Renault Megane RS275 vs Peugeot 308 GTI 270

A weapon’s potency can only be properly determined once it’s clear what it’s up against. After all, Attila the Hun conquered most of Europe with swords, bows and arrows, but would’ve been badly outmatched in Desert Storm. So while Peugeot

Peugeot's decade of madness

When you think of Peugeot, what springs to mind? French, obviously, stylish design maybe, and probably practical, thanks to cars like the 308 hatchback or 2008 SUV. Crazy doesn’t necessarily leap to mind, but for about a decade Peugeot had

Peugeot 205 GTI vs 208 GTI 30th Anniversary

Delinquent behaviour is rarely tolerated, much less rewarded. When a puppy performs backyard excavation works, it doesn’t get a Schmacko. Should a bully throttle a nerd, school captaincy is unlikely. And if a work colleague supports Donald Trump then gets

Peugeot 308 GT

It was bound to happen. Try as it might, Peugeot couldn’t make it through a launch presentation without mentioning the venerable 205 GTi. This is despite stressing to us, in no uncertain terms, that the new 308 GT is NOT

Peugeot 308 GTI

Three years after the 208 GTi interrupted the two-decade wake lamenting the passing of the 205 original, Peugeot has now returned to the tombstone marked ‘R.I.P 306 GTI-6’. It’s been 15 years since that last hot 3-series Pug, and unfortunately

$0-50K | Peugeot 208 GTi 30th #2
