2017 has started as a good year for Peugeot, whose parent company PSA have just announced the acquisition of the General Motors subsidiary Vauxhall/Opel. The award was bestowed on the 3008 following a vote by 58 judges from 22 countries.
The European Car of the Year award is the 21st trophy for the 3008 in only 3 months – since it was launched at the start of the year. It also marks the first time an SUV has scooped the prize. The little brother of the 3008 – the 308 – won the same award back in 2014.
Peugeot boss Jean-Philippe Imparato said: “I am particularly proud and very pleased that the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV has just won the 2017 European Car of the Year prize. This trophy is the culmination of five years of incredible work by the brand’s teams and our group.”
The 3008 is the fifth Peugeot to win the award, the company claiming their first success back in 1969, when the 504 saloon came top.
Second place went to the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Mercedes E-Class came third.
