Peugeot 208 and 2008 Win Red Dot Award in Product Design
Every year, Red Dot gets together and awards businesses who distinguish their products through design. This year, two Peugeots were handed Red Dot Awards for Product Design; the 208 and 2008. These B-segment French entries are certainly lookers. It’s hard to argue against the decision.
These awards make it 6 times Peugeot has bagged Red Dot awards for design.
Here’s the press release with more.
It’s official: the new PEUGEOT 208 compact car and the new SUV PEUGEOT 2008 models have received the 2020 Red Dot Award in the ‘Product Design’ category. Both PEUGEOT models impressed the international jury with their sporty exterior designs and outstanding workmanship. The French automotive manufacturer won the design prize for the sixth time.
PEUGEOT 208 and PEUGEOT 2008: striking design and electric version
With its striking exterior design, the new PEUGEOT 208 reflects the brand’s elevated positioning. This also impressed the jury of experts; the new model has elongated, clear lines and a sporty look. The model’s interior also features a world première: the digital 3D instrument cluster. It is available as a standard feature from the Allure equipment line upwards and forms part of the PEUGEOT 3D i-Cockpit®, which also comprises a sporty, flattened multifunction steering wheel and a 10-inch touchscreen.
The new PEUGEOT 2008 impressed the jury with its vertical LED front daytime running lights, which define the new design language. They lend the vehicle a sabre-toothed look, with a high level of brand recognition. The multifaceted profile of the new SUV features triangular lines. It ensures that the design remains consistently vibrant from the front to the rear. The rear of the model boasts a horizontal, gloss-black band that integrates the LED rear lights in the shape of three claws. There are many fine details inside the new PEUGEOT 2008, including high-quality decorative stitching, ambient LED lighting (available from the GT Line equipment line) and premium materials such as Alcantara® (available in the GT equipment line).
Full-electric versions of the New PEUGEOT 208 and the New PEUGEOT 2008 are also available. Subtle and exclusive design elements set the New PEUGEOT e-208 and the New PEUGEOT e-2008 apart from the combustion-engine versions: the radiator grille matches the chassis colour and the Lion emblem changes colour depending on where you are standing.
