It’s the all-new Suzuki Jimny, or ‘Jimmy’ as every smartphone and laptop auto-correct feature insists on calling it. Good luck Googling one of these if you decide you want one.

Citroën, a new brand identity and logo reveal

New Citroën brand identity and logo signal exciting, energetic and modern era to come.

Citroën revealed a fresh corporate brand identity and logo, signaling a bold, exciting and dynamic new era for the 103-year-old brand is underway as it accelerates its mission to make electric mobility accessible to all and extends its core DNA for affordability, audacity and customer wellbeing.

The new look reinterprets the original logo first adopted by founder André Citroën, inspired by the success of his first metalworking company producing chevron-shaped ’herringbone’ gear systems. The familiar and technical “deux chevrons” reference has remained at the heart of Citroën’s identity ever since.

The elegant new emblem signposts the brand’s transition and evolution, and will debut at the end of September on a significant conceptual Citroën family vehicle. Versions of it will then progressively enhance future Citroën production and concept vehicles from mid-2023 on. The prominent, enhanced vertical oval will introduce a new direction in design language in which the visually prominent

Trois ans se sont écoulés depuis le lancement de la deuxième et actuelle génération de la Peugeot 208. Une citadine compacte premium au look futuriste qui entend bien se tailler une part du lion (sans jeu de mots). Que vaut-elle face aux références de la catégorie comme la Renault Clio ou encore la Citroën C3 ? Réponse dans notre essai !

Design :

Pour sa deuxième vie, la Peugeot 208 a choisi un style plutôt tape-à-l’œil et le résultat est bluffant. A l’avant, on retrouve une grande calandre très expressive avec des feux de jours en forme de griffe de lion. Le profil est aussi bien élancé que musclé grâce à un gain de 9 cm en longueur et une perte de 3 cm en hauteur. Les passages de roues sculptés accentuent le caractère bestial de cette citadine.
