PEUGEOT and SAMSONITE Launch Hand Luggage

PEUGEOT added to its range of lifestyle products and asserting its upmarket position with a cabin case signed with its new logo. Based on the rigid SAMSONITE C-Lite model, the new suitcase is resistant, light, and practical with four wheels, making it ideal for weekends or business trips.

This new multi-purpose suitcase, made in Europe, adds to the PEUGEOT luggage line, as well as the range of clothing and products signed with the new brand identity.
