The compact SUV segment of our country’s car market has been largely dominated by the Hyundai Creta. With no real rivals to deal with (the once popular Renault Duster is a bit too dated now), the Creta has been enjoying a free run of sorts. However, things don’t look as easy for this hot-selling Hyundai in the near future. There are at least seven new SUVs that will have the Creta in the crosshairs. Let’s take a look at this upcoming Hyundai Creta rivals in this post – Kia SP Concept-based SUV Kia made a lot of noise at the Auto Expo 2018 with the unveiling of the SP Concept. This design study will give birth to a Hyundai Creta-rivalling compact SUV that will likely launch in a year’s time. The company has already said that the upcoming SP-based SUV would command a slight premium over the Creta.

GENEVA, Switzerland — When you consider all the spectacular new sports cars and supercars and daring concepts that make their debuts at the Geneva motor show every year, it’s easy to forget the output of one entire country, even though they come closest, after the Swiss cottage-shop brands, to being the local industry. I’m talking about the French brands, of course: Peugeot, Citroen, and Renault. Opel/Vauxhall, which PSA Peugeot-Citroen purchased from General Motors last year, was absent from the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. Meanwhile, both the Peugeot and Citroen stands emphasized new and updated models. Peugeot showcased its new 508 midsize sedan and its new MPV, which for lack of a better comparison, could be France’s Chrysler Pacifica, while Citroen showed off its face-lifted Cactus crossover/wagon and a new Berlingo MPV. Which will come to the U.S. when Peugeot-Citroen returns (with just one brand) in a few years? This year’s show … [Read more...] about Peugeot, Citroen, and Renault at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show
Here’s the new Peugeot 508 in full, now officially released after a low res set of images emerged online. It’s a fantastic looking big sedan, for this writer at least, and Peugeot is calling it “the radical saloon”. The French carmaker is aiming high with this one. “Following the success of our latest major launches and our SUV offensive with the 2008, 3008 and 5008, we needed a vision for the large Peugeot saloon that would continue to shake up the market with a vehicle that rivals the best. And in D-segment cars, we’re competing with the world’s greatest automakers. More than ever, the new 508 embodies the ambition we’ve been stating for several years already – to make Peugeot the top high-end generalist automotive brand,” declared CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato. The D-segment sedan isn’t a very hot one now, no thanks to everyone buying SUVs, and Peugeot acknowledges this. It was against this backdrop that the designers … [Read more...] about New Peugeot 508 officially revealed
Peugeot’s new 508 flagship saloon will get rear styling inspired by the Instinct concept of last year’s Geneva motor show.Leaked pictures, which first surfaced on Peugeot fan site Peugeot Héritage, show the rear of the car, with stylistic rear light bar taking direct inspiration from the Instinct concept. The car's official reveal will take place at the Geneva motor show next month, with UK sales scheduled for November. As previous spy shots confirmed, the car will retain its saloon body style, with a short boot lid with incorporated lip spoiler completing a swooping line from the top of the car’s roof. The car will gain Peugeot’s i-Cockpit system, with a digital dashboard replacing traditional dials and an 8in touchscreen infotainment system taking precedent on a de-cluttered dashboard. The headlights (pictured above) also appear to take a similar shape to those of the shooting brake concept, but it’s not yet known if the front of the … [Read more...] about 2018 Peugeot 508 leaks ahead of Geneva motor show debut
