Peugeot

Peugeot is within the top few large vehicle manufacturers in Europe producing cars since 1895 when its first utility was introduced. Peugeot cars started appearing around the 1920's but it wasn't until the 1950's that Peugeot started to have prominence within the Australian automotive industry. Presently in Australia it has 13 models which include the popular 207, 3008, 308, 508, 4007 & RCZ. More Peugeot models are expected over the next 12 months.

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...

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...

We’re testing flagship variants here, with sticker prices between $30,000 and $40,000...

People-movers are pretty passé, which explains the continual success of seven-seat crossover SUVs like the group tested here. We’ve assembled what we consider to be six of the best, with the added bonus that all are either new models or at least recently upgraded...

Peugeot introduces first petrol particulate filter to Australia

It seems the French have found a way around Australia's poor fuel quality, beating the rest of the world to bring the first petrol particulate filter (PPF) to our market in the new Peugeot 308 GT warm hatch. Peugeot Australia has confirmed that local versions of the 308 GT will indeed be fitted with a PPF, despite other manufacturers like Porsche and Volkswagen claiming they're unable to bring their PPF-fitted powertrains Down Under due to our sulphur-rich petroleum...

Peugeot reveals rugged 3008 concept

The Peugeot 3008 has been treated to an adventure-ready makeover, though it's purely a concept for the time being. Created by the company's UK division, the one-off 3008 features "a series of subtle all-terrain enhancements", including Cooper AT3 off-road tyres wrapped around 17-inch steel wheels, a front skid plate for improved underbody protection, an LED light bar mounted on the front of a Rival aluminium roof rack, and a retractable ARB SImpson roof tent...

French automotive brands Peugeot and Citroen are making their most concerted effort yet to get a foothold in the highly competitive Australian market by joining forces and combining their dealerships.

2001 Peugeot 406 Coupe review

My sixth and final Peugeot came in the form of the Italian designed and assembled 406 Coupe. At the age of 25 and struggling to find the dollars to purchase one new (at the time costing around $76,000 plus options and on-roads in 2001), I settled for a 2-year-old Galileo Green metallic with an auto transmission...

2018 Peugeot 3008 Allure review

Having owned my Peugeot 3008 Allure for over six months and 12,000km, I can safely say that I’m still just as much in love with it as I was when I got it. After years of driving different models of Ford Focus, I thought it was time for a change...

2017 Peugeot 2008 Allure review

I should confess at the start of this report that I like Peugeots. At the time of the purchase of the 2008, my car selection was down to a stable of a Peugeot 504 that is on club plates, and a low-kilometre Peugeot 207 we purchased in 2003 after my request to buy a Subaru XV was rejected by SWMBO...

2016 Peugeot 308 Active review

So, a little while ago here I posted a very glowing review of my 2008 Ford Territory TX – my first car. In March this year, though, a family discussion of my needs and the car’s age and resale etc came up, and the decision was made to switch from the trusty but aging Tezza. Ideally, the next car would be a direct replacement – a dog-mobile/tow car with preferably a diesel engine and lower mileage...
