Pumped-up Peugeot crossover mule spied

How cool does this PSA test mule - being hot-weather tested in the south of Europe - look? Beneath this Peugeot 208 body is probably test architecture for the expected Peugeot 1008 baby crossover that'll soon slot into its range below the 2008. Should such a car materialise, it'd give the French company a rival to the Nissan Juke and co. Though, of course, this might also be a very early development of the second-generation 2008.
