Peugeot 308 VS Ford Focus, and the winner is

If there are two words that can describe Peugeot 308 and Ford Focus, it will be contrasting and alternative. Despite the fact that they have opposing characteristics, they are closely matched in different aspects. In terms of pricing Peugeot 308 is said to be winning the contest since the car is locally assembled. On the other hand, Focus is imported from another country which is a disadvantage for them. Both are producing about 140 hp but Focus is going for a bigger displacement which is good for an everyday driving.

What about the interior? Focus really stands out on this aspect as the cabin is where clean and well laid. On the other hand, 308 lacks in flair and style. However the materials being used in Focus appeared to be much lowered since they are assembled abroad. The front doors of Focus open and close just fine but the rear ones have thud sound on them. For the 308, the four doors can be close solid. In conclusion, the 308 is truly like driving a European pedigree with a lengthier list of features. Ford is emerging better from the test with regards on which car is better to drive since it combines better handling and ride. This is definitely a rare combination. At the end of the contest where you compare every aspect side by side, it is clear that the emerging winner is Peugeot 308.
