Peugeot 208: a first distinction in the United Kingdom
On the day of its introduction on sale in the UK, the new Peugeot 208 is seen distinguished in its category, with a prestigious prize awarded by the motoring magazine Auto Express.
For its part, the RCZ is the winner in the Coupé category.

Every year, the British weekly Auto Express awards its highly coveted motoring prizes: the entire vehicle range available in the UK market, divided into categories, is judged by the editorial staff of the magazine, according to a comprehensive range of static and dynamic criteria.

In the "Supermini" category, which accounts for more than 30% of the market in the UK, the 208 won the prize, ahead of the Audi A1 and the Ford Fiesta; in the "Coupé" class, the RCZ is rewarded for the third year running.

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."
