Geneva Motor Show: Triple debut for Peugeot models

PEUGEOT unveiled three new models at Geneva, as well as petrol and diesel sportscar concepts.

Production versions of the 206 SW and 307 SW were on display, following the concept cars that appeared at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show, together with the new 807 MPV, sharing much of its contents with the Citroen C8 and Fiat Ulysse.

The SW variants of the 206 and 307 (pictured) will go on sale in the UK in the spring, while the 807 is likely to be introduced in the autumn.

The 206 SW will be available with the same engine line-up as the 206 hatchback, but offers a dynamic looking estate with extra practicality, while the 307 SW includes some of the practicality offered in MPVs with the option of up to seven seats.

The 807 is part of PSA Peugeot-Citroen's partnership with Fiat, which also resulted in the first public showing of the Citroen C8 and new Fiat Ulysse.

Peugeot managing director Frederic Saint-Geours said last year was important for Peugeot with almost two million vehicles sold.

He said he expected to achieve a similar number in 2002 with the extra variants boosting Peugeot's offerings in niche areas.
