Leaving the icon exhibit at the 5th Philippine International Motor Show was presented some difficulty. The organisers – CAMPI – had seen fit to introduce the show with Philippine motoring icons, and it wasn’t particularly easy to turn away from their compelling choices. If you are, however, still unsure about the choice of icons, then perhaps entering the show floor will provide part of the answer.
If you’ve gone to any store that stocks magazines in the past month or two, you’ve probably noticed the big splash Peugeot is making. Maybe you’ve even encountered an example of the very pretty 208 hatchback, the eccentric 3008 minivan, or the slick 508 executive sedan. Yup, the French automaker is making big news, and while they may need to release an educational campaign telling people how to correctly pronounce their brand, this is really not the first time they’ve been available in the country.
