This car rested itself by the side of the road today. It´s a Kia Ceed. It´s a smart, neat and tidy bit of work. Sure, the waistline rises too steeply and small children will hate sitting in the back of it. But, is this not evidence that Peugeot could have done something more in keeping with their tradition of nicely understated designs than they have been lately? I´ve posted a 1997 306 for comparison.
