Peugeot 3008, RCZ Models Get Important Awards

Car manufacturers love awards basically because they lead to more sales, and more sales mean more money. So Peugeot should be pretty happy, as the French car manufacturer received two very important awards for its 3008 and RCZ models.

The RCZ Coupe, which is Peugeot’s answer to Audi’s TT, has been named the Most Beautiful Car of 2009 at the prestigious 25th International Automobile Festival. The distinction is very meaningful, as the winner is determined by the public’s votes. More that 33% of the 65,000 voters thought the RCZ is the Most Beautiful Car in 2009.

Another new Peugeot model, the 3008 SUV, was named “Car of the Year” by UK’s What Car? magazine. So Peugeot should be pretty happy, especially as car sales are going up all around the world and its new models are getting more and more attention.

“With its smart design, top-quality materials and commanding driving position, the 3008 makes you feel a bit special,”
said the publication. “Things are just as good when you turn the key, because the Peugeot is enjoyable to drive and impressively refined.

“A large, versatile boot, brilliant engine and competitive pricing add to the 3008’s considerable appeal. It’s undeniably classy and distinctive… The plush materials and build quality wouldn’t be out of place in an executive saloon, and give the 3008’s interior a classy feel.

”You need to drive the 3008 to appreciate the depths of its talent. The comfortable ride keeps everyone happy, while sharp handling and communicative steering mean you can enjoy the drive, too. So 2010 is the year of the 3008 – clever thinking and ultra-desirable, it’s another brilliant Car of the Year.”
