A couple of weeks ago, we saw Citroën's sportified (looks-only) C1, the Chrono. This week, we get Peugeot's version, which looks a lot better. It's called the 107 Sport XS, but really, there's nothing excessive (or would that be "XSive"...) about it at all. Underneath its stubby little hood, it's still got the same miserly little 1.0L 3-cylinder that pumps 68 horses to the front wheels.
Instead of the Citroën's somewhat cheesy number decals, the little Pug sports racing stripes that are keyed to contrast the four available exterior colors. Additional bits include spoilers, a sport exhaust, and some red interior trim bits. No, you won't be setting the land speed record in one of these, but it'll look happy enough in its new-fangled threads. The million dollar question is whether or not Toyota will complete the trifecta and offer a similar package for the Aygo (Aygo, C1 and 107 are badge-engineered clones).
The best part about the 107 Sport XS is that when you're done driving it, you simply summon it back to its Pokéball and stick it in your pocket. No parking necessary!
More details in Peugeot's press release after the jump.
