After identifying the winning models in 6 separate categories (Urban Vehicle, Family SUV, Family Car, Large SUV, Sports Car, and 4×4), the 56 members of the jury will elect their final Women’s World Car of the Year in early March. The result of their vote will be announced around March 8th, International Women’s Day.

Two versions of the new Peugeot are available – a 5-door compact sedan and a station wagon. Designed to be highly efficient, the Peugeot 308 can be powered by low-emission gasoline options with 110 or 130 horsepower, a 130 horsepower diesel, as well as plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrains with 180 or 225 horsepower. A battery-electric vehicle (BEV) version will become available in 2023.

If the exterior design of the Peugeot 308 is appealing, its interior is also convincing, thanks to the special care taken with its quality, its latest-generation digital interfaces, and the unique ergonomics of the Peugeot i-Cockpit, recognizable by all with its compact steering wheel, which offers a more intuitive and direct driving experience.

“The fact that the new Peugeot 308 has been named best urban vehicle of the year 2022 by a jury made up exclusively of women, and from very different geographical backgrounds, demonstrates the relevance of Peugeot’s strategic choices,” said Linda Jackson, Peugeot CEO. “Its unique appearance, the excellence of its technology, the emotions felt while driving it and its range of engines, both electrified and internal combustion, make the Peugeot 308 an ideal choice for customers in every country in the world.”
