When Jaguar’s new XJ hit the car show circuit, many found themselves remarking that the latest big cat bears more than a striking resemblance to the Citroen design language. No surprise then, that Citroen’s sister brand has built a concept version of a forthcoming midsized sedan that bears a number of similar styling cues. Thanks to Ian Callum’s adventurous experiment, the Five by Peugeot Concept can almost be compared to an XJ, which is more than can be said for any American-market midsize sedan. Perhaps we could still learn a thing or two from the French.

    What an amazing feat, they managed to crib the current Maxima and previous-gen Maxima all in one vehicle.

    They can't sell this as a Peugeot , it deserves a more up-market brand-name. I can't be the only person who still wonders if the new XJ looks as questionable in the metal as it does in photos.The middle is OK , but the front isn't right and the back is indescribable.
