Verdict

Thanks to a metal folding roof, the 308 CC is a convertible that can be used all year round. The roof itself neatly folds away in around 20 seconds with the push of a single button while a clever feature called Airwave blows warm air around the driver and passenger's necks, so you can have the roof down and stay warm even in the winter.

There are a good choice of engines including some nippy turbocharged petrols, but despite the striking looks, the 308CC is disappointing to drive with steering that lacks feel and a bumpy ride. Like other coupe cabriolets of this size, the rear seats are pretty much useless, except for luggage, while boot space is very limited with the roof down. Read on to see how the Peugeot 308CC compares with rivals like the Vauxhall Cascada and the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet.
