The Geneva Motor Show will see Peugeot reveal its all-new 508, sporting what the company describes as a radical new aerodynamic design. It “combines a bold new low coupé design with the enhanced practicality of five doors”.
There is an integrated rear hatch, offering a significantly larger aperture to the 487-litre boot whilst carrying all the hallmark features of the latest Peugeot vehicles, including the full LED ‘claw-effect’ rear lights.rs.
Inside, it contains the three main characteristics of the Peugeot i-Cockpit, including the compact, full grain leather trimmed steering wheel, a large 10-inch capacitive touchscreen angled towards the driver and a 12.3-inch head-up digital instrument panel. It also features i-Cockpit Amplify, which enables the driver to choose between two levels of ambience – “Boost” and “Relax”.
The new model is available with a range of six petrol and diesel engine / transmission combinations, covering 128 to 222 bhp
The new flagship model comes equipped with several driver assistance systems, including a new night vision system, which is new to the segment and uses an infrared camera with the ability to detect pedestrians at night and in cases of reduced visibility.
Jean-Philippe Imparato, CEO of Peugeot, said: “The all-new Peugeot 508 is finally here. After the success of our latest high profile launches and our SUV offensive with the multi-award winning Peugeot 2008 SUV, 3008 SUV and all-new 5008 SUV, with the all-new Peugeot 508 we carry the exact same ambition; to shake up the market with an outstanding new car that can compete with the best. And, for the D segment, we are talking about the best car manufacturers in the world. The all-new Peugeot 508 is a perfect example of the ambition that we embody in everything that we do; continuing to establish Peugeot as the best ‘high-end generalist’ car manufacturer in the market.”
The all-new Peugeot 508 will be available to order from summer 2018.
