When it comes to a fantastic all-rounder, you can’t go past a sedan and Peugeot have taken this perennial favourite to the next level with the 2018 version of Peugeot 508 sedan. With a sharp design, roomy interior and technological features, this sedan is set to take Australia by storm when it makes an appearance later this year. Let’s take a closer look at what the new 508 sedan has to offer.
The Peugeot design team have updated the look of the 508 sedan and given it a sleek, lowered profile for a sportier feel. The lowered roofline and slim headlights give a streamlined, feline appearance and includes stunning frameless doors which adds to the overall aesthetic. When it comes to dimensions, the car is 4.7 metres long and 1.4 metres tall. The 508 has the signature claw design rear lights and the full LED headlamps and daytime running lights are both highly functional and aesthetically striking.
Peugeot have provided a simple, classic design for the interior of the 508 and it comes complete with the minimalist i-Cockpit which features a compact steering wheel, high resolution 12.3” digital display instrument panel and 10” touch screen with multimedia functionality. Although the 508 may look streamlined, it boasts plenty of room 487 litres of boot space which expands even further when the rear seats are folded down. When it comes to appearance, Peugeot have utilised a number of different materials to achieve the final look.
Peugeot are committed to setting the standard when it comes to sedans and have included a number of advanced technological features in the 2018 508. The design includes the EMP2 platform which is designed to be light yet strong with advanced front and rear suspension systems. In terms of power, there are a number of engine options available for the 508 including a new 1.6-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder and 1.5 litres and 2.0 litre turbo diesel engines.
Safety is paramount
As you would expect from Peugeot, safety was a significant consideration in the design of the 508 sedan with the inclusion of a number of safety features including adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, automated emergency braking up to 140km/h, lane keeping assistance, blind spot monitoring and speed limit recognition, as well as the segment-first inclusion of night vision assistance. All of these technologies combine to give the ultimate peace of mind on the road.
