2019 Peugeot 508 Allure 2.0 BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT8 Driven

2019 Peugeot 508 Allure 2.0 BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT8 Driven

New Peugeot 508 is a fantastic saloon with french charm and the right cards to play the Germans

It was 2010 when the rules changed after two Peugeot models were killed off: the 607, which was almost completely based on the 605 model from 1989, and the 407, which seemed like it was roaming between segments in an attempt to get into the wallets of two social strata. It wasn’t like Peugeot roamed around wearing blindfolds, though. This was more of an attempt at creating a global trend founded on personal identity; however, Peugeot couldn’t find its ground when it came to cars whose length was more than 4,5 meters (177 inches).

Mind you, Peugeot wasn’t the only one, as similar strategies were employed by Volvo, Renault, and even Ford. And then they were back with another attempt – one car that would be interesting to those in need of a spacious family car, but also those who were in search for a business saloon or the second best thing at least. As the wheelbase for the 607 was 2.800 mm (110.23 in), and 2.725 mm (107.28 in) for the 407, Peugeot found itself in uncharted territories in 2010 given that its 508 (albeit shorter than the 607), had a wheelbase of 2.817 mm.

So, the two generations of the 508 model found its way to more than 400,000 buyers in Europe alone. Despite steadily declining sales figures, Peugeot wasn’t ready to euthanize the model. Instead, the company decided to cut the administrative costs, and adequately entice its designers and engineers. They came up with a new product and Peugeot revealed it in March 2018 at the Geneva International Auto Show as the new 508.

The Geneva-bound Peugeot 508 Sport Engineering Concept Hits 62 mph in 4.2 Seconds

Peugeot will bring a high performance electrified version of the 508 sedan to the 2019 Geneva motor show, although, sadly, like other previous bonkers fast electrified Peugeot concepts, it probably won’t see the production line. And, that’s a pity, because the 508 looks like it goes much faster than it actually does and this injection of extra go is just what it needs.

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

2019 Peugeot 508 SW

We really have to come out and say it straight off the bat: the Peugeot 508 SW is one of the best looking estate- or wagon-style vehicles on the market right now at any price. It builds on the striking but stylish look of the 508 sedan but adds extra coolness and practicality courtesy of the wagon shape.

It debuted a few months after the three-box hatch (which looks like a sedan, but it really isn’t) was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva motor show, where people flocked around the Peugeot stand to get a better look at it - I’ve literally never seen a motor show stand more crowded, and as I was approaching it, I thought Peugeot had unveiled a surprise concept. In the end, it was actually the production-spec 508.

The 508 SW I think looks even better than the already pretty hatchback, especially since it’s not really a boxy, traditional wagon, but more of a fastback/shooting brake type of vehicle. Unusually for a load lugger of its type, it ticks the “looks like it’s moving while standing still” cliché box.

2019 Peugeot 508 SW GT

Months after the reveal of the striking new generation Peugeot 508 sedan, the French company released the first tidbits about the new wagon called the Peugeot 508 SW. It comes in many different guises including one with the small, 1.5-liter diesel engine, but its beefier and most advanced versions come with the 508 SW GT plaque. It is still the 508 SW but with added goodies that provoke the sense of upscale styling, high-end tech, and engaging driving characteristics.

2018 Peugeot 508

2018 Peugeot 508

The Next-gen 508 is getting ready for its introduction in 2018

The new Peugeot 508 is finally here, and boy is it something else. It comes to market with an all-new look that shifts it from the boring sedan marketplace to a place where the worlds greatest sports sedans call home. Peugeot dropped the roof, dropped the length, and made this thing a true four-door coupe. It’s stylish and sexy but comes with loads of intelligent safety features and the choice of six engines that range anywhere between 130 and 225 horsepower. Those figures may not be on the right side of impressive, but we’re talking about an economically priced vehicle, not something that wears a BMW or Audi badge, right?

2012 Peugeot 508 RXH

Peugeot joined the battle of hybrids and presented its new 508 RXH hybrid at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new vehicle represents Peugeot’s next step into the world of green technologies and continues the road opened by its predecessors.

The 508 RHX is based on the 508 touring and is equipped with a hybrid system which consists of a 2.0 liter HDi engine paired with a 38 hp electric motor, offering a total output of 200 hp.

The car is pretty hard to be put in a distinct category as is basically a hybrid estate with the abilities of an SUV which puts it on the same line with models like the Audi A4 Allroad or Volkswagen Passat Alltrack.

The new Peugeot 508 RXH was designed for those who search for a green vehicle but aren’t ready to sacrifice space, comfort and utility.

2011 Peugeot 508 RXH

2011 Peugeot 508 RXH

After introducing its sedan and station wagon models, Peugeot has unveiled the new 508 RXH a few months before the SUV’s official debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

This new model combines a 2.0-liter HDi engine with a 38 HP electric motor for a total output of 200 HP and CO2 emissions of just 109 g/km. The car’s diesel-electric HYbrid4 - as found in Peugeot’s 3008 Hybrid4 - will deliver a total of 208 HP and a peak torque of 331 lbs-ft. It will be combined with a four-wheel drive system and will deliver a fuel economy of 67.2 mpg.

Peugeot has refined the 508 model by widening and raising it to create a smooth and refined SUV. It will be distinguished by LED lights that are visible during the day and night, and "give an impression of three vertical ’lion claws’. The new SUV will also feature a line of distinctive colors and luxurious materials, like the premium quality interior and upholstery.

The fancy aspect will also be covered with a range of technology outfitted for the 508 RXH. The model will be equipped with an Open & Go Keyless system, electric front seats, a head up display, 18" wheels, a panoramic glass roof, dark-tinted acoustic laminated side windows, and the latest generation audio and satellite navigation units.

The 508 RXH will be unveiled as a world premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September 2011, and will be on sale in Spring 2012.
