Peugeot cars spied again

     In our earlier post we had posted the spy pictures of Peugeot 207 and 508 testing on Mumbai Pune highway. We came across more pictures of the cars, now at a parking lot in Pune. Thanks to NDTV Car and Bike Show fan Ritesh Rasane for the picture.

     Everyone would say Peugeot is known for the styling and wonder what could the company add to it Indian car market. We feel Peugeot is not only good in styling but also good at power trains and build quality. The Peugeot 309 launched decade and a half ago is a good example. The 309 had all the ingredients of being a good car India but for the marketing techniques by Indian partner Premier Automobiles.

     The 207 hatch will compete against VW Polo and Hyundai i20. If priced competitively, the car can also make a dent into the Swift category. The bigger 508 will lock horns against Honda Accord and Skoda Superb.

     We feel Peugeot is definitely not looking at mass market. Peugeot wants to stabilize in India first and want to create a niche for itself. We will definitely see more vehicles from Peugeot stable in the future.
