About PSA Group

Peugeot, Citroën, DS and Vauxhall are four of the most respected brands in the motor industry and we have the accolades to prove it.

  • 2019 Carbuyer Best Cars Award for ‘Best Large Family Car’ – Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport
  • Auto Trader’s ‘New Car of the Year’ for the Peugeot 3008 SUV
  • 2019 Auto Express Awards ‘Small SUV of the Year’ for the Citroën C3 Aircross

The automotive industry is fast paced and Groupe PSA’s strategy for 2016 to 2021 aims to make the Group a global car manufacturer on the cutting edge of efficiency and a provider of mobility services favoured by its customers, keeping ahead of the game with the launch of the Electric Vauxhall Corsa and PHEV vehicle range later this year. This strategy is underpinned by three levers; the digital transformation of the Group, the internal performance culture and corporate social responsibility.
