Peugeot’s 3008 has been crowned Car of the Year, by a jury of 58 motoring journalists from 22 European countries. The striking SUV with its compelling i-Cockpit human-machine interface emerged victorious from a shortlist also including the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Citroën C3, Mercedes-Benz E-class, Nissan Micra, Toyota C-HR and Volvo S90/V90. The 3008 totalled 319 points, edging out the Alfa Romeo with 296 points. Third place on the podium went to the Mercedes E-class, which scored 197 points. The announcement, made to a packed auditorium in Geneva, fired the starting gun on this year’s Swiss motor show.
