When introduced, the 207 would compete with the likes of the Nissan Micra, new Suzuki Swift, Hyundai i20 and the facelifted Honda Jazz.
The Peugeot 508 will slug it out with the Honda Accord, Skoda Superb and the VW Passat on release.

Peugeots have always had very distinctive styling with their swept back headlights and flowing lines. And they have very good diesel engines in their stable.
Also, the fact that they are scouting for land to set-up a greenfield facility indicates that they are here for the long run.
Another interesting fact is that the 207 is also available as a sedan internationally. Would definetely expect it to be on its way here, especially considering our affinity for the three-box variants.
Ain't that sweet looking?
