Published Date: 15th Apr 2017
The new Peugeot 3008 SUV was been named the 2017 ‘Car of the Year’ at the Geneva Motor Show by 58 European journalists.
The new 3008 SUV managed to impress judges with its combination of interior cabin design, style and performance. This great trophy joins the 20 other honors the new 3008 SUV has already won since its launch at the beginning of 2017. The 3008 is the fifth car from Peugeot to win this award and the first SUV/Crossover to be given this accolade. The French car maker’s success in this award goes way back to 1969, when the then new 504 saloon won the award.

The Latest Peugeot 3008 makes a big jump in technology with its state of the art PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® interior layout that offers a more intuitive and engaging driver experience, complete with a new multi-function steering wheel, 12.3” head-up digital instrument cluster display and an 8.0” touchscreen which is wrapped with stylish satin chrome and piano key toggles. Peugeot has also given the new 3008 a number of new driving aids and other high-tech gadgets, as well as seamless connectivity. Almost 100,000 customers have already ordered the new 3008 SUV/Crossover in Europe and 84% have gone for the Allure, GT Line or GT trim models.
