Peugeot’s stunning new 308 has made it to the final seven models shortlisted for the prestigious European Car of the Year award for 2014.
The all-new Compact Family Hatchback was included on the original list of 30 candidates published in September 2013. Now the jury of respected journalists from across the continent has whittled that group down to the final seven, and the new 308 is still in the running.
Tim Zimmerman, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, commented: “This is an excellent and thoroughly deserved endorsement of the huge leap forward we have made with the new 308. Customers choosing the car can be confident in its outstanding driving dynamics, environmental credentials and quality.”
Peugeot’s performance in the European Car of the Year is strong, particularly with its Compact Family Hatchback models. The manufacturer has won the award three times since its inception in 1964, most recently with the 307 in 2002.
