The world just wants to know about crossovers and SUVs, but a Peugeot is not there. At least at the time of creating concepts, as is the case with Instinct. Presentedat the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, the vehicle is a wagon, or a draft brake, as the brand prefers to call it. And that’s not the only laudable aspect of the new model.
The presentation at the handset fair should want to associate Peugeot with technological developments, as in the case of presentations at CES in Las Vegas. And Instinct has its news to present in this field as well. It has unmanned steering capability, according to the manufacturer.
Notice that the interior does not have a steering wheel, apparently, but this is due to the autonomous driving mode, which collects it down the instrument panel. And you should also pick up the pedals, since we only see one of them in the image. This, according to Peugeot, would be the new generation of i-Cockpit. And it will bring what the French brand calls “chatbot,” a personal voice assistant. Like Siri, on iPhones, but probably more advanced.
Peugeot did not detail the car in its presentation in Barcelona. Maybe this is reserved for his appearance in Geneva. For now, what we know is that the Instinct has a hybrid powertrain that gives it 305 hp, or 224 kW. In fact, it is better to call the Instinct “her”. This is a lady wagon. One that may perhaps guide us around, but which we would rather drive.
