Comments

The 1.2 liter engine in the Peugeot 308 shares many characteristics with other small petrol engines. In this case, high CO emissions lead to zero points in the highway test. NOx is very well managed with a warm engine, but a cold engine start pushes the emissions one order of magnitude higher, costing the Peugeot points.

Energy Efficiency is the part of the assessment where the Peugeot scores best. Both WLTC+ tests score about half of the possible points while the BAB130 highway test pulls the overall efficiency rating down a little with consumption of approximately 8 liters per 100 km, resulting in a total of 4.7 out of 10 possible points.

Comments

The Greenhouse Gas Index is based on a Well-to-Wheel+ approach, meaning that the greenhouse gas emissions related to the supply of the energy are added to the tailpipe emissions. The result is a total of nearly 170 g/km CO2 equivalent for the WLTC+ tests and 222 g/km CO2-equivalent in the BAB130 highway test, leading to an overall result of 3.2 out of possible 10 points in the Greenhouse Gas Index. The robust control of laughing gas and methane contribute maximum points in the highway test and help the Peugeot offsetting the negative scores of CO2 emissions.

Our verdict

The Peugeot 308 brings a very common engine with 1.2 liters to the table. Like other smaller petrol engines, the three-cylinder power unit gets in trouble under constant high load where it emits very high amounts of CO. Although the car is equipped with a GPF, better control of particle emissions and carbon monoxide in high power demand phases would immediately help the small car reach a significantly higher result. The vehicle scores moderately well in the Energy Efficiency and Greenhouse Gas Indexes, leading to an overall rating of 2 stars.
