The new exterior design of the Peugeot 508 is sharper and more robust, while the car’s spectacular interior includes an evolution of the iconic i-Cockpit. Under pressure from a diverse range of customer preferences and designs, especially from the SUV market, the large saloon now only finds favour through offering wider variety and adopting a more pronounced identity.
“The design completes an entirely revamped range. It benefits from all the stylistic features we included in our latest concept cars like the Peugeot Exalt and Instinct. The i-Cockpit in the new 508 is actually taken directly from the Exalt concept car”, said Gilles Vidal, Peugeot Director of Design. At first glance, the new sedan surprises onlookers with an energetic and expressive presence and the aerodynamic lines of the vehicle are reminiscent of the coupé style.
The finely fashioned, radiator grill with chrome-plated chequerboard asserts itself between the full Led headlights. With the famous lion centred on its radiator grill and the 508 logo upon the nose of the bonnet, pays tribute to its acclaimed predecessors, the 504. The roof line is low and sleek, following the premium sector design cues. The low glazed surfaces further sharpen the car’s outline and reveal frameless doors. Spanning the rear end and framed between the rear lights is the glossy black horizontal strip that now characterises Peugeot’s latest vehicles. Yet what immediately stand out are the three-dimensional Full LED rear lights.
