The Peugeot 508 hasn’t been around all that long, having actually been introduced as a brand new model for the full-sized segment in 2011. It ultimately generated an Estate version and a crossover-like vehicle quickly thereafter. Now 6 years later on, it’s about time for something fresh. The 2018 Peugeot 508 will ride on Peugeot’s brand-new EMP2 platform, which is likewise found under the 308 and C4 Picasso. More notably, however, is the fact that it’s total style is changing a lot that it will in fact look more like a four-door coupe than a standard sedan. Motivation will come from a series of fuel and diesel engines, and there’s a plug-in hybrid being prepared also.
On sides, I can’t help but think Peugeot is aiming to troll Dumbo here. I imply, what is happening with those actually long mirrors? They extend from the corners of the doors for exactly what seems like permanently, which does not necessarily look bad but isn’t exactly attractive at this point, either. The door trim panels appear like they have actually been remodelled. From the look of things, the armrest is more angled than in the past. I have to question if this will in fact make the armrest much easier or more comfortable to utilize, however it does permit a bigger storage location down below. And, from exactly what I can make it, it appears like there’s a digital instrument cluster ahead of that guiding wheel. It could just be a big, horizontal screen between analog gauges, however we cannot make that much out. For that, we’ll simply have to wait and see. With any luck, the infotainment display screen in the center stack will be bigger, and less recessed, and could even offer some form of gesture control. Phone connectivity need to be a standard feature throughout the line.
Because the 508’s intro back in 2011, it has been offered with a series of gas and diesel motor. That’s not expected to change with the 2018 Peugeot 508, however, what engines will be is still a mystery as of the time of this writing. In current type, the 508 can be had with a 1.6-liter fuel mill that’s great for 162 horse power, a 1.6-liter diesel mill that’s great for 118 horse power, a 2.0-liter diesel great for 147.5 horsepower, or a 2.0-liter great for 178 horsepower. The latter of which is the only option offered for the range-topping 508 GT. A six-speed manual can be had for those who prefer to row their own, while those who choose a more automated experience can select the EAT6, six-speed automatic.
We anticipate to see debut the 2018 Peugeot 508 sometime in 2018. Thinking about the 2018 Peugeot 508 is set to be sportier and more spacious, it’s rather most likely that prices will increase across the board a bit. It shouldn’t leap much but anticipate to pay a bit more than exactly what you would if you bought an existing model at this moment in time.
