Peugeot 3008 Named Car Of The Year 2017

The Peugeot 3008 model has been named as Car of the Year 2017 by a jury of experts at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

In total, 58 journalists from 22 European countries made up the jury, which whittled down the options to seven finalists for the title.

The other cars in the running were the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Citroen C3, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Nissan Micra, Toyota C-HR and Volvo S90/V90.

However, it was the Peugeot that emerged the winner, with the jury looking at value for money, innovation, security and design when making their decision.

Hakan Matson, president of the jury, commented: “The jury recognises that the market share of SUVs and crossover cars has been steadily increasing. The Peugeot is a worth winner.”

This is the first time that an SUV has been awarded the coveted Car of the Year prize at the motor show.

Peugeot launched the new 3008 model at the beginning of 2017 and it has picked up numerous awards since then. Among its features are the state-of-the-art Peugeot i-Cockpit interior layout, which the company claims provides a “more intuitive and engaging driving experience”.

Within this i-Cockpit are a multi-function steering wheel, a 12.3” head up digital instrument display and an 8.0” capacitive touchscreen.

A recent review of the model in the Guardian described the SUV as “refined, resourceful and alluring”.

You could always make your Peugeot 3008 look even more special by investing in alloy wheels for the car once you’ve picked it up from the forecourt.
