 308 GT can't you?!…

The Peugeot 308 is a hot-looking little five-seater car. Its low-slung green exterior makes you want to get in and drive. Let’s find out how good it is as a BabyDrive…

Affectionately named “froggie” by my two-year-old (more to do with the colour than insulting the French people who made it), the gorgeous green exterior of the car I tested continues with details in the interior with contrast stitch details on the doors, dash and steering wheel to match the paint colour…

…and in the media screen and driver's display panel.

The seats are super comfy and the interior is minimal and modern.

When it comes to family practicality the Peugeot 308 a pretty good. In the rear seats, there are ISOFix points in both the outer rear seats, they are behind beautifully concealed zips…

..and top tether anchorages on the back of all three rear seat backs.

Two Infasecure child seats nicely in the back of the Peugeot 308. I installed the Infasecure Attain More and Achieve More.

With a rear-facing child seat behind the driver's seat, legroom is very minimal; I can only just sit in front of a rear-facing Attain More and I’m 162cm! However, with forward-facing child seats, we can fit a 186cm passenger in front of them.

If you have one child in a car seat, then there is room next to it for two older kids to sit beside it comfortably.

When it comes to storage, the Peugeot 308 is quite minimal, especially in the back, with just small net map pockets that will hold but not conceal an iPad.

A small phone shelf is in the back of the central console box and door bins will hold a water bottle.

In the front things are more generous with two cup holders that will hold a reusable or disposable coffee cup.

A wireless phone charging pad and a tray below it with a USB socket are provided and the generously sized central console box will hold a large water bottle or, in VERY French style, a wine bottle!!

The glove box is a good size to hold a wallet and iPad and the door bins are large enough in the front for a large refillable water bottle and iPad.

Storage in the boot of the Peugeot 308 is good, holding ten bags from empty. That’s comparable to the Volkswagen Golf which also holds ten shopping bags and Honda Civic which holds thirteen shopping bags.

The boot will also comfortably hold a twin side-by-side pram…

…or a double modular pram.

The air-conditioning settings are controlled through the media screen and I did struggle with the lack of real buttons, especially in the Australian summer climate.  I still prefer real buttons and dials for this but the latest Peugeot system isn't too bad.

The reversing camera image is nice and clear and the birds-eye view helps when parking and manoeuvring.

Driving the Peugeot 308 is great as it's nippy and responsive, it has light steering and a tight turning circle which makes it especially good in school and supermarket car parks.

The 2023 Peugeot 308 has a four-star ANCAP safety rating and has six airbags as standard.
