Peugeot and FC merge

I've seen a couple of blurbs about a merger of these companies. They suggest we won't be getting (m)any new cars in the US. That's too bad as they have some cool ones to offer.

PSA seem to be going from strength to strength, they're becoming huge with all these mergers. There was rumours they were interested in buying Land Rover, but I think that's been confirmed false now. I really like Peugeot and DS Automobiles in the PSA brand.

My latest favourite new model from PSAs luxury brand DS Automobiles is the new DS3 Crossback. It has a striking design and quirky features like pop out door handles, luxury interiors with HUD, night vision cameras and fully customisable digital displays. Also available in fully electric form.

My experiences of Peugeot, FIAT and Chrysler would indicate that they are a good match for each other.

One person's thoughts on cars they should bring to the US.

Some very nice cars there, including the aforementioned DS3 Crossback, the beautiful 508 station wagon which has to be the best looking Estate car ever, and nice to see my 308 gti there too.

Personally, I think the estate looks horrible. I think it has more to do with the angle the photograph has been taken from. Probably looks a lot better in the flesh (metal!).

Yea not a very flattering angle. The estate looks better from the rear in my opinion.

I'm hoping they make the 400 ish BHP plug in hybrid model that's been rumoured, a car with that much power but can still do 36 electric only miles would suit my world perfectly. Electric for the boring every day get to work stuff, then fun and power for the weekends. Yes please.
