THE NEW FACE OF ATTRACTION WITH THE NEW 508
With the new 508, available in sedan, SW and PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED versions, PEUGEOT reveals a new design for its top-of-the-range silhouettes. The front end is innovative with even more dynamism and bears the brand's new emblem at its heart.
THE NEW FACE OF ATTRACTION WITH THE NEW 508
The range of engines powering the new PEUGEOT 508 and 508 SW includes two rechargeable hybrid versions, a new 180bhp and a 225bhp version, a 130bhp petrol version and a 130bhp diesel version. All engines are combined with the 8-speed EAT8 automatic gearbox.
The standard-bearer of neo-performance, the 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED plug-in hybrid version has 360bhp and 4-wheel drive.
ALLURE: a dynamic and modern silhouette
These new 508s make the front end more modern by fully integrating the grille motif into the volume of the bumper, with evolving patterns and the use of body colour to further assert this new design.
The new PEUGEOT crest is naturally in the centre of the grille, with the pattern radiating outwards from this signature.
The front end also has a less stratified design, adding to the more modern look. The beam disappears inside the grille and gives the silhouette a smoother look.
On the 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED version, the grille is precise, alternating between glossy and textured black, sharp and feline. The Kryptonite signature with three claws stands alone at the end of the bonnet.
Matrix LED technology, standard across the range, optimises the design of the headlamps, which are extremely slim to support a feline look, sharper than ever before on a PEUGEOT. These headlamps were designed in a single piece and represent a technological achievement by integrating the new DRL signature with 3 claws and a 3D effect that adds depth.
The new 508s are based a long wheelbase of 2.79m and overall length of 4.75m (Saloon) and 4.79m (SW), for a width of 1.86m with the mirrors folded down.
Side-on, the natural vibrancy of the new 508 and 508 SW is enhanced by a new aluminium wheel, named EPHERRA, with a diameter of 18 inches and a diamond pattern that combines design and efficiency.
All the aluminium wheels are fitted with a 5-spoke wheel centre stamped with the PEUGEOT crest with the wheel nuts completely concealed..
The front, side and rear badges of the new 508 are more modern with new typography and a new Basalt Grey colour.
At the rear, the light signature is a reinterpretation of the three claws theme in a more horizontal and dynamic version. These full LED lights with scrolling flashing are standard across the entire range.
The emblem has been replaced by a dark Basalte Grey “PEUGEOT” badge that extends across the entire width of the central black strip. This contributes to modernising and visually broadening the rear end.
EMOTION on board: well-being and comfort
The new PEUGEOT 508 offers a wide range of equipment designed to help you fully experience the joy of travel and mobility.
The front seats are particularly comfortable and have been awarded the AGR (Aktion für Gesunder Rücken) label by an independent German association of experts in ergonomics and back health. The label recognises both the ergonomics and the range of adjustment of the front seats
The seats can also be equipped with electric adjustments with two possible memory settings for the driver, as well as a pneumatic massage with eight different programs (including three new ones), and seat heating.
The seats have been designed to highlight the quality of the materials used, with two new upholsteries as standard for the ALLURE and GT trims, a TEP/Textile for the first trim level and a TEP/Alcantara® for the GT trim.
Two Nappa Leather trims (Mistral or Red) are also available as an option, with a new embossed lion in the front headrests.
On the PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED trim level, there is specific upholstery with the addition of a Kryptonite-coloured signature thread, which also highlights the dashboard, armrests and the foam pads of the console.
Between the front seats, the centre console extends to a dedicated slot for wireless phone charging. The rest of the console is entirely devoted to storage and practicality with two large diameter cup holders. Under the armrest there are two USB C sockets (charge/data) and up to 6.4 litres of storage space.
