Peugeot 308 Wins Women’s World Car Of The Year

The French model beat five other vehicles for the award.

The Peugeot 308 has been named the winner of the Women’s World Car of the Year competition in 2022, according to the female jury. This year, 56 female automotive journalists from 40 nations across five continents voted, with the winner being presented on International Women’s Day, “a particularly important occasion because it provides women a voice and because of the link between the automobile and personal autonomy in many countries.”

“The Peugeot 308 is a car that has almost everything you might want in a vehicle. It drives extremely well, and it’s hard to imagine most models have only a 1.2-liter engine under the hood “Sandy Myhre, a New Zealander, adds his two cents. As a reminder, the new 308 is available with a 1.2-liter turbo gasoline engine, a 1.5-liter diesel engine, and two plug-in hybrid alternatives, depending on the market. The traditional powertrains come standard with a six-speed manual transmission, with an eight-speed automatic transmission available as an option.
