The Peugeot will also receive a rear spoiler that offers additional efficiency at high speeds, twin chrome rear exhaust pipes, and "GT" badges on the side and rear of the body.

Nice interior! It looks so simple, but it had a great dashboard and nice handling which impress me a lot. As for the exterior appearance, the hygienic and decent appearance of it is so appealing.

fuel economy is claimed to be 40.8mpg on the combined EU cycle, while CO2 emissions of 159g/km places it in VED tax band G, which costs £155 per year.

It’s like the same as the previous model, Peugeot need more good cars that would hit the market.

Puegeot should stop being ’sensitive’ to its hot hatch history and actually produce worthy sucessors to the 205 and 306 GTI. VW managed to resurrect the Golf GTI magic after the lacklustre Mk3 and Mk4, so Peugeot need to step up to the challenge not duck it!

New Chrysler model or just bring it over as is. Either way, Puegot will be a winner in the states.

It looks great, specially the front end look very aggressive. I hope it can perform as it looks like

lovely, but I like the mazda 2 or ford fiesta because of the fuel efficiency and its price is a lot more cheaper than the 308 c.
