2nd December, 2014

Competing in the middle-class (mid-size), the Peugeot 508 bested the Skoda Superb and Mercedes C-Class for the category win for vehicles one to three years of age.

The largest used car report in Germany collates data from 5 million general inspections, conducted by GTÜ’s (Society for Technical Supervision mbH) accredited and independent vehicle inspection agents, covering 240 vehicle makes across seven categories.

Peugeot Australia General Manager, John Startari, said that the award was recognition of Peugeot’s increased focus on quality and reliability.

“When Peugeot arrived in Australia almost 70 years ago, reliability and durability was the key to our early success - today that focus has not changed,” said Startari.

“As one of the largest, independent, quality awards in Germany, the GTÜ award recognises the efforts of our engineers and designers to deliver vehicles that are world leading when it comes to quality,

“The outstanding results for the 508 in Germany reflects our local experience with the model, particularly as we prepare for the launch of the new-look 508 early next year in Australia,” said Startari.

The new-look Peugeot 508 sedan and touring are set to launch in Australia during the first quarter of 2015 and brings with it new exterior styling, increased standard specification and enhanced safety.

The GTÜ quality report is published in conjunction with Auto Zeitung in an annual 204-page report, that presents each vehicle in detail together with technical data and model history. The special issue "Auto Zeitung Used Guide 2015 GTÜ Report" is available throughout German newsagents now.
