Peugeot unveils all-new 508

Peugeot has unveiled a new saloon auto that it says will shake up the D-segment it feels has been stagnant for the last four years.

Judging by these photos, the new Peugeot 508 has received a modern exterior design a bit in the style of a coupe, which, of course, will attract more buyers.

Prices for the new 508 range will be announced closer to the car's launch, which is expected in the summer of 2018. And yes, the new LED daytime running lights do look as if a lion (or two) made a decision to attack the vehicle... Reminiscing of the past, the grille lion is doubled by the 508 lettering on the bonnet, the rear lights sport a completely different design yet seem somehow related to other new entries in the family - and the frameless doors again hint at the upmarket reposition of the model. You also need to pay attention to the audio Focal. It also comes with a large 10-inch touchscreen angled towards the driver, as well as i-Cockpit Amplify that allows the driver to choose between two levels of ambiance - "boost" and "relax". Motivating its upscale reposition, Peugeot offers perks such as massage seats, leather, Alcantara and even real wood finishes.

Driver assistance systems will also feature heavily on the vehicle, including a night-vision setup.

Peugeot has taken their rather bland 508 and waved some "Fastback" magic - inspired by the Peugeot Instinct Concept we saw at Geneva a year ago - to deliver a auto they believe will take the fight to anyone - premium makers included.

All of the engine options will be hooked up to an eight-speed automatic to drive the front wheels. Perhaps it will be 1.5 - and 2.0 l petrol and diesel engines. As for a jacked-up 508 RXH version, chances are Peugeot won't offer it anymore given that the current model has been far from a sales hit.
