The company produced its first car, a three-wheeled steam-powered vehicle, in 1889, but it was the post-war era that saw the Peugeot brand catapult in popularity. In 1974, Peugeot bought a 30% stake in Citroen and by 1975 had gained control of the company completely. The group also took over the European division of Chrysler in 1978. Peugeot model names are based on size and number (the first number indicating size, the last number indicating model number) – a Peugeot 407 therefore being bigger and newer than the Peugeot 306.</p><p>Today, Peugeot offers an extensive range of popular vehicles starting with the Peugeot 1007, a concept car, through to MPVs and vans. Its most popular models are in the mid-size range and Peugeot has gained plaudits too for the quality of its vehicles having won the accolade of European car of the year on three occasions – the most recent being in 2002 for the Peugeot 307.

2011 - Peugeot has given the 308 a mid-life nip and tuck, which has the happy result of doing away with the earlier 308’s beaky nose and replacing it with a much smoother look. Overall, it’s a welcome update for the 308’s looks, while under the bonnet are revised engines for greater economy and lower emiss [...]
SW - Peugeot has a long history of building superb estate cars and the new 508 SW does nothing but continue this tradition. It’s bigger than its predecessor, the 407, and offers a much improved drive too, so the 508 is a good deal more appealing overall. Is this enough to tempt private and business drive [...]
Peugeot is modest about its sales claims for the 508 as it hopes to avoid direct comparisons with the likes of the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat. The French firm mentions Audi and Mercedes in the same breath as the 508, but the reality is this family saloon must do battle with the mainstream of [...]
