New Peugeot 208 celebrates two wins at Auto Express awards

Peugeot has been awarded two key awards at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2012 at a ceremony at the Grand Connaught Rooms, in London.

The Peugeot 208 wins the Best Supermini Class. editor-in-chief of Auto Express, Steve Fowler, said of the 208; “Peugeot is back on top of the small car class. The 208 has got it all: style, quality, space and kit, while it’s good to drive and super-efficient, too.”

The Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupé wins the Best Coupé Class. Steve said; “The RCZ continues to reign supreme as the best coupé on the road thanks to its winning blend of great styling and agile handling. Even better, it's much more affordable than its looks suggest.”

Tim Zimmerman, managing director at Peugeot UK, said; “This is a great week for Peugeot. In the first week that the new 208 goes on sale in the UK, we are especially pleased to receive this key award. The Auto Express Best Supermini award is the 208’s first international product accolade and recognises its lead position in the highly competitive small car sector. We are confident it is a stylish product of true regeneration, and hopefully this will be the first of many awards to come.

“That the RCZ Sports Coupé has again - for the third year running – been awarded the Auto Express Best Coupé prize serves to demonstrate our improved product desirability, which increases with every new car we launch.”
