The PEUGEOT 308 has won the ‘Highly Rated’ award at the 2019 Honest John Awards. Based solely on feedback from Honest John readers, the ‘Highly Rated’ accolade is awarded to the model which has received the highest number of positive reviews on the HonestJohn.co.uk ‘Owners’ Reviews’ page over the past 12 months.

Owners of the PEUGEOT 308, five-door hatchback, praised a range of attributes, including its low maintenance costs, good fuel economy and Dealer network, as well as the enjoyable driving experience. The accumulative reviews have provided the PEUGEOT 308 with a 5/5 rating, the highest mark possible through the Honest John ‘Owners’ Reviews’.

Popular among drivers and industry experts, the PEUGEOT 308 has received a series of accolades since its launch, including the 2014 ‘European Car of the Year’ title.

Running for almost 20 years, the Honest John Awards feature 19 key automotive categories, including City Car, Family Car, EV and Crossover, last year awarded to the PEUGEOT 3008 SUV.

The latest edition of the PEUGEOT 308 was launched in 2017 and features the latest generation infotainment system and innovative PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, along with advanced driver assistance systems including Speed Limit Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control with stop functionality and Active Blind Spot Monitoring.

David Ross, Editor of HonestJohn.co.uk said: “PEUGEOT 308 owners are clearly a very happy and satisfied bunch. The hatchback has received an array of five-star reviews from owners who describe it as an ‘underrated stunner’ and praise its build, reliability and economy. The PEUGEOT brand is on the up in the UK, producing some impressive models - and the 308 has certainly found favour with owners.

David Peel, Managing Director at PEUGEOT UK, said: “It is always a privilege to be recognised by Honest John, and receiving the ‘Highly Rated’ award is a real testament to the PEUGEOT 308’s low running costs, practicality, reliability and enjoyable driving dynamics. The continuing positive feedback we receive from Honest John readers in their ‘Owners’ Reviews’ is a testament to both our Dealer network and the 308 itself.”
