At first glance, the new PEUGEOT 508 surprises onlookers with an energetic and expressive presence. The car’s height has been reduced – it now barely reaches 1.40 m – and the aerodynamic lines of the vehicle are reminiscent of the coupé style.

The front end is impressive, even aggressive. The finely fashioned, radiator grill with chrome-plated chequerboard asserts itself between the Full LED headlights, inspiration for which was drawn straight from the brand’s latest concept car: PEUGEOT Instinct. With the famous lion centred on its radiator grill and the 508 logo upon the nose of the bonnet, the new PEUGEOT 508 pays tribute to its acclaimed predecessors, the PEUGEOT 504 and 504 coupé.

The vertical visual signature of the opalescent LED daytime running lights provides a distinct, exclusive identity. Sharp and slender, they frame the car’s front end, running from the headlights to the bumper’s air intakes.

The horizontal bonnet has been lowered as much as possible to enhance the dynamism of the new PEUGEOT 508 and the overall silhouette has been designed to appeal from every angle. This attention to bodywork design is usually reserved for the most premium of vehicles. All of these standout features at the front of the new PEUGEOT 508 culminate to give the car a real sense of quality and character, all of which are perfectly aligned with modern PEUGEOT design language.

The roof line of the new PEUGEOT 508 is low and sleek, following the premium sector design cues. The car appears compact: its length is limited to 4.75 m, vs 4.83m of the outgoing car, for improved manoeuvrability. The low glazed surfaces further sharpen the car’s outline and reveal frameless doors. Nothing spoils the model’s silhouette: there is no conventional overlap of the bonnet, glazing support and door frames; gap and flush-fitting have been reduced in size with first-class know-how; the wheels have been adjusted to perfectly fill the wheel arches; and the roof aerial has been removed (now silk-screened). PEUGEOT has utilised its expert knowledge to maximise the car’s aesthetic appeal and quality.

The new PEUGEOT 508 enjoys the new-generation Euro 6.d-temp PureTech and Blue HDi engines.

These levels of performance are all the more remarkable as they take into account new technical provisions and the WLTP procedure, which seeks to harmonise test approved consumption levels and customer-usage consumption levels.

As such, there are two new petrol options (depending on destination), developed based on the 1.6L PureTech engine:

– PureTech 180 S&S EAT8
– PureTech 225 S&S EAT8 (GT version only) Related to the sport mode of electronic suspension, this solution provides zest and responsiveness worthy of the GT label.

Four diesel options are available in the range (depending on destination), built based on the 1.5L and 2.0L BlueHDi engines:

– BlueHDi 130 S&S 6-speed manual, which is the entry-level engine and the only one offering a six-speed manual gearbox
– BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8
– BlueHDi 160 S&S EAT8
– BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT8
