Peugeot’s cars used to be compact little boxes for darting around the city, through tight streets and the hectic Parisian traffic. Bot somewhere along the line, they became bland and bulky, especially the 308, about which the only good thing we can say is that the CC looked decent.
Now though, Peugeot is replacing it and we have good news. As you’ve probably heard already, the replacement for the 207 is really small and light, and the latest spy photos f the 308 successor show this might also be the case here. The wheels are hiding behind the wheel arches, and the rear one are also creeping forward.

The platform will be shared with the one known from the Citroen C4 and DS4, as will likely be the case with the engines. Also expect three-cylinder units at the bottom of the range and production versions of the diesel-electric hybrid system.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
