Peugeot's innovative new people carrier, the Peugeot 5008, has been crowned What Car? MPV of the Year.
With its versatile seven-seat layout, the Peugeot 5008 has taken the genre to a new level, with good looks on the outside and a truly class-leading interior that welcomes passengers with both quality and space. They can also be specified to connect to the latest in-car entertainment systems through the perfectly integrated 7" screens and the connection console offering multiple connections, as well as Bluetooth.
Getting seated is easy, with a flat floor and three generous middle-row seats which slide and recline individually, as well as two comfortable rear seats. And with every individual passenger seat folding effortlessly into the flat floor, the Peugeot 5008 offers the perfect combination of seating and huge load-carrying capacity
With a range of punchy and refined engines with responsive steering and dynamic road holding, the Peugeot 5008 makes a long journey much more bearable for the driver and passengers alike, while excellent fuel economy means those journeys won't break the bank either.
No wonder What Car? described the Peugeot 5008 as "compelling" and a "convincing winner".
Speaking at the What Car? Awards ceremony last night at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, Jon Goodman, Managing Director of Peugeot Motor Company, said: "Everyone at Peugeot is delighted to have won the prestigious What Car? Car of the Year award with the 3008. Just like What Car?, our customers appreciate our designers' clever thinking, indeed so much so that we have had to significantly increase production to meet demand since its launch. No other car manufacturer has won this award more than Peugeot and it is a fantastic achievement at the start of the 200th year for the brand to win both the overall prize with 3008 and also the best MPV category with the new 5008. And with the highly anticipated RCZ coming to market later this year, we believe 2010 will prove to be a landmark year for Peugeot."Published 15 January 2010
