This is the car that put PEUGEOT back in the fleet game.” Fleet News noted that since its launch in 2017, the 3008 SUV has proved its worth as a reliable, cost-effective and desirable model.

Martin Gurney, Groupe PSA Fleet Director commented: “This is a great accolade from judges with extensive experience of what makes a fleet car stand out. Cost of ownership, desirability and practicality are important factors for all car buyers. We are very excited to have won this award, which recognises the hard work that has gone into making the 3008 SUV such a success.”

The PEUGEOT 3008 SUV has proved to be a great success, with almost 48,000 sold in the UK. To date, the 3008 SUV has won 65 international awards, including 19 in the UK.
