The Car of the Year prize is awarded by a judging panel comprising 58 experienced journalists from 22 countries. Thirty models have been competing since early 2016. On the eve of the Geneva Motor Show, the Peugeot 3008 won over the panel in the final vote.

“I am particularly proud and very pleased that the new Peugeot 3008 has just won the 2017 Car of the Year prize. This trophy is the culmination of five years of incredible work by the brand’s teams and our group,” said Jean-Philippe Imparato, CEO of the Peugeot brand.
