With all the rumors about German-built Citroens and re-badged French MPVs, it’s time to do what North American car lovers do best; cast a greedy eye upon vehicles we can’t get, and talk about how much we’d like them.
The Opel Zafira and Citroen C5 are hardly the most exciting vehicles in the PSA stable. If it were up to me, I’d have the brand-new Peugeot 208 assimilate the Sonic in a Borg like manner. It’s not that the Sonic is a bad car, but the Francofied-GTI is an enticing prospect, and the combined engineering staff of PSA and GM could add in a sedan version for our market.
Initially, I would have said bring the new DS Range over, but they might be a little too French. The range of small commercial vehicles on the other hand, may be just right if the Fiat Doblo comes out as a Ram to do battle with the Ford Transit Connect. What would you want to see integrated into GM’s lineup. Alternately, what junk would you foist on the French as punishment for the crap they inflicted on us?
