I'd have to go with the Peugeot. I guess I"m not really supposed to like a French car, but frankly it's just a nice looking vehicle.

BMW isn't in this comparo buddy. Otherwise if we could just bring in any other car, I'd go with Cadillac or Lincoln.

Yeah, I'm stickin with the Peugeot.

DEFINITLY the Peugeot! Calibra is just so.....anonymous... 406 Coupe is gorgeous.

Calibra is like a bad fusion between a Volvo C70 and a Subaru SVX.

No contest… the Peugeot is way better, its not even in its class, opel is much older… this Calibra is a limited Edition its Turbo charger, and engines these cars have are not kick ass…. They have been having some problems with these cars… its probably the most unreliable Opel….

The Peugeot, it looks like a civilised Modena, It can/could be had with a 2.2 litre HDi engine, which can be easily tweaked up to about 170 BHP, without spoiling refinement and economy.

The Peugeot because it is a beauty. It also has that sweet 3 litre V6 under the bonnet.

Yeah, that's not a very good picture of the Puggy. Get it in red, yellow, or blue, and it's a real looker. Probably one of the best looking modern designs from anyone, I rank it up there with the Lincoln Town Car and the really roundy Ford Taurus that everyone hates as one of my fav designs of recent years. Those three actually comprise my top three best looking modern cars list, with an honorable mention to the '94-'96 Cad Fleetwood.

Welcome to UCP, I hope you did not only become a member to make this rather obvious statement
