A good mix of engines broaden its appeal further and make it another repeat winner."

Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, David Peel, said: “To be recognised once again by Carbuyer with the ‘Best Medium SUV’ award is a great honour. This is now the fourth year running the PEUGEOT 3008 SUV has taken home this award, which goes some way to show the model’s enduring popularity and ability to impress, despite a host of new rivals entering showrooms.

“In the coming year we will be undergoing a new electrification strategy which will also include the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4. We are all incredibly excited to see what the next year brings for PEUGEOT, and the continued recognition from Carbuyer fills us with confidence that we will be continuing to meet and exceed the needs of drivers.”
