Here's the Urban Crossover Concept from Peugeot, and they brought it out for show at the Beijing Motor Show. Its the automaker's proposal for a global SUV in the B-segment.

The automaker says that the world's increasing population will have 5.3 billion people living in mega cities. Compact cars are well suited to city transport, but they have to evolve in order to cover the owner's needs for both in and out of the urban environment.

Peugeot’s design teams in Paris, Shanghai and Sao Paolo developed the Urban Crossover and according to the company, the concept "marries the elegance and refinement of a saloon, the cheekiness, the mischievousness of an SUV, with the multi-role capability and unusual spaciousness for this market segment.”

Check out a video of it below and a couple more shots of it in the gallery:
