Having owned several Hyundai cars and many Peugeot cars, including our new 108, I would have to say the build quality of the Hyundai is far superior, backed with a five year warranty, it is the sensible choice. But if you want cool then you have to look elsewhere.
Wife just had a front end shunt. A VW Golf in front of her in a queue of stationery traffic decided to reverse into her. Very low speed impact. Not a scratch on the Golf. The 108 looks like it was involved in a high speed collision. Bonnet, front wing, headlight, and some ancillary engine parts all knackered. Being repaired as I type. This tells me that the 108 is made from tin cans. Will be getting rid after 2 - 3 years.
At our age cool is not a major factor. Preserving life is more important. I reckon if that accident had happened at 30 MPH or faster, the car would have been written off, and the wife may have been no more!
