If its impressive order numbers weren't enough, the Peugeot 308 is now the 2014 Car of the Year.
According to dailymail.co.uk, a spokesman for the car manufacturer states that since its launch, over 55,000 orders for the Peugeot 308 have been made and a high proportion of the orders are for the upper trim models.
This isn't the first time Peugeot has been honoured with the award though, as three previous models have been granted the title. The last vehicle to take the award was the 307 in 2002, reports rac.co.uk.
A second body style will soon be added to the 308 range too, as the SW estate model will be making its way to market this Spring.
Director general of Automobiles Peugeot, Maxime Picat, wasn't surprised at the news - stating: "With the new Peugeot 308, we were convinced that we had achieved a leap in concept, technology and quality and which would soon allow it a place on the podium for the category in Europe.
"The prestigious 2014 Car of the Year award, which I receive today on the behalf of everyone at Peugeot who has contributed towards the development and launch of the award-winning new 208, is the best confirmation of this."
An international jury made up of 58 motoring writers awarded the vehicle 307 points overall, and 22 of the judges awarded the top number of points available.
