    "It will also have a fragrance diffuser with seven fragrances developed by a French perfume supplier"

    Woah !! Way to de-masculinize a car, short of calling it a Clio

    I picked up on this article a few weeks back and i think the journalist has got a few things wrong.


    while the BMW venture 16-valve 1.6-litre engine produces 110kW of power at 5750rpm and 149Nm of torque at 4000rpm.
    If this is true, its very disapointing.

    what better way then to call your car Cleo... whoops Clio

    we might do a stripped-down version of the 206 and bring it in at a bargain price under the 207
    This is intresting however... a base model with no options, or a car more in the Rallye mould?? a GTI180 Rallye edition would be nice

    What the hell are "Static directional headlamps"? Headlights that point only in one direction? Now that's innovative.

    Uh, the same company releasing two cars with the same feature is not 'copy catting'.

    Haha, now I know you're not the brightest person so I'll elaborate for you.

    If you haven't noticed, there is an incredible amount of parts sharing within PSA. Funny how they share the same engines isn't it? It's rather stupid to claim one brand is copying the other when their entire existence revolves around sharing the same componentry.

    Which they've been doing ever since Peugeot bought Citroen. We are going to see even more sharing in the future, this time between PSA and other companies. Look at the PSA/Ford developed diesels - shared between Pugs, Cits, Jags, Range Rover, Ford, Toyota - and the PSA/BMW developed petrol/turbo engines shared between Pugs, Cits, and Mini.

    They just got a few letters wrong - kw instead of bhp.

    the 1.6 n-a engine produces 110bhp and 149nm torque
    the 1.6 turbo produces 150bhp and 240nm torque
