Re-styled 508 range gets smart new design language

  • Enhanced safety with new standard-fitment reverse camera
  • New on-board tech including touch screen and 8GB jukebox
  • New, more powerful Euro 6-compliant 1.6L turbo petrol drivetrain

Peugeot has launched its updated 508 sedan and touring range in Australia, with major changes in exterior and interior styling, a new drivetrain option and increased standard specification.

Joining the 508 sedan range is Peugeot’s latest Euro 6 emissions-compliant 1.6-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol drivetrain. With stop-start technology it is one of the most frugal vehicles in its class*.

The drivetrain increases power, yet reduces emissions and fuel use, while offering improved acceleration.

The most notable styling addition is a bold new front grille, with center-mounted Peugeot lion, new LED lighting package and revised rear lights and bumpers.

On board technology is increased with a new touch-screen infotainment system, satellite navigation and reversing camera that is now offered as standard.

All new 508 models gain paddle shifters, electric boot release (for sedans), rear center armrest with two cup holders and rear map lights.

Active grades also receive part cloth/leather interior as standard.

Touring variants gain an additional 12 volt outlet in the rear cargo area and a retractable cargo net that drops from the roof, joining to the rear seat.

NEW-LOOK EXTERIOR – 508

All 508 models receive a fresh face, with new frontal styling including new front guards, bonnet, headlamps, grille and bumper treatment.

An increase in overall vehicle length front and rear has resulted in a better visual balance of the vehicle. The sedan is now 38mm longer, 16mm of which is in the front overhang (the same for Touring), and 22mm longer in the rear overhang.

The new grille is an essential element of the Peugeot 508’s styling. Standing further upright and with the inclusion of Peugeot’s famous lion rampant at its center, it is pays tribute to illustrious models from the French marque’s 124 year history building automobiles.

It also allows the new Peugeot 508 to introduce a corporate style to its leading edge that is more self-assured and which will be deployed on the marque’s future models.

The bonnet has been redesigned to make it more horizontal, giving the 508 a more contemporary look.

Front bumpers now feature integrated daytime running lamps lower, which also double as the indications and over score the standard LED fog lamps.

At the rear, the sedan features a newly designed bumper and lighting package.

Chrome highlights draw vision downward, adding to the visual muscle of the vehicle.

Boot volumes remain unchanged at 497 litres for the sedan and 612 litres for the Touring.

A NEW LIGHTING SIGNATURE

Top-of-the-range 508 Allure and GT variants are characterised by new lighting.

Headlamps, daytime running lamps, direction indicators and fog lamps are all created completely from hi-tech LEDs.

In total, there are no less than 44 LEDs making up the look of the new Peugeot 508.

The headlamps are made up of three modules of four LEDs each, to which three additional LEDs are added for the cornering lighting function.

This technology allows the lighting to be fine-tuned and also accentuates the vehicle’s feline look.

The small size and very structured lenses enhance the distinctive and technological aspects.

Each car’s visual signature is created by the daytime running lamps built into the bumper as standard.

The indicators comprise four LEDs following the form of the daytime running lamps.

The standard front LED foglamps are installed in the ends of the front bumper in a chrome insert.

For Active models the new Peugeot 508 introduces halogen headlamps with excellent photometric performance.

The other lamps, including daytime running lamps, direction indicators and side lamps, are identical to the top-of-the-range versions.

Rear lamps on sedans have also been redesigned to make them more horizontal than before, whether viewed from the side or from directly behind.

Each contains 36 LEDs arranged in three claws and their opalescent red layout provides a lighting signature that is strongly identifiable and technological.
