Auto Trader New Car Awards 2019

We are really pleased to share that a number of our brands have been featured in the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2019, based on survey feedback in 16 areas from over 60,000 car owners.

Taking the overall New Car of the Year 2019 title was the Peugeot 3008 which was commended for its quality interior, coming in second for driving comfort and for the quality of its features and accessories.

Ivan Aistrop, Auto Trader’s road test editor, commented on the 3008’s victory: “It’s easy to see why Britain’s car owners have voted the Peugeot 3008 as their overall New Car of the Year. People love its style – both on the inside and the outside - and it’s seriously impressive for interior quality, safety and equipment. It’s also good to drive, roomy and practical.”
