The China-made Peugeot 2008 SUV has arrived at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show where it will debut tomorrow, but we got it one day earlier.

A very sleek Citroen C-Quatre sedan, seen on the Wufang Tianya Automobile Parts City in east Beijing. The good vehicle was wrapped in a matte blue wrap and slightly sexed up further by LED-strips in the lower grille. The wrap was of mediocre quality but matched nicely with the license plates, and was neatly extended over the bumpers and mirrors.

An extremely pretty Citroen Fukang, seen on a remote location just inside the Fifth Ring Road in east Beijing. The good vehicle was painted in Pink, no wrapping here, and white, and further sexed up with a giant body kit that includes two huge wings at the back. Best of all however are the rear windows that are painted in green. Best of those is the rear windshield which has a pink heart painted on the green paint.
