You might not be aware of it, but French automakers are steadily setting their world domination. This is proven by the recent favorable alliances of Renault with Japanese companies like Mitsubishi and Nissan, their attempt to consume Fiat Chrysler in 2019, plus Peugeot’s acquisitions of Opel and Vauxhall brands.
It is still uncertain whether all of us will be driving French cars in the future, but one thing is for sure that today their manufacturers produce some of the best looking models across multiple classes, they pioneer electric technology, their reliability standards match those of the competitors, while many of the high-tech features are offered at lower costs. Today we will give you a glimpse of the lineups from France that are arriving soon.
