The vehicles are rated according to the following criteria:  budget for purchase and use, residual value, consumption, innovations and user benefits (quality, comfort, driving pleasure and design). When explaining their votes and the clear victory of the PEUGEOT 308, the members of the Trophées  de l’Argus jury highlighted its driving pleasure, its design, its quality and its remarkable ability to combine comfort and dynamism.

Grégory Pelletier, editor-in-chief of L’Argus said: “In the compact saloon category, the Peugeot 308 was the clear winner with the Argus jury. Style, quality of presentation, driving pleasure, comfort, technological equipment… the Mulhouse saloon has risen to the level of premium models in terms of performance.“

“I am extremely proud that the new PEUGEOT 308 has won this Argus Award: it is a high award from expert journalists who know how to judge cars. The 308’s seductive power leaves no room for doubt, and this Award proves that it also has the technological substance and qualities of a reference on the market. Customers agree: our new 308 has taken over the leadership of the C segment on the French market as of January 2022!” Linda Jackson – Managing Director of the Peugeot brand.
