Peugeot has has a successful start to 2010 by winning two prestigious awards.
Due for release in Australia this year is the Peugeot 3008 and RCZ, and have both been successful in receiving awards.
The Peugeot RCZ coupe was named most Beautiful Car of 2009 at the International Automobile Festival and will arrive in Australia in the second half of the year.
The winner is chosen from the public votes, more than 65,000 votes worldwide were cast and the RCZ received 33 per cent of the votes. This is the fourth time Peugeot has won this award.
Peugeot’s RCZ received a huge amount of public praise when first seen at the last Frankfurt Motor Show, with its double bubble roof and rear window and the two aluminium arches helping it stand out in the crowd.
RCZ’s win comes after the 3008 SUV was named Car of the Year by the UK magazine What Car? Arriving in Australia in April this year the 3008 has had great success in Europe with sales 30 per cent above its target.
Peugeot’s clever 3008 combines a hatchback, MPV and SUV into one easy to live with package.
