We believe that this will be one of the products in Peugeot’s product lineup when it comes to India around 2018-2019. It will slot into the C-segment and compete with the Honda City, Nissan Sunny, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. It will be offered as an alternative body style to the 3008 crossover.

Moving inside, we can see a black and grey combination with a flat bottom steering wheel as well as a driver oriented dashboard. Standard features appear to include climate control, touchscreen infotainment system and a variety of driver aids.
