Peugeot or Citroen - hmmm they all look so different, or do they?

I have to share something with all of you out there.
Now I understand there are folk out there who will only buy a certain trademark of car, let's say Citroen or Peugeot, not looking at any other make. Well, yesterday I was walking with hubby when we passed two cars, same colour, parked next to each other. It wouldn't have been a biggie, but the problem was they were IDENTICAL! What's the issue you might ask, well they weren't the same make, but had different badges on them. 
I didn't take a photo of the cars, but I should have. So I have googled some images to show you what I mean....make up your own mind. Hopefully it will show you that everything more-or-less comes from the same wholesaler, so shop around! I mean I checked out the price differences in these two models and you are looking at a difference of Fr.4000.- for the SAME car - different make - I think not!
Peugeot 107
Citroen C1
The only difference is the colour of the tail lights, Peugeot has them red, Citroen Colourless!

The only slight difference is the light shapes!

  1. I've come across this in bigger models too - our VW Sharan is amost identical to the SEAT - apparently they (and the Ford) have the same chassis!

    1. Hi Truly Myrtle,
      It wouldn't be that bad if they were kept at the same price, so you could choose your favourite make so-to-speak, but the difference in price is quite cheeky - they want you to believe that the one is better than the other, which I don't think would be the case, especially if they are made by the same wholesaler!
      Thanks for visiting.

  2. The Toyota Aygo is the same car as the C1 and 107 as well....

    1. Hi Steve,
      That is a bit sad, Toyota is my favourite brand of car :(.
      I do have to agree with you though, especially the interior - it is awfully similar.
      Thanks for visiting.
