New Peugeot 508 hits GenevaMarch 5, 2018
Not only does the 508 feature a “bold new low coupe design” according to the French automaker, but it also comes with advanced driver assistance systems such as the night vision system, which relies on an infrared camera to detect pedestrians during low visibility conditions.
In the metal, the 508 is a pretty big breath of fresh air, according to our boots on the ground. Compared to its predecessor, the new model is more practical thanks to the fastback body style, but also more elegant, due tot he sloping roof, frameless doors and high shoulder line.
It’s worth mentioning that there are multiple 508 specs present at the Palexpo convention center in Geneva – Allure, GT Line, First Edition, each bringing something a little different to the table. For example, the First Edition model comes with black mirrors caps and black wheels, just like the GT Line, which boasts a sportier steering wheel inside, with perforated leather and a GT Line badge.
Peugeot will initially offer five power units at launch for the 508, with two petrol options rated at 180 PS (177 HP) and 225 PS (222 HP), and three diesels, good for 130 PS (128 HP), 160 PS (158 HP) and 180 PS (176 HP). A plug-in hybrid version will join the range later on this year.
