Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.


The European segment of this run of Generation Gap previously featured a venerable line of family sedans produced by well known manufacturer Peugeot.
