Peugeot Triumphs At NST-Maybank ‘COTY’ 2014


1 Dec 2014 - Nasim Sdn Bhd and the Peugeot brand were some of the big winners at the New Straits Times (NST) – Maybank Car of the Year 2014 Awards which was held on November 27.


The Peugeot 2008 Urban SUV won in the Compact SUV category while the Peugeot 208 GTi was the winner in the Compact Performance category.


“It is incredibly gratifying for both the Peugeot 2008 Urban SUV and Peugeot 208 GTi to win at NST-Maybank COTY 2014, especially considering they are two widely different cars. The Peugeot 2008 Urban SUV was designed to appeal to a wide demographic audience while the Peugeot 208 GTi has amassed a devoted following in the niche market. What they do have in common is that both cars have received critical acclaim in Europe. Now, we are on our way to matching the success locally,” said Dato’ Samson Anand George, Chief Operating Officer of Nasim Sdn Bhd.


The Peugeot 2008 Urban SUV was introduced to the Malaysian market in January 2014. The Peugeot 2008 Urban SUV has nearly ten international awards to its name, won in Ireland, Italy, Spain, France, Poland and Turkey. Among the international awards won by the 2008 Urban SUV include the ‘European Car Of The Year 2014’ by Italy’s Auto Europa, and ‘Top SUV/Crossover Vehicle’ by Poland’s Golden Steering Wheel awards. Last month, Peugeot’s Mulhouse plant produced the 200,000th unit since the Peugeot 2008 Urban SUV’s European launch in 2013.


The year before, Nasim brought in the Peugeot 208 GTi in October. Less than a year after its European sales launch, the 10,000th PEUGEOT 208 GTi came off the production line, confirming the success of the reinterpretation of the GTi legend. Peugeot recently celebrated 30 years since the original 205 GTi and for its anniversary reissued a more radical version of the 208 GTi.


All Peugeot models come with five-year warranty with unlimited mileage together with Nasim’s 24-hour Peugeot Assistance service, complimentary access to the Peugeot Lounge at Subang Airport and Peugeot Privilege membership, all to provide the best ownership experience for its customers.
