Last Friday we reported that Peugeot will bring the EX1 concept car to the Paris Auto Show. It seems that next to it, the French company will also bring the HR1 concept - a preview version of a future compact crossover based on the 208. With this new model, Peugeot will enter the B-segment market and will compete with models like Nissan Juke.
The concept’s exterior design will be inspired by the SR1 concept unveiled this year at the Geneva Motor Show, and will be defined by flowing lines. Under the hood we expect to see the same hybrid powertrain as used in the 3008 HYbrid4 : a 2.0 liter 163 bhp HDi diesel engine combined with a 37 bhp electric motor and an electronically-controlled manual six-speed sequential gearbox.
While this spy images only reveal the wheels and a little bit of the car’s rear, the Paris Show is just around the corner, so stay tuned!
