The Peugeot 2008 is SA’s 2021 Car of the Year, as voted for by the SA Guild of Motoring Journalists.
The French crossover SUV was launched here earlier this year and has been lauded for its extrovert styling, utility and charisma. Apart from the overall award the 2008 claimed the Compact Family Category.
Second place overall went to the Toyota Hilux Double Cab, which also won the Double Cab category. Third place was claimed by the BMW 4 Series which also won the Premium category.
The annual SA Car of the Year trophy has been awarded since 1986 and this year, due to Covid-19, was the first time the competition did not feature a juror evaluation event. An online scoring system was used instead.
