Peugeot unveiled the ‘5 by Peugeot' at Geneva, and despite referring to the number ‘5' in English in an otherwise French-spoken presentation, this large sedan - the basis for the forthcoming 407 replacement known as the ‘508' - marked an attempt to hark back to the days of more restrained French elegance than some of the firm's more recent offerings.

Proton and Giugiaro jointly revealed the concept version for a new city car that will become the Malaysian national car-maker's first hybrid model at the Geneva motor show this week.
Laguna Coupe aside, the new Renault Wind is arguably the French brand's best-designed production car for many years.
