The Geneva Motor Show picture is getting clearer and larger with Peugeot's advance reveal of the 208 XY concept (pictured above) and 208 GTi concept (right). Both are based on the 208 hatch and are meant to represent Peugeot's move upscale, but each has a different audience: the XY is for urbanites, the GTi for those who miss the hot-hatch legend.

The XY uses a 115-horsepower diesel hybrid for motivation and six-speed manual transmission. All that lies under sixteen layers of paint and varnish to create its Pulsion exterior hue. Inside, black leather with crimson trim joins an elevated instrument panel perched atop the dash lined with crimson light.

The GTi is a throwback to the slips. It gets numerous tips of the hat to its racing forebear, including a French or a British flag painted on the lower grille, a subtle checkered-flag pattern underneath the clearcoat on the hood and roof, Nappa leather seats with cloth inserts and an Alcantara-topped dashboard.

Follow the jump for a press release with lots of details, and get closer looks before our Geneva report in the gallery of high-res images.Continue reading Peugeot reveals XY and GTi concepts ahead of Geneva
