    Peugeot's vision of a lowrider MPV-GT

    The Peugeot HX1 concept will introduce a new style of multi-purpose vehicle when it debuts at next month’s 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. As these images show, the Peugeot HX1 is a long, sleek people mover/wagon. With a drag coefficient of just 0.28, Peugeot says the concept is unparalleled in its class from an aerodynamics perspective.

    Looks excellent. I like their newer designs on most of their cars including the 5008. I never liked French cars until about a year ago.

    Absolutely breathtaking. I just love how it sits so low. But two negatives it is not American and it is a concept.

    Peugeot have generally had good, clean designs for a long time (with some exceptions, of course). Renault and Citreon, on the other hand...

    I love it from every view! Plus I am a long time fan of one-box designs anyway...the execution of this is stellar.

    Not bad, but PSA's production cars are much more interesting than their concepts. Too bad it's a recycled Citroen concept anyway.

    Any Peugeot i ever had for evaluation (and that was a lifetime ago) i called Poop-Joe. They were just horrible. Slag buckets.
    As you all can remember, American cars were under fire, back then, for quality issues. Heck, those cars made our cars look like a Lexus.

    Good night and good luck.

    Yes I cannot deny that but their clean simple designs I think also looked rather bland and cheap. I like what they have done a lot more recently. Also I would probably never own a 207 or 308 but I would rock an RCZ or 508.

    As for Citroen I think they have made the biggest jump forward since I considered all of their cars eye soars up until recently. The C4 is their best looking car I think but the C5 could be a looker without their double chevron grill.

    And Renault..... I think they had car I like.

    This thing looks pretty sharp! I wish they would have painted it a different color though. From the side, the windshield blends in too much with the A-pillar due to the lighting and paint color.

    Does anyone really think that we'll see this over here?
    The french can cook, no doubt. IMO, they had to have Nissan, in their camp, to show them how to build a car.

    PSA concepts never make it to production, this is just eye-tease and letting their oversized design team vent some ideas.

    I believe their new 408 could do very well in the States.

    yes it is a nice concept but after you make the front higher for pedestrian impact and other changes it won't look much like the concept.
