Breaking the mould of the traditional, four door saloon silhouette this exciting new model combines a bold new low coupé design with the enhanced practicality of five doors.
Its striking new look takes inspiration from a sports coupé, with sharp side window design, elegant frameless doors and alloy wheels designed to fill the wheel arch housings. With its sharp exterior design, beautifully appointed, premium interior and the very latest generation of the Peugeot i-Cockpit®, the all-new Peugeot 508 delivers a whole new driving experience to D-segment car buyers.
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 flagship model comes equipped with class-leading levels of advanced 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.”
Customers will be able to test drive and order the new generation of Peugeot’s flagship model around August with first deliveries expected a few months later.
