The Peugeot 508 hasn’t been around all that long, having actually been introduced as a brand new model for the full-sized section in 2011. It ultimately generated an Estate variation and a crossover-like vehicle shortly afterwards. Now 6 years later on, it’s about time for something fresh. The 2018 Peugeot 508 will ride on Peugeot’s new EMP2 platform, which is likewise found under the 308 and C4 Picasso. More notably, nevertheless, is that it’s general design is changing so much that it will in fact look more like a four-door coupe than a conventional sedan. Motivation will originate from a variety of fuel and diesel engines, and there’s a plug-in hybrid being prepared as well.
2018 Peugeot 508 Design
On sides, I cannot help however believe Peugeot is aiming to troll Dumbo here. I mean, what is happening with those really long mirrors? They extend from the corners of the doors for exactly what looks like permanently, which doesn’t always look bad however isn’t exactly appealing at this point, either. The door trim panels appear like they have actually been reworked. From the appearance of things, the armrest is more angled than previously. I need to question if this will really make the armrest easier or more comfortable to use, but it does enable a bigger storage area down below. And, from what I can make it, it appears like there’s a digital instrument cluster ahead of that steering wheel. It might just be a big, horizontal screen in between analog assesses, but we cannot make that much out. For that, we’ll just need to wait and see. With any luck, the infotainment screen in the center stack will be larger, and less recessed, and could even use some kind of gesture control. Phone connectivity need to be a basic feature across the line.
2018 Peugeot 508 Engine
Considering that the 508’s introduction back in 2011, it has actually been used with a variety of gasoline and diesel engines. That’s not anticipated to change with the 2018 Peugeot 508, nevertheless, what engines will be is still a mystery since the time of this writing. In current type, the 508 can be had with a 1.6-liter gasoline mill that’s great for 162 horse power, a 1.6-liter diesel mill that’s excellent for 118 horsepower, a 2.0-liter diesel great for 147.5 horsepower, or a 2.0-liter good for 178 horsepower. The latter of which is the only choice readily available 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 opt for the EAT6, six-speed automated.
2018 Peugeot 508 Debut
We anticipate to see debut the 2018 Peugeot 508 at some point in next year. Thinking about the 2018 Peugeot 508 is set to be sportier and more large, it’s rather most likely that pricing will increase across the board a bit. It should not jump much but anticipate to pay a little more than what you would if you bought an existing model at this moment in time.
