Ireland’s Car of the Year, the Peugeot 3008 SUV, has scooped gold in both the Car of the Year and Mid-Size SUV categories, topping the polls as the Best Car to Own in the latest Auto Express Driver Power survey.
The latest awards from the UK’s largest and most in-depth automotive customer satisfaction survey have been added to Peugeot 3008's collection of international accolades. It brings the total to 45 international titles bestowed on the Peugeot 3008 SUV globally since launch, among which are European Car of the Year 2017, and the current Irish Car of the Year 2018.
With participation from more than 80,000 car owners, customers ranked the Peugeot 3008 SUV as the best performing mid-size SUV in five of the nine Driver Power judging categories: exterior; practicality and boot space; ride and handling; safety features; and reliability and build quality. The victory did not stop there as the 3008 SUV was rated the best vehicle in the ‘exterior’ category and the ‘safety feature’ category, across all of the vehicle classes, before it took the overall Car of the Year top spot.
Since its launch in late 2016, the 3008 SUV has been a huge success for the Peugeot brand, with more than 350,000 units sold worldwide. It brings to market the latest technology with its unique Peugeot i-Cockpit®, offering a more intuitive and engaging driving experience, thanks to a compact steering wheel, head-up digital instrument display, and capacitive touchscreen.
