Peugeot 5008 SUV WhatCar Best Large SUV

The What Car? awards are highly sought after and often described as the “Oscars of the motoring world”.

Peugeot have gone on to win the What Car? Car of the Year award more than any other car manufacturer. 

The first win was in 1979 with the Peugeot 305 winning Car of the Year, which was then succeeded by the Peugeot 205 GR in 1984. The Peugeot 306 then won the same award in 1994 and then in 1996 the Peugeot 406 scooped it again. In 2010, the Peugeot 3008 Crossover was crowned Car of the Year, topping the competitive Crossover category.

More recently, the unique new generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® driving environment of the 3008 SUV won the Technology award at the 2017 awards, and the all-new 5008 SUV won the Best Large SUV award at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2018. Our latest seven-seat SUV beat off its rivals by impressing judges with its premium feel and competitive price


Peugeot 2008 SUV Driver Power Award

We’re delighted that our popular 2008 SUV was awarded the 2017 Auto Express Driver Power Best Small SUV

On presenting this award, Auto Express Driver Power stated “Small SUVs have to strike a careful balance between practicality, frugal running costs and agile driving to suit the urban environments in which they’re often used.  The Peugeot 2008 SUV has done exactly this and has beaten more established competitors to the title in this competitive sector.

 In addition, Steve Fowler editor-in-chief of Auto Express stated  “The 2008 SUV’s gold award in the small SUV category shows how happy customers are with modern Peugeots, and shows that the brand has a clear understanding of its customers’ needs and desires.


Peugeot 3008 SUV Auto Express Award

The Auto Express New Car Awards set out to identify the top cars to buy in each automotive area.

Automotive journalists and testers assess over 1,100 cars a year and Auto Express provides these reviews to their large readership. The Auto Express website is one of the UK’s biggest motoring websites, providing news, features and reviews and is the UK’s biggest-selling motoring publication.

In 2012, Peugeot celebrated a double award win at the Auto Express New Car Awards, with the Peugeot 208 winning the Best Supermini class award – even before its UK launch. The now-retired Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupé also won the Best Coupé Class in both 2011 and 2012.

Announcing the results of its 2017 Awards, Auto Express named the Peugeot 3008 SUV the winner of the much fought-over Mid-Size SUV category, beating all of its competitors.

Judges had lots to praise about the Peugeot 3008 SUV, but singled out its premium design, both inside and out, 'upmarket feel' and features such as the state of the art PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® interior layout.


The Peugeot RCZ best used sports car

Three years after its production ended, the Peugeot RCZ is still winning accolades. Our popular sports coupe has scooped the award for the ‘Best Used Sports Car’ in the Diesel Car Magazine Used Car Top 50 (formerly known as the Diesel Car Used Car of the Year awards) and even more impressively, has also been included in the list of the top 15 best used cars overall. The awards judge vehicles that are more than three years old.

Available between 2010 and 2015, the RCZ Coupe was praised by Diesel Car for its intelligent design and stylish looks – including its distinctive double bubble roof. This latest award adds to the multiple titles that the Peugeot RCZ won in its lifetime, including Diesel Car’s ‘Best Sports Car’ for an incredible five consecutive years.
