The finesse of the vehicle’s Advanced Full LED headlights with sequential scrolling indicators give it a piercing feline gaze whether in day or night, and its striking form is accentuated by a chrome insert on the front wings that extend to the headlights, homage to Peugeot’s HX1 Concept.
From the rear, the SUV gets raised body line and chromed roof arc trim at the quarter panel to exude an aerodynamic-savvy profile. In addition, Peugeot’s signature three-claw LED rear lights and an extra-wide tailgate on a low rear-end, plus 18-inch alloy Los Angeles wheels with two-tone diamond finish, steel roof and prominent black wheel arches complete the package.
