The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV, which has only recently been released, swept past established competition to sin the ‘SUV of the Year’ at the 2018 CCT100 awards, which took place in January at Café de Paris, London. This is the first year the awards have been held, following the launch of Company Car Today in 2017.
The seven-seat 5008 SUV is set to build on the success of the five-seat model 3008 SUV which launched at the start of 2017, it then claimed numerous awards throughout the year including ‘European Car of the Year 2017’.
“The all-new 5008 proves that SUVs can be stylish as well as practical and cost efficient, and Peugeot’s newest model manages all with equal aplomb,” said Company Car Today Editor Paul Barker. “It’s a striking car inside and out, has a broad range of model options and will handle whatever a company car driver wants to throw at it, both for work and play.”
“We know the 5008 SUV has great fleet appeal and to win an inaugural CCT100 award just as the car has gone on sale is a great start for our innovative new SUV”, commented Martin Gurney, PSA Group Fleet Director UK, “The 5008 SUV’s safety features, space and versatility, combined with tax-efficient low emission engines are tailor-made for the fleet sector.”
The 5008 success amongst business customers has been down to numerous of factors including the versatility of seven seats – with five having the option to be folded flat into the floor providing up to 2,150-litres of luggage space when needed. Other stand-out features include low emission Euro-6 petrol and diesel engines and cutting-edge driver assistance systems which have dramatically reduced insurance premiums compared to the previous model.
