The Peugeot 2019 takes a few styling cues from the supermini such as the swept-back headlights with LED daytime running lights, bold chrome grille, and defined creases around the sculpted sheet metal
The 2019′s impressive five-star Euro NCAP safety rating is thanks to a comprehensive array of active and safety features. On the active front, the list includes ESP, ABS with EBD, and emergency brake assist. Passive safety embraces a full complement of airbags (front, side, and curtain), as well as I so fix child seat tethers, seatbelt fastens warnings, automatic locking on pull-off, a rear parking sensor, and electrically activated child locks for the rear doors.
Just five months after its European debut the Peugeot 2019 garnered the prestigious Auto Europa award by the Italian Association of Motoring Journalists. The jury singled out interior design, on-board technology, frugal fuel consumption and its advanced Grip Control system among the compact crossover’s main attributes. In fact, the 2019 beat the Fiat 500L and Citroën’s C4 Picasso to the post. The Polish motoring magazine, Auto Swiat, also honoured 2019 with its Golden Steering Wheel award while in Ireland it garnered the 2019 Irish Car of the Year award – with the Peugeot brand picking up seven Irish Coty awards in just four years.
The 2019′s overhangs are longer, allowing for a larger boot – 360 liters of cargo space, which is expandable to 1,194 liters with the seats folded down
In effect, the awards underscore the 2019′s 100 000 sales after the compact crossover made its global debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The milestone was achieved in February this year – only 10 months after officially going on sale in European markets in April 2019. Demand since then has been so strong that production was increased on three occasions – with daily production now totaling 680 units.
No doubt, the 2008′s popularity has much to do with its reputation for safety gained mainly via the Euro NCAP safety five-star rating across the adult occupant, child occupant, and pedestrian categories. Contributing to the five-star rating was the 208′s comprehensive array of active and passive safety equipment from electronic stability control, cruise control with speed limiter, to disc brakes all round, a full complement of six airbags and three Isofix child seat tethers.
16-inch wheels anchor the high-riding look of the car
The overriding trend in the new vehicle market at present is in favor of smaller cars, greater affordability, and enhanced economy – but without compromising on comfort or safety.
The Peugeot Premium Plan that links a three-year/100 000km warranty to a five-year/60 000km maintenance plan, as well as Peugeot’s unwavering commitment to customer service and satisfaction, enhances the 2019′s good value for money proposition.
Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition – At Frankfurt Motor Show which is gonna be held this fall, the Stuttgart-based automaker has confirmed to bring their new performance-oriented vehicle line ups, including the 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo, 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S, and the most powerful on the line ups 2019 Porsche 911 GT3. Full details about the three new vehicle have been thrown to the media, but surprisingly it turns out that the company will bring another vehicle to the show and also bring it to the dealer by the end of this year, not an all-new model or the next generation one, but a special 911 model to celebrate 50th anniversary of the 911’s Porsche line ups.
Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition will be offered in three impressive colors, Graphite Grey, Black Monochrome, and Lighter Geyser Grey Metallic. The special 911 is more like a combination of 911 Carrera S’ rear-wheel drive with a wide body of 911 Carrera 4 models. All 911 50th Anniversary Edition will be attached by a special 50th Anniversary badge on the lid. The special car also gets other distinctive exterior features to boost its exclusivity, including front air inlets with chrome accents, Porsche’s dynamic light system which consists of bi-xenon headlights and dynamic cornering lights, high-gloss window frames, sporty mirrors, and door panels. 20-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels finished in matte black paint with the machine-polished center also fitted into the car’s profile. People will directly recognize that the wheels actually represent the legendary Fuchs wheels that featured in the first 911 back then in 1963.
The back-to-basics theme of Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition seems to continue to the cabin, where the nostalgia comes from the main gauges graphic that represents the original 911s with that basic green-on-black motif, white pointer, and silver caps. The 60s era atmosphere is strengthened by the Pepita plaid design covering either the standard 14-way or 18-way power sport seats or sports seats plus the center panels while the rest decoration also fit best with the retro sensation.
The old stuff should stop on the upper part because under the hood, the Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition will use the most update 3.8 L V6 engine. Like the other Porsche 911’s line ups, it will run from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds with its 400 hp and reach a top speed of 186 mph with standard seven-speed manual transmission. The company also offers a power kit option that will make more power to 430 hp and including seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and Sport Chrono package which brings it from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
Typical of a special-occasion car, the Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition will be manufactured limitedly only for 1,963 units, which represents the year where the 911 model is first debuted, with a base price of $125,050. It is more expensive than the 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet.
