There’s a lot of worry floating around the future of the French car makers, and Peugeot in particular who’ve recently had an unpleasant episode involving the CAC 40 index. For a couple of years now however, we keep hearing about the way they’d all be creating a set of more luxurious products and move at [...]
If it’s fun you’re looking for but you have no interest in breaking the bank on a purchase, all you need to do is go to the French. For a decently small amount of money, they’ll hook you up with a pocket rocket like you wouldn’t believe. All the fun, without too much of a [...]
The French have had quite the success story with their DS3 model and the Racing version has created quite the stir among journalists and reviewers.

In hoping to fight off some of that bad luck, [...]
After a few issues with the French Government, Renault found themselves in the process of making more luxury cars. For an uncommon idea, it’s starting to look like inspiration could be coming from South Korea. Going from making cheap hatchbacks to mid-level and luxury cars is something the Koreans have been doing brilliantly lately so [...]
With the New York Auto Show constantly surprising us you’d expect that Citroen would have a new model ready to be unveiled as preshow to it, but you’d be wrong. Citroen gave us a new crossover, called it special since it’s part of the DS family and they plan to reveal it, shock of shocks, [...]
