The lion roars again- the peugeot 208 gti has hunted in the alps

You will find it in front of hip clubs, on the promenades of lively Rivieras and in the shopping streets of today’s metropolises. The Peugeot 208 GTi is the French chameur, the shy schoolboy who ends up getting women – literally.

So where better to think of the Hot Hatch, if not to France, more precisely to the Côte d ‘Azur, because this is exactly where we were allowed to chase and kick it through the hinterland.

Nice can also come up with magnificent mountain landscapes, as it is the third largest city and offers access to the Alps.

Psa 5-year plan for citroen, peugeot and ds

“Push to Pass” is the name of the new five-year plan from PSA, the parent company that unites Peugeot, Citroen and DS Automobiles. The French car manufacturer has set itself high goals, which should primarily ensure growth over the next five years. A big topic is electrification in the form of plug-in hybrids or complete electric cars. A total of 26 new vehicles and eight commercial vehicles are manifested in the 5-year plan for PSA.

PSA wants growth with electric drives

The major growth plan includes seven plug-in hybrid vehicles and four all-electric vehicles. In addition, the implementation of new connectivity solutions as well as autonomous technology is of course in the foreground. The direction for the next five years includes a global plan, so probably not all 26 vehicles can also be seen in Germany. PSA is already offering vehicles on the Chinese market that are only used here as a “basis” for the WTCC, for example.

Preview of the sixth generation of the Opel Corsa

It is now clear that the new Opel Corsa will be a PSA vehicle. But it wasn’t that clear about two years ago. With the sale of Opel by GM to PSA, a lot has changed, especially in the development of the small car. In only about two years, real miracles have been achieved in Rüsselsheim, so that the sixth generation can start next year.

Development in an absolute record time

True miracles because the sixth generation of the Opel Corsa was already “ready to go”. However, on the old GM platform. In order not to have to pay license fees to GM, the PSA head office decided on a quick new development. Carlos Tavares wants to bring the Opel brand back into profitability. This would only work if you build cost-effectively. Thus, the existing Opel Corsa was left behind in development and started all over again.

World premiere seat arona crossover

With the Seat Arona, the Spaniards are now celebrating the second premiere of the new MQB-A0 construction kit, while the mother company Volkswagen has just presented a vehicle for it. Identical to the soon-to-be-released VW T-Roc, the Spanish version is clever on the inside and emotionally on the outside. After its premiere in Spain, the B-SUV will be presented to the public for the first time at the IAA in September.

Model offensive 2017 with the next important model

Seat is going full throttle in 2017. While last year the focus was entirely on the Ateca, the crossover model Seat Arona is already the third new vehicle this year. It started with the revised Leon, through the brand new Seat Ibiza, to the brand’s first crossover. The Spanish version of the Kodiaq will follow next year, i.e. the Seat, the name of which has not yet been determined.

World premiere of the citroen c5 aircross with patented suspension

At Auto Shanghai 2017, Citroen is showing the production version of the Aircross concept car. The supposed closeness to the Peugeot 5008 is difficult to cover up, but the new Citroen C5 Aircross shows typical peculiarities and above all the current Citroen face. Especially since the SUV has saved a definitive world premiere, borrowing from bygone times: a suspension with a hydraulic stop.

Three SUV models – three different wheelbases

With a wheelbase of 2.73 meters, the Citroen C5 Aircross ranks between the Peugeot 3008 and 5008. Technically, however, all models are based on the current EMP2 platform, especially since parts of the new i-cockpit from Peugeot also appear in the interior. The presentation in Shanghai is not entirely by chance, because the C5 Aircross will first be introduced in China in the second half of 2017 before it comes to Europe at the end of 2018.
