Newly released details of the new Peugeot 508 show it has been significantly updated to keep it at the cutting edge of the executive car market.
The new 508 features major changes in its styling and has been updated with the latest state-of-the-art technology, plus new cleaner engines. This stunning 'grand tourer' embodies Peugeot's move up-market.
The 508 proudly displays a bold new front grille, which Peugeot say will feature on future models. The 508 will also be fitted with new equipment such as a touch-screen infotainment system with reversing camera and blind spot sensors.
It also benefits from economical and efficient engines, such as the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 150 diesel with six-speed manual transmission with CO2 emissions of just 109g per km.
The interior of the Peugeot 508 has been significantly updated. Standard equipment now includes a seven-inch touch-screen that operates most of the vehicle's functions in an intuitive way. The instrument panel is backed up by a colour head-up display on RXH and GT models for driving and navigation information.
The Peugeot 508 has been available in three body styles since 2012: saloon, estate and RXH. The RXH comes with an exclusive hybrid engine and a robust stance for more versatility. However, it will be available with a diesel-only powertrain for the first time.
The 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 six-speed automatic RXH will join the rest of the 508 range in making its public debut at October's Paris Motor Show, and will be on sale soon after.
On the top-of-the-range RXH, GT and Allure versions, the front of the vehicle is characterised by new lighting. Headlamps, daytime running lamps, direction indicators and fog lamps are all created completely from hi-tech LEDs.
