The win is the 66th award for the Peugeot 3008 SUV, making it one of Peugeot’s most successful models. Unlike many other awards which rely on editorial judging panels, the Auto Trader New Car Awards are decided by more than 63,000 real car owners who voted via a survey.
Drivers review vehicles in 16 different criteria, ranging from reliability and performance to running costs, to give potential buyers a complete picture of ownership.
Consumers are also asked about their overall satisfaction with their car and how likely they would be to recommend the model to others. The Peugeot 3008 SUV beat a number of key rivals for the title, including the Hyundai Ionic, Skoda Octavia and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Owners rated the Peugeot 3008 SUV highly in a range of areas, including its design, interior practicality and its innovative tech, including the Peugeot i-Cockpit® infotainment system.
Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s New Car Editorial Director, said: “The Peugeot 3008 SUV was a stand-out winner and has been highly commended for how comfortable and safe it feels when driving, as well as the quality of its interior and its good looks”.
“Owners were quick to highlight the quality of the technology that comes as standard and its features and accessories. It’s a fantastic all-rounder and a wholly worthy winner of New Car of the Year.”
David Peel, Peugeot UK Managing Director, said: “Certain awards stand out for us in the industry. Any award based on owner feedback is extremely important for us and it’s fantastic to see so many owners praise their Peugeot 3008 SUV. Our commitment to building vehicles that feature uncompromising quality, an instinctive driving experience and sharp design is clearly paying off.”
The New Car of the Year award is just the latest in a range of accolades won by the Peugeot 3008 SUV, including Carbuyer’s ‘Best Medium SUV’, ‘Mid-Size SUV of the Year’ in the 2019 Fleet News Awards and ‘Best Mid-Sized SUV’ in the 2019 Driver Power survey.
