Peugeot's MPV concepts take pride of place at show

PEUGEOT gave pride of place to two concept versions of its smash-hit 206 supermini and new 307 models at the show.

But managing director Frederic Saint-Geours remained tight-lipped over the likelihood of the multi-purpose vehicles going into production.

'Elements of these vehicles may be seen in future production vehicles. I'd say there are design cues as to how an estate version of the 307 might appear,' was all he would say. Production of the current 306 estate is due to end next year and speculation is high that the high-roofed 307 SW will take its place as a family and fleet model.

With a full-size panoramic glass roof, the car boasts a particularly light and airy interior and its seating is described as multi-adjustable and easily removed to form a layout to match each journey.

On a wheelbase 10 centimetres longer than the standard 307, the SW's body is 11cm longer and stands slightly higher to provide more interior space.

Also rumoured to be close to production is the 206 SW, which combines a sporty appearance with practical motoring and looks a particularly attractive alternative to the standard supermini.
