Peugeot 308 - NZ Compact Car of the Year

Peugeot 308 Voted Compact Car of the Year in New Zealand at the AMI Autocar Magazine Car of the Year Awards 2008

The Peugeot 308 HDi hatch has been awarded the AMI NZ Autocar Car of the Year 2008, winning the Compact Car class.

In an increasingly competitive and important sector, the Compact Car Class was highly contested in 2008.

Paul Owen, Editor of Autocar Magazine, motoring journalist and chief judge for the awards says: "The 308 range possesses the great French characteristic of an involving chassis, thus appealing to drivers, while offering a distinguished ride, which ensures happy passengers."

"Here's substance and style unmatched by its rivals in the compact class."

"I could have stayed on the track all day in this, and Peugeot has really lifted its interior quality." Says Dave Moore, Editor of The Press, Christchurch.

The category winners were selected by the judges from new models launched in New Zealand between November 30th 2007 and November 30th 2008.
