Peugeot HX1

I'm afraid there's no getting away from it - buying an MPV is basically an admission that you've given up; that you need to ferry the kids around in something safe (and occasionally take your garden waste to the tip) but your wife won't let you buy an RS4 Avant, or that you've just plain stopped giving a shit what you drive. Sad times.
The Peugeot HX1 concept is here to change all of that. You may have a busy lifestyle that involves carting around a lot of gear, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for a Picasso or a Zafira. Just look at its razor-edged lines, its short 'n' sporty overhangs, its hipline that rises in a provocatively sultry manner. It kind of echoes the Lamborghini Estoque, if you squint a bit. It's a sexy car.
Yet it'll comfortably seat six people. What's more, it's smartly eco-focused, with a low drag coefficient and clever vanes that pop out of the alloys' spokes to turn the wheels into aero discs at speed. So don't worry about your rapacious, unstoppable virility - the future will provide machinery for transporting your offspring that won't make you look like a tedious arse. Peugeot promise.
