The PEUGEOT 5008 has been awarded the title of Used Car of the Year at the What Car? Used Car Awards 2022.
The What Car? Used car of the Year awards are held annually and recognise the best used car buys across different classes, before naming the overall Used Car of the Year.
Judges take the car’s reliability and availability into account and the winning models are selected based on affordability, comfort and low running costs, alongside offering a good driving experience.
Launched in 2017, the PEUGEOT 5008 was praised by the judges for its interior space and practicality, its stylish design and high-quality interior, as well as its refinement, comfort and handling.
The PEUGEOT 5008 has previously collected numerous accolades, including the Large SUV title at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards and the ‘SUV of the Year’ at the Company Car Today CCT100 Awards.
The 5008 offers a class-leading modular interior, with seven individual seats. To maximise load and carrying capacity, both the second and third row of seats can be folded to offer a flat load area and 2150 litres of space behind the front seats.
Additionally, the third row can be folded away under the floor when not in use, as well as fully removed, while the second row of seats are all adjustable.
Helping drivers to stay safe on the road, PEUGEOT’s i-Cockpit technology features a compact, multi-function steering wheel, 12.3-inch digital head-up display and central colour touchscreen with Mirrorscreen.
A suite of driver assistance systems is also offered, including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection and Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation.
Mark Pearson, Used Cars Editor at What Car? commented: “We’re delighted to be awarding our What Car? Used Car of the Year Award to the Peugeot 5008 this year. It’s a car we’ve always admired, not least for its generous space and impressive practicality, and now that it’s become so affordable on the used market it’s clearly a great second-hand proposition, too.”
“Here is a large seven-seat SUV that is both stylish outside and plush inside and also really good to drive, with top-notch handling and some smooth and efficient engines. It’s wonderfully refined and comfortable, too. None of our other category winners could match its combination of all-round desirability, practicality and value for money.”
Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT, UK, commented: “We’re honoured that What Car? has recognised the PEUGEOT 5008 as not only the best used large SUV, but also as the overall Used Car of the Year.”
“We’re thrilled that the 5008 has stood out from the other category winners and impressed the judges with its design, practicality and refined driving experience. As one of the most prestigious and influential motoring titles in the UK, this award is a fantastic endorsement and further evidence of the popularity of PEUGEOT’s SUV range.”
