No Oil Test: Honda vs. Ford vs. Peugeot - Which Lasts Longer?

No Oil Test: Honda vs. Ford vs. Peugeot - Which Lasts Longer?

Driving without coolant and oil? Don’t try this at home kids!

As a driver, you should know that driving your car with the oil light on isn’t a good idea. The oil light usually pops on when the oil level drops or there’s insufficient oil pressure. Driving with the oil light on may cause extensive and expensive damage to the engine. But how long will a car’s engine run if you drain it of all coolant and oil? The folks over at Carwow tested this out on three different cars, a Ford Focus, a Peugeot 206, and a Honda Civic.

2020 Peugeot Landtrek

Peugeot Enters The Pickup Truck Segment With All Guns Blazing

Peugeot finally woke up from its slumber and decided to enter the pickup truck market. The French automaker has revealed its latest creation called the Landtrek. Peugeot isn’t a new player in the truck market and has had a fair share of haulers back in the day, such as the 504 and the 404 trucks.

Even now, it sells the Pick Up in a few African markets. Now, however, it has “returned” with a sincere effort in the form of the Landtrek. Instead of testing the waters by launching just a couple of variants, Peugeot has decided to go full throttle by introducing the truck in three different body styles and two different drive configurations.

2019 Peugeot 208 - Driven

2019 Peugeot 208 - Driven

Peugeot’s new 208 comes to the party with high ambitions, but is it any good?

We don’t have to tell you that Europe’s supermini segment is one of the toughest, cutthroat arenas in the car world, despite the fact that crossovers based the said superminis are poaching clients at a fast rate, just like they did with the sedan segment. In this context, Peugeot launched the new 208. No, it didn’t change its name to 209 as we would have expected, and that’s because Peugeot thinks the previous 208 had so much success that the same nameplate should stay for the new generation, too.

The French carmaker is adamant that the 208 is primarily a city car and, in accordance to that creed, Sochaux took all the measures it saw fit to make its new hatchback as appealing as possible. The fact that it will have to do battle against the likes of VW Polo, Renault Clio, Ford Fiesta, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa, and Dacia Sandero counted a lot in the general direction Peugeot led the new 208. We had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the sleek-looking hatch during a first-contact test drive, so here’s what we can report.

The PSA-FCA Merger Could Bring Some Cool Cars to the United States

The PSA-FCA Merger Could Bring Some Cool Cars to the United States

Could Peugeot be back in the U.S. sooner than we thought? And Can DS take on the likes of BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes?

FCA and PSA are merging; this much we know is true. With this in mind, and the reminder that Peugeot has been itching to get back into the U.S. market, we’ve realized that this new merger with FCA could streamline and speed up that process in a big way. Furthermore, it opens the door for brands like Citroen, Vauxhall, and DS to ease into the U.S. market without taking too large of a risk. So, if this all plays out in the most favorable way possible, what cool cars could end up on U.S. roads in the near future? Let’s dig into it and look at the possibilities.

2019 Peugeot 508 Allure 2.0 BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT8 Driven

2019 Peugeot 508 Allure 2.0 BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT8 Driven

New Peugeot 508 is a fantastic saloon with french charm and the right cards to play the Germans

It was 2010 when the rules changed after two Peugeot models were killed off: the 607, which was almost completely based on the 605 model from 1989, and the 407, which seemed like it was roaming between segments in an attempt to get into the wallets of two social strata. It wasn’t like Peugeot roamed around wearing blindfolds, though. This was more of an attempt at creating a global trend founded on personal identity; however, Peugeot couldn’t find its ground when it came to cars whose length was more than 4,5 meters (177 inches).

Mind you, Peugeot wasn’t the only one, as similar strategies were employed by Volvo, Renault, and even Ford. And then they were back with another attempt – one car that would be interesting to those in need of a spacious family car, but also those who were in search for a business saloon or the second best thing at least. As the wheelbase for the 607 was 2.800 mm (110.23 in), and 2.725 mm (107.28 in) for the 407, Peugeot found itself in uncharted territories in 2010 given that its 508 (albeit shorter than the 607), had a wheelbase of 2.817 mm.

So, the two generations of the 508 model found its way to more than 400,000 buyers in Europe alone. Despite steadily declining sales figures, Peugeot wasn’t ready to euthanize the model. Instead, the company decided to cut the administrative costs, and adequately entice its designers and engineers. They came up with a new product and Peugeot revealed it in March 2018 at the Geneva International Auto Show as the new 508.

Is the all-new Peugeot 2008 the best looking crossover you can buy right now?

Is the all-new Peugeot 2008 the best looking crossover you can buy right now?

Peugeot pulls the wraps off its 208 on stilts, the high-riding 2008 crossover, and it’s a looker

It seems you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to own a great looking crossover these days because you will soon be able to order the pretty new Peugeot 2008. Essentially a taller version of the company’s rakish 208 hatchback, aimed at those who prefer a loftier driving position and more practicality, it also happens to knock the ball out of the park in terms of style.

2020 Peugeot 208 GTi

2020 Peugeot 208 GTi

Peugeot will launch an all-new 208 GTi based on the most recent incarnation of the model, and while that day is still not quite around the corner, we pretty much already know what to expect from it. The automaker has been making incrementally better hot hatches in recent years, so we therefore have high expectations of this upcoming 208 GTi. In terms of formula, we don’t expect it to differ significantly from the current model: take a standard 208 hatchback, but give it firmer suspension, bigger brakes, a 1.6-liter engine with around (or maybe over) 200 horsepower, and a visual makeover inside and out designed to reflect the car’s extra sporting credentials.

