Honest John Awards 2019: Peugeot 308 named Most Highly Rated Car

Published 02 May 2019

Most Highly Rated Car of the Year - Peugeot 308

The Most Highly Rated Car of the Year is based purely on Owners’ Reviews. The Peugeot 308 has consistently received praise by its owners, with drivers loving its excellent ride quality, frugal engines and quality interior.

David Ross, Editor of HonestJohn.co.uk said: “Peugeot 308 owners are clearly a very happy and satisfied bunch. The hatch 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.”

I note that the HJ site review still only gives the 308 four stars, highlighting its "Clunky manual gear change" - but this was very successfully addressed in the 2017 (?) facelift version. Perhaps the reviews should be re-viewed occasionally?

Unfortunately the Peugeot suffers from the age old problem of awful rubbery French gear changes., and the stupid small steering wheel. Quite nice looking but I wasn't allured to it after my test drive. I ended up buying a Mazda cx5, which is a far superior car.

When exactly did you test drive it, PH? My (2018) gear change is slick and positive. And I find the steering wheel set up is brilliant - why do you call it "stupid"?
