The all-new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV had a successful night at the Fleet News Awards 2020, taking home one of the ceremony’s top accolades - 'Best Compact SUV' of the year. Both the PEUGEOT 508 and 3008 SUV were also highly commended in the 'Best Upper Medium' and 'Best Mid-Size SUV' categories respectively.
PEUGEOT‘s electrification strategy will see a full electric model range available by 2023. 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.
The all-new PEUGEOT 208 and 2008 SUV 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 and 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 2008 SUV recognised in such high regard by Fleet News. The new model only went on sale in the UK this year, so it is great to see them off to such a great start.
“Both of our outstanding new models offer businesses and drivers the option of switching to electric, with enough mileage to cover all driving requirements. We look forward to seeing how the all-new PEUGEOT 208 and 2008 SUV are received by drivers as we make further additions to our range to encourage an electric revolution.”
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.
