We are so used to seeing wonderful Peugeot concepts at Geneva Motor Show each year that their lineup for this year’s show appears a bit disappointing. There are a couple of concepts we’ve seen before, but it’s mainly about hatchbacks and estates.
The highlight of Peugeot lineup for 2014 Geneva Motor Show is, of course, the 108 city car. It is a meeting point for small numbers, which add up to create a pretty decent car. It is 3.47 metres long and weighs 840kg, and comes with a selection of small and efficient engines.
Notwithstanding the size, Peugeot has packed the 108 full of nice features. It comes with a seven-inch touch-screen, reversing camera, PEUGEOT Open and Go system (Keyless Entry and Starting), automatic air conditioning, heated electric mirrors and automatic lighting. Last but not least, you can have it as either a hatchback or a convertible.
The next Geneva-bound feline is the Peugeot 308 SW estate. Designed as a C-segment leader, the 308 SW boasts a large boot volume including underfloor storage, a light and spacious cabin, a modular seating concept and exceptional practicality.
The 308 also gets something Peugeot call the iCockpit, comprising a compact steering wheel, high level instrument panel, tall centre console and an innovative 9.7-inch touch-screen. It is a pleasant place to spend time in.
As for the concept cars, you will get to see again the 308 R Concept and the 2008 HYbrid Air technology concept. Peugeot is putting a big emphasize on technology, in fact, showcasing 1.2-litre 110 and 130bhp PureTech e-THP three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines, as well as the latest BlueHDi diesel emissions technologies.
