Which Car Is Better?

I'm thinking of purchasing a new car, but I can't decide on buying the Peugeot 107 or the Citroen C1.

Which should I go for?

Why do you hate British workers?

Neither of those manufacturers have a British assembly plant, by buying one of their cars you are denying work to true Brits.

You'll have to buy an Aston Martin instead.

I find that interesting considering he was all a twitter about Britain paying a Japanese company to install high speed rail. Hmm, talks the talk but can't walk the walk.

My advice? Don't buy a French car.

You forgot the option of "Don't buy either one of these pieces of junk."

He also has monumentally poor taste in cars

Peugeot lower-end cars have a big theft-from-motor-vehicle issue if your area is prone to that - I'm not gonna go into the precise details of how one does it but there's a particular issue with the doors which makes them easy-access for your local burglar bill.

Clearly a plot dreamed up by the French and the Japanese to get us to buy more car stereos.

Re: Which Car Is Better?

Well I've never driven either one, but all the the reviews I've read pretty much have them at a wash, but I think the Citroen looks better so...

Neither!

But if you must buy the Citroën. At least it doesn't have a stupid grin on the front like the Peugot does.

Re: Which Car Is Better?

I don't think you all get what i'm saying here.

Both those cars are completely the same barring the citroen/peugeot badges. There's no difference to the cars at all.

Citroen C1

Peugeot 107

So on what basis does one choose which is best?

On a side note, since posting this thread i've actually taken a fancy to the VW Fox.

What, so they're the same car? The hell with them then, go with the Fox instead of anything related to Peugot!!!

I think he's just had a run-in with Kristin Scott Thomas.
