Award Wins for Peugeot 208 and 2008
Added: 18 March 2020
This month, the all-new Peugeot 208 has been awarded the ‘Best Small Car’ and the all-new 2008 SUV won ‘Best Compact SUV’ at the 2020 Fleet News Awards!
Both the Peugeot 508 and 3008 SUV were also highly commended in the 'Best Upper Medium' and 'Best Mid-Size SUV' categories respectively.
Launched in January 2020, the all-new 208 is the first model in Peugeot’s range to be released under the new philosophy of ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain’ and is available as a full electric vehicle or with both efficient petrol and diesel engines.
Judges were particularly impressed with the technology and low running costs of the all-new Peugeot 208, making it a strong proposition for businesses and company car drivers.
The all-new 2008 SUV was launched in February 2020 and was praised by Fleet News for its modern and distinctive styling, and high-quality interior. The spacious new model measures 4.3m long, 1.77m wide and 1.55m high, with a maximum boot capacity of 1,467 litres.
Both models feature the latest-generation 3D Peugeot i-Cockpit® with a compact multifunction steering wheel, a configurable 3D head-up display panel and either a 7” or 10” HD capacitive colour touchscreen. Further technological aids included are:
Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function (depending on trim)
Lane Positioning Assist
Mirror Screen® offering Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto connectivity
Martin Gurney, Director Fleet & Used Vehicles, Groupe PSA UK said: “We are all incredibly proud to have the all- new Peugeot 208 and 2008 SUV recognised in such high regard by Fleet News.
The Fleet News Award are the latest accolades to be bestowed on both the product and the brand. In 2019 Peugeot was named as J.D Power's most reliable brand and earlier this month the all-new Peugeot 208 was named European Car of the Year 2020.
