Peugeot 301 is a Compact Car that was started to be produced by the French car manufacturer Peugeot in 2012 and is still being produced. The PSA PF1 platform on which the car is built is also the basis for the Citroen C-Elysee. The 301 was generally planned as a low-cost family or company fleet vehicle rather than a luxury. The name of the car was actually used for the car that was previously produced in 1932. However, with the new generation, Peugeot revived the 301 nameplate. Although it has a very simple and standard design concept in terms of interior and exterior design, it can be said that it has modern lines. The design was updated with a facelift process in 2017, and the new 301 continues to appear in companies' fleets and in many parts of the world.
