2019 Peugeot 208 revealed

Peugeot has revealed its new 208 baby hatchback ahead of an in-person debut at the Geneva motor show next week, complete with a pure-electric variant. Up front, the new supermini has a face with more than just a hint of 508 about it. The headlamps contain a condensed version of Peugeot's three-stripe claw graphics, the outermost of which link with a pronounced 'fang' running into the bumper...

Peugeot 508 Sport Engineered concept revealed for Geneva

2018 Peugeot 3008 Active review

Sharply tailored and a little bit different from the rest of the medium-SUV herd, Peugeot’s 3008 Active provides an intriguing alternative to its less vibrant opposition.

Holiday road trip in the Peugeot 5008

I have a fondness for French cars. There, I’ve said it. My infatuation probably stems from the Citroen 2CV my mum owned back in the late 1960s. Yes, it was slow. No, it wasn’t comfortable and yes, it ended its all too short life on its side (with me inside). But I loved that car. I loved its quirky styling, it’s pale blue paint, and the black canvas roof that folded back like an old sardine tin...

2020 Peugeot 2008 spied

The second-generation Peugeot 2008 has been spied during winter testing in northern Europe. If the surfacing of the new 2008 seems a little flat and bland, it's because there are quite a few small false panels affixed underneath the camouflage to hide many of the styling elements of the final car. We can see, though, the new 2008 will continue with Peugeot's latest studded grille design...

2019 Peugeot 208 spied again

The next-generation Peugeot 208 has been spied on the snowy roads of Europe this week, ahead of an anticipated reveal at the Geneva motor show in March. As we've seen from previous prototypes, the new-gen 208 will be larger than the current model, and incorporate various design elements inspired by the company's latest aesthetic theme, meaning it should bear a strong resemblance to the 3008, 508 and 5008...

Peugeot 508 maxed on the autobahn - video

With a trendy, compact new shape and frameless doors, there's no doubt the Peugeot 508 is a stylish customer. But its engine line-up consists only of 1.6-litre engines, which seems like minimal displacement in what should be an effortless flagship for the French brand. Turns out, the range-topping 508 GT can still shift, thanks to 169kW and 300Nm channeled through an eight-speed automatic transmission...

2019 Peugeot 508 review: First drive

Who buys a large sedan anymore? In Australia, not many. But, the new Peugeot 508 Fastback is a great option if you simply don’t want an SUV and are after something fun and sporty. Prices are yet to be confirmed, but expect it somewhere between $45-55,000 (a little lower or a little higher is possible). It’s worth cross-shopping with the Volkswagen Arteon...
