Note blocks in front of the front wheels, they were apparently afraid of a handbrake failure. Note model. Poor her. She looked so unhappy there, angry face and all, being ultra unattractive. I stayed around the car for about ten minutes. At one moment a Chinese photographer just asked her get lost, and she did, walking off stage. I found that kinda cruel, but such is life!

Best Peugeot interior since ages.


Probably the best looking Peugeot since ages.


Best rear lights for a Peugeot…ever? Just beautiful.


Much better without that babe! Love the line from mid headlight to the lower bumper. Nice car. Will compete in a very crowded segment, but surely has a chance.
