I am not a huge fan of foreign manufacturers simply because many that I have driven (including the car I own now) have been underpowered, and overly safety sensitive. (I had to disable the lane beep and smart trunk in my 2015 Sonata.) I also find the materials quality to be quite cheap for the work Asian manufacturers put in to make the cars look expensive. (notice I didn't say good *cough* Toyota *cough*)
One of my more favorite European car companies is Audi. But Audi can get into expensive territory.
However my all time favorites in the foreign market have been Peugeot (more CitroŽn). I have always loved their quirky, but good looking designs. I have even responded to some of Toyota's recent designs saying that they could use some design help from the French if they want to be different. As much as I love Ford (and the FIN community), Ford comes 2nd after Citroen. Though in my future car buying journey (maybe ten years from now) I would definitely still keep one Ford and one PSA in my garage.
Do you want Peugeot and Citroen in the US? What do you want to see from them?
However, according to Automotive News, the PSA group thinks it has a solution to this that would reduce the dealer's startup costs, keep profit margins high, and make the buying experience simpler for US consumers. A large part of this plan would likely include an app and various other digital means to smooth the buying process. We imagine it would function something like Hyundai Shopper Assurance.
Very beautiful design as expected. The rear is very A7-like. Peugeot knows how to keep the sedan alive as many other companies (including Ford) don't. I'd be happy to buy one in my usual brown-on-brown or brown-on-beige configuration if only it was sold in the US. 2026 sounds really late, which means PSA will need to push themselves a lot harder by then, which I don't doubt they will. I'm interested to see what they come up with in 8 years.
