Details and images of the new Peugeot 508 have emerged. The spearhead of the Stellantis group, Peugeot is continuing its path towards premium. But its beautiful sedan is already mid-career and it cannot allow itself to be taken market share in this segment with high added value and especially high notoriety. It is for this set of reasons that the lion firm will soon offer us an aesthetic and technological facelift.
Nibbled by the surging SUV, the sedan segment must reinvent itself. When renewing its 508 sedans in 2018, Peugeot made an “all-in” by focusing its reputation on style. And the least we can say is that the stylists have succeeded with one of the most sporty and attractive sedans around.
But now, the automotive world is so made that it must already be given a facelift. Here is the time of the advent of the Peugeot 508 facelift vintage 2021.
This new generation of Peugeot 508 will not make its revolution under the hood. At the same time, we must admit that the organ bank is one of the most modern and efficient at the moment. So, it is not surprising to see the renewal of the current thermal powertrains.
New 508 2022 Engine
We are therefore talking about the two versions of its 1.6 PureTech gasoline which has 180 or 225 horsepower. In diesel, Peugeot offers its BlueHDI engines. The 1.5 BlueHDI has 130 guns, while the 2.0 BlueHDI offers 160 to 180. All these mechanics inherit as standard from the new 8-speed automatic transmission EAT8.
Regarding the engines, the plug-in hybrid variants of 225 and 360 horsepower, we are talking about a more powerful battery. This would increase the electric autonomy to more than 50 km. Everything for the logo!
The most striking thing about this Peugeot 508 facelift is, as you can see, the design. If the designers did not touch the line in its entirety, they had to review the front face to integrate the new large logo of the brand. In addition, we can appreciate the new optics with three claws.
Peugeot 508 2022 Interior
Inside, the furniture remains the same, except for the screens. This Peugeot 508 vintage 2022 will benefit from redesigned digital onboard instrumentation. It gains an even more rewarding 3D display. Just below, we find the small Peugeot steering wheel, but with a few additional buttons, those of the multimedia, which are no longer hidden below the indicators on the steering column. But the real novelty is right in the center of the dashboard with the third screen including 5 “i-toggles”.
Under the central 10-inch screen is a second long screen where you can attach 5 widgets, 5 shortcuts. They are fully customizable and can be very varied: from a simple radio station to a daily commute, including a specific temperature of the air conditioning.
The central screen is also customizable with “pages” also made up of widgets, larger and more complete. It feels like being in front of a smartphone designed horizontally.