But, since the new car is lighter and stiffer than the one it replaces, the new Peugeot 208 GTi should prove better than before because removing weight automatically makes a car better in any situation. We don’t expect Peugeot to give the 208 GTi any fancy electric supercharger that helps build boost, or an electric motor, although the inclusion of mild hybrid tech is not out of the question - more and more manufacturers are making their performance cars mild hybrids and it would certainly serve the little 208 GTi well.

2019 Peugeot 208 vs 2019 Renault Clio

2019 Peugeot 208 vs 2019 Renault Clio

The launch of French city cars is a pretty big deal in Europe, and this year we saw all-new generations of the most important models from Peugeot and Renault. The Peugeot 208 and Renault Clio are both all-new, even though in the case of the former you can certainly tell, whereas the latter just looks like the a facelift for the previous-generation model.

Renault played it safe with the Clio, clearly stating that its exterior look is merely evolutionary, but once you step inside you will notice the radically different (and better) interior. Believe it or not, the Clio rides on a new platform that, for the first time ever, gives Renault the chance to also offer it in hybrid form.

Peugeot has done one better, though. Its 208 looks striking and fresh both inside and out, borrowing design cues from the larger 508. Overall, therefore, it nudges in front of the Clio in terms of the way it looks and, on top of this, Peugeot will offer it in full EV guise under the name e-208. To make matters even better the e-208 is apparently going to have excellent range too.

However, Peugeot’s flamboyant approach to the design and styling of the 208 might put some people off completely, so even if on paper it may already sound like the winner in this company, the fact of the matter is there’s a lot more to it, and they need to be analyzed side by side.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Peugeot 208

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Peugeot 208

The European hatch we hope to see on U.S. soil in the near future

The Peugeot is one hell of a looker and, with the 2019 Peugeot 208 hatchback taking on plenty of 508 DNA, then it’s no wonder that we find the new 208 so damn sexy. After all, it has that aggressive and intriguing front end, the wide-bottom stand, and sleek rear end. It’s almost like Peugeot aimed to make the new 208 aggressive enough that nobody, regardless of tuning intention, would need to source or design an aftermarket body kit for it. And, with that said, it’s also commendable that the brand managed to avoid taking things too far and creating a design that’s just way too aggressive. The trims levels that will be available when the 2019 model hits showrooms won’t provide the kind of power that matches the exterior appearance but, within a couple of years, we should see GT and GTi trim levels hit the street and they should offer power output in the mid-200 range to offer good competition for models like the Renault Clio and the Ford Fiesta ST, among others. That might be a ways off, but the exterior design is still everything we could have hoped for, so we’ve decided to make the Peugeot 208 our wallpaper of the day. We’ve showcased our favorite below to go along with a gallery of other great wallpaper choices – all of which are free for the taking!

PSA Group Is Returning to the US around the year 2026

PSA Group Is Returning to the US around the year 2026

Will it just bring Peugeot over or will all its brands make it over The Pond?

PSA Group (owner of Peugeot, Citroen, DS and most recently Opel) is one of France’s largest automakers that manufactures models for a wide range of buyers with varying budgets. According to a new report, the group will start selling its cars in the United States again, but we don’t yet know if all their sub-brands are going to make it over or if they are going to adopt a similar approach to Alfa Romeo and bring over some more expensive, exclusive models first.

2019 Peugeot 208

2019 Peugeot 208

New Peugeot 208 is a city car done right

Peugeot is on a roll with the design of its latest models, and nothing makes this fact more evident than the all-new 2019 208 hatchback. It is a design tour de force, both inside and out, and it therefore can be viewed as a spiritual successor to the much loved 206 from the 1990s and early 2000s. “Futuristic and Young” are the two guiding themes Peugeot uses to describe the 208. And, they describe it perfectly. It looks fresh, yet somehow cozy and familiar, plus it also has its own identity - it doesn’t look like a smaller version of the 308, in a segment where this scaled down cookie cutter approach is common. Take the new Renault Clio, for instance. It looks like a shrunken down Megane while the new VW Polo could easily be mistaken for the golf.

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

We really have to come out and say it straight off the bat: the Peugeot 508 SW is one of the best looking estate- or wagon-style vehicles on the market right now at any price. It builds on the striking but stylish look of the 508 sedan but adds extra coolness and practicality courtesy of the wagon shape.

It debuted a few months after the three-box hatch (which looks like a sedan, but it really isn’t) was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva motor show, where people flocked around the Peugeot stand to get a better look at it - I’ve literally never seen a motor show stand more crowded, and as I was approaching it, I thought Peugeot had unveiled a surprise concept. In the end, it was actually the production-spec 508.

The 508 SW I think looks even better than the already pretty hatchback, especially since it’s not really a boxy, traditional wagon, but more of a fastback/shooting brake type of vehicle. Unusually for a load lugger of its type, it ticks the “looks like it’s moving while standing still” cliché box.

Looks really tempting, but how much does it cost?

This is some kind of a trend that the French Automaker is following. Earlier this year, the Peugeot 508 Liftback was displayed as a First Edition model, and now even the 508 SW is set to be offered as one as well. Customers will be spoiled with creature comforts that are on offer, including a pair of high-end headphones. It can be ordered starting October 2, but the prices are yet to be announced.
