The Paris Motor Show is Peugeot's big chance to show off its newest wares to the home crowd, and the company has a ton of vehicles on display at this year's exhibition. Unfortunately, the Exalt concept is one of the more lackluster of the bunch. With its long, low body, the sedan certainly isn't ugly. However, Peugeot already showed the Exalt at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year, and it hasn't done too much to change it for the City of Light.
It used to be that a concept car would make its big show debut, then maybe make the rounds of some smaller local shows and subsequently disappear. But recently automakers have been giving their show cars a new lease on life. Lexus did just that with the LF-LC concept, introducing it in red at the Detroit Auto Show and then repainting it blue for Sydney. Subaru has taken a similar approach with its Viziv concept, much as Mini did with the Rocketman. And now Peugeot is following suit with its Exal
Think of Peugeot and you're more likely to conjure up images of a budget hatchback than an evocative sports car, but the French marque has been known to produce some rather tempting forms, from the RCZ to its Onyx concept from 2012. Now, it looks poised to do it again with the Exalt concept seen here.
