Compact SUVs seem to be the hottest among the lot of late. Almost every car manufacturer is running behind to develop a compact SUV and Peugeot is not the one behind to join  the race. Multiple times tested model which could not make it to the Auto Expo is now known to undergo a transformation to emrge out in an SUV disguise. Well, this doesn’t mean that it will drop its original skin, which is a hatchback through and through. What the car manufacturer seems to adopt is by the sidelines of a hatchback, to tap the growing demand for the compact SUVs in the market. So, we suppose it is not wrong to assume  that Peugeot will use the same pricing strategy  as Ford EcoSport or Renault Duster which sits in the same price bracket for the proposed Peugeot 208 SUV.
