Vehicle Of The Year 2024 –  Peugeot 408 GT

The Peugeot 408 GT was our pick for the ultimate Vehicle of the Year award for 2024.

Picking one single vehicle as the best of the year required a lot of discussion between our judges. There are entries from other categories that would have fit perfectly here and of course there are supercars, electric cars and luxury limos that probably would go on our personal lists of vehicle of the year. However, our VOTY philosophy sets some guidelines for our choice – we don’t pick cars that the average middle income family can’t dream of owning. We picked the Peugeot 408 GT as our VOTY winner and thank Stellantis Malaysia for reaching out and allowing our judges to drive the car in time for our evaluation.

Peugeot 408 GT

The Peugeot 408 GT is a genre-bending vehicle that delivers D-segment wagon practicality at the price of a C-segment crossover. In terms of styling, there’s plenty to talk about. It’s avantgarde, sporty, and tech-focused all in one. Power and comfort are well balanced too. All this while delivering a family-friendly package at a really good price thanks to local-assembly. We know we’ll see plenty of these 408 GTs on Malaysian roads in the coming months.

About VOTY 2024

The Allianz DSF.my Vehicle Of The Year (VOTY) Award ceremony is the first and only vehicle award event in Malaysia that does not hand out paid awards, nor does it charge winners or participating brands any fee whatsoever. Winners are allowed to use the VOTY event logo free of charge in all marketing materials. Event attendees are not even charged for their seat at the award presentation. All car manufacturers that operate in Malaysia are invited to participate free of charge. All they have to do is let our judges test drive their nominated vehicles.

The nominated vehicles must have been launched in Malaysia in the last 12 months and cannot be a localised minor facelift (body-kits, stickers, wheel upgrades, etc). All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.

The judges for VOTY 2024 are Daniel Sherman Fernandez and Subhash Nair of dsf.my, Ross Hadi of gohedgostan.com and Joshua Chin of automacha.com.
