Peugeot’s recently launched 208 has just won Best Supermini in its class at the esteemed Auto Express New Car Awards 2012. Commenting on the announcement, Des Cannon, Sales and Marketing Director at Peugeot Ireland, said: said “This is a great month for Peugeot. In the first month that the new 208 goes on sale in Ireland, we are especially pleased to receive this key award. The Auto Express Best Supermini award is the 208’s first international accolade. We are confident it is the first of many awards to come.” The Peugeot 208 is on sale across the Peugeot Dealer Network in Ireland, with prices commencing from €14,495 with all engines seated in tax band A.
It was double celebration for Peugeot, as they scooped up the award for the Best Coupé with the Peugeot RCZ, for the third year in a row. Auto Express’ Steve Fowler commented: “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.”
