Ze Germans may be known for their efficiency, but try this on for size: French automaker Peugeot is gearing up to replace two sedans with – wait for it – just one! Feigned enthusiasm aside, this is the one that stands to take the job, and it's a pretty sharp looking sedan.
More telling, however, though dubbed a concept car, the 5 by Peugeot looks fairly close to production-ready status, especially compared to design studies like the RC HyMotion4 concept, another four-door concept from Peugeot unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2008. Oh, and we're disregarding the lack of any interior on this show car.
We expect a production version of the 5 by Peugeot to replace both the 407 and 607 within the next couple of years. In the meantime – particularly since Peugeot doesn't market in North America – you can take a closer look in the gallery below.
